US$ 88,482.56 thousand is projected to be the global market by 2028 for Medical Polyoxymethylene

Posted by Prabha Mahajan on September 29th, 2022

The Medical Polyoxymethylene Market was valued at US$ 61,542.14 thousand in 2019 and is projected to reach US$ 88,482.56 thousand by 2028; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.2% from 2020 to 2028.

Polyoxymethylene (POM) is a high-performance engineered thermoplastic, which is traditionally produced through ring opening polymerization of formaldehyde and is mainly supplied in the form of pellets. POM resins are produced by the process of polymerization of formaldehyde so as to provide the homopolymers and copolymers by deploying the other monomers. They are known for its several constructive and mechanical properties which makes them a suitable material to replace metal in production of several medical devices. POM is known to provide metal-like machining properties along with thermal and dimensional stability, ultra-high modulus, enhanced strength, hardness and rigidness, minimal friction coefficient and gas/vapor permeability, dielectric strength, and better retention characteristics at elevated temperature. All such properties make it an ideal material to be used in production of several medical devices and equipment such as dialysis machines, handles for instrument, pharmaceutical closure, inhalers, insulin pens and other such application areas. The growth of the market is strongly driven by advancements in technology along with growth of medical device industry. Rapid urbanization, coupled with economic growth and rise in incidence of chronic ailments and diseases, is further stimulating the demand for medical polyoxymethylene.

The report segmentation of Medical Polyoxymethylene Market as follows:

Based on application, the medical polyoxymethylene market is segmented into dialysis machine, handles for surgical instruments, inhalers, insulin pen, and others. The insulin pen segment held the largest share in the global medical polyoxymethylene market in 2019. The insulin pen segment is considered to be one of the lucrative segments in the medical polyoxymethylene market. Insulin pens are categorized under drug delivery devices, which are easy to use, effective, and quite affordable. These factors have positively impacted the demand for insulin pens across developed and developing economies as many people with diabetes are preferring these pens to administer insulin. The rising number of aging patients, coupled with increasing incidence of diabetes and surging adoption of advance drug delivery methods, is expected to positively affect the demand for insulin pens in the market. Several manufacturers of drug delivery devices are focused on creating complex products by using high-performance materials with better physical and mechanical features, along with advanced functionality and better aesthetics and ergonomics, which could align with the objective of meeting complexity and cost effectiveness. Hence, to cater to the growing demand, manufacturers have come up with the use of polyoxymethylene (POM) in drug delivery devices.

The global medical polyoxymethylene market is segmented into five main regions—North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Middle East & Africa (MEA), and South America (SAM). In 2019, Asia Pacific contributed to the largest share in the global medical polyoxymethylene market. The growth of the medical polyoxymethylene market in this region is primarily attributed to the presence of strong industrial base along with presence of prominent manufactures significantly contributing to the market growth. Growth of medical sector in the developing countries such as China, South Korea, and India provide lucrative opportunities for the growth of the medical polyoxymethylene market in Asia Pacific. Further, rapid urbanization, along with rise in incidence of chronic diseases, is also favoring the market growth in the region. The easy accessibility and availability of raw materials, coupled with cheap labor and low production cost, is yet another factor driving the market in the region.
