From $3,188 Mn in 2016 to $3,476 Mn in 2020, Kenya's total health expenditures rose. In 2020, Kenya paid 6.3% of its GDP on health, down from 6.8% in 2014. In 2020, out-of-pocket costs accounted for 23.25% of Kenya's overall current health expenditures. As a percentage of Kenya's current health expenditures, out-of-pocket costs steadily dropped from 36.25% in 2015 to 23.25% in 2020.

Biomaterials are components used in the body to replace or enhance systems or tissues. They can be made of synthetic or natural materials and are commonly used in medical applications. Biomaterials are used to create implants, which can be used to replace missing or damaged body components like teeth, bones, joints, and joints.  Biomaterials are used to create medical devices like pacemakers, tubes, and stents. Biomaterials can be used to distribute drugs. The medicine may be housed in an encapsulated form within the biomaterial that is implanted within the body. Biomaterials are used in tissue engineering to create new cells and organs for transplant. Biomaterials have no adverse effects on the body because they are safe. As a result, they are appropriate for use in medical environments. Each patient's needs can be met with a unique set of nanomaterials. They can therefore be precisely tailored to suit the body, improving the chances that surgeries will be successful. The restoration of harmed tissues and systems can benefit from biomaterials' capacity for promoting tissue regrowth. Biomaterials can be used for longer amounts of time than natural tissues because they outlive them.

Market Dynamics

Market Growth Drivers

Many patients are traveling to Kenya for medical procedures, which is a growingly well-liked location for medical tourism. Since medical travellers frequently need high-quality medical equipment and supplies, this is anticipated to increase demand for biomaterials. The increase in persistent ailments and life expectancy in Kenya are increasing demand for medical implants, such as dental implants, joint replacements, and spinal implants. This demand is expected to lead to a rise in the demand for the biomaterials used in medical devices. As people in Kenya become more aware of the importance of health and wellbeing, they are more apt to seek medical interventions to improve their quality of life. Due to the increased demand for medical prosthetics and equipment, the country's biomaterials industry is expected to grow. As a result of advancements in material science and technology, new biomaterials have been developed that are more durable, biocompatible, and helpful in medical applications. Manufacturers now have the opportunity to develop and market novel biomaterials that will meet the needs of the Kenyan healthcare industry.

Market Restraints

Kenya imports biomaterials frequently, which may result in higher prices and restricted supply. Customizing biomaterials for the local market is also hampered by limited local production. Kenya are becoming more conscious of healthcare, but they are still not as aware of biomaterials and their advantages. This may reduce the country's need for these resources.

Recent Notable Deals

2022: In order to offer orthobiologics and regenerative medicine services, Lattice Biologics, a Canadian business that makes biomaterials, revealed a partnership with Sanitas Hospital in Nairobi, Kenya. With the help of the agreement, Sanitas Hospital will be able to provide patients with cutting-edge biomaterials treatment choices.

Healthcare Policies and Regulatory Landscape

The Pharmacy and Poisons Act, which regulates the importation, production, distribution, and sale of biomaterials, serves as the legal foundation for Kenya's biomaterials regulatory system. The legislation mandates that the PPB be notified of the importation or manufacture of any biomaterials or medical devices in Kenya. Technical and clinical data must be submitted as part of the registration procedure for biomaterials to prove the products efficacy and safety. Before approving registration, the PPB reviews the data and may ask for more details or perform inspections of the manufacturing sites. The Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS), in addition to the PPB, is in charge of guaranteeing the security and caliber of biomaterials in Kenya. KEBS establishes biomaterials standards and performs inspections to verify adherence to those standards. Kenya's government has created laws to encourage the use of biomaterials in healthcare. For instance, the Kenya Health Policy 2014–2030 acknowledges the value of innovation and technology in healthcare and promotes the adoption of cutting-edge technologies, such as biomaterials, to enhance health results.
