Global Medical Grade Silicone Market: Growth Factors

The global medical grade silicone market is highly influenced by the growing demand for surgical reconstructive components, heart pumps, defibrillators due to its hydrophobicity and biocompatibility properties. The orthopedics and prosthetic devices are manufactured using medical-grade silicone due to their appearance and lightweight. Furthermore, the spike in the need for disposable devices will significantly scale up the demand for medical-grade silicone. Liquid silicon is highly utilized in infant care products like bottle nipples. However, it is also utilized in seals, electric connectors, and membranes. Moreover, the growing prevalence of osteoporosis is likely to uptick the demand for these silicones globally. The adoption of the modern day lifestyle is transforming the concept of skincare, which in turn is resulting in growing incidences of skin implant and cosmetic surgeries. Medical-grade silicone products are highly utilized in these surgical procedures. In addition, the fast paced lifestyle has also revolutionized the food habits that have suddenly led to the spike in several diseases including cardiovascular, thereby expediting the demand for medical grade silicone globally. The availability of low-cost healthcare facilities in developing regions like Malaysia, Singapore, India, and China coupled with the growing disposable income of the people in these regions are likely to promulgate the growth of the global medical grade silicone market exponentially. Silicone elastomers possess superior properties when compared to adhesives, foams, and silicone gels in terms of high productivity, oil & fuel resistance, chemical & solvents, inertness, and temperature variation. These factors together contribute towards the growing utilization of silicone elastomers in several sectors including drug delivery, vascular, surgical, diagnostic, and neuromodulation. Most importantly, medical implants are highly adopted to substitute missing or damaged biological parts. They are placed inside or on the surface of the body. Implants help in providing support, monitoring body functions, and delivering medication to tissues and organs. Manufacturers are fuelling their research and development activities in order to launch innovative products in the market and generate huge revenue out of it. Additionally, the harmonization of rules and regulatory standards is likely to offer an exponential growth curve in the market in the coming years.

Global Medical Grade Silicone Market: Segmentation

The global medical grade silicone market can be segmented into application, product, and region.

By application, the market can be segmented into oral care products, contact lens, medical tapes, medical devices, orthopedics components, prosthetics, and others. The prosthetic segment accounts for the largest share in the global medical grade silicone market due to the growing number of clinical trials and successful clinical outcomes. However, the ongoing technological advancements and the advent of cost-effective products are likely to expedite the growth of the segment.

By product, the market can be segmented into forms, medical coatings, medical adhesives, elastomers, and others. The elastomers segment holds the largest share in the global medical grade silicone market due to the excellent properties offered by these polymers like fire resistance, exceptional thermal conductivity, high tear strength, hypoallergenic, and several others.

Global Medical Grade Silicone Market: Regional analysis
