Bioceramics Industry Analysis from 2016-2020 Vs Future Demand Outlook for 2021-2031

Bioceramics market insights reveal a growth trajectory of around 6% CAGR from 2016 to 2020. Demand was largely spurred by continued advancements in biological implants for various surgical procedures, including orthopedic and dental.

Adjusting for COVID-19-induced recessionary pressures, the market for bioceramics was estimated at over US$ 14 Bn in 2020, and is forecast to top US$ 23 Bn by 2031, expanding at a CAGR exceeding 7%. Bioceramics sales forecasts are especially high across the U.S. and Chinese landscapes, given the fast-paced technological advancements in medical implants.  

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.
