The global medical ceramics market is projected to reach USD 12.9 billion by 2025 from USD 9.6 billion in 2020, growing at a CAGR of 5.9% from 2020 to 2025. Factors such as increasing research activities for the development of novel medical ceramics, growing demand for medical ceramics in plastic surgeries & wound healing applications; the rising number of hip & knee replacement procedures; and the increasing demand for implantable devices drive the growth of the medical ceramics market. The growing healthcare industry in emerging economies and increasing research activities in medical ceramics for nanotechnology and electronic device applications are likely to offer lucrative growth opportunities for players in the medical ceramics market. However, factors such as stringent clinical & regulatory processes and unfavorable healthcare reforms in the US are expected to restrain this market’s growth. Moreover, issues related to reparability & recycling processes and the shortage of skilled surgeons & dental professionals are major challenges adversely impacting this market’s growth. The growth of the market is also expected to slow temporarily during the forecast period due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Zirconia: The largest segment of bioinert market
Based on type, the global bioinert ceramics market is segmented into zirconia, alumina, and other bioinert ceramics (titanium, pyrolytic carbon, and silicon nitride).In 2019, the zirconia segment accounted for the largest share of the global bioinert ceramics market.

This segment is also expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the advantages of zirconia over other ceramic materials, the rising demand for aesthetically attractive dental restorations, the launch of new & advanced products, and growing research activities to develop novel products.

Hydroxyapatite: The largest segment of bioactive market
Based on type, the global bioactive ceramics market is segmented into hydroxyapatite and glass ceramics.In 2019, the hydroxyapatite segment accounted for the largest share of the global bioactive ceramics market.

This segment is also expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period.Hydroxyapatite has high biocompatibility, bioactivity, and osteoconductivity; making it suitable for a wide range of applications, such as a bone void filler for the orthopedic, spine, maxillofacial, and dental surgery; restoration of periodontal defects; orthopedic and dental implant coating; bone-tissue engineering; and gene delivery.

Due to its bioactivity, hydroxyapatite is an alternative to allogenic & xenogeneic bone grafts, resulting in shorter healing times. Additionally, it is used as an injectable cement or coating on titanium & titanium alloy implants to reduce the implant rejection rate.

Dental Applications: The dominating application segment of medical ceramics market
Based on application, the global medical ceramics market is broadly segmented into dental applications, orthopedic applications, cardiovascular applications, surgical instruments, diagnostic instruments, plastic surgery, and other applications (cancer, dialysis, drug delivery systems, and gene therapy).The dental applications segment accounted for the largest share of the medical ceramics market in 2019.

This segment’s large share can be attributed to the increasing number of cosmetic dental procedures and dental implant procedures across various regions and rising periodontal disorders.

North America: The largest share contributing reginal segment of the global medical ceramics market in 2019
The medical ceramics market is segmented into five major regions, namely, North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa.North America accounted for a major share of the medical ceramics market in 2019.

In the US, the medical ceramics market is driven by the growing demand for plastic surgeries, increasing cancer incidence, growing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases, and the growing number of conferences & symposiums. In Canada, market growth is driven by increasing R&D activities for medical ceramics and growth in the geriatric population.
