Biomaterial innovations is a growth factor for spinal implant market

This research service summarizes the technology breakthroughs in spinal implants with respect to biomaterial technologies such as metals; polymers; ceramics; combination products and stem cells. There is also a focus on industry trends and novel biomaterial technology offerings that are enabling the advancement of new and improved spinal implants. There is intense competition within the biomaterial industry for spinal implants today and some of the emerging opportunities lie in the areas of minimally invasive surgery, surgical robotics, tissue engineering, surface modification technologies, nanotechnology and 3D printing.

Research Scope
Biomaterials are derived either naturally or synthetically which can be used to develop spinal implants. Research and development within this industry is focused to overcome biocompatibility issues by developing materials that could mimic human bone tissue. This is an area of extensive ongoing research and development. Several natural, bio-derived and synthetic biomaterial are being investigated and suitable technologies developed to advance spinal implants. The emergence of tissue engineering and biotechnology has expanded the role of biomaterials for tissue replacement, bone regeneration and surface coating applications. Younger market segments within this industry such as stem cells and combination products have tremendous growth potential while certain biomaterial technologies such as metals and alloys, that previously experienced rapid market growth have now entered maturity. But even still these markets is sustained by continued product evolution and incremental innovations within biomaterial technologies.

Key Findings
Incremental innovations are commonly seen within the biomaterial market for spinal implants. Strict regulatory approvals does not permit the introduction of new biomaterials within the industry and hence researchers and developers prefer to combine existing biomaterials or incorporate biologics into commercially existing spinal implants.

There is an emergence of tissue enginerring and stem cell research as solutions for developing advanced spinal implants. Gene therapy and engineered stem cells in conjunction with biomaterials are expected to have huge impact for treating tissue and bone loss.

Surface coating or modification is a big industry within the spinal implants facilitating osseointegration, minimizing friction between implantable components, and bolstering fatigue resistance. Porous titanium, cobalt-chromium, bioactive ceramics are highly used as coatings for spinal implants. The spinal implants manufacturers are also looking into biologics coating.

Advances in nanotechnology, additive manufacturing technologies and 3D printing are opening new frontiers particularly in the development of next generation spinal implant biomaterials and regenerative medicine strategies. This will enable the use of value-added design spinal implant device manufacturing sector.
Despite the spinal implants market being a mature market, increasing patient needs, end user demands and stringent regulatory approvals are pushing for continuous research and development of biomaterials for better biocompatibility and enhanced healing and clinical outcome.

Future developments reside in the synthesis of bio-inspired materials through processing methods and strategies that are characteristic of biological systems. These involve nanoscale self-assembly of the components and the development of hierarchical structures
