According to Eswara Prasad, Team Lead Chemical Research at Allied Market Research, "Medical ceramics are widely preferred in dentistry due to their large compressive and load bearing capacity and similarity with dental materials such as enamel."
The upsurge in the demand for medical ceramics from medical device industry creates attractive opportunities for market growth. Properties of medical ceramics such as high compressive strength and biodegradability, which are necessary for bone implants are leading market growth. Medical ceramics minimize bone ingrowth, which is a key factor boosting its adoption in the market. Growth in applications of medical ceramics for inartificial total hip, knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist; bone plates, screws, wires; intramedullary nails; permanently implanted artificial limbs; spinal fusion; alveolar bone replacements, mandibular reconstruction; and tooth replacement implants has opened new growth avenues for medical ceramics market. Growth in ceramic implants market has also fueled the demand for medical ceramics as it can be framed to match the material properties of a natural bone.
The application of the medical ceramics in the implants segments holds highest share in 2015 and is expected to maintain its lead throughout the forecast period. The increase in use of ceramics as rigid materials to manufacture implants is due to absence of prosthetics, thus reducing the risk of bacterial growth. Zirconia and alumina are the most commonly used ceramic materials used to develop implants. Zirconia, a type of bio-inert ceramic is expected to be the fastest growing segment in the global medical ceramics market followed by piezo ceramics. Ceramics are preferred for orthopedic implants by manufacturers due to their high resistance and biochemical inertness. Alumina is the most commonly used ceramic utilized for manufacturing orthopedic implants.
