Dental Implants represent the largest application area for Medical Ceramics globally, demand for which is forecast to be US$4.5 billion in 2017 and is projected to reach US$6.2 billion by 2022 to reflect the fastest CAGR of 6.7% between 2017 and 2022.
Ceramics constitute a family of materials that are produced by firing non-metallic materials at high temperatures. Two of the most common materials that can be utilized for manufacturing ceramics include alumina and zirconia. These can be fabricated in such a way as to increase their biocompatibility, following which they are called medical ceramics or bioceramics and find application in the medical industry. These materials are extensively employed in surgical implants, prosthetics and a number of medical tools and devices.
