Ceramics are products manufactured by firing non-metallic materials at high temperatures. Some of the materials used in producing ceramics include alumina, zirconia (TZP), single crystal piezoelectric, silicon nitride (Si3N4), macor, dielectrics, braze alloys, zirconia toughened alumina and silicon carbide (SiC). Some of the major medical applications of these ceramics include implantable medical devices, diagnostic imaging equipment, consumable medical devices and other therapeutic medical devices.
Growing number of medical procedures involving dental implants, cardiovascular implants, orthopedic implants and medical imaging equipment is one of the major driver of this market. This growing number of medical procedures is a consequence of factors such as the rising demand for minimally invasive medical procedures, the introduction of innovative products increasing the efficacy of therapeutic and diagnostic medical procedures and constantly improving healthcare infrastructure across the globe. Some of the other drivers of the global medical ceramics market include the rising incidence rates of cardiovascular, orthopedic and dental diseases and the growing global base of elderly population.
North America currently holds the majority of the market share and is expected to maintain its position throughout the forecast period. High usage rates of implantable medical devices and diagnostic imaging equipment coupled with the presence of a relatively larger number of medical device manufacturers in this region are some of the factors accounting for its large market share. However, the Asia-Pacific medical ceramics market is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period owing to drivers such as the rising demand for medical device outsourcing in emerging economies such as India and China, the presence of high unmet medical needs and constantly improving healthcare infrastructure in this region. Furthermore, the fact that Asian countries such as China produce cost effective medical devices catering to patients with lower disposable incomes, will serve the Asia-Pacific medical ceramics market as a driver.
