Bioglass fibers, mostly acknowledged as surface-reactive biomaterials, are more convenient for biomedical applications such as dental and orthopedic. Factors including high flexural strength, durability, and good chemical resistivity are estimated to boost the market share throughout the assessment period.

Demographic changes in the elderly population around the globe will create opportunities for biomedical treatments including bone grafting and dental surgery. The huge geriatric population has increased dramatically over the past 20 years and this considerable change has augmented the number of tissue & spinal surgeries. Bioglass fibers can bind with hard & soft tissues effectively. Moreover, it can also develop the efficacy of bone substitutes by triggering the release of nutrients that can be effective in bone regenerations.

According to the World Health Organization, the old age population (60 years and above) will register an increase from 12% to 22% between 2015 to 2050. Furthermore, advancing age creates many risks for senior citizens including dental & orthopedic difficulties. Rapid technological developments in bone-grafting engineering are expected to expedite many bioglass fiber market opportunities & applications.

Bioglass fibers actively dissolve in tissues and initiate ion-releasing processes to stimulate new bone formations, thereby augmenting their use in biomedical services, such as restorative fillings, in the upcoming years. Furthermore, bioactive materials for use in craniofacial surgeries owing to their significant mechanical & physical properties will account for notable growth in the future. Moreover, antibacterial properties of bioglass fibers are estimated to create opportunities for the treatment of severe cavitary bone defects over the assessment period

However, notable manufacturing costs of bioglass fibers are estimated to hamper the market growth during the forecast timeframe. Factors that make the manufacturing process expensive include high energy requirements and certain medical grade specifications proposing many applications in dental and small-bone replacement activities. Nevertheless, numerous advanced solutions including the reapplication of bioglass fiber products to facilitate wound-healing treatments will gain popularity in the coming years.

However, it is expected that the process technology for different types of bioglass fibers will attain a competitive market share over the assessment period due to a gradual decrease in raw material prices and process upgrades. Moreover, promising osteogenesis and angiogenesis applications in bone tissue reaerations will expand the business opportunities for bioglass fibers during the projected timeframe owing to their high mechanical properties.

Conventional silicate glass will augment the industry size
