Selected Value Chain Analysis done in the full report
Firstly, the value addition in the chain starts from raw material providers who extract silica through mining and excavation processes. This silica is procured by formulators who process it further to form basic silicone such as silicone fluid, silicone elastomer, and resins. Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR), Elastomer, and High Consistency Rubber (HCR) elastomer are the basic forms of silicone procured for cable and tube manufacturing. These raw materials of medical grade tubes and cables are also tested for compliance with the industrial standards.
These forms can be directly procured from the formulators or through third party suppliers. The cable and tube manufacturers use these raw materials to produce tubes, cables, and insulating jackets for general as well as medical applications. There are players devoted to the manufacturing of only medical grade tubes and cables as well. The products are extensively tested for ensuring the medical standards and regulations.
These cables, tubes, and insulations are then moved to the next stage where the distributors avail various types of medical grade cable and tubes from different manufacturers to the end users. These end users are healthcare units or medical equipment manufacturers.
Medical equipment manufacturers procure these products either from the distributors or from the cable and tube manufacturers directly. These cables and wires are equipped in the medical machineries such as X-ray, CT, ultrasound, endoscopy, ECG, EFG, MEG and many others. These finished products are then bought by various healthcare units.
The healthcare units such as hospitals, clinics, diagnostics, emergency care units and others procure tubes and cables either through the distributors or directly from the manufacturers. Tubes are the prominent products procured by the healthcare units from the distributor or the manufacturers.

Excerpts on Market Growth Factors
Diagnostics equipment is projected to generate 9.04 million in 2021.
The states with the highest number of medical device companies include California, Florida, New York, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Massachusetts, Illinois, Minnesota and Georgia where the silicone wires and cables major share of revenue is generated from these regions.
Medical Tubing application accounted for the highest revenue and is projected to be dominant in 2021. Silicone Tubing is highly demanded in ventilation masks, transfusion delivery systems, handles for surgical instruments, breading tubes and other equipment.
As Silicone is resistive to extreme temperature variations it has enabled its huge application in medical field where flexible tubes are needed to handle temperatures which is not possible with other plastics or rubber tubes.
Silicone tubes are also used in mechanical ventilators to support artificial ventilation. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every year more than 300,000 patients receive mechanical ventilation in the U.S. Since, the demand for mechanical ventilator is increasing; hence more silicone tubes are required. Thereby, increasing the U.S. medical silicone wires and cables market.
Each year in the United States, patients contract nearly 1.7 million infections in the hospital while they are being treated for something else Research conducted at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics, Madison, identified that 77% of reusable ECG leads were contaminated with one or more antibiotic-resistant nosocomial pathogen. Hence, to stop the further increase of infections, the disposable lead wires demands have been elevating in the recent years.
