Better bodies with biomaterials: How ceramic and glass contribute to the $110B global market for implantable biomaterials

In this issue we look at the applications of ceramic and glass materials in the human body. The cover story considers both established uses, such as dental implants, and emerging applications, such as glass scaffolds for wound healing, and looks at the expected marketplace growth of such applications in the near future.

In addition to the cover story, this month’s “Deciphering the Discipline” column looks at the role of ions in bone regeneration, and the “Business and Market View” column surveys the global markets for high-strength glass.

The December issue includes ceramicSOURCE 2021, ACerS’ annual reference and buyer’s guide and directory.

Also, this issue contains the final issue of volume one of Ceramic & Glass Manufacturing. The 18-page magazine-within-a-magazine includes industry news and looks at how standards enhance quality and promote reliability.

Finally, check out a book review of a recent ACerS publication, Transparent Ceramics: Materials, Engineering, and Applications.
