The Advanced Materials Industry encompasses a full cycle form materials extraction, primary production, processes development and material characterization to product fabrication and testing. The development of advanced materials is associated with the generation of recent knowledge and intellectual  property, a combination of the association with advanced materials .The Advanced materials directorate has in the past financial year developed a baseline study on the sector in south Africa. The study entailed understanding the capabilities, opportunities, global trends, gaps and challenges of the industry, with a specific emphasis on titanium, Nano-materials, advanced composites and Nanotechnology and industrial applications in aerospace, auto motives, construction, and electronics, medical, packaging and renewable energy.

Biomaterials are the non-drug substances which are designed to interact with the biological system either as a portion of medical device or to replace or repair any damaged organs or tissues. Biomaterials can be derived either naturally or synthetically. Tissue engineering has the potential to achieve this by combining materials design and engineering with cell therapy. Biomaterials can provide physical supports for engineered tissues and powerful topographical and chemical cues to guide cells. Biomaterials engineering involves synthesis, processing, and characterisation of novel materials, including polymers, proteins, glasses, cements, textile composites and hybrids. Introducing nanoscale cues such as Nano topography or nanoparticles as therapeutic agents provide an exciting approach to modulate cell behaviour in order to probe the cell-material interface.

Ceramics cover a very wide range of materials from structural materials like concrete to technical ceramics like PZT – a piezoelectric.  Usually they are defined as solids with a mixture of metallic or semi-metallic and non-metallic elements (often, although not always, oxygen), that are quite hard, non-conducting and corrosion-resistant. Ceramic materials and inorganic polymers can be made under low energy conditions such as ambient temperatures and pressures. These materials include aluminosilicates or Novel Applications and Construction Materials, Chemically Bonded Ceramics.
