This market research report identifies players like DePuy Synthes, Kyocera, Medtronic, Stryker, and Zimmer Biomet to be the key vendors in the global bioactive materials market. This research report also presents a detailed segmentation of the market by type (bioactive glass, glass-ceramics, and ceramics, bioactive composites, and bioactive coatings), end-user (medical, dentistry, cosmetics, and other sectors), and geography (APAC, Europe, North America, and ROW).

Overview of the global bioactive materials market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global bioactive materials market to grow at a CAGR of more than 13% between 2016 and 2020.  Bioactive materials are highly preferred among several end-user industries, for their unique biomechanical and biochemical properties. The healthcare industry dominates the bioactive materials market due to increased demand from organ failure and replacement procedures, orthodontics, and other coating applications. There is high demand for the use of bioactive materials in implantations as these bioengineered materials are resistant to high moisture content, fracture and wear, and bacterial microleakage. Also, the implantation procedures including bioengineered materials reduce the annual post-implant hospital costs. Several technological innovations and the economic benefits with the use of bioactive materials and bioengineered transplants have led to growing interest in bioengineering and tissue engineering, which act as alternatives to conventional organ transplants.

 The bioactive materials market is estimated to grow significantly in North America during the forecast period. Factors such as growing requirement for materials that permit easy tissue repair and regeneration to shorten hospital stays are key to market growth. The US is the major revenue generating country in the North American bioactive materials market owing to rising healthcare expenditure in the country. The rising number of minimally invasive surgical procedures and the presence of leading market vendors like Zimmer Biomet and Medtronic in the US will drive the global bioactive materials market over the next four years.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

Factors such as R&D capabilities, economies of scale, and proprietorship over technology play important roles in defining the competitive structure of the global bioactive materials market. The merger of two leading players, Biomet and Zimmer, will have far-reaching consequences on the structure of the market. Competition in the market is moderate as there is a high level of product differentiation. Also, vendors have unique targeted segments, which avoids fierce competition in the market.

Leading vendors in the market are -

  • DePuy Synthes
  • Kyocera
  • Medtronic
  • Stryker
  • Zimmer Biomet

Segmentation by type and analysis of the bioactive materials market

  • Bioactive glass, glass-ceramics, and ceramics
  • Bioactive composites
  • Bioactive coatings

The bioactive glass, glass-ceramics, and ceramics segment dominated the market and occupied the largest share in the market during 2015. Bioactive glass, glass-ceramics, and ceramics are primarily composed of silicon dioxide, sodium oxide, calcium oxide, and phosphorus pentoxide. Their combination with polymeric bio-substitutes enables their extensive usage in a wide range of biomedical and healthcare applications.  The brittle property of bioactive glass integrated with a biocompatible polymer matrix makes it most suitable for use in orthodontic and medical applications. Continuous advancements in tissue engineering and endodontics provide significant potential for the growth of the market in the next four years.

End-user segmentation and analysis of the bioactive materials market

  • Medical
  • Dentistry
  • Cosmetics

The medical sector is the largest end-user segment in the bioactive material market and will continue its dominance during the forecast period.  The increase in the number of organ transplants and hip and knee prosthesis implantations will drive the market for bioactive materials in the medical sector. Bioactive materials are also used in the manufacture of devices such as valves, stents, catheters, synthetic blood vessels, and artificial heart, with the incorporation of gene therapy techniques. The growing applications of bioactive materials in the plastic surgery procedures will further augment the growth prospects for this segment in the coming years.
