This report on implantable medical devices studies the current as well as future prospects of the market globally. The stakeholders of this report include companies and intermediaries engaged in the manufacture and commercialization of various implantable medical devices and products as well as new entrants planning to enter this market. This report comprises an elaborate executive summary along with a market snapshot providing overall information of various segments and sub-segments considered within the scope of the study. This section also provides the overall information and data analysis of the global implantable medical devices (IMD) market with respect to the leading market segments based on major products, key materials utilized, end-users, and geographies.
Transparency Market Research estimates that the global implantable medical devices market will expand at a healthy CAGR of 4.9% over the period between 2016 and 2024. At this pace, the market is expected to rise to US$49.8 bn in 2024 from a valuation of US$32.3 bn in 2015.
Titanium Implants to Lose Ground to Titanium Alloys and Zirconium Implants
Of the key materials used for manufacturing implantable medical devices, titanium is presently the largest contributor to the global market’s overall revenues, accounting for a share of 42% in 2015. However, the segment is projected to witness a slight decline in its share in the global market to the segment of titanium alloys over the said period. The segment of titanium implants is expected to exhibit a 4.7% CAGR while the segment of titanium alloy implants is expected to expand at a 5.5% CAGR over the period between 2016 and 2024.
The segment of zirconium implants is expected to emerge as the one with the most promising growth opportunities over the said period. The segment is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 6.4% from 2016 to 2024 as compared to other prominently used materials for manufacturing implantable medical devices. The advantage of one-piece zirconium implants that they don’t catch bacterial growth or do not suffer gradual degradation by electrochemical attacks, owing to the absence of any prosthetic connections, is expected to work in their favor and reduce the reliance on titanium implants, which mostly have these disadvantages. The same factor is also expected to work in the favor of titanium alloys and bring a decline in the overall use of titanium for the manufacture of medical implants.

Concerns Regarding Corrosion, Developments in Surgical Field Threaten to Hurt Demand for Conventional Implants
Studies have demonstrated that implants made from materials such as nickel and chromium are prone to corrosion and can trigger cancers. Implants made from cobalt alloy are known to pose risks to human health owing to in vivo ion release; polyethylene implants could be a potential trigger for bone lysis and localized tissue ruptures. Owing to the potential health issues that many varieties of implants cause, patients are more prone to opt for other alternatives. Along with this, the vast developments in the surgical field could also stimulate the consumer to prefer surgeries that promise minimal risk to health.
Moreover, the high costs of medical implants and the concerns regarding post-implantation infections, which may add to the overall cost of implanting a medical device in the body, are also restraining the overall growth prospects of the global implantable medical devices market to a certain extent.
