Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Medical Ceramics Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global medical ceramics market: 3M ESPE, CoorsTek Medical, Straumann, and Stryker.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Amedica, APC International, BCE Special Ceramics, and CeraRoot.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in some industries prefer customized ceramics for their components. The production of customized components is not always feasible as customization increases the production cost and time. Market players, instead of mass-producing simple shapes, prefer to manufacture ceramics according to the buyers (OEM) requirement. Such customized production of technical ceramics requires additional efforts during the stages of molding and formulation of components. Specific customization needs for different applications such as bone void fillers, spinal fusion, bone augmentation, osteoconductive scaffold for bone regeneration and spine cage inserts are acting as a trend for the growth of the ceramic medical market.”

According to the report, rise in elderly population will be a key driver for market growth. The improved standards of healthcare and sophisticated treatment options have increased the life expectancy of individuals. In industrialized nations, the population of individuals aged over 60 years rose from 12% in 1950 to 24% in 2015. The number is expected to reach 32% (418 million) by 2050. In developing countries, this population increased from 6% in 1950 to 9.5% in 2015 and is expected to reach 20% (1.6 billion) by 2050.

Further, the report states that the surface characteristics of these polymers can be modified at the production stages itself, which reduces the overall production time. The liquid nature of polypropylene fumarate before crosslinking allows it to be injected into the body, thus leading to the formation of asymmetrical implants. Further, polymer solutions that can be activated by light are being developed. In addition, advances such as cartilage and bone tissue engineering using stem cells and the application of natural matrices and matrices in medical implants will pose challenges to the adoption of medical ceramics.
