Medical Plastics Market

Posted by Nishigandha Sachin Bhushinge on February 25th, 2020

Global Medical Plastics Market was valued US$ XX Bn in 2018 and is expected to reach US$ XX Bn by 2026, at a CAGR of 7.0 % during a forecast period.

The plastic materials sector are playing a key role in the design of medical devices. With their features like lightweight, low cost, ease of processing, flexibility, high biocompatibility, and non-ferrous properties, medical plastic materials are becoming an integral component in an extensive range of medical designs.

Global Medical Plastics Market Dynamics:

An aging population across the many regions is one of the key drivers in the global medical plastics market growth. The plastics materials are becoming the primary choice for many medical instruments and hygienic tools like examination gloves, sterile bandages, and gauze, syringes, which helps to prevent the infection against contamination.

A shift to devices, which containing more plastics is pressuring on care providers to decrease the cost of instrumentation. It helps to push toward high volumes of the medical plastic material and wide usage of the plastic mass-production techniques. Additionally, the technological development in the healthcare sector, favourable reimbursement conditions, and the rapid expansion of the medical device industry’s across the globe are some of the driving factors behind the growth of the market.

On the other hand, the time-consuming governing approval process is expected to limit the growth in the global medical plastics market. Furthermore, some of the regulations to navigate and continuously changing consumer demands are creating medical molding a difficult or key challenge to the growth.

Segment Insight:

The engineering plastics segment is expected to contribute US $ XX Mn share in the global medical plastics market. It provides many benefits over standard plastics like good malleability, rapid production time, low weight, superior resistance to high impact, shock, and chemicals, and enhanced friction reduction. Additionally, an increase in the adoption of some of the innovative technologies like robotic assistance, AI-driven procedures, 3D printing of implants and prosthetics are increasing the demand for engineering plastics.

Injection molding is contributing the lion’s share in the medical plastics market, where precision parts are molded for usage in products like syringes, catheters, surgical instruments. Injection molding is used to manufacture number of identical parts with complex geometries. For this reason, plastics have substituted to the metal in an array of applications for the reduction of the high cost of metal fabrication.

Regional Opportunities in the Global Medical Plastics Market:

Medical care and medical devices are essential for a human issue. North America region is estimated to hold the dominant position in the global medical plastics market. There are nearly more than 6,500 medical device companies present in the North America. The presence of the number of medical device companies in the states California, Florida, New York, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Georgia is contributing significant growth in the market. The existence of robust hospital infrastructure is expected to boost the growth in the market.

On the other hand, the Asia Pacific region is projected to contribute the US$ XX Mn share in the global medical plastics market. The medical devices industry is opening up to 100 percent foreign direct investment in the developing country India is expected to drive the market growth. Many medical device key players are progressively interested in tapping the potential of the market in developing countries.

Global Medical Plastics Market Competitive Landscape:

Medical plastic key players are introducing innovative products and developing new trends to share steady growth in medical end-use applications. Designers are also focused on substituting metal parts with plastic, predominantly in applications where the cost of manufacturing metal parts is expensive over injection molded pieces. The medical device manufacturers are turning to use polymer components to drive down costs and increase product safety.
