Hyaluronic Acid-based Biomaterials Pervade the Healthcare Industry

Hyaluronic acid (HA)-based biomaterials have wide-ranging applications in the healthcare industry. The materials derived from HA are being used to relieve the pain of knee osteoarthritis, in cataract surgeries, in abdominal and pelvic surgeries, and as a dermal filler to erase facial wrinkles. Moreover, an aging population, several product innovations, and underserved end-user segments are creating a huge market for HA-based biomaterials. Some existing end users include rheumatologists, ophthalmologists, plastic and reconstructive surgeons, anti-adhesive wound care specialists, and gynecologists.

This Frost & Sullivan strategic analysis service provides an overview of and an outlook for the U.S. biomaterial applications of hyaluronic acid. The study is segmented into viscosupplementation products for osteoarthritis, viscoelastic products for ophthalmic applications, facial aesthetic implants, and post-surgical anti-adhesion barriers. It enables the development of growth strategies to enhance companies’ market shares and revenue.
