Medical Composites Market growth drive by increasing use of medical composites in diagnostic imaging application and surge in demand from composite body implants.

Luton, Bedfordshire, United Kingdom, Dec. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Exactitude Consultancy, the market research and consulting wing of Ameliorate Digital Consultancy Private Limited has completed and published the final copy of the detailed research report on the Medical Composites Market.

The global medical composites market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.3% from 2022 to 2028. It is expected to exceed USD 1452 million by 2028, up from USD 789.5 million in 2021.

Market Overview

Medical composites are made up of two or more materials that have distinct physical or chemical properties that improve structural rigidity and lifespan. Medical composite materials are intended to be both strong and light. As a result, they are more efficient than other traditional medical materials used in surgeries, medical implants, and diagnostic procedures.

Carbon is commonly used in medical applications as a conjugation material to replace metallic or polymeric materials in the production of medical composites. Medical cartilage is a well-known and widely used device in the medical industry.

The continued use of diagnostic imaging technologies such as CT-scan and X-ray in the medical sector has accelerated the development of lightweight, radiolucent, and bio-compatible composite materials. These composites aid in reducing instrument weight and improving patient positioning during treatment. Composite demand is expected to be boosted further by technological advancements in dental materials, where composites are increasingly being used.

Future Applications of Composites in Medicine

Composites are already being used to make exciting prosthetic limbs, and this trend will only continue as more interesting and powerful materials become available. The prosthetics market is worth $2.8 billion, and with 3D printing, more and more composites will be introduced into the medical field at lower cost, allowing for complex devices or products to be produced faster than through more traditional means of production.

The new technique is being tested for use in adoptive immunotherapy, a new treatment in which cells from a patient are extracted, enhanced in the lab, and then reintroduced into the patient's bloodstream to boost the patient's ability to fight cancer.

Because the nanotubes have a large surface area with many surface defects, it works. Because of these flaws, protein absorption is facilitated, resulting in a structural environment similar to that of the body's lymph nodes, where T-cells are normally produced.

Over the next decade, composites will be present in all of the most significant changes and technological revolutions, and they have already had a significant impact on everyday items. Composites will play a significant role in improving our overall quality of life as our healthcare demands rise in the coming decades.

Medical Composites Market: Segmentation 

By Fiber 

  • Carbon fiber

    • Carbon fiber is one of the most versatile composites used in surgical procedures because of its chemical inertness. When exposed to other substances, it does not degrade and is strong enough to withstand lengthy procedures. During the forecast period, the segment will grow at an 8.4% CAGR.

  • Glass fiber

    • Glass fiber medical composites are created by weaving together a large number of extremely fine glass threads. Because these composites are not as strong as carbon fiber composites, their applications in medicine are limited. Because biomedical applications account for the majority of medical composites demand, demand for glass fiber composites is expected to grow at a slower CAGR of 6.6% over the forecast period.

  • Ceramic Fiber

By Applications

  • Diagnostic Imaging

  • Composite Body Implants

  • Surgical Instruments
