Ceramic Materials are the combination of thermal and physical qualities which are used for various medical applications for the repair and reconstruction of human body parts. This employed majorly in dental and orthopedic applications, mainly as implants or replacements. The inherent brittleness of traditional ceramics has limited their ability to compete with ductile metals and polymers for technical applications. However, over the last 100 years innovative techniques in the fabrication of ceramics have led to their use as high-tech materials. Inert bioceramic, such as ZrO2 and Al2O3, have inherently low levels of reactivity compared with other materials such as polymers and metals as well as surface reactive or resorbable ceramics and they are expected to be non-toxic, non-allergenic, and non-carcinogenic for a life-time in a human bod. This led to the early adoption of the most recent generation of instruments using an established technology in the hospitals.
The global incidence of osteoarthritis is expected to escalate which in turn increasing demand for medical ceramics implants as Osteoporosis is characterized by low bone mineral density (BMD) and deterioration of bone tissues, leading to increased risk of developing traumatic bone fractures. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 2013, around 28.2% of the global population above 60 years of age, suffered from osteoarthritis with an estimated 80% recorded with mobility handicaps. Moreover, Growth in applications of medical ceramics for inartificial total hip, knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist bone plates, screws, wires intramedullary nails, spinal fusion alveolar bone replacements, mandibular reconstruction and tooth replacement implants has opened new growth avenues for medical ceramics market. 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 and can have devastating effects on organs and tissues, this could hamper the growth of the market during the forecast future.
