Category : Healthcare and Pharmaceuticals | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC391


Surgically implanted tissues or medical devices in human body are called medical implants. These implants can either be positioned temporarily or permanently in the human body and can be unfastened when no longer required. Medical implants are generally used to support or replace a damaged body organ to identify errors in a healthy body functioning as well as to enhance the overall functioning and are usually made up of tissues, metals, ceramics, plastics, bone, skin or other natural materials. These artificial tissues or devices help in the enhancement of an existing biological organ and are used as a replacement of any desecrated biological organ. Medical implants associate a variety of risks including implant failure, surgical risks or infections. Various applications of medical implants include orthopedic, cardiovascular, dental surgeries, neurological ailments among others. Moreover, major medical implant surgeries include delicate human body organs such as defibrillators, artificial joints implants, spinal fusion stimulators, pacemakers, kidney and heart implants, hearing implants and eye implants. Use of medical implants is majorly witnessed in aged population since they are more susceptible to ceaseless diseases such as endovascular diseases, cardiovascular diseases, dental disorders, and orthopedic disorders. Medical implants generally employ microelectromechanical systems technology and the acceptance of such devices is increasing due to increasing investments in research and development in this technology. Introduction of technologically advanced devices such as novel medical implant devices, favorable demographics and positive eco-financial dynamics coupled with augmentation in merger and acquisition activities in the healthcare industry are some other key elements scaling the global medical implant market to newer acmes.

Market Dynamics

Major factors driving the global medical implants market include rising prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer, cardio ailments, etc. along with the growth in aging population, worldwide. Moreover, rising awareness towards the use of artificial implants coupled with technological advancements in medical implant techniques are some other factors surging the overall growth of global medical implants market. Also, factors such as rise in osteoporosis fractures, especially among children, aging people and increase in physical illness such as obesity are also boosting the growth of medical implants market, globally. Introduction of new technologies such as 3D technology, patient-specific medical implants (knee arthroplasty) and sculpture in AutoCAD offer numerous advantages. However, lack of skilled health care professionals, high cost of implants and inadequate reimbursement policies are the factors restricitng the growth of global medical implants market.
