Biomaterials Market Trends:

Development of 3D Printing Technologies

The introduction of novel innovations, including 3D printing technologies, is improving the ways in which medical implants and devices are designed and manufactured. Moreover, they enable the production of patient-specific and complex shapes that are difficult or impossible to achieve with traditional methods. Consequently, these technologies find extensive applications in fields, such as dentistry, orthopedics, prosthetics, etc., where anatomical precision is crucial. This, in turn, is one of the lucrative biomaterials market recent opportunities. For example, in February 2024, Nanavati Max Super Specialty Hospital launched a medical 3D printing laboratory in Mumbai to facilitate high-precision surgeries. This pioneering facility is closely integrated with oncology to offer state-of-the-art precision surgeries that are required to be performed accurately and carefully in reconstructive orthopedic, oncologic, and specialized dentistry surgeries. Additionally, the widespread integration of 3D printing technology in biomaterials for creating customized and complex medical devices and implants tailored to individual patients' anatomies is further gaining extensive traction across the globe. For instance, in October 2023, a study was published that assisted the occupational therapists at the Haukeland University Hospital in Bergen to develop personalized hand orthoses by using 3D printing and scanning technologies, which can reduce pain, minimize deterioration, enhance patient compliance, etc. Apart from this, 3D printing allows for the incorporation of gradients of materials with varying mechanical properties, which is also positively influencing the market. For example, in October 2023, Evonik launched implant-grade filaments and carbon-fiber-reinforced PEEK for numerous medical applications. Furthermore, these technologies assist in the treatment of chronic diseases, which is projected to fuel the overall biomaterials market outlook in the coming years. For example, in July 2023, through joint research with the Korea Research Institute of Bioscience and Biotechnology, the Korea Institute of Machinery and Materials, and the institute under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Science and ICT launched the world's first 3D bioprinting technology that enhances the function of natural killer (NK) immune cells. 

Innovations in Tissue Engineering

Tissue engineering plays an important role in biomaterials research. It is gaining immense popularity for developing biological substitutes to maintain, restore, or improve tissue function. For example, in June 2023, OrganaBio announced the introduction of NeoPAC placenta and umbilical cord tissues that are specifically designed to accelerate the progress of regenerative medicine and cell therapy. Moreover, by providing both Research Use Only (RUO) and clinical-grade tissues, OrganaBio encourages researchers to tap into the potential of birth tissues, thereby enabling the development of innovative therapies to address numerous medical conditions. Apart from this, the rising demand for novel scaffolds that are materials engineered to cause desirable cellular interactions to facilitate the formation of new tissues is also elevating the market. For instance, in June 2023, 3DBioFibR, one of the leading innovators in tissue engineering, released two new collagen fiber products, namely CollaFibR 3D and μCollaFibR scaffold. These variants offer significant benefits for tissue culture and tissue engineering applications. Additionally, the elevating investments in R&D activities and research facilities by various organizations to enable the engineering of more structurally and functionally accurate tissues are contributing to the biomaterials market revenue. For example, in January 2023, the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) established the Center for Biomedical Engineering Technology Acceleration (BETA Center), a new intramural research program to accelerate the validation, development, and dissemination of cutting-edge technologies. The center focuses on several areas, such as biosensing, engineered and synthetic biology, biomedical imaging, nanomaterials and biomaterials, etc.

Growing Applications in Wound Dressings

The rising adoption of biomaterials in advanced wound dressings, as they help in improving the healing process and outcomes for numerous types of wounds, including acute and chronic injuries, is acting as a significant growth-inducing factor. Besides this, key players are developing sustainable materials for wound care. For example, in March 2024, a team of scientists at the Institute of Advanced Study in Science and Technology (IASST), under the Department of Science and Technology, introduced an eco-friendly wound dressing material made using banana fibers. Moreover, all the materials utilized in creating this innovative dressing material are locally available and natural, making the manufacturing process cost-effective, simple, and non-toxic. Apart from this, the increasing inclination towards bio-material-based wound dressings is elevating the biomaterials market prices. They can be produced from various materials, including foams, hydrogels, films, etc., that are often imbued with bioactive substances like antimicrobial agents to reduce infection and promote tissue regeneration. For instance, in May 2022, Amferia AB, a Swedish medical device startup, was granted a foundational patent by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for an antimicrobial material based on an amphiphilic antimicrobial hydrogel. In line with this, in June 2023, according to the findings published in the Journal of Biomaterials Advances, a team of researchers from Queen's University of Belfast designed a 3D printed bandage, also called a scaffold, which presents an innovative method of treatment to heal diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs).
