Bio-inert ceramics: The largest type of bioceramics and piezoceramics
Bio-inert ceramics are high strength ceramics that are used in load-bearing body implants. These ceramics do not interact with the body environment apart from causing an initial fibrous tissue reaction, which coats the ceramic. These bio-inert ceramics can be used in similar situations to metallic implants as they exhibit impressive hardness & war characteristics, low friction, and produce no adverse immune response. Most widely used materials in bio-inert ceramics are aluminum oxide (Al2O3) and zirconia oxide (ZrO2). These are used in the construction of orthopedic and dental implants. With the growing need for implantable medical devices and increasing orthopedic and dental implant surgeries, the demand for these ceramics is expected to drive the bioceramics and piezoceramics market in the near future.
Dental implants: The largest application for bioceramics and piezoceramics
Dental implant is the replacement of tooth or bridge by an artificial tooth root that is placed in the jaw. Dental implants are the largest application of bioceramics and piezoceramics worldwide. Alumina, titanium, and zirconia are the major materials used for this application. As ceramics are characterized with high mechanical strength, excellent biocompatibility, tribological properties, and dimensional stability, these are ideal materials preferred for dental implants. The use of bioceramics and piezoceramics is growing significantly with the development of more advanced and specialized ceramics as they are much more compatible and versatile than previous bio-metals. Bio-inert ceramics and bio-active ceramics are the most appropriate and adaptable bioceramics and piezoceramics used in this application. Additionally, the bioceramics and piezoceramics market is expected to grow further with the shift in medical tourism from the U.S. and the U.K. to Malaysia, China, and India.
Asia-Pacific: The largest market for bioceramics and piezoceramics
Asia-Pacific is the global forerunner of bioceramics and piezoceramics market, in terms of value and volume, and is expected to continue till 2020. The countries in this region such as China, India, Japan, South Korea, and Indonesia are witnessing a significant increase in the use of bioceramics and piezoceramics in dental implants, orthopedic implants, surgical & diagnostic instruments, and other applications. The rapidly growing demand in end-use applications, competitive manufacturing costs, and high economic growth rate are the driving forces for the bioceramics and piezoceramics market growth in this region.
The bioceramics and piezoceramics market has few global players competing significantly for the market share, who are actively investing in various strategies such as new product developments, major acquisitions, joint ventures & collaborations, and expansions globally to increase their market share.
