Report Overview

The global medical coatings for implants market size was valued at USD 1,387.24 million in 2022 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.3% from 2023 to 2030. The growing demand is fueled by rising cases of various medical implants such as orthopedic implants, cardiovascular implants, dental implants, and others. Rising utilization of implants for cases such as bone fracture, bone dislocate, and others, mostly by the growing aging population is likely to augment the demand for medical coatings for implants over the projected years.

Growing healthcare expenditure is another reason augmenting the growth of the market. According to the U.S. Centers of Medicare & Medicaid Services, the healthcare spending accounted for approximately 19.7% of the country’s gross domestic product in 2020. According to the same source, the U.S. healthcare spending is projected to grow at an average rate of 5.4% from 2019 to 2028 and reach USD 6.2 trillion by 2028. This high growth is expected to be driven by growing need for healthcare services for the aging population (65 years and above), high prevalence of chronic disorders & diseases, and technological advancements. This, in turn, is anticipated to drive the demand for medical implants, boosting the demand for medical coatings.

Increasing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases is driving the demand for cardiovascular implants globally. Cardiac implants are considered to be a great asset for heart patients as they help to monitor patient’s heartbeat and detect irregularities in the cardiac rhythms. Implantable Cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) is one such cardiac implant that supports cardiac patients with programs, such as high-energy shock and low-energy pacing. Thus, increasing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases, coupled with advancements in surgical techniques, and rising awareness of preventive care are expected to create significant demand for cardiovascular implants, which, in turn, is further projected to fuel the demand for medical coatings.

The prices of the titanium are affected by the high cost of the aforementioned extraction process and the presence of several stringent government regulations pertaining to the metals and mining sector.  This further impacts the overall cost of titanium alloy. This, in turn, is anticipated to emerge as a major restraining factor for the medical coatings for implants market in the coming years. Moreover, several import tariffs imposed by the U.S. government owing to the ongoing trade war between the U.S and China are expected to further bring volatility in raw material prices in the coming years. All these factors are expected to restrain the growth of the medical coatings for implants market over the forecast period.

Rising inclination towards consuming junk food and improper eating habits are causing tooth decay, creating demand for solutions such as dental implants. In addition, increase in geriatric population along with the burden of dental diseases, and increasing demand for cosmetic dentistry are further propelling the demand for dental implants. This, in turn, is further projected to positively influence the growth of medical coatings in the coming years.

Product Insights

Hydroxyapatite (HA) product segment dominated the market with the revenue share of 64.9% in 2022. Hydroxyapatite are extensively consumed in implants such as dental and orthopedics for bone adjustments. These coatings present prominent application in integration of medical implants within the human body. Though metallic implants offer the required mechanical strength, they need a good osteophilic surface for bonding to the skeleton. This is provided by hydroxyapatite coatings, which help natural bones affix to implants. These coatings are normally used for low load-bearing dental and orthopedic implants owing to their low fatigue strength.

Biofilm formation, infection risks, and microbial colonization are the major complications encountered by medical implants. These are also some of the predominant factors, which lead to implant failures. These factors led manufacturers of medical implant coatings to develop antimicrobial nanoparticles for use in implant coatings. The nanoparticle composites such as silver nanoparticles are incorporated with hydroxyapatite into implants to inhibit bacterial growth in them. This assures that implants have enhanced integration possibility with the body of patients.

Technology Insights

Plasma spray technology segment dominated the market with the revenue share of 55.3% in 2022. Plasma spraying produces thick layered coatings, from a few tens to a few hundred microns on ceramic or metal implants. It is usually used to spray titanium (Ti) coatings, spray Hydroxyapatite (HA) coatings, and Ti/HA dual coatings on implants used in orthopedic, trauma, dental, and applications. Plasma-sprayed coatings are applied on the bone-contacting surface for biological fixation of implants, surface roughness, and maintaining similarity of chemical composition to bone minerals.

Vacuum spray technology offers prominent application for implants. During fracture healing, when an implant is inserted, the bone, in order to grow, has to offer the trabaculae an excellent surface to adhere to it. Trabeculae are small rods inserted inside the bone to provide support during bone healing. This requires the implant to provide a porous surface while still being able to withstand enormous loads. Vacuum plasma spray coating provides these implants with a suitable adhesive property and smooth surface to bond well with the substrate and is used in bone-in growth applications.

Application Insights

Orthopedic implants screws application segment dominated the market with the revenue share of 53.1% in 2022. Orthopedic implant screws are essential in the process of orthopedic fixation. Pedicle screws are a type of orthopedic screws, which are primarily used in spine fusion surgeries to correct deformities and treat trauma. They are inserted to hold the vertebrae together and keep the spine stable. Pedicle screws are made of titanium alloy and are often associated with risks involving breaking, loosening, and/or falling of screws. To remedy that, these implants are sprayed with titanium plasma- sprayed (TPS) coatings, which provide good corrosion resistance, adhesion, wear strength, and reduce allergic reactions. The improper weight lifting techniques in material handling and also while working out in gyms often lead to spine disorders which is expected to drive the market for pedicle screws and influence the consumption of medical coatings in the implants.

 Global medical coatings for implants market share, by application, 2022 (%)

Demand for dental implant has been surging owing to the rising prominence of the American promotion company, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), which has increased the popularity of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). MMA has become one of the fastest growing sports and is anticipated to grow due increased investments pouring into it. For instance, in December 2021, One Championship, the Asian mixed martial arts (MMA) company, closed the USD 150 million equity financing round led by Qatar Investment Authority and Guggenheim Investments. Since injuries are associated with MMA sport, the growing MMA market is expected to drive the market for dental implants and positively impact the medical coatings for implants market over the forecast period.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market with the highest revenue share of 40.5% in 2022. Cosmetic surgeries are gaining popularity due to growing urbanizations, changing lifestyle and rising consumer trend towards exhibiting their appearance on social media platforms in North America. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the popularity of cosmetics surgery among men is increasing due to introduction of non-surgical procedures such as soft tissue fillers which provide quicker recovery time. Hydroxyapatite is used as a soft tissue filler for facial wrinkles. It lasts for a relatively long period. Since the social stigma associated with men undergoing cosmetic surgeries have been steadily fading away, it is expected to result in high demand for soft tissue fillers, which will directly propel the market for medical coatings in similar applications in North America.

Medical Coatings for Implants Market Trends, by Region, 2023 - 2030

Asia Pacific is expected to witness significant gains over the forecast period on account of the rising demand for medical implants in various countries including India, China, and Japan.  Increasing number of body implant surgeries is anticipated to upsurge the demand for medical coatings further in the region.
