The Brazil market for biomaterials is expected to reach $1.7 billion in 2015 from $550.2 million in 2008 with a CAGR of 19.5% from 2010 to 2015. In 2009, the orthopedic biomaterial market recorded revenues of $236.5 million or 37.5% of the total biomaterial products market. This is mainly because of increasing application areas and introduction of sophisticated technologies in the biomaterials market. However, the orthopedic biomaterial market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 17.2% from 2010 to 2015. Cardiovascular biomaterial products market is the second-highest market, contributing 36% of the total biomaterial products market.

Aging population (population above 60 years is expected to reach 24 million by 2012), higher life expectancy, and increase in the incidences of ‘lifestyle and chronic diseases’ such as cardiovascular diseases has influenced the growth of biomaterial products. According to the World Health Organization, 32% of the total mortality in Brazil is due to cardiovascular diseases. Such a high incidence of diseases will increase the demand for cardiovascular biomaterial products such as cardiac stents.

The biomaterial products market in Brazil is expected to grow from $690 million in 2010 to $1.7 billion in 2015 at an estimated CAGR of 19.5%. The wound care biomaterial segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 24.3% from 2010 to 2015. Of all the application areas of biomaterial in Brazil, surgical appliances and supplies account for the largest share; i.e. 39% of the total applications of biomaterial. With the technological advancements in orthopedic and prosthetic applications, there is an increase in demand for biomaterials in surgical appliances and supplies.

9 FACTORS AFFECTING THE GROWTH OF BRAZIL BIOMATERIALS MARKET

    Biomaterials are widely used in medical devices, tissue replacements, and surface coating applications. These materials are used in the human body to improve body functions and/or to replace damaged tissues. However, earlier there was no study done on biocompatibility and consequently there was no formalized approval process. Therefore, biomaterials were used only in external prosthetics and dental devices. With the emergence of biotechnology, the biomaterial market has expanded and is now playing a more significant important role in the medical sector. They have emerged from bio-inert materials (materials that do not react with the biological environment) to biodegradable materials. In 2008, the biomaterial market was worth $623.1 million; the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 19.5% from 2010 to 2015. This indicates a great opportunity in the market in terms of revenues and market growth.

    The biomaterial products market in Brazil is expected to grow from $690 million in 2010 to $1.7 billion in 2015 at an estimated CAGR of 19.5%. The wound care biomaterial segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 24.3% from 2010 to 2015. Of all the application areas of biomaterial in Brazil, surgical appliances and supplies account for the largest share; i.e. 39% of the total applications of biomaterial. With the technological advancements in orthopedic and prosthetic applications there is an increase in demand for biomaterials in surgical appliances and supplies.

    The biomaterials market includes number of materials with synthetic polymers and alloys. The improvement in natural polymers and metals has helped the growth of biomaterials. The biomaterial market is further segmented as ceramics, metals, polymers, bone, and others. Others include composites and hybrid biomaterials. These biomaterials are manufactured by combining two different biomaterials such as metal and polymers or metal and metal. Composites are mainly prepared to incorporate the properties of two different ingredients/biomaterials in one product.

    Brazil has, off late, emerged as an attractive destination for medical tourism because of its quality services, excellent medical facilities, and treatment at affordable prices (about 50% less than that of U.S.).

    The private healthcare delivery market in Brazil will see new entrants and some consolidation. This is likely to increase the number of hospitals and the care units. For example, the International Financial Corporation (IFC) has partially financed the private hospital chain 'Hospital e Maternidade Anαlia Franco’ of the Sao Luiz Group. The IFC extended a loan of $17 million with a 13-year final maturity and additional long-term fund of the same amount to furnish and equip the hospital. Such developments are likely to increase the number of hospitals or care units in the country.
