Soft tissue includes tendons, ligaments, fascia, skin, fibrous tissues, fat, and synovial membranes (which are connective tissue), and muscles, nerves and blood vessels (which are not connective tissue). It is sometimes defined by what it is not. Soft Tissue is a set of tissues in the body that maintains the form of the body and its organs and provides cohesion and internal support. The soft tissues include several types of fibrous tissue that vary only in their density and cellularity.

Scope & Importance
Soft tissue is the second most ample of all the tissue types in the body after connective tissue. The form and shape of the body, its organs, muscles, bones and the body’s construction are determined by the properties of soft tissue.
The proportions of the components of soft tissue vary from one part of the body to another depending on the local structural requirements. In some areas, the Soft tissue is loosely organized and highly cellular; in others, its fibrous components predominate; and in still others, the ground substance may be its most conspicuous feature. The anatomical classification of the various types of Soft tissue is based largely upon the relative abundance and arrangement of these components. Tissue arising chiefly from the embryonic mesoderm that is characterized by a highly vascular matrix and includes collagenous, elastic, and reticular fibers, adipose tissue, cartilage, and bone. It forms the supporting and connecting structures of the body.
The global soft tissue repair market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 7.5% from 2014 to 2019 to reach $14.7 billion in 2019. The increasing incidence of soft tissue injuries among the active aging population, increasing participation in sports, increasing obesity rate, and increasing healthcare expenditure & lack of substitutes for soft tissue repair surgery are the major factors driving market growth.
The soft tissue repair market is witnessing a gradual shift towards biological meshes from conventional synthetic meshes for soft tissue repair. Such products offer enhanced biocompatibility, strength, and improved aesthetics. However, the high costs of surgical procedures, and the lack of reimbursement are some major factors that could hinder the growth of this market to a certain extent.
