Market Brief: Global Orthobiologics Market Will Reach $2.3Bn By 2023 With Highest Growth In Cartilage Replacement
The global market for orthobiologics for musculoskeletal soft tissue replacement and regeneration is expected to reach $2.3bn by 2023, according to a new report by Informa's Meddevicetracker. This highly competitive market, which is led by Arthrex and other large and smaller players, continues to grow amid the rising prevalence of musculoskeletal soft tissue injuries and osteoarthritis. High prices of implants, the limited availability of donated tissue and limited reimbursement for synthetic scaffolds are limiting growth in this market.
BioNTech's $150m offering, after a prior large venture capital financing, gives it the third-largest market cap for a newly public drug developer in the US. Also, Innovent raises $300m in Hong Kong offering, Heron leads US follow-ons and Five Prime restructures to save $20m annually.
Merrimack's wind-down continues with an activist challenge, but investors approved the Vical/Brickell Biotech reverse merger. Also, the past month's IPO slump may reverse course and HiFiBiO's $67m Series C leads recent financings.
