Hydroxyapatite is a naturally occurring mineral form of calcium apatite, phosphorous, calcium, and oxygen. It is also known as hydroxylapatite (HA). It is one of few materials that are classified as bioactive, which means that it can support bone ingrowth and osseointegration when used in dental, orthopedic, and maxillofacial applications. In addition, owing to the excellent properties such as osteoconductivity, bioactivity, biocompatibility, non-inflammatory nature, and non-toxicity it is widely used in aforementioned applications.
Continuous research and development activities to enhance applicability of hydroxyapatite in medical sector, increasing dental care and plastic surgery industry in Asia Pacific region and increased demand for medical implants are some of the major factors behind the growth of the market. Likewise, factors such as rapidly increasing healthcare industry and easy availability of raw materials, rising hydroxyapatite derived oral care products, increasing geriatric population, and rising healthcare awareness among people are further expected to expand market growth during the projection period.
The exclusive COVID 19 impact analysis report by Axiom MRC provides a 3600 analysis of micro and macro-economic factors on the Hydroxyapatite market. In addition, complete analysis of changes on Hydroxyapatite market expenditure, economic and international policies on supply and demand side. The report also studies the impact of pandemic on global economies, international trade, business investments, GDP and marketing strategies of key players present in the market.
The study analyses global hydroxyapatite market based on type, application and geography.
Various types such as nano-size, micro-size, and greater than micrometers are covered in the global hydroxyapatite market report. Nano-size segment dominated the market in 2020 and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. An increasing use of nano-size hydroxyapatite in applications such as bone tissue engineering, orthopedic and dental implant coating, early carious lesions treatment, drug and gene delivery and many others is accredited to the growth of the segment.
The market finds its applications in orthopedic, dental care, plastic surgery, and others. Orthopedic segment is expected to account for the significant market share of the global hydroxyapatite market. The segment is further bifurcated into synthetic and natural source. On the other side, increased use of hydroxyapatite for dental care applications such as in toothpaste is propelling the market growth for dental care segment. Hydroxyapatite in dental care provides major benefits such as makes teeth whiter, glossier, and translucent, reduced tooth pain relief and sensitivity, helps fight and prevent cavities, repairs teeth, and bonds bones, which are further making them more demandable in the market.
Geographically, the study is comprised of the key countries of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World. North America held the largest market share of global hydroxyapatite market and is likely to dominate the market over the estimated time frame. The US and Canada dominated the market in 2020. Well-established healthcare industry and increasing investment in healthcare infrastructure are major factors that attributed to the market growth in NA region.
Alternatively, Asia Pacific is expected to witness fastest growth in the coming years. Factors such as increasing aging population, rising disposable income of the middle-class population, and increasing awareness regarding dental care among consumers are anticipated to contribute to the healthy growth of the market in APAC region.
The major key players of market includes Fluidinova, Alb Technology, Aps Materials, Berkeley Advanced Biomaterials, Bionnovation, Cam Bioceramics, Evonik Industries Ag, Granulab (M) Sdn Bhd, Medicoat Ag, Merz North America, Promimic, Sangi Co., Ltd., Sigmagraft, Sofsera Corporation and Taihei Chemical Industrial Co. Ltd among others.
The study analyses global Hydroxyapatite market based on type, application, and geography. Hydroxyapatite market by type is segmented into nano-size, micro-size and greater than micrometers. The nano-size segment is likely to dominate the market over the forecast period. Increased use of nano-size hydroxyapatite in sveral end use applications owing to its several benefits is attributed to the market growth. The market finds application in orthopedic, dental care, plastic surgery, and others. The orthopedic segment is likely to register fastest growth in years to come owing to the growing adoption of hydroxyapatite as a coating for implants, bone fillers, and bone grafts. Geographically, the study is comprised of the key countries of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World.
