Worldwide Medical Ceramics Markets: Medical ceramics represents a major opportunity in the medical materials market over the next few years. They have already established themselves in orthopedic and dental implants; providing a multitude of patients with problem free bone and tooth replacements. Increasingly, prostheses for hip replacement consist of metal ceramic composites. NanoMarkets also believes that bioceramics and their metal composites have a great potential to heal long segmental bone defects and that in the future, orthopedic implants will rely on scaffold-guided bone tissue.

The primary goal of this report is to identify the market opportunities in the medical ceramics sector over the next eight years. This report not only includes a granular forecast and analysis of the more established medical ceramics markets, but also gives a comprehensive analysis of medical nano-ceramics especially in terms of enhancing the healing properties of implantable materials.

This report discusses the commercial aspects of all the current trends in medical ceramics and the numerous applications in which they can be used. The report also profiles key suppliers and analyzes the complete supply chain for medical ceramics. For the firms covered we discuss their strategies and needs along with their strengths and weaknesses.
