The orthopedic biomaterials market comprises of revenue generated by establishments from the manufacturing and sales of orthopedic biomaterials. Orthopedic biomaterials are materials intended to be inserted in the human body as constituents of devices designed to perform certain biological functions by either substituting or repairing various tissues, such as bones, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and others.
The global orthopedic biomaterials market is expected to decline from $12.64 billion in 2019 to $11.43 billion in 2020 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -9.67%. The decline is mainly due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the measures to contain it. Several medical care facilities in affected countries have been completely closed or have been only providing minimal treatment for emergency cases. The orthopedic surgeries have been postponed and, in some cases, cancelled due to the Covid 19 lockdown. The restrictions on non-essential medical services including orthopedic services coupled with slowed production of orthopedic implants and biomaterials due to extending factory closures in various countries are contributing to the markable decline in the market growth. The market is then expected to recover and reach $18.62 billion in 2023 at a CAGR of 17.7%.
