Meniscus plays an important role in human knee and has various functions such as shock absorption, load transmission across the knee joint, and joint nutrition. It occupies nearly 60% contact area between the tibial and femoral cartilage surfaces, contributing to knee joint stability and overall joint conformity. Meniscal tear is one of the common injuries caused during sports and athletics. Severe injury could require meniscus repair surgery. Various devices are used during the surgery such as inserters, depth probe, suture, and other instruments. 

Rise in demand for meniscal repair systems, technological advancements such as automated deployment of sutures & development of miniaturized system, and increase in prevalence of orthopedic and trauma injuries are projected to drive the global meniscal repair systems market during the forecast period. Additionally, launch of new products by market players and increase in emphasis on sports and trauma injuries fuel the growth of the market. For instance, in May 2018, DePuy Synthes launched TRUESPAN Meniscal Repair System, a knee arthroscopy solution to simplify meniscal repair, thereby increasing the reach of arthroscopic procedures in countries in Europe, Middle East, & Africa (EMEA). In April 2018, Ceterix Orthopaedics received FDA approval for its NovoStitch Pro Meniscal Repair System, a next-generation meniscal repair system. The product represents the company’s innovative solution developed for arthroscopic knee repair which will enable it to achieve growth in the market. In April 2016, Zimmer Biomet acquired Cayenne Medical to achieve growth in its sports medicine segment.
