Prostheses. Artificial body parts that
are used to replace affected areas are
counted under prostheses. In some cases,
prosthetic materials added with a
healthy bone are used to replace any
spoiled or damaged bone.
What Are These Implants Made Of?
As these parts are meant to be a part
of the human body, there are a lot of
things on the priority list, when choosing
the correct material while manufacturing
these implants. Keeping in mind
the purpose the implants are supposed
to solve, the materials chosen are always
chemically inert, biocompatible,
offer great strength, and are generally
lightweight. Orthopedic prosthetic implants
are mostly made of materials
such as metals, polymers, and ceramics.
In metals, most implants are made of
stainless steel or titanium alloys. Titanium
is widely used as it is lighter than
steel and lasts longer. In the medical industry,
titanium is also used to make surgical
devices such as scissors, forceps,
tweezers, laser electrodes, and more.
Polymers, chemically processed and
linked monomers, are also used in orMedical

thopedics sector. Some examples of polymer
biomaterials suitable for orthopedics
include silicone rubber, polyethylene
(PE), acrylic resins, polyurethanes, polypropylene
(PP), and polymethylmethacrylate
(PMMA). PMMA provides exceptional
primary fixation of the prosthesis.
Ceramics, due to their physiochemical
properties, are used in numerous medical
applications. Their hardness and density
make them useful for bones and
teeth replacement, but they become
weak under pressure. Calcium phosphate
ceramics are commonly used ceramics in
orthopedics. The use of advanced ceramic
materials such as zirconium oxide and
silicon oxide are gaining traction.
The Growing Orthopedic Prosthetics
Implants Sector
Orthopedic prosthetics implants are
emerging as a clinically promising treatment
option for a growing number of
conditions to better match an individual's
anatomy. As a result, the global orthopedic
prosthetic implants market is
rising rapidly.1
The market size of orthopedic prosthetics
implants is expected to reach
www.medicaldesignbriefs.com
about $20 billion by 2026, which accounted
for about $17.5 billion in 2020.
Figure 1 represents the market size of
the orthopedic prosthetics implants
market globally.
One of the reasons behind the growing
demand for orthopedic prostheses
and prosthetic implants is the rising
geriatric population across the globe.
Aging comes with health issues that often
include orthopedic and degenerative
joint conditions such as osteoarthritis,
osteoporosis, low bone density, etc. It
drives the need for more and more orthopedic
prosthetics implants.
The United Nations' World Population
Prospects 2022 estimated that the
total share of the geriatric population is
projected to rise from 10 percent of the
total population (~8 billion until Nov.
15, 2022) in 2022 to 16 percent (9.7 billion)
in 2050.2
Additionally, growing cases of traumarelated
medical emergencies, such as
spinal implants (including both spinal
fusion and nonfusion surgeries), roadaccident
cases, and sporting mishaps
have also heightened the demand for
orthopedic prosthetic implants.
