Global Medical Composite Materials Market to Grow at 6.91% CAGR from 2016 to 2020 owing to Emergence of Lightweight Composites

Published Date : Aug 22, 2016

Albany, NY, Aug 22, 2016: has added a new report on the global medical composite materials market to its expanding repository of reports. The report defines medical composite materials and briefs readers about the changing trends, competitive landscape, and the key companies operating in the market. Medical composite materials are compact products designed by generating a combination of components offering enhanced performance as compared to individual components. Medical composite materials offer benefits such as a high strength-to-weight ratio, good impact resistance, malleability, excellent fatigue endurance, and corrosion resistance. 

The growing awareness among manufacturers about the many benefits of medical composite materials has propelled the global market. The report, titled ‘Global Medical Composite Materials Market 2016-2020,’ states that the global market is predicted to exhibit a 6.91% CAGR during the period between 2016 and 2020. The emergence of lightweight composites and heat-resistant composites has driven the global market for medical composite materials in the last few years. However, the market is predicted to be challenged by the product differentiation of medical composites. The growing use of nano-fibers in soft tissue implants is predicted to benefit the global medical composite materials market.

Medical composite materials comprise fiber composites, polymer-ceramic composites, and polymer composites. As fiber composite materials offer good external impact resistance, they are increasingly being used for manufacturing numerous components including implants and prosthetics. Medical composite materials find application in diagnostic imaging, orthopedics, dental care, microspheres, and needles and syringes. The rising application of medical composite materials in diverse sectors is expected to benefit the global market throughout the forecast period.
