Revenue of Bioresorbable Polymers Market from 2017 to 2021 Compared to Demand Outlook for 2022 to 2032

As per the Global Bioresorbable Polymers Market research by Fact.MR - a market research and competitive intelligence provider, historically, from 2017 to 2021, the market value of the Bioresorbable Polymers Market increased at around 12.4% CAGR.

The key revenue drivers, which affected the Bioresorbable Polymers Market, are an increase in surgical interventions, growing demand for drug delivery applications, and biocompatible medical devices.

Numerous medical applications, such as coronary and peripheral vascular frameworks, tissue obsession screws, bone pins, grapples, and medication delivery, utilize bioresorbable materials. Materials such as polymers, metals, glassware, and organic roots, such as regular collagen, are employed in the creation of these polymers and are frequently used in a variety of medical procedures.

What Factors are Propelling Bioresorbable Polymers Demand?

Bioresorbable polymers are commonly utilized in medical applications to create stents, sutures, and scaffolds that are put inside the human body during surgery to maintain the organ.

They are also employed inside the human body as controlled drug-release implants. Once the patient's organ begins to recover, bioresorbable polymers progressively dissolve and are totally absorbed in the body when their role is completed.

Because these products are absorbed by the body, the patient does not require a second surgical procedure to remove them. As a result, the entire operation is both cost-effective and patient-friendly. Bioresorbable polymers are utilized during maxillofacial surgery to aid in the healing process and are broken down when no longer required.

Consumers today are more health concerned, as they do not want to be subjected to unneeded drugs and medical treatments that have a variety of negative health impacts and ultimately damage the body. Therefore, the demand for Bioresorbable Polymers is rising in surgeries.

Additive manufacturing and electrospinning technology have enhanced drug delivery, implant design, and tissue engineering. Electrospinning is a technology for producing nanoscale fibers from polymer solutions for the construction of structures and materials that closely resemble the cellular matrix within biological tissues, making them valuable in the repair and regeneration of damaged tissue applications.

The biodegradability of bioresorbable polymers makes them an ideal choice for electrospinning and additive manufacturing, thus boosting the demand over the forecast period.

Another key factor influencing the global bioresorbable polymers market is the rising demand for bioresorbable polymers for medication administration. Bioresorbable polymers are ideal for medication delivery due to their chemical neutrality and safe in-body breakdown. This factor fuels the market expansion for Bioresorbable Polymers.

Which factors can restrain the Growth of the Bioresorbable Polymers Market in the Future?

As bioresorbable polymers are primarily used to create sutures, which are used in traditional surgeries, therefore the reduction in demand for traditional surgeries has a direct impact on the demand for bioresorbable polymers.

It costs significantly to develop new bioresorbable medical equipment, and it often takes new goods more than 7-8 years to receive commercial approval. For instance, the FDA in the United States has mandated that producers of bioresorbable medical devices acquire premarket approval (PMA) before releasing their goods onto the market.

To prove this, the product must provide accurate clinical trial data, which must be presented with the premarket approval application. For a product to enter the clinical trial stage and then pass the clinical trials, the time and expense requirements are quite high, and the likelihood that the product will be approved is very low.

Additionally, it has been crucial for such devices to have the ability to provide clinically important data demonstrating clinical trial clearance. Due to the fact that bioresorbable medical devices fall under the classification of Class III items, significant regulatory compliance is required.

This is a significant barrier to the commercialization of innovative bioresorbable polymers.

A significant restraint in the anticipated time will be the cost of bioresorbable polymers, which is greater than the cost of traditional medical polymers. Considering that bioresorbable polymers can cost more than US$ 2,200 per kilogram. All these factors are reducing the demand for bioresorbable polymers and acting as a restrain for the Bioresorbable Polymers market.

Region-wise Insights

Why North America is projected to offer a significant opportunity in the Bioresorbable Polymers Market?

During the projection period, North America is projected to be the leading market for Bioresorbable Polymers. The reason behind this is the technological advancement in the healthcare sector in the United States and Canada. In 2020 the research and development spending of Canada crossed US$ 25 Bn.

The United States is hub for research and development in the healthcare sector. By 2020, the United States had invested 245.1 billion dollars in medical research and development which is driving the Bioresorbable Polymers Market.
