Global Bioceramics Market Research (MRFR Insights)

The bioceramics market size is projected to register a market size of 24.92 billion with a CAGR of 10.10% from 2022 to 2030. Bioceramics are ceramic materials that have been specifically designed for use as medical and dental implants. These are typically utilized to replace bodily hard tissue such as bone and teeth. Alumina, zirconia, and hydroxyapatite are common bioceramics (a form of calcium phosphate). Ceramics are inorganic, highly inert, hard, and brittle polycrystalline materials with great compressive strength, good electric and thermal insulators, and a pleasing aesthetic appearance. The aging population has increased in osteoarthritis, which will drive demand for bioceramics for knee and hip replacement replacements and implants. However, alumina price volatility is projected to influence industry expansion negatively. Medical polymers with bioceramic-like characteristics are predicted to stymie growth over the forecast period. Over the projection period, partial joint replacements, less invasive procedures, and lower surgical costs are likely to create new prospects for market expansion. Thus, these factors are anticipated to drive the growth of the  bioceramics market.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

COVID-19 has had an impact on the manufacturing and sales of new automobiles all over the world because the initial outbreak disturbed the entire ecosystem. With the COVID-19 pandemic afflicting the healthcare sector, bioceramics' market share fell due to poor or new requirements. Because of the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic's deeper and wider penetration into rural regions, governments worldwide were obliged to enforce successive phases of lockdown to halt the virus's spread. OEMs had to wait until lockdowns were released before restarting production, and bioceramics manufacturing was also halted, causing liquidity concerns for tiny tier II and tier III businesses.

Bioceramics Market Dynamics

The market is expanding due to increased demand from the orthopedic and dental implant sectors in countries such as Japan, the US, Germany, and China. Due to ongoing advancements in medical technology and services, the expanding medical industry will likely boost growth during the projection period. Better access to modern medical facilities due to increased consumption and rising disposable money has resulted in earlier surgical intervention, which is projected to increase product usage. Furthermore, increased dental implant procedures and rising dental injuries will drive product demand during the next seven years. For instance, Amedica Corporation was awarded a patent by the US Patent and Trademark Office in October 2020 for articulating intervertebral devices, related equipment, systems, and techniques to solve issues associated with standard transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) surgeries.

Market Drivers:

  • Application of bioceramics in electrical devices

The rising medical sector in emerging nations and the use of these ceramics in electronic devices have been cited as important growth drivers in the bio-ceramics and piezoceramics market. Some emerging countries are seeing an increase in osteoarthritis due to an aging population. These ceramics are utilized in hip replacement and knee implants to address this problem. Ceramics have excellent tensile and compressive strength, which is why they are employed as implants. Furthermore, the demand for these ceramics is increasing for producing healthcare devices such as hearing aids, artificial joints, and cardiovascular device components.

With approximately 3.5 billion individuals, oral disorders are a severe health burden for many countries, according to the World Health Organization. Dental caries, oro-dental trauma, oral cancer, and periodontal (gum) disease are a few examples. As a result, spending on dental treatment has increased dramatically.

Market Restraints:

  • Key Materials' Brittleness limits future Sales of Bioceramics

Even though bioceramics have several beneficial qualities, such as lightweight material composition and improved patient comfort, several disadvantages are anticipated to limit market growth prospects during the long-term forecast period. For instance, the low mechanical qualities of all calcium phosphate bioceramics generated in a porous form, such as brittleness and low fatigue strength, are prevalent negative. Since of this fragility, patients may experience issues because they may need to see their surgeons more frequently to update the implant.

Market Opportunities:

  • A shift in medical tourism

The shift in medical tourism is a big opportunity in the bio-ceramics and piezoceramics business. People from the US and the UK have traveled to nations such as Malaysia, India, and China for medical care. These countries provide high-quality healthcare services at a minimal cost. Patients, for example, come to India for dental implants because of the inexpensive cost of the operation. Ceramics are used in these implants, which has raised the demand for these products. In addition, there is a growing awareness of the importance of oral and health hygiene. These elements are projected to open up new prospects for industry participants.

Segment Overview

By Material Insights

The bio ceramics market segmentation, based on material, is alumina, zirconia, and others. The bioceramics market growth was prominently high under the alumina segment in 2021 due to properties such as hardness and excellent wear resistance. Because of their bio-inertness, robustness, and chemical inertness, alumina bioceramics are suited for bone and dental implants.

By Application Insights

The bioceramics market segmentation, based on application, is orthopedics, dental care, and bio-medical. Because of the increasing surgical intervention trend for knee, shoulder, and hip implants, the orthopedic application sector accounted for the largest proportion of the worldwide bio-ceramic market in 2021 and is also anticipated to lead the market with the highest growth rate in the forecast period. Because of the growing senior population, the demand for bioceramics for hip joint and knee replacements and implants is increasing.
