Global Medical Polymers Market

Medical polymers are generally used in the medical industry for a wide range of human touch and non-contact applications. These materials are mainly used in medical implants, disposables (gloves, vials, and instruments), devices, and packaging manufacturing. Medical polymers are biodegradable in nature and either remain inactive or are easily processed by the human body. Growing investment in research and development, increasing acceptance of medical polymers, and developing low-cost products drive the healthcare industry's demand for medical polymers. Medical polymers are widely adopted in the healthcare industry to satisfy high-end application specifications. Polymer demand in healthcare industries is increasing considerably due to a substantial increase in demand for medical implants, while demand for implants is increasing mainly due to rising chronic disease incidences.

Based on product type, the market is segmented resins, elastomers, and biodegradable plastics. Resins are further divided into polyethylene (PE),  polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polypropylene (PP), polycarbonate (PC), polystyrene (PS), polyetheretherketones (PEEK), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), hydrogel (acrylate), polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), and polyethylene terephthalate (PET). Elastomers are sub-divided into styrenic block copolymer (SBC), rubber latex thermoplastics polyurethane (TPU), and thermoplastics olefins (TPO). Based on application, the medical polymer market is classified into devices, implants, disposables, and packaging.

North Americadominated the medical polymers market. The region's growth can be accredited to the increased chronic ailments, accidents, metabolic disorders, infectious disease incidence, etc. Increased clinical urgency has increased the use of medical polymers and has encouraged the development of innovative medical polymers for fast-track use with FDA approvals. In addition, the presence of established pharmaceutical companies, constantly striving for an extensive marketing of their medical polymers and enhancing their geographical reach, is anticipated to be a major factor in the regional market growth. The Asia Pacific market is projected to have the largest CAGR over the forecast period. The existence of a huge target population base, enhanced disposable income and accessibility to drugs, and high unmet clinical needs contribute to the development of the regional industry. Global players are therefore focuing at a relatively low price on heavy investment in R&D and marketing of branded drugs in the region. Due to enhanced medical expenditure and enhanced insurance coverage, Japan retained a significant share in the APAC market in 2017.

Some of the key players in medical polymers market include The Dow Chemical Company, Eastman Chemical Company, Formosa Plastics Corporation USA, Evonik Industries AG, Arkema SA, BASF SE, DSM N.V., Covestro AG, Solvay S.A, and Celanese Corporation, among others.
