The global medical ceramics market has become a major part of the global healthcare sector in recent years due to the rising awareness about the various applications of medical ceramics. This has driven robust growth in the medical ceramics market, with new players joining the market and established players looking to scale up their operations through capacity expansions and collaboration efforts. A detailed review of the competitive landscape of the global medical ceramics market is provided in the report, including profiles of the major players operating in the market. The Global Medical Ceramics Market is expected to exhibit a strong 6.5% CAGR over the forecast period from 2017 to 2023, according to the latest research report from Market Research Future (MRFR).
Medical ceramics are used for structural or supportive purposes in dentistry, orthopedics, cardiovascular disease management and surgeries, and other applications. The strong materials used in medical ceramics are perfect for usage in dental applications, as they are used to produce highly valuable, long-lasting dental caps and crowns, among others. The growing demand for dental crowns, driven by the growing prevalence of plaque and other dental conditions, is likely to be a major driver for the global medical ceramics market over the forecast period. The growing dental healthcare industry in Asia Pacific and other emerging economies is likely to be a key driver for the global medical ceramics market.
Medical ceramics are also widely used in orthopedic applications as a replacement for bone matter. The growing demand for effective bone substitutes in the healthcare sector is likely to be a major driver for the medical ceramics market over the forecast period. Rapid growth in materials research and development is likely to be a key driver for the medical ceramics market, as new materials and production technologies are likely to be developed in the coming years, helping the medical ceramics market achieve smoother operations and higher profit margins. The use of medical ceramics in diagnostic and surgical instruments is also likely to be a key driver for the global medical ceramics market over the forecast period.
Leading players in the global medical ceramics market include DePuy Synthes, Morgan Advanced Materials, Nobel Biocare Services AG, 3M ESPE, H. C. Starck GmbH, Kyocera Corporation, Stryker, Straumann, Zimmer Holdings Inc., and CoorsTek Inc.
In October 2019, Lithoz announced that it would display its latest CeraFab family of mahcines designed for high-volume production of high-performance AM ceramics at November’s Formnext.
