Titanium is a key in the Orthopedic market. It mainly concerns knee, hip, trauma, spine and extremities (shoulders, elbows).
The Orthopedic market has an average growth of 4,4% per year for the 5 coming years due to the increase of population, of people over 65 years old, of obesity and a general increase of health care expenses.
TiFast is already partner of the major OEMS and their challengers. TiFast also supplies to distributors and to medical forgers.
The titanium used in the Orthopedic market is mostly in form of bars that will be forged or machined. The specifications are very exigent in terms of metallurgy, micro structure and dimensions.
