On the basis of type of material, the global market is segmented into bioinert ceramics, bioactive ceramics, bioresorbable ceramics, and piezoceramics. The bioinert ceramics segment is further divided into zirconia. alumina, and others (titanium, pyrolytic carbon, and silicon nitride). The bioinert ceramics segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Bioinert ceramics exhibit high fracture toughness, low thermal conductivity, excellent resistance to wear and corrosion, and extremely high bending and tensile strength. Owing to their greater hardness as compared to other metal alloys, bioinert ceramics are widely used in the orthopedic and dental industry.
Based on application, the market is segmented into dental applications, orthopedic applications, cardiovascular applications, surgical instruments, diagnostic instruments, plastic surgery, and other applications (cancer, dialysis, drug delivery systems, and gene therapy). The plastic surgery segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The high growth in this segment can be attributed to the growing number of elderly people, positive public perception towards cosmetic surgeries, and technological advancements.
