Orthopedic biomaterials are organic or synthetic materials used for the treatment of internal fractures. During the last decade different new techniques and materials are introduced for orthopedic implants and surgeries and biomaterials have found a vital role in it. These biomaterials are used in manufacturing of different implants since they do not evoke any immunological reactions with the body, which makes it a first choice for manufacturing of implants. Increasing demand for the orthopedic biomaterial because of its application in knee and hip replacement surgeries, and increasing incident of medical emergencies drive the Asia Pacific orthopedic biomaterial market.
Introduction of novel implants of titanium has increased the success rate of implant surgeries and also contributed to the growth of the orthopedic market in Asia Pacific. Moreover, increasing number of orthopedic surgeries, increasing aging population, and growing governmental support also drive the Asia Pacific market. However, increasing failure in joints implants, stringent regulatory laws, and high cost of treatment may hinder the growth of market during the review period.
The Asia Pacific orthopedic biomaterial market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.6% during the forecasted period 2017-2023.
