The global bone graft substitutes market size was valued at USD 3.81 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow from USD 4.04 billion in 2024 to USD 6.67 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period (2024-2032). Bone graft substitutes are biologics that can be used as an alternative to autologous bone grafts. The substitutes consist of allograft, demineralized bone matrix, polymers, hydroxyapatite, and other materials. These substitutes are used in treating bone defects, union or non-union surgeries, and spinal fusion in orthopedics. Furthermore, various benefits of these substitutes, such as safety, biocompatibility, and osteoconductivity to fractured bones, have increased the adoption of these products over the past decade.

The global bone grafts and substitutes market growth is attributed to the increasing incidence of bone diseases such as bone infections and bone tumors and the growing number of orthopedic surgeries worldwide. Moreover, the rising demand for synthetic substitutes and various authorities’ surging number of product approvals are expected to fuel the market growth during the forecast timeframe. For instance, in September 2019, Biogennix LLC received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. FDA for Morpheus-C, a bone graft substitute made of type-1 bovine collagen.


The COVID-19 pandemic has decreased the adoption of substitutes due to lower patient volumes in hospitals and specialty clinics. COVID-19 care-related restrictions imposed by the government declined the number of patient visits and delayed elective surgeries, which impacted the sales of these substitutes. However, the relaxation of the regulations imposed by governments led to increased hospital admissions in 2021. Most trauma and spine-related elective surgeries were started in the healthcare facilities. Such resumption of surgical procedures positively impacted the demand for these substitutes in 2021.

Bone Graft Substitutes Market Trends

Increasing Adoption of Bone Graft Substitutes for Dental Implants to Boost Market Growth

Bone Graft Substitutes Market Growth Factors

Technological Advancements in Bone Graft Substitutes to Drive Market Growth

The substitutes have applications in various procedures such, as spinal fusion procedures for complex fractures and trauma surgeries. The graft substitutes act as an optimum treatment strategy in these procedures and are considered indispensable.

  • For instance, according to the research published by NCBI in October 2019, approximately 30,000 Canadian and 900,000 American adults undergo spine surgery annually.

Such a substantial increase in trauma cases has been observed globally. Additionally, these trauma cases can only be treated and managed effectively with the administration of appropriate bone graft substitutes, ultimately increasing their global demand.

Increasing Adoption of Synthetic Bone Graft Substitutes to Boost Market Growth

The rising use of synthetic substitutes, such as polymer and ceramic, is anticipated to drive the market in the projected years. Several benefits such as reducing the risks involved in injury to the donor site and decreasing risks of complications, are increasing the adoption of synthetic substitutes, thereby spurring the market growth.

Synthetic substitutes consist of materials such as Beta-tri-calcium phosphate, calcium phosphate, and hydroxyapatite. The increasing preference for these products among developed countries is due to their similar chemical composition to human bone.

Furthermore, market players have increased their focus on introducing synthetic substitutes. As a result, the companies have been experiencing strong growth in their revenues.

  • In January 2020, OrthoPediatrics Corp. introduced a synthetic bone graft substitute in the U.S. called QuickPack. It is highly viscous and contains calcium phosphate cement that closely resembles the mineral phase of a bone.

Such product launches are expected to increase the adoption of synthetic substitutes during the forecast period.


Clinical Limitations of Bone Graft Substitutes to Hamper its Demand

The increasing clinical limitations associated with the substitutes include lack of bone formation or incomplete bone formation, adverse tissue reaction, and bone and soft tissue infection. Therefore, this factor is expected to limit the market growth during the forecast period.

Such limitations and increasing risks related to the usage of these products have directed the manufacturers and the U.S. FDA to recall the products. These recalls are expected to decrease the adoption of substitutes thereby, hampering the brand image of the companies.

  • For instance, according to the article published by Becker’s Healthcare in June 2021, Aziyo Biologics recalled many of its FiberCel, an allograft product. The allograft was recalled after several patients who received it tested positive for tuberculosis.

Moreover, a number of companies were also asked by the regulatory bodies to hold their ongoing clinical trials for novel products due to the unsatisfactory results from their clinical studies.

Such product recalls of substitutes and postponement of clinical trials are challenging for the key players to escalate their growth.
