A Slowdown in the Demand for Sports Medicine Points to A Looming Recession

The recession's negative impact on young adults' physical activity highlights the need for policymakers to consider the impact of major economic downturns on the physical activity of young adults.

Development in regenerative medicine in the sporting arena focuses predominantly on cartilage, tendon, ligament, meniscal, and skeletal muscle injuries. The future contains a trend toward prevention through genetics, nutrigenomics, and numerous monitors and wearables in sports medicine which is further expected to drive the global sports medicine market in the forecasted period.


Growing Emphasis on Developing New Advanced Sports Medicine Products

There have been many recent advancements in the products category of sports medicine such as rotator cuff repair, high altitude simulation training, anti-gravity treadmill, exoskeletons, virtual and augmented reality, and hip/knee arthroscopy that are revolutionizing the sports medicine market. For instance, in November 2022, Smith+Nephew announced the introduction of its JOURNEY II ROX Total Knee Solution – a reverse hybrid construct for total knee arthroplasty.
