Medical polymers are high performance polymers utilized in medical devices and equipments. These are the most preferred material over other conventional materials like glass and metals. Medical polymers exhibit properties like resistance to chemicals and its reactions, durability, lightweight, portability, flexibility, strength, biodegradability, etc. Medical polymers can be moulded smaller as per the functional use maintaining aesthetics. Medical polymers are widely used in packaging of syringes, tablets and other drugs owing to its properties and cost efficiency.
Global medical polymers market report is segmented on the basis of its products as medical resins and fibers, medical elastomers and biodegradable plastics. Medical resins and fibers are further classified as polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE), polyurethane, polystyrene (PS), and others including engineering thermoplastics such as ABS, PC and PET. Medical elastomers are classified as styrene block copolymer (SBC), rubber latex and others that includes TPU, TPV and TPO.
Medical resins and fibers are the major products of medical polymers worldwide. Polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE), polyurethane, etc. find variety of applications in the global medical polymers market. Medical devices and equipment, medical packaging and others including tissue engineering and cardio stents are the major applications in the global medical polymers market. Medical devices and equipment account for largest share in applications market followed by medical packaging.
There is huge potential for biodegradable devices and equipment in medical implants during the forecast period. A trend is observed in the global market moving from conventional materials to high performance polymers. In addition, declining demand for glass and metals in medical devices and equipments has boosted the growth of the global medical polymers market. Home healthcare treatments and aging population have aggregated the demand for medical polymers in the global market.
