Implant medical device is a medical device manufactured to replace a missing biological structure, support a damaged biological structure, or enhance an existing biological structure. Medical implants are man-made devices, in contrast to a transplant, which is a transplanted biomedical tissue. The surface of implants that contact the body might be made of a biomedical material such as titanium, silicone, or apatite depending on what is the most functional. In some cases implants contain electronics e.g. artificial pacemaker and cochlear implants. Some implants are bioactive, such as subcutaneous drug delivery devices in the form of implantable pills or drug-eluting stents.
Scope of the Report:
The Polymers in Medical Devices industry is not highly concentrated, there are many manufacturers in the world, and high-end products mainly come from North America and Western Europe.
In the world wide, major manufactures mainly distribute in North America and Europe. In North America, transnational companies, like Dupont and Celanese are taking a leading share in this area. As to Netherlands, DSM has become a global leader. In Germany, it is BASF and Bayer that lead the technology development. In China, the manufactures focus in Tianjin and Shanghai.
North America is the largest consumer of Polymers in medical devices and is expected to retain the higher growth rate during the next five years due to strong growth in medical devices industry. China and Japan have witnessed a major chunk of the production and consumption of Polymers in Medical Devices in the Asia Pacific regi ...
