Global Biodegradable Bone Graft Polymers Market: Overview
Over the years, bone grafting methods have undergone massive transformation. They have shifted from traditional autologous and allogeneic bone grafts to synthetic ones that are biodegradable and biocompatible. Natural biodegradable polymers, namely collagen and chitosan have been researched widely for the same purpose. They can offer mechanical strength and cost less. Such factors are driving the global biodegradable bone graft polymers market.
An upcoming report on the global biodegradable bone graft polymers market is expected to be a valuable repository of information. With detailed information on growth drivers and deterrents, competitive dynamics, and product, application, and regional segments, the report could prove to be highly useful for key stakeholders in the global biodegradable bone graft polymers market.
Global Biodegradable Bone Graft Polymers Market: Key Trends
The demand in the global biodegradable bone graft polymers market is predicted to rise at a healthy clip in the next couple of years because of the rising population, particularly of the elderly, worldwide. The aged are highly prone to joint and bone issues and often require joint reconstruction surgeries. Those include hip, knee, and others. This has pushed up demand for biodegradable bone graft polymers, along with steady demand from various dental procedures.
Another factor providing a major impetus to the global biodegradable bone graft polymers market is the continued research and development activity in the field. For instance, natural biodegradable polymers, namely chitosan are being researched upon widely for their unique perceived benefits. This is because they have the ability to bring down costs and better mechanical strengths significantly. Chitosan already finds application in implants such as anchors, tacks, needles, arrows, and screws in knee and shoulder surgeries. This is because it is devoid of cytotoxic effects and can be moulded without much hassle. Besides, chitosan also finds application in bone fixation, arthroscopy, craniomaxilliofacial, and spine application.
All such research and development activities coupled with the strengthening healthcare infrastructure is predicted to have a positive impact on the global biodegradable bone graft polymers market.
Global Biodegradable Bone Graft Polymers Market: Regional Outlook
With respect to geography, Asia pacific biodegradable bone graft polymers market appears the most promising. This is because of the presence of developing nations such as India, China, Thailand, and Malaysia in the region. Prices of implants are expected to lessen in these nations in the next couple of years because of proliferation of local manufacturing facilities. This is likely to up demand for biodegradable bone graft polymers market.
Meanwhile, Europe and North America could already be established biodegradable bone graft polymers market. Nations of U.K. and France are mainly powering the market in the region. Going forward, Brazil could also emerge as a potential market since almost 2 million dental implants are carried out in the region annually.
