Global Bone Cement Market: Projected Rise in Adoption of Bone Cement in Dentistry

Renewable energy

The global bone cement market is currently valued at more than USD 266 million and is expected to surpass USD 345 million by 2021, says Technavio.

Technavio has announced its latest market research report on the global bone cement market, under its orthopedics and medical devices portfolio. This market analysis discusses the major drivers and key emerging trends and offers an analysis of key vendors like DJO Global, Stryker, Smith & Nephew, TEKNIMED, and Zimmer Biomet.

According to Barath Palada, a lead analyst for orthopedics and medical devices research at Technavio, “Vendors are focusing on developing bone cement specifically for interventional procedures due to the growing number of interventional procedures in emerging economies. Cook Medical, for example, offers Vertefix radiopaque bone cement, which is used for the fixation of vertebral compression fractures during an interventional procedure.”

TEKNIMED provides High V+ cement radiopaque bone cement with antibiotic-loaded additives for reducing infection rates. The cement contains a large quantity of a radiopaque agent (9% hydroxyapatite (HAP)and 27% BaSO₄) allowing perfect visualization, an essential feature during percutaneous vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty procedures. The availability of such products is propelling the adoption of bone cement in interventional procedures across the globe.

Increasing use of antibiotic-loaded bone cement

With growing infection-related risks, vendors and researchers have been focusing on developing antibiotic-loaded bone cement. Furthermore, vendors such as Stryker offers Simplex P Bone Cement, which includes an antibiotic that allows localized delivery at the cement-bone interface. It offers commercially blended antibiotic cement, which demonstrated a 50% increase in strength as compared with hand-blended antibiotic cement. Such developments in the market space are likely to fuel the adoption rates of bone cement mixing devices.

Growing adoption of bone cement in dentistry and trauma

Researchers at the University of Minnesota, US, have developed a high-quality dental cement that can be used for unstable dental implants. This product is a non-resorbable dental bone cement made of Portland cement. The cement has improved biocompatibility, better melding capacity, quick set-up, and is not easily washed away by blood. This makes it highly useful in offering initial stability to the dental implant. The created bone cement also has a high tensile strength, which makes it suitable in stress bearing areas.
