Medical Composite Materials Market by Type (Fiber Composites, Polymer-Ceramic Composites, Polymer-Metal Composites), Application (Orthopedics, Dental, Diagnostic Imaging, Needles and Syringes, Microsphere), and Region 2024-2032
The global medical composite materials market size reached US$ 1,001.8 Million in 2023. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 1,690.3 Million by 2032, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 5.81% during 2024-2032. The increasing prevalence of joint problems, the widespread product utilization in diagnostic imaging systems, and significant improvement in the healthcare industry represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Medical composite materials are a blend of two or more materials with different chemical or physical properties. They are widely used in the place of plastic, steel, and aluminum to produce customized and complex products like prosthetics, advanced orthopedic devices, and body implants. Medical composite materials help to replace, restore, and improve the functions of degenerated or disturbed tissues and organs. They are also used in diagnostic instruments to lower the weight of the device, which assists in generating clearer images. Medical composite materials are durable, lightweight, corrosion-resistant, bio-compatible, and radiolucent. As a result, these materials find extensive applications in bone plates, intramedullary nails, bone replacement, dental fillings, and bone cement.
Medical Composite Materials Market Trends:
The increasing prevalence of joint problems is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Medical composite materials are used to manufacture artificial limbs and in orthopedic applications, such as bone fixation plates and hip joint replacement. Moreover, the widespread product utilization in diagnostic imaging systems, patient imaging tables, and accessories used in positron emission tomography (PET), X-ray, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Apart from this, the recent development of carbon fiber composite materials implanted into cartilage to promote biological resurfacing of damaged areas due to its load-carrying links in joint mechanisms of artificial limbs is providing an impetus to the market growth. In addition to this, key players are focusing on the utilization of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) for prosthetic limbs, and medical implants to replace damaged bone due to its lightweight structural properties is favoring the market growth. Furthermore, the increasing incidences of tooth decay and dental issues are propelling the market growth. Medical composite materials are widely used to restore a tooth surface to its natural shape and protect against biting forces, chewing motions, or accidental contact with a hard surface. Besides this, several organizations are widely developing different biodegradable medical composites and decreasing manufacturing costs, which, in turn, is positively influencing the market growth. Other factors, including the rising geriatric population, increasing expenditure capacities of consumers, significant growth in the healthcare industry, and the widespread product utilization in needles and syringes to improve performance, are anticipated to drive the market growth.
