A key factor driving the growth of the market is the biocompatibility of Nitinol. Biocompatibility is a commonly used term in biomedical. It refers to the ability of biomaterials to not produce toxic elements when it comes in contact with living tissues. Bio-materials are used to produce medical devices that are usually inserted in a body for a considerable time. For example, orthodontic braces and stents are used for the alignment of teeth and for coronary heart treatments.

Global shape memory alloy market: Competitive landscape
The level of rivalry between vendors is low in the global shape memory alloy market. It is because most of the applications of shape memory alloys such as biomedical, automotive, and aerospace and defense are technologically sensitive fields. Therefore, buyers usually sign long-term agreements with vendors and restrict vendors from selling a certain variant of shape memory alloys to other buyers. This leads to vendors mostly dealing with their existing buyers.
“Factors such as complex approval processes, especially for medical grade Nitinol and aerospace and defense-grade shape memory alloy limit the threat of new entrants in these sectors. However, emerging applications of shape memory alloys in consumer products and in civil engineering support the entry of new vendors,” says a senior analyst at Technavio.
