The report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Biomedical Metal Market: Biomet Inc., DENTSPLY International Inc., Invibio Ltd. and Wright Medical Group
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Bayer, Berkeley Advanced Biomaterials, Cam Bioceramics, Carpenter Technology, Ceradyne, DePuy Orthopaedics, DSM Biomedical, Evonik Industries, Heraeus Medical Components, Johnson Matthey, Materion, Orthovita, Osteotech and Teleflex.
The report said: “New developments in titanium-based alloys are one of the major trends being witnessed in the market. These alloys are being developed as an alternative to orthopedic implants and can be fixed through bone tissue ingrowths.”
According to the report, higher demand for orthopedic implants is primarily contributing to market growth. Stainless steel, cobalt-based alloys, and titanium-based alloys are being widely used, as they are biocompatible and resistant to corrosion.
Further, the report states that the threat of metal implants being rejected by the surrounding tissue is a serious drawback that is restricting market growth. The interaction between the implant and the physiological environment in which it has been placed may, at times, lead to the implant being rejected by the surrounding tissue.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
