Biomaterial is any substance or combination other than drugs which may be synthetic or natural in origin. These materials can be used at any period of time which replaces totally or partially any organ, tissue or function of the body to enhance the life of individual as stated by American National Institute of Health. The study of biomaterials is known as biomaterials science, which consists of elements such as biology, medicine, chemistry and tissue engineering among others. Biomaterials either occur naturally or are synthesized in the laboratory by using variety of chemical approaches by using metallic components such as ceramics, polymers or composite materials. They often have medical applications and thus they have the ability to comprise a part or whole of the living structure or biomedical devices.
The major drivers for the biomaterials market include increasing aging population, advanced technology, enhanced benefits and rising awareness for biomaterials products. Further research in medical applications is expected to create opportunities for the biomaterials market in the near future.
