DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/ls7kgx/global) has announced the addition of the "Global Biomaterials Market 2012-2016" report to their offering.
The analysts forecast the Global Biomaterials market to grow at a CAGR of 14.85 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing aging population. The Global Biomaterials market has also been witnessing the emergence of innovative biomaterial products. However, high R&D costs could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
The key vendors dominating this space include Biomet Inc., Evonik Industries AG, Exactech Inc., and Wright Medical Group Inc.
The other vendors mentioned in this report are 3DM Inc., AdvanSource Biomaterials Corp., Allergan Inc., Alphatec Spine Inc., Amedica Corp., Angiotech Pharmaceuticals Inc., Basf SE, Bayer AG, Berkeley Advanced Biomaterials Inc., Biocomposites Ltd., BioSyntech Inc., Cam Bioceramics BV, Carpenter Technology Corp., Ceradyne Inc., Ceramtec Collagen Matrix Inc., CollPlant Holdings Ltd., Covalon Technologies Ltd., CryoLife Inc., Dentsply International Inc., Depuy Orthopaedics Inc., Dsm Biomedical Inc., ETEX Corp., Heraeus Medical Components Inc., Hycail Finland OY, Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corp., Invibio Ltd., Kyocera Corp., Landec Corp., Materion Corp., Medtronic Inc., Morgan Technical Ceramics, Orthovita Inc., Osteotech Inc., Purac Biomaterials, RTI Biologics Inc., Sigma-Aldrich Corp., Starch Medical Inc., Stryker Corp., Ticona GmbH, Ulbrich Stainless Steels & Special Metals Inc., and Zimmer Holdings Inc.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: There has been steady innovation in the Global Biomaterials market with several players increasing R&D expenditure every year. For instance, the use of carbon fiber in conjunction with biomaterials for the manufacture of composite materials is being explored. While innovation is imperative in an industry such as this where competition is rampant, the need for novel solutions to cater to patient needs in the Medical industry is also expected to lead to innovation in the market. Biomaterials were traditionally used for repair and replacement of body tissues. However, there has been an increasing focus on the provision of biomaterials for self-healing in patients. Thus, the Global Biomaterials market is expected to witness innovation.
