Report Description

Medical Implant Market was valued at ~US$ 90 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of ~7% over the forecast period (2021-2027). Medical implants are a distribution of medical devices that are placed on the surface or inside the body i.e., in-vivo. Implants can be prosthetics, used to replace missing parts of the body, whereas others can be used to deliver medication, provide support to organs and tissues, or monitor bodily functions. Implants are generally made of materials like metals, ceramics, polymers, etc. In 2017, approximately 100,000 hip replacements alone were carried out in Wales, England, and North Ireland, of this 80% of the patients were older than 60 years of age.


The increasing geriatric population and chronic illnesses are the key factors increasing the number of medical implants globally. Additionally, the increase in awareness among people about medical implants is also boosting the medical implant market. The governments and medical insurance companies are also aware of the growing industries and are creating policies and mediclaim to make reimbursements with medical implants easier. However, few major factors holding the growth of the market are the high cost of medical implants and efficient reimbursements policies across the globe.

Amid COVID-19, the manufacturing units of these medical implant devices are in shortage. The FDA recently published a list of devices which was unavailable during this pandemic. Furthermore, many non-essential healthcare facilities have come to a halt due to lockdowns and the burden of covid patients on the hospitals. Additionally, even the regulatory approvals in the EU and FDA are taking additional time during the pandemic to approve non-essential implant devices. All this has put a small halt to the industry’s growth.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst Type, Dental Implants holds the major share.”

Based on types, the medical implants market is bifurcated into orthopedic, cardiovascular, spinal, dental, cosmetic, and other implants. Sometimes medication is not enough to cure an illness, and, in those cases, implants are needed. Implants are most common in the elderly population and with the increase in the number of chronic diseases, there is an increase in the number of medical implants. New medical devices come out at a much higher rate than new medicines.

 “Amongst Material, Metallic is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR during the analyzed period.”

Based on material, medical implants are segmented into metallic, ceramic, polymers, and others. The metallic implants segment generated revenue of US$ XX billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period to reach a market valuation of US$ XX billion by 2027F. Metal and metal alloys are mostly used in dental fillings and sometimes in body parts that are to be implanted for long periods. According to FDA, to check the safety of the medical device, all materials being used in the device need to be evaluated for safety.

“Amongst End-User, Hospital segment holds the major share”

Based on end-users, the medical implants market is fragmented into hospitals, clinics, and specialty centers. Most of the high-cost implantable devices are purchased by hospitals. Insurers do not directly pay for these medical devices, instead, they pay for the services i.e., surgery, supplies, nursing care, etc. In 2014, a medicare report states that hospitals spent US$ 14 billion on implantable devices and about US$ 10 billion on medical supplies.
