Biomaterials refer to natural or synthetic materials that interact with biological systems to repair or treat natural body tissues. Biomaterials are majorly used in joint replacements, drug delivery devices, heart valves and in other medical implants. Increasing government and private funding or grants pertaining to research and development in the field of biomaterials and awareness and training workshops organized by organizations such as the NSF (National Science Foundation) biomaterials workshop, are some of the most impact rendering drivers of this market. Moreover, growing base of geriatric population across the world and the consequent rise in prevalence rates of cardiovascular and orthopedic disorders serve this market as drivers.
The future growth of this market will be fuelled by the introduction of new products in application areas such as plastic surgery, neurology and wound healing and the presence of high growth opportunities in emerging Asian economies such as India, China and Taiwan. In addition, new technologies such as hydrogen scaffolding and decellularized dermal matrixes for grafting will assist the market in growing at a healthy rate throughout the forecast period.
The cardiovascular application segment dominates the global biomaterials market in terms of share. High prevalence rates of cardiovascular diseases coupled with the presence of high unmet medical needs in this segment attributes to its high market share. Moreover, high presence of untapped opportunities in emerging Asian economies will help this market maintain its position throughout the forecast period.
The orthopedic application segment is the second largest market. The introduction of technological advancements in the fields of gene therapy and stem cell research to develop novel therapeutic solutions for chronic musculoskeletal conditions is one of the most important drivers for this market.
North America holds the largest share of the overall biomaterials market. The presence of sophisticated healthcare infrastructure and amicable reimbursement policies in this region are the most important growth factors for this market. However, rapidly rising patient awareness levels coupled with rising healthcare expenditure in emerging countries such as India and China will help the Asia-Pacific biomaterials market grow at the fastest rate from 2013 to 2019.
