Biomaterial is referred to any substance which is engineered to become biocompatible for its interaction with the biological systems. Biomaterials can be categorized as synthetic and natural. The synthetic materials consist of metals, polymers and ceramics, whereas natural biomaterials derived from natural sources include animal tissues or are engineered in the laboratory. Some tissues are harvested from animal sources such as cows or pigs. The interaction of these biomaterials with the human body aids in the treatment, augmentation, repairing or replacement of a tissue in the body.
The biomaterials market is majorly segmented by type, application and geography. The major categories by type include metal based, polymer based, ceramic based, regenerative biomaterials, inorganic glass, radiopaque biomaterials, natural biomaterials and hybrid combinations biomaterials. The major applications include cardiovascular, orthopedic, ophthalmology, dental, wound healing, plastic surgery, neurological/central nervous system (CNS), tissue engineering and others such as drug delivery, urinary applications among others. By geography, the global biomaterials is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle-East & Africa and Latin America. The global biomaterials market is expected to reach $151.65 billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 16.0% between 2017 and 2021.
The biomaterials market is driven by a number of factors such as superior properties of biomaterials, increasing funds as well as aids by government for research purposes, rise in wound healing therapies & plastic surgeries, growing geriatric population, rising prevalence of cardiovascular diseases, increasing awareness of regenerative medicine, high rate of orthopedic disorders, and growing demand for implantable devices. However, biocompatabilty issues, stringent safety regulations, and limitations of biomaterial based products are hampering the growth of the biomaterials market. Increasing obesity, introduction of biomaterials in cancer research, and rising patient awareness and improved lifestyle in growing economies such as India, China, and Brazil are expected to create opportunities in the biomaterials market.

The biomaterials market is segmented into various types, namely: metal based (such as stainless steel, cobalt-chrome alloys, titanium and titanium alloys, gold, silver, magnesium, and nitinol), polymer based (such as polypropylene, polyethylene terephthalate, polyetheretherketone, polytetrafluoroethylene, polyglycolide, silicone rubber, and PMMA, among others), ceramic based (such as calcium phosphate, zirconia, calcium sulphate, and carbon, among others), regenerative biomaterials, inorganic glass, radiopaque biomaterials, natural biomaterials (such as hyaluronic acid, collagen, gelatin, fibrin, cellulose, chitin, and silk, among others), and hybrid combinations biomaterials. Metal based biomaterials dominated the global biomaterials market with a share of approximately 24% in 2016. The market size of this segment is projected to reach $34.62 billion by 2021. Exceptionally high strength, biocompatibility and biodegradable properties allow these metals to be viably used for biomaterial applications.
The metallic biomaterials and their alloys are used majorly in load-bearing applications for which the desired properties are high strength, stiffness, corrosion resistance, fatigue strength, easy sterilization, shape memory and biocompatabilty, among others. For similar reasons, metals are the most widely used biomaterials for load-bearing implants and orthopedic surgeries involving metallic implants. Metals are used in all the applications of biomaterials such as cardiovascular, orthopedic, ophthalmology, and dental, among others. From simple wires, rods, pins, screws to fracture fixation plates and total joint prostheses (artificial joints) for hips, knees, shoulders, and ankles, among others, metals are used in all kinds of applications including maxillofacial surgery, cardiovascular surgery, dental materials etc.
On the basis of application, biomaterials market is segmented into cardiovascular, orthopedics, ophthalmology, wound healing, plastic surgery, tissue engineering, neurological/central nervous system, and others. The cardiovascular application segment dominated the biomaterials market with a market share of approximately 34% in 2016. The increasing use of biomaterials in cardiovascular applications is majorly subjected to its biocompatibility as biomaterials comes in contact blood, vascular endothelial cells, fibroblasts, and myocardium, as well as a number of other cells and a cellular matrix material.
Additionally, according to World Health Organization (WHO), in 2015, approximately 17.7 million population died from cardiovascular diseases, thereby, representing 31% of all the global deaths. The main risk factors of the cardiovascular diseases include tobacco use, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, unhealthy diet and obesity, physical inactivity, alcohol consumption, hypertension, and stroke, among others. Out of 17.7 million deaths, approximately 7.4 million people died due to coronary heart disease and 6.7 million from stroke.
On the basis of geography, North America dominated the biomaterials market. The increasing demand for surgeries such as cosmetic, and orthopedic (joint replacement) among others, in the healthcare industry is giving a much needed thrust to the biomaterials market in the North American region. Another major reason behind the growth of the biomaterials market in the North American region is that the countries such as the U.S., Canada, and Mexico have a strong support of the government in terms of grants, funds and subsidies in R&D activities. Some of the major players operating in the North American region include Royal DSM, Invibio Ltd., Carpenter Technology Corporation, CAM Bio ceramics BV, Collagen Solutions PLC, Berkeley Advanced Biomaterials, Corbion N.V., Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc., and Evonik Industries AG.
