Implant Biomaterials Market By Material Type (Metal & Alloy Biomaterials, Polymer Biomaterials, Composite Biomaterials, Natural Biomaterials), By Application (Orthopedics, Dental, Ophthalmic, Cardiovascular, Others) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

"Implant biomaterials market to exhibit lucrative growth during the forecast period"

The global implant biomaterials market is growing steadily, valued at US$ 34.8 Bn in 2017 and expected to attain US$ 64.0 Bn by 2026. Worldwide growing adoption of orthopedic implants, dental and cardiovascular procedures, usage of advanced biomaterials along with preference for minimally invasive surgeries drive the growth of the market. Furthermore, the rising medical tourism in developing nations, growing healthcare expenditure, swift approval of new advanced biomaterials, and growing demand for customized implants in the dental segment are also fuelling the overall implant biomaterials market. New technological development in CAD/CAM systems, rapid product commercialization and encouraging public and government initiatives in the prosthetics industry across various countries in the Asia pacific and Europe will further assist in the overall market growth.

Other developments influencing the overall growth include, innovation in computer-assisted implant dentistry (cloud), usage of polymeric biomaterials, novel formulations in polycarbonate urethanes and silicon. Increasing research and development on nanostructure, biomaterial surface & coating, improvement in the standardization of the properties of biomaterials, and enhancement in bio-functionalization for future infection prevention are gaining traction in the global market. However, product recalls (medical implants), future risk of foreign body-related infections (FBRIs), implant failures, and post-surgery infections are factors restraining the overall market growth during the forecast period.

"Greater prevalence of dental and bone infections and the presence of established players holds North America in dominant position"

North America contributes maximum revenue share in the overall implant biomaterials market, and is attributed to increasing orthopedic implant procedures along with the aging population, and higher adoption of branded biomaterials. According to a study by the American Dental Association, overall national dental expenditures in the U.S rose from US$ 114 Bn in 2014 and reached around US$ 117 Bn in 2015. Dynamics enhancing the overall industry growth include, the high prevalence of oral and dental infection, improved care along with growing expenditure on oral care, new technology assessment in the biomaterials, and increasing awareness and demand for aesthetic restorations in the cosmetic dentistry in North America. Increasing demand for biomaterials for oral surgery along with bone graft and membrane materials (bovine/allogenic/synthetic bone-graft materials) in developing nations is generating maximum revenue share in the dental industry. However, in lower economic nations of Africa, Asia, and Latin America, availability of cardiovascular, orthopedic and dental treatment is inadequate. Lack of specialized healthcare professionals, less or no expansion of branded products, less awareness and the high cost of advanced biomaterials along with no reimbursement are few factors restraining the overall growth of the market.
