Medical Ceramics Market is expanding with the growth of increasing hip and joint problem among geriatric population

Medical Ceramics Market

Medical ceramics are materials used in the medical industry for a range of human contact and non-contact purposes. They are widely used in different medical tools and devices. Manufacturers are manufacturing various ceramic medical devices from alumina and zirconia oxides. These medical ceramics are biocompatible in nature. Medical ceramics usually have high mechanical strength and usually non- toxic in nature. They are widely used in applications such as pressure sensors, valves, filler, hand tools, dental screw & bridges, femoral head implants for hip replacement, and other.

Few of the important factors which are accelerating the demand for the Medical Ceramics Market are:

  • Rising problem of hip and joint problems in the geriatric population: Large number of population today have hip and joint problems. These pains are common in geriatric population as it is considered as part of the aging. But it is important to treat this pain on time as it can turn into chronic and will affect the quality of life. Some of the common types of aches which affect the older people are nerve pain, joint pain, inflammation in hips & fingers, lower back pain, and other. The other factor which might be creating this pain in their body is bone spurs, degenerative disc disease, and arthritis.
  • Advancement in the plastic surgeries: Plastic surgery is a branch of medicine that involves rebuilding, reconstructing or changing the human body.  Today there is development and advancement in the plastic surgery has totally transformed the reconstructive procedures. With a greater awareness of the supply of blood to the skin, fascia, muscle, and bone, the new, inventive use of multiple tissue flaps continuously replaces many conventional reconstructive procedures. This advancement is enhancing the field of surgery as well.
