Overview of Global Medical Ceramics Market

Medical ceramics or bioceramics are preferred in the medical field due to their biocompatibility. They are used in surgical implants, prosthetics, and various medical tools and devices. Medical ceramics have been approved by various regulatory authorities such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).The nontoxicity and high mechanical strength of medical ceramics with minimal or no tissue reaction is expected to boost the demand from the global medical ceramics market.

Though medical ceramics are nontoxic, very small traces of radioelements can be found in even fully refined ceramics, which can have a negative impact on organs and tissues. This may hamper the growth of the global medical ceramics market in the near future. The latest products of medical ceramics are electronic implantable ceramic sensors, which are expected to open new opportunities for the overall market.

The report studies the various types of ceramic materials used in medical applications. Zirconia, aluminum oxide ceramics, zirconia alumina, and other ceramics are commonly used as bioceramics. Zirconia displays extremely high strength and is stronger than alumina. Hence, it is used in devices that generate sufficient wear, such as femoral balls in hip replacements.
