Medical ceramics, or bio-ceramics, refer to biocompatible materials used for various contact and non-contact medical applications. Some of the commonly used medical ceramics include bio-inert ceramics, which are manufactured using alumina and zirconia, bioactive ceramics manufactured using Hydroxyapatite and glass, and bioresorbable and piezoelectric ceramics. They are processed through hot isostatic pressure (HIP) and injection molding techniques and exhibit high mechanical strength, inherent stability and advantageous electrical properties. They are commonly used for dental and bone implants, prosthetic dentures, diagnostic and therapeutic medical devices, such as heart valves and pacemaker electrodes and consumables.
The increasing prevalence of dental and medical ailments across the globe represents one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, the rising geriatric population, which is more susceptible to such medical concerns and require a greater number of surgical procedures, are providing a thrust to the market growth. This has also resulted in the increasing preference for alumina-based medical ceramics, which are extensively used to manufacture shoulder, knee and hip implants for orthopedic procedures. In line with this, the widespread adoption of plastic surgeries and advanced wound healing technologies are favoring the market growth. Additionally, various technological advancements, such as the development of innovative and novel medical ceramics, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. Product manufacturers are developing minimally invasive (MI) implants for dental, orthopedic and cardiovascular applications that cause negligible discomfort and increase the efficacy of the medical procedures. Other factors, including rising expenditure capacities of the individuals, along with significant improvements in the healthcare infrastructure, are anticipated to drive the market further.
