The medical composites market size is estimated to grow from USD 663.3 Million in 2016 to USD 934.7 Million by 2021, at a CAGR of 7.10% between 2016 and 2021. The base year considered for the study is 2015 and the market size is projected for the period between 2016 and 2021. Increase in use of composites in diagnostic imaging and composite body implants applications are driving the market.

Objectives of the Study:

The report analyzes the global medical composites market, in terms of volume (ton) and value (USD million). The report also estimates the market size and growth potential of the medical composites across different segments such as fiber type, application, and region. It forecasts the market size in terms of regions, namely, Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, the Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. The study also covers market opportunities and competitive landscape for stakeholders and market leaders.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the medical composites market begins with gathering data of key companies’ revenues and raw material costs through secondary sources such as Factiva, Hoovers, Manta, and others. The product offerings are also taken into consideration to determine the market segmentation. The bottom-up approach has been used to arrive at the overall market size of medical composites from the revenue of the key players. After arriving at the total market size, the overall market has been split into several segments and sub-segments, which have then been verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives.

The global medical composites market is projected to grow from USD 663.3 Million in 2016 to USD 934.7 Million by 2021, at a CAGR of 7.10% during the forecast period. The medical composites market is growing because of high demand for diagnostic imaging application as they are radiolucent and do not hinder the diagnosis process. Medical composites manufactured using carbon fiber has advantages such as lightweight, biocompatible, and resistance to corrosion. It also helps in avoiding revision operations. These properties are driving the use of medical composites in applications such as composite body implants, surgical instruments, dental, and diagnostic imaging.

Composite body implants and diagnostic imaging are the major applications of medical composites. Composite body implants is more flexible and can share the load with surrounding bone so there is less bone loss. One of the fastest-growing uses of advanced composites in medical composites is in patient imaging tables and accessories used in X-ray, MRI, PET, and CT imaging systems. They are used in these application as they have as radiolucency and absorb low levels of radiant energy. This characteristic help minimize signal interference to enable capture of clear images for use in medical diagnostics. This is driving the use of medical composites in diagnostic imaging.

Currently, Europe is the largest consumer of medical composites. The medical composites market in Europe is mainly driven by the growing demand from diagnostic imaging, surgical, and composite body implants applications.

Medical Composites Market

High cost of carbon fiber and stringent regulatory laws restrain the growth of the medical composites market.

Royal TenCate N.V. (Netherlands), 3M (U.S.), Quantro Composites (U.S.), and Royal DSM (Netherlands) are some of the leading players in the medical composites market. Royal DSM has a diverse portfolio of medical composites product, which helps the company to expand globally and cater to the increasing demand of medical composites in different applications areas. Major companies adopted expansions & investments for maintaining its position in the global medical composites market.
