Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global bioactive materials market to grow at a CAGR of more than 13% between 2016 and 2020. Bioactive materials are highly preferred among several end-user industries, for their unique biomechanical and biochemical properties. The healthcare industry dominates the bioactive materials market due to increased demand from organ failure and replacement procedures, orthodontics, and other coating applications. There is high demand for the use of bioactive materials in implantations as these bioengineered materials are resistant to high moisture content, fracture and wear, and bacterial microleakage. Also, the implantation procedures including bioengineered materials reduce the annual post-implant hospital costs. Several technological innovations and the economic benefits with the use of bioactive materials and bioengineered transplants have led to growing interest in bioengineering and tissue engineering, which act as alternatives to conventional organ transplants.
