Global Bioactive Fillings Market Overview
Surface reactive glass-ceramic biomaterials are called bioactive fillings. These fillings have a compatible interaction with biological tissues. And thus, have a high application as an implant material in the human body to repair and reverse diseases or permanently scarred tissue. Bioactive fillings react to biological tissues in two phases. Firstly, the alkali metal ions are replaced with hydrogen ions. In the second phase, the Si-O-Si bonds in silica matrix witness hydrolysis, developing a gel-like layer on the surface, which is rich in Si-O-H groups.
The global bioactive fillings market size is anticipated to ascend at a 9.2% CAGR, garnering a valuation of 6.8 billion by 2023. Various driving factors include rising demand in tissue implants owing to proliferation in population, and fast-paced technological innovations in the bioactive fillings sector. Additionally, a strong emphasis on restorative procedures and high success rates of bioactive fillings treatments are anticipated to contribute heavily to the growth witnessed by the global bioactive fillings market.
On the other hand, some factors are likely to slow down and hinder growth in the bioactive fillings market. Such factors include lower fracture resistance, inadequate load-bearing capacity, lack of proper mechanical strength, costly treatments, and possible toxicity.
