Follow us on LinkedIn – Biocompatible materials are biodegradable substances exclusively developed and manufactured for use in synthetic solutions designed to repair or replace diseased body tissues. These materials are biosafe with significantly lower risk of tissue rejection by the host. Global market for biocompatible materials is expected to witness healthy growth driven by factors such as technological advancements and growing base of aging population and the ensuing increased need for interventional surgeries for tissue and organ replacement. In addition, increased investments in research and development is expected to boost development of sophisticated biomaterials. Technology improvements in material fabrication and development of new products at competitive prices will continue to shape market growth in the coming years.
Drawing from multiple, diverse disciplines, such as biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering, biocompatible materials represent a challenging area of biomaterial research. There exists large-scale research interest in the development of new materials to address current and future needs in healthcare delivery. By material type, polymeric materials dominate the global market. Natural materials represent the fastest growing material type. Rapid advancements in tissue processing technologies have provided considerable thrust to the use of natural substances in the treatment of several chronic ailments.
Over the last few decades, research in the area of biomaterials was focused on bioinert materials aimed at replacing damaged tissues. Current research focus is gradually shifting towards the development of bioactive materials that help stimulate tissue repair. The market is poised to benefit from the emergence of fourth generation biomimetic biomaterials. These materials are designed with specific structure and function to mimic the extracellular matrix (ECM) of natural tissue. In the coming years, active coatings market is expected to grow led by the sustained demand for coating technologies capable of improving hemocompatibility of medical devices.
