How is Increasing Emphasis on Dental Care Spearheading Bioceramics Adoption?

According to W.H.O, oral diseases pose a major health burden for many countries, with nearly 3.5 Bn patients. These include dental caries, oro-dental trauma, oral cancer, and periodontal (gum) disease, among others. Consequently, spending on dental care has augmented significantly.

Therefore, dentists are leveraging highly advanced implant solutions to prevent teeth loss amongst patients suffering from such conditions. Hence, the popularity of bioceramics is surging rapidly. As they are non-toxic and bioinert, bioceramics implants are the preferred implant choices amongst dental practitioners.

Will Rising Prevalence of Musculoskeletal Disorders Heighten Bioceramics Implants Uptake?

Approximately 1.71 Bn people globally suffer from musculoskeletal conditions, significantly limiting mobility and dexterity, prompting early retirement from work, lower levels of well-being, and reduced ability to participate in society, concludes W.H.O.

As the global population expands, musculoskeletal disorders are multiplying, with conditions such as osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and back & neck pain becoming common.

Hence, medical practitioners are experimenting with orthopedic implants, incorporating lightweight and flexible material to reduce discomfort amongst patients, broadening bioceramics demand outlook.

Will Brittle Nature of Key Materials Impede Future Sales of Bioceramics?

Although bioceramics are endowed with significant advantageous properties, including lightweight material composition and enhanced patient comfort, there are several drawbacks that are likely to impede market growth prospects in the long-run forecast period.

For instance, a common drawback to all calcium phosphate bioceramics produced in a porous form is their low mechanical properties, such as brittleness and low fatigue strength. Consequently, such fragility may create problems in patients, as they may need to visit their surgeons more often to get the implant replaced.

Why are Carbon Bioceramics Acquiring Popularity?

By product, sales of carbon bioceramics are anticipated to surge at a CAGR of over 7% until 2031, attributed to their high density and enhanced fiber strength. Moreover, their light weight offers convenience to patients as well as surgeons in terms of implant positioning.

Vitreous carbon is also used as it is light, resistant to wear, and compatible with blood. It is mostly used in cardiac valve replacement. Diamond can be used for the same application, but in coating form.

Will Bioceramics Usage be Maximum for Dental Implant Manufacturing?

As per Fact.MR’s bioceramics market insights, demand for dental implants generated over 40% of the total revenue until 2020. Increasing demand for ceramic-based crowns and bridges owing to close resemblance to original teeth are majorly driving growth in this segment.

Simultaneously, growth across the orthopedic segment is also expected to incline, registering a CAGR of approximately 6% until 2031. Rising incorporation of key materials such as zirconium, aluminum and hydroxyapatite to reduce chances of dislocation shall drive growth in this segment.
