Global Orthopedic Biomaterial Market Overview

Orthopedic Biomaterials Market Size was valued at USD 30.39 Billion in 2023. The Global Orthopedic Biomaterials industry is projected to grow from USD 33.33 Billion in 2024 to USD 64.22 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.56% during the forecast period (2024 - 2032). Orthopedic biomaterials are implanted in the human body as constituents. These devices are designed to perform certain biological functions by substituting or repairing different tissues such as bone, cartilage, or ligaments and tendons and even guiding bone repair when necessary.

Orthopedic Biomaterial Market

The growth of the orthopedic biomaterials market is driven by factors such as the growing demand for next-generation orthopedic biomaterials and the increasing prevalence of orthopedic diseases. In addition, the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases creates a lucrative opportunity for the market. However, lack of reimbursement and an ambiguous regulatory framework is likely to restrain the market growth.

COVID-19 Analysis:

The pandemic is likely to have devastating effects on the global economy, more intense than the global financial crisis during 2008-2009. It is affecting the demand and supply chain, which will severely hurt global trade. The top players in the market are expected to continue to fulfill the current demand for orthopedic biomaterials, including reconstructive joint replacements and spinal implants. Furthermore, various governments across the world are encouraging the key players to improve the current manufacturing facilities. However, with the decline in elective surgical procedures, the orthopedic biomaterials market is expected to witness a slump in 2020.

Orthopedic Biomaterial Market Trends


  • Increasing older population leading to an increase in the patient population

Geriatric individuals are more susceptible to orthopedic diseases. Thus, the growing geriatric population is likely to increase the demand for orthopedic biomaterials. According to the Office for National Statistics, in 2017, ~18% and 2.4% of the total UK population was aged over 65 years and 85 years, respectively. With the high incidence of joint replacement procedures, over 1 million hip and total knee replacement procedures are performed each year in the US. This huge number of joint and knee replacements is increasing the demand for orthopedic biomaterial. Therefore, the growing elderly population is anticipated to boost the growth of the global orthopedic biomaterials market over the assessment period.Growing demand for next-generation orthopedic biomaterials


  • Lack of reimbursements

Limited reimbursement coverage options are present for these products. The reimbursement for orthopedic biomaterials is also declining in various countries, which has impeded market growth.

Orthopedic Biomaterial Product Insights

  • Reconstructive Joint Replacements:

Reconstructive joint replacement is a medical procedure that includes the replacement of the damaged joint. It includes minor repair to total joint replacement, and offers pain relief as well as permanent solutions to joint disorders. Reconstructive joint replacements include various types of implants, such as knee replacement implants, hip replacement implants, and others. According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS), around 1.6 million hip and knee surgeries and 966,000 knee replacements were performed in the US in 2017.

The market growth of this segment is attributed to the increasing geriatric population and rising cases of orthopedic surgery. Moreover, there has been a strong focus on improving healthcare services globally, which further boosts the market's growth.

  • Spinal Implants:

A spinal implant is a type of medical device used in the management of spine disorders. Spinal implants consist of polyetheretherketone (PEEK) and titanium alloys. Cobalt chromium alloys are used in disc replacements type of spinal implants. As per the North American Spine Society, around 1.4 million spinal procedures were performed each year in the US. The largest number of procedures were performed in cervical repair, with over 350,000 total procedures.

  • Dental Implants:

Dental implants are a type of surgical component that edges with the jaw's bone to support dental prostheses like crowns, dentures, and facial prostheses. Moreover, the modern dental implant is a biological process also known as osseointegration, in which titanium material is used to form a close bond to the bone. Dental implants have two types such as root-form dental implants and plate-form dental implants.

  • Trauma:

Trauma is a critical injury to the bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, and soft tissue caused by accident and fall. As per the World Health Organization, prevalence of trauma orthopedic injury is around 63.6%.

  • Orthobiologics:

Orthobiologics are biological substances used to provide relief in musculoskeletal injuries.Orthobiologics are various types such as viscosupplementation, demineralized bone matrix, synthetic bone substitutes, bone morphogenetic proteins, and allograft.

  • Others:

This segment includes orthopedic biomaterials such as bio-resorbable tissue fixation, and osteosynthesis among others.

Orthopedic Biomaterial Material Class Insights

  • Metal

In load-bearing systems such as hip and knee prostheses and to fix internal and external bone fractures, metallic biomaterials haveprincipal applications. It is important to know the physical and chemical properties and interaction with the human body's host tissue of the various metallic materials used in orthopedic surgery.

  • Non-Metal

With the magnum PI's polyetheretherketone (PEEK) implant material systems, surgeons who choose not to use metal anchors may incorporate alternatives. The system can be seen in several shoulder-related surgical operations and Achilles tendon replacements, among many other indications. Together with cortical bone lock, knotless fixation, and a simple technique, an implant makes the procedure quick, effective, and secure. The implant is put in an easy-to-use implanted handle.

Orthopedic Biomaterial Application Insights

  • Joint Replacement

The joint replacement procedure eliminates and replaces damaged or diseased joint parts with new and artificial parts. The growth during the forecast period in the knee segment has been led by a rise in the number of knee replacement procedures, robotic-assisted replacement procedures, and the introduction of products such as the ATTUNE Revision Knee System, the Persona Partial Knee System, and JOURNEY II XR Total Knee by key manufacturers.

  • Fracture Fixation

The rising geriatric population, rapid adoption of new technologies, rising prevalence of osteoporosis, and increasing injuries are the main factors for the growth of the orthopedic fracture fixation segment. Changes in the lifestyle, such as lack of exercise, early burnout, and increased obesity amongst people are resulting in the weakening of bone fractures, which drive the growth of theorthopedicbiomaterials market.

  • Tissue Fixation

Sportspersons recovering from athletic injuries isa significant factor supporting the market growth of soft tissue fixation. The incidence of sports accidents, which is projected to fuel the market growth, will also increase with a growing number of children and teenagers taking part in sports activities.

  • Implant Surgery

Orthopedic implants are used to repair or sustain a broken or deformed bone or joint. These implants are designed to cure posture issues, regain natural skeletal functions, and remove deformities. An orthopedic implant is to replace older prosthetics. The demand for orthopedic implant products has increased due to a rise in the geriatric population, raising the risk of osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and other musculoskeletal disorders.

  • Viscosupplementation

Viscosupplementation is a minimally invasive technique in which an injection of hyaluronic acid (an active compound in synovial fluid) is commonly used. The bulk of the orthopedic operations are performed in the leg. There are 1 to 3 injection procedures with 3-injection treatments showing better pain relief than a 1-injection regimen.

Orthopedic Biomaterial End User Insights
