The artificial ligaments market is segmented on the basis of application and region. Based on application, the market is segmented into knee injuries, shoulder injuries, foot and ankle injuries, and other injuries (spine and hip injuries).

In 2018, the knee injuries segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global artificial ligaments market. This can be attributed to the increasing incidence of knee injuries, discomfort at the harvest site due to conventional surgical treatment methods that use autografts and allografts, rising participation in sports, and advantages of artificial tendons and ligaments as compared to autografts and allografts.
