*Definition: Bioceramics are a special class of ceramics which are designed to interact with biological systems. They are primarily used in the healthcare industry. However, they have also found applications outside the medical field. Bioceramics are often used to construct scaffolds. Scaffolds are structures made of bioceramics that are used to replace tissue. These scaffolds are typically made of calcium phosphates.
Bioceramics are a class of biomaterials that is used in dental and orthopedic implants. They are a porous material with a chemical bond to the bone. This material can be shaped, compacted, and reshaped, depending on the purpose of the product. The materials have properties that are good for healing and supporting tissue growth. Bioceramics can be categorized into two main groups: bioactive and bioinert. These materials have a range of physical properties, such as hardness and wear resistance, which make them suitable for surgical procedures. In addition, the materials have antibacterial and chemical inert properties.
Bioceramics market is growing at a high rate. Rising incidence of musculoskeletal disorders in the population is driving market growth. Increasing healthcare spending and advancing medical science will further increase the demand for bioceramics in the future. Moreover, rising health awareness and the increasing number of joint replacement surgeries will provide lucrative opportunities for the participants in the industry.
