Medical technology is one arena where precision ceramics are both highly valued and expected to increase in use for decades to come. Advanced ceramics serve a wide variety of cutting-edge treatments and technologies.
As demand increases, The Medical Ceramics Market is projected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 8.63% from 2020 through 2027.
Precision ceramics fit the bill for use in:
As technology continues to make medical treatments more precise, the need for precision components in these advanced devices will be more important than ever before.
Today’s precision ceramics and advanced glass components make applications possible that were either impossible or inconceivable only a few years past. Due to their unique material properties, precision ceramics lead the way in medical technology.
One example is implantable electronic devices like neurostimulators that send pulses to nerves, treating conditions as diverse as sleep apnea, chronic depression, and even obesity. These devices rely heavily on advanced ceramic parts and continually demand smaller and more precise components.
Another advancement is in ceramic resonators, which improve results from targeted MRI imaging. Due to their ability to focus the magnetic field, they are promising alternatives to dedicated RF coils. In nuclear medicine, ceramic scintillators are making the next generation of PET scanners more affordable.
