Global Medical Composite Material Market for Orthopedics 2015-2019

About Medical Composite Materials

Medical composite materials refers to a compact product formed by mixing two or more components that offer greater performance compared to the individual components. Some of the major benefits of medical composite materials include high strength-to-weight ratio, excellent fatigue endurance, corrosion resistance, good impact resistance, and malleability. These materials can be easily manipulated to form complex designs, owing to their different biomechanical and biocompatible properties. Medical composite materials are used in the production of prosthetics and implants in the orthopedic sector.

The global medical composite material market can be segmented into three divisions based on type: Fiber composite, polymer metal composite, and polymer ceramic composite. Fiber composites are lighter and renders great external impact resistance, and thus is used in manufacturing various components such as prosthetics and implants.

Technavio analysts forecast the global medical composite material market for orthopedics to grow at a CAGR of 7.23% during 2014-2019.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Medical Composite Material Market for Orthopedics 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Medical Composite Material Market for Orthopedics: Icotec, Polygon Composites, PolyOne, Quatro Composites and Toray

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: 3M, Advanced Glassfiber Yarns, APT Ireland, Asahi Glass, Axial, Bal Seal Engineering, BGF Industries, The Binani Group 3b-The Fibreglass, C K Composites, Chomarat Group, Chongqing Polycomp International, ComposiFlex, Composites Horizons, Cospheric, Dennert Poraver, Eko Export, Evonik Röhm, Glasforms, Henkel, Heuchel, Induchem Holding, Johns Manville, Jushi Group, Kanfit, Luminex, Luxfer Group, Materion, Matsumoto Yushi Seiyaku, Medical Composite Technologies, Merit Medical Systems, Mitsubishi Rayon, Mo Sci, Momentive Performance Materials, Nippon Sheet Glass, Osthoff Omega Group, Otto Bock, Owens Corning, Partial Hand Solutions, Phosporex,PlastiComp, PolyMedex Discovery Group, Pultruder Glasforms, Refitech, RTP, Saertex Group, Saint-Gobain Vetrotex, Solid Concepts, Taishan Fiberglass, The Luxfer Group, Vanguard Plastics, Vermont Composites, Victrex and Web Industries

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A new class of composite materials formed through nano technology is being used in the field of soft tissue implants. These nano fibers are used for various applications in the medical field. In addition, nano fibers have good durability and adhesive properties. Synthetic bioactive and bioresorbable composite materials are being used as scaffolds in tissue engineering. Nano fiber scaffold fabrication is cost effective and user-friendly. Nano fibers also help with problems relating to inadequate cell infiltration.”

According to the report, medical composite materials are being used in implantable medical devices. Composite materials help in biocompatibility and osteoconductivity. Biodegradable polymers are modified with a ceramic component to form implants. Carbon fiber/PEEK polymer composites are also being used to manufacture orthopedic implantable material as other materials can lead to osteolysis and implant loosening. Corrosion is the major cause implant failure.

Further, the report states that volatility in raw material prices is one of the major challenges confronting the market.
