Carbon fiber medical composites are used in surgical applications, owing to their chemical inertness and lightweight. In addition, medical composite made up of carbon fiber is utilized as a conjugation material in medical application as an alternative over metallic or polymeric materials. Medical cartilage is another device that is widely used in the medical sector. Carbon fiber medical composites help to promote biological resurfacing of damaged areas, making them suitable for use in medical cartilages. Open weave structure of carbon fiber medical composites promote cell growth between individual fiber material that in turn results in suitable repair. In addition, carbon fiber medical composites offer enhanced load-bearing capability, thus making them suitable to be used in artificial limbs. All these factors collectively surge the demand for medical composites, thereby augmenting the global market growth.

However, production of medical composites involves complex process which in turn increase the cost of the product. In addition, shape of medical composites cannot be easily altered is the major factor that is anticipated to restrain the growth of the global market. 

On the contrary, minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is that surgical procedure, which is performed with the use of incision surgical instruments and minimizes patient recovery time. Surge in demand for MIS has further created need for precision surgical instruments, which, in turn, has escalated the demand for medical composites. In addition, these precision surgical instruments help surgeons to perform critical surgical procedures with aid of other imaging systems such as real-time imaging and micro-televisions. Insertion of cannula into body is an example of MIS that is performed with the use of micro-sized surgical instruments and cauterization devices. This factor is anticipated to offer new opportunities for the growth of the global medical composites market. 

The global composites market analysis is done on the basis of fiber type, application, and region. Depending on fiber type, the market is divided into carbon fiber, glass fiber, and others. The applications covered in the study include diagnostic imaging, composite body implants, surgical instruments, and others. Region wise, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Medical Composites Market, by Application

In 2020, the diagnostic imaging application was the largest revenue generator, and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 9.4% during the forecast period. Carbon fiber composites are widely used in diagnostic imaging tables and other imaging accessories such as CT scan tables, MRI tables, and positron emission tomography (PET) tables. Carbon fiber composites are radiolucent, absorb minimal level of radiant energy, and minimize signal attenuation. Minimal signal attenuation further helps to capture clear images of the patient body or targeted body part.
