Global Hydroxyapatite Market Drivers:
Growing demand from prosthetic applications is fostering market growth
Hydroxyapatite is widely used in biomedical applications to coat/form prostheses or implants and as a filling material. Also, increasing healthcare expenditure across developed countries is propelling market growth. According to the journal published by the University of Toronto, Canada spends approximately 11.1% of its GDP on healthcare compared to other high-income countries. The government primarily funds the Canadian healthcare system, with only 30% from the private sector. Health expenditure in Germany in 2021 was EUR 465,707 million.
Increasing demand from orthopedic application is augmenting market growth
Orthopedic implants are used to support a broken or missing bone or joint. Growing prevalence of arthritis, osteoporosis, and other joints related products is also creating demand for orthopedic devices. According to a recent analysis of the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) data, approximately 1.71 billion people worldwide have musculoskeletal conditions. Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, osteoporosis, osteopenia, and other joint conditions are included in musculoskeletal conditions.
Global Hydroxyapatite Market Opportunities:
Advent of hydroxyapatite ceramics is expected to offer potential market opportunities. For instance, in September 2018, Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc., a global marketer of life science research and clinical diagnostic products, announced the launch of two new chromatography media for process protein purification: CHT Ceramic Hydroxyapatite XT Media and Nuvia HP-Q Resin.
Increase in consumer awareness, and surge in interest as a biomaterial for use in prosthetic applications are expected to present significant growth opportunities. Moreover, growing popularity of micro-sized hydroxyapatite is again escalating market growth.

Global Hydroxyapatite Market Trends:
Hydroxyapatite is gaining popularity as an additive for dental products
Hydroxyapatite has become a popular additive to dental products. It can remineralize and strengthen teeth, increase fluoride absorption and help prevent cavities. It can also be used in bone grafting procedures to fill bone voids or defects. The benefits of hydroxyapatite include its ability to stimulate bone growth, its osteoinductive properties and the fact that it is nontoxic and biocompatible.
Synthetic nanocrystalline hydroxyapatite is a growing trend
Synthetic nanocrystalline hydroxyapatite has been shown to have beneficial effects in the restoration and maintenance of tooth enamel. It remineralizes enamel and helps to fight bacteria, while being gentle on the enamel. It is available in a variety of formulations, including toothpastes, mouthwashes, gums, and chewing surfaces. It can also be used as a fertilizer to improve soil quality and water retention. It can be fabricated into nanoparticles or pellets and is slowly released into the soil for long periods of time.
Global Hydroxyapatite Market Restraints:
Poor mechanical properties hydroxyapatite
One of the major challenges faced by the hydroxyapatite market is the poor mechanical properties of this material, which limits its load-bearing capabilities.
High cost of implants
For instance, in India, a single implant with its prosthesis (cap/crown) would cost between 20,000- 50,000 INR, depending on the type and brand of the dental implant used. A bridge would cost between 9,000 and 30,000, depending on the material used (PFM/Zirconia/Emax). Such high cost of implants is expected to restrict its adoption in healthcare sector, thereby hindering market growth.

Global Hydroxyapatite Market Segmentation:
The global hydroxyapatite market report is segmented into type, application, and geography
Based on type, the market is segmented into nano-sized, micro-sized, and greater than micrometers. Out of which, nano-sized is expected to dominate the global market over the forecast period and this is attributed to the growing application in bones and teeth enamel due to its properties, such as bioactivity, biocompatibility, osteoconductivity, non-toxicity, and non- inflammatory nature.
Micro-sized segment is also expected to witness significant growth in the near future and this is owing to the growing demand from tissue engineering, drug and gene delivery, orthopedic and dental implant coating, and endodontic treatment like pulp capping.
Based on application, the market is segmented into dental care, plastic surgery, orthopedic, and other applications (including non- medical applications). Out of which, dental care is expected to dominate the global market over the forecast period and this is attributed to its biocompatible property.

*Definition: Hydroxyapatite is a natural mineral that occurs in the body and has similar chemical characteristics to bone. It is therefore an effective bone substitute that can be used to replace or reshape bone lost due to injuries, surgery or osteoporosis
Hydroxyapatite is an essential component of both bone and teeth. This natural mineral makes up about 97% of tooth enamel and 70% of dentin. HA is also used in a variety of medical applications, including dental implants and hard tissue reconstruction. The most common form of hydroxyapatite is naturally occurring in the human body, but a synthetic version called nano hydroxyapatite (NHA) is also available for use in medicine. NHA is made from a special blend of calcium and phosphorus, forming a dense mineral coating that can help heal damaged or weakened joints. NHA is a great addition to joint replacement surgeries because it helps the bone integrate with the new implant and lessens the risk of rejection by the body. The coating also encourages new bone growth around the implant itself.
The global hydroxyapatite market is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period owing to its increasing use in orthopedics, biochemical research, dental care, and others. The growth of the hydroxyapatite market is driven by several factors including rising demand for orthopedic and dental implants, the availability of low-cost synthetic hydroxyapatite implants, and the development of nano-hydroxyapatite coatings that promote bone healing in bone implant procedures at a faster rate. In addition, increasing demand for cosmetic dentistry is also likely to stimulate growth of this market.
On the other hand, high cost of implants is expected to hinder the market growth over the forecast period.
