Orthopedic Biomaterials, The World Market, 2nd Edition

Orthopedic biomaterial products, which can be organic or synthetic in nature, are implanted into or near a bone fracture to facilitate healing or to compensate for a lack or loss of bone tissue. Biomaterials used in orthopedic surgery include autografts, allografts, xenografts, ceramics, polymers, bone growth factors and synovial fluid substitutes. Among the prominent applications for orthopedic biomaterials are surface coatings for hip prostheses, bone cements, bone defect fillers, and fracture fixation plates.

Technological advancement and an aging, active population are the principal drivers behind the market for orthopedic biomaterials. Kalorama's Orthopedic Biomaterials, World Market, one of the few resources available on this market, looks at the Market for biomaterials, including the following segments:

  • Allograft Products (including DBM, Machined Bone and Standard Allograft)
