A variety of bioceramics, materials especially developed for medical and dental applications, are finding a wide ranging set of applications across a number of medical fields. The biocompatibility of these medical ceramics makes them highly usable in prosthetics, surgical implants, and a number of invasive medical devices and tools. A number of medical ceramics have been approved for use across these and a variety of other applications by several national and international regulatory bodies such as the U.S. FDA. The field is ripe with research and development activities and many more medical ceramics with higher levels of mechanical strength, efficiency and flexibility are expected to enter the global market in the near future.
Medical ceramics are materials that are utilized for a variety of human contact and non-contact applications in the medical industry. These materials are chiefly used in the manufacture of medical implants, devices, disposables (gloves, vials, tools), and packaging. Medical ceramics are biocompatible in nature and either remain inert or are easily processed by the human body. Medical ceramics are classified into bio-inert, bio-active, bio-resorbable, and piezo-ceramics. Bio-inert ceramics form bulk of the medical ceramics market and include aluminum oxide, zirconia, and carbon. Key bio-active ceramics, such as are hydroxyapatite (HAP), glass & bioglass, and zirconiaalumina composite, are used as formative materials as well as coatings for implants, devices, and disposables. Piezo-ceramics have gained popularity for use within electronic implants due to their tolerance for extreme temperatures. DRO: The vast rise in customer confidence regarding artificial implant surgeries, rising base of affluent consumers undergoing such surgeries, and an encouraging improvement in healthcare infrastructures of emerging countries are collectively contributing to the increased global demand for medical ceramics.
The market is also driven due to the rapid influx of novel product varieties in the market with higher mechanical strengths and flexibility. However, although medical ceramics are known to be nontoxic, there are cases where very small traces of radioelements are found even in the ceramics that are fully refined. As even trace quantities of radioelements can have devastating effects on tissues and organs, this becomes a highly debatable concern and could lead to negative sentiments among consumers. This factor is expected to hamper the overall growth prospects of the market to a certain extent over the report’s forecast period. Nevertheless, latest product varieties in the market, such as electronic implantable ceramic sensors, are expected to lead to the generation of new opportunities for the market in the near future. Apart from several advantages, global electric wheelchair market is also facing some challenges such as high cost of electric wheel chair and lack of awareness and infrastructure. However, this issues are expected to reduce during forecast period.
