Medical Ceramics Market by Type (Aluminum Oxide, Zirconia, and Carbon, Hydroxyapatite, Glass & Bioglass, Zirconia Alumina, Bioresorbable Ceramics, and Piezo Ceramics), by Application (Surgical Instruments, Diagnostic Equipment, Orthopedic Implants, Electronic Implants, Dental Implants, Disposables, and Packaging) - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2014 - 2022

Medical ceramics are materials that are used for wide range of biomedical applications such as medical devices, implants, disposables, and packaging. The high demand for implants propel the growth of the medical ceramics in the healthcare industry.

Although, the market is highly competitive it is partly consolidated with market participants scattered across geographies. Stryker Corp., Zimmer Holdings, Inc., Kycera Corp., Nobel Biocare Services AG and H.C Starck GmbH are the major players in this market. The market dominance of these companies is characterized by their large product portfolio of medical ceramics, strong distribution network, and robust annual growth over the past three years. The world for medical ceramics reported a revenue of $3,850 million in 2015 and is expected to grow with an estimated CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period accounting for $5,841 million by 2022.

The world medical ceramics market based on application is categorized into devices, implants, disposables, and packaging. Further, the devices market is segmented into surgical instruments, diagnostic equipment, and others.

The implants segment is further divided into orthopedic, electronic, and dental implants. The implants segment reported the maximum share of two-thirds of the market as compared to other segments in 2015. In the same year, it accounted for revenue of $2,751 million and is estimated to grow at a steady pace during the forecast period. The devices is estimated reported to be the fastest growing segment as compared to other segments.

The regulatory landscape of the world medical ceramics market is highly complex. New technologies can gain approval and enter the market only after successful completion of clinical trials.

Most medical implants fall under the class III and class II category of medical devices; trials cannot be conducted for them without Investigational Device Exemption approvals from the FDA. The IDE approval from the FDA was thought to be the most common cause of delays in the device development process. However, nowadays, the process of securing an IDE approval from the FDA has been expedited.

In addition, the procedure is more transparent and the outcome is more predictable. As a result, it is easier for companies to begin trials for their innovative technologies with lesser hurdles. The companies that have received the IDE approval in 2016 include Caisson Interventional for Caisson Transcatheter Mitral Valve Replacement (TMVR) System, Terumo for Thoraflex Hybrid, and J&J for MemoryGel Ultra High Profile Breast Implants.
