Medical Plastics Market - Overview

Medical plastics are light weight, biocompatible materials that are used for the fabrication of medical devices.Rise in demand for quality and safety of medical devices at a reasonable cost is fuelling the demand for medical plastics.

Government regulations compel the medical sector to opt for environment friendly, biocompatible, and clean materials to meet functionality, manufacturability, and safety requirements of medical devices.Devices manufactured by using medical plastics are durable, flexible, and cost effective.

Medical devices manufactured from medical plastics are employed in various applications such as surgical instruments, implants, disposables, syringes, diagnostic instruments, drug delivery devices, and catheters.

Shift in demand for disposable devices from North America and Europe to Asia Pacific is the key factor driving the market.Increase in demand for unique designs for medical parts, tools, and equipment has augmented the requirement of fabrication processes that can handle the complexity of designs.

These designs also need to meet the cleanliness requirements of health care applications.This makes injection molding an ideal choice for the manufacture of medical devices, as the injection molding process meets quality standards.

Thus, recent advancements in injection molding is boosting the medical plastics market.Low manufacturing costs and durability are prominent factors augmenting the medical plastics market.

Metal and glass equipment are more prone to corrosion; however, medical plastics offer a reliable solution over other equipment. Furthermore, these plastics have longer shelf life and do not have breaking ability. This makes them viable options over metal and glass.

In terms of type, the global medical plastics market has been classified into PVC, PE, PP, PS, engineering plastics, silicone, and others (including biopolymers and polyamides).PVC dominates the global medical plastics market.
