One key emerging trend in the market is the advances in technology. Vendors are investing in R&D to develop new and advanced biomaterial products that are compatible and useful in orthopedic biomaterial implants. The introduction of third-generation orthopedic biomaterials such as glass-ceramics, bioactive glasses, and the presence of targeted drugs will increase the growth of the market in the future.

Analysts forecast the Global Orthopedic Biomaterials market to grow at a CAGR of 10.78 percent over the period 2013-2018. According to the report, the increasing incidence of diseases such as musculoskeletal, obesity, trauma, osteoporosis, and other orthopedic-related conditions among the aging population is one of the major drivers. The increasing incidence of orthopedic-related conditions among the aging population has led to an increase in the demand for orthopedic biomaterial products, thereby contributing to the growth of the market.

Orthopedic biomaterial deals with the physical and chemical properties of the material that is implanted into the human body as constituents of devices. The material implanted is designed to perform specific biological functions by substituting or repairing the damaged tissues such as cartilage, bone, ligaments, and tendons. Bone and joint-related degenerative problems affect millions of people worldwide; this is one of the major causes for half of all chronic diseases in people aged above 50 globally. Diseases and conditions in orthopedic such as osteoporosis, arthritis, tumors, trauma, hip and knee replacement, fractures, neck problems, and soft tissue injuries are the main reasons for using temporary, permanent, or biodegradable devices. Therefore, orthopedic biomaterials play a vital role in the implantation of such devices and provide beneficial objective for physiological requirements with the complex interplay of materials properties.
