Increasing Use of Stem Cell Therapy is Paving New Growth Avenues for Players in the Nerve Repair Market

Nerve repair and regeneration products are used by medical professionals to restore normal function to damaged nerves. Nerve injuries are common in the upper (hand and arm) and lower (leg) extremities. Nerve damage can be caused either due to blunt trauma (such as an impact from a fall or from traction injuries from motor vehicle accidents) or sharp trauma (such as from a direct cut from a knife). Surgical nerve repair involves the exploration of the injured nerve and removal of injured tissue from the nerve endings.

The Nerve Repair and Regeneration Marketis expected to reach USD 10.59 Billion by 2022 from USD 5.79 Billion in 2017, at a CAGR of 12.9%. Increasing number of neurological disorders, rising geriatric population, and technological advancements are the major factors that are driving the growth of this market.
