A biomaterial is any substance or combination of synthetic or natural origin. Biomaterials are vital in orthopedic surgeries, most notably in knee replacements. According to the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, knee replacement demand will rise enormously in the coming years. A similar source proposes the need for entire hip replacements to register 572,000 patients by 2030. With such an incredible increase in demand in the orthopedic sector, the biomaterials market will soon be subject to significant growth. Nanotechnology contributions researchers are working on recovering energy from the human body to use power to operate implantable biomedical devices.


Y-O-Y rise in chronic skeletal and musculoskeletal medical conditions is fueling the demand for biomaterial implants, which is expected to boost the global biomaterials market growth.

Growing demand for orthopedic implants, the geriatric population, rising incidences of osteoporosis, and other musculoskeletal disorders are other factors propelling the growth rate of the biomaterials market. In addition, biomaterials have proven to be very abrasion resistant, with high durability and good corrosion resistance, and wear and tear of the objects, due to which they can be used in manufacturing a wide variety of objects in various fields. Furthermore, technologically advanced products have led to the production of 3D printing technology, which has made a revolutionary change in medicine. Thus, these factors are prophesied to drive the growth of the global biomaterials market over the forecast period.


However, factors like the high cost of biomaterial production and polymers, inflammatory responses found because of compatibility issues, and complications with these products limit the growth rate of the global biomaterials market. Lack of knowledge of biomaterial devices is slowly hampering demand for the market. The equipment in the laboratories requires massive amounts for maintenance and installation; strict rules and regulations taken by the government in concern for patients' health are limiting the market's growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global biomaterials market:

The World Health Organization declared a pandemic on March 11, 2020, in response to the recent acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) outbreaks (COVID-19). Biomaterials are synthetic or natural materials that are artificially derived and used in medical technology to enhance damaged tissues and organs. Biomaterials interacting with biological processes are used in medical applications such as respiratory, dental, orthopedic, and neurological disorders. Moreover, heavy funding by government agencies for the invention of new goods provides new scope for the growth of the biomaterials market. With the World Health Organization (WHO) declaring the COVID-19 epidemic a pandemic, several established pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical firms and small start-ups have moved forward to produce therapies and vaccines to combat the novel coronavirus infection. However, the pandemic and nationwide lockdowns have resulted in revenues declining because most countries are major biomaterials suppliers. As a result, the demand for the biomaterials market suffered a minor downturn during this pandemic.

This research report has segmented and sub-segmented the global biomaterials market into categories based on biomaterial type, application, and region.

Biomaterials Market - By Biomaterial Type:

  • Ceramic Biomaterials
  • Metallic Biomaterials
  • Polymer Biomaterials
  • Natural Biomaterials

Based on biomaterial type, the Metallic Biomaterials segment accounted for the largest share of the Global Biomaterials Market in 2019. This segment's dominant share is mainly due to the extensive use of metals in manufacturing cardiovascular, dental, and orthopedic medical devices. Furthermore, since biomaterials are made up of artificial or natural materials, metals are also used to manufacture implants, fabricate structures, or replace lost or diseased biological structures. This might help in improving the quality of life and longevity of human beings since metals have the excellent property of thermal conductivity and other mechanical properties, which makes them find application in many fields, such as in stents in blood vessels, artificial valves in the heart, replacement implants in elbows, hips, ears, shoulders, knees, and orthodontal structures. Thus, to meet the demands of the rapidly aging population, this segment is expected to grow at a high rate over the forecast period.

However, during the forecast period, the segment of polymeric biomaterials is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR due to the increasing use of polymers in soft tissue applications such as plastic surgery—the expanding use of polymers in healthcare and soft tissue, such as plastic surgeries. For many years, researchers have developed many new strategies for the exploration of Natural and synthetic polymers to successfully design advanced polymer biomaterials to be applied in the field of tissue engineering and regeneration, a fast-growing industry at a high pace in recent years. Therefore, recent technological advancements have advanced self-healing and shape-memory properties in preparing innovative polymeric biomaterials. This has helped the manufacturers approach new methods of developing hydrogels, films, and 3D printable biomaterials using different polymeric biomaterials. In addition, its properties like flexibility, longevity, biocompatibility, bioinertness, and durability have increased ophthalmological disorders. Based on usage, both biodegradable and bio-stable polymers are used in healthcare. Thus, these factors are hoping to drive the market over the forecast period under this segment.

Biomaterials Market - By Application:

  • Orthopedic
  • Dental
  • Cardiovascular
  • Plastic surgery
  • Wound healing
  • Ophthalmology
  • Tissue engineering
  • Neurological
  • Others

Based on application, the orthopedic segment accounted for a significant share of the biomaterials market worldwide in 2021. In contrast, dental applications have grown faster over the past few years. Furthermore, the rising concern for healthcare and the growing urban population propel the market's growth. In addition, seeking knowledge of next-generation sequencing techniques is ascribed to bolster the demand of the Global Biomaterials Market. Besides, increasing biomaterials applications in various applications, which also result in a high success rate, are prompting the market's need.

The neurological segment is anticipated to dominate the market under this segment over the forecast period. This is mainly attributed to the fact that there have been rising cases of related neurological disorders in recent years across the world. Thus, there has been a growing need for effective treatment methods for these diseases, resulting in market players and manufacturers shifting focus on biomaterials with the efforts underway to produce an ideal scaffold. They aim to improve the limitations of purely cellular therapies, produce biomaterials that exactly match the biological and mechanical properties of the tissue, and also study the philosophy of neural tissue engineering, which has emerged recently.
