With the increase in the percentage of aging population worldwide, the
number of individuals suffering from physical disability is also increasing.
Baby boomers born between the years 1946 and 1964 are the major consumers of
the biomaterial products. Plus, more than 20% of the global population is
expected to be over 60 years in 2050 and this segment of the population will
be significantly high in developing countries. This increase in the aging
population will drive the demand for biomaterial products.

Biomaterials are widely used in medical devices, tissue replacements, and
surface coating applications. These materials are also used in the human body
to improve body functions and/or to replace damaged tissues. However, earlier
there was no study done on biocompatibility and consequently there was no
formalized approval process. Therefore, biomaterials were used only in
external prosthetics and dental devices. With the emergence of biotechnology,
the biomaterial market has expanded and is now playing a more important role
in the medical sector. They have emerged from bio-inert materials (materials
that do not react with the biological environment) to biodegradable
materials. In 2010, the biomaterial market was worth $31.9 billion and in the
next five years, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 15%. This
indicates a great opportunity in the market in terms of revenues and market

In the U.S., the orthopedic biomaterial market is the dominant segment,
and is expected to generate revenues of $5.4 billion in 2010. This is
expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.6% from the year 2010 to 2015 mainly due to
an increase in the aging population. In 2007, the aging population in the
U.S. was 50 million and this is expected to rise to $104 million in 2050. New
biomaterials are expensive and their uptake is higher in the U.S. compared to
other developing countries. Cardiovascular is the second-largest market and
expected to reach $4.6 billion in 2010. The wound care biomaterial market is
expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 19.2% from 2010 to 2015.

The increasing number of application areas that allow suppliers a larger
bandwidth for their material development mainly drives the supply side of the
market. The increasing application areas for biomaterial products are
attracting more companies to invest in research and development of newer
materials and improve the performance of the existing products leading to an
increase in demand and boost the market size. Biomaterials are used in a
variety of applications ranging from tissue replacements and surface coating
to medical devices. They are also widely used in drug delivery, gene
transfer, and tissue engineering applications.
