Medical Implants Market

Medical Implants Market Is Expected To Be Flourished By Rising Demand For Minimally Invasive Surgery

The medical implants market comprises of medical devices such as pacemakers, orthopedic implants, spinal implants, breast implants, contact lenses, intraocular lenses, neurostimulators, drug-eluting stents and coronary stents that are implanted inside the human body to treat medical conditions or replace missing biological structures. Medical implants enhance mobility, improve organ functionality, and reduce pain for patients. With the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases and lifestyle disorders, the demand for medical implants has increased significantly. Orthopedic implants are widely used to treat deformities and injuries related to joints, bones, and muscles. In addition, the growing preference for minimally invasive surgeries requiring shorter hospital stays and quick recovery times has boosted demand for medical implants. The global medical implants market is estimated to be valued at US$ 120 billion in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 8.1% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Dynamics:

Rising demand for minimally invasive surgeries is expected to drive the medical implants market growth over the forecast period. Minimally invasive procedures reduce surgical risks, decrease hospital stays, lower healthcare costs, and promote faster recovery as compared to open surgeries. According to a study published in the British Journal of Surgery in 2022, minimally invasive procedures reduced surgical site infections by 37%, hospital stays by 1.8 days, and overall costs by $3,342 per patient as compared to open surgeries. Growing awareness about the advantages of minimally invasive techniques and availability of advanced implants is increasing the adoption of medical implants for various therapeutic applications. Additionally, increasing incidence of bone diseases such as osteoarthritis is also anticipated to fuel the demand for orthopedic implants over the next few years. According to the Arthritis Foundation, osteoarthritis affects over 32.5 million adults in the United States alone. Thus, increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, rising geriatric population, and growing preference for minimally invasive surgeries are some of the key factors expected to propel the medical implants market growth during the forecast period.

Segment Analysis

The medical implants market is dominated by metallic biomaterials sub segment. Metallic biomaterials such as stainless steel, cobalt-chrome alloys and titanium alloys are widely used in applications like orthopedic and trauma implants. This sub segment accounts for over 60% of total medical implants market share owing to properties like high strength, durability and biocompatibility of metallic biomaterials. Trauma implants such as plates, screws, rods are predominantly made from titanium and stainless steel.
