Global Medical Polymers Market Estimated To Register CAGR Of 13% By 2022

Medical Polymers Market is expected to reach US$19,014 mln by 2022, growing at an estimated CAGR of 13% from 2016 to 2022, according to a report by Allied Market Research. Resins is the leading segment in 2015 and is expected to maintain its lead throughout the forecast period. Further, in the application segment, devices dominate occupying a share of nearly half of the global medical polymers market.

Medical polymers are widely used across various applications, as they are easy to manufacture and facilitate customizations. Moreover, they provide ease of fabrication, flexibility, and biocompatibility, and remarkable mechanical, electrical, chemical, and thermal properties of materials that are used as composites for medical implants. Increasing number of medical procedures, such as joint reconstruction & heart surgeries and rise in cosmetic and plastic surgeries in the developing countries are the few other key drivers of the market.

“Increase in adoption of medical polymers owing to low prices and versatility, coupled with increase in the sales of medical implants and devices globally will garner the growth of the global medical polymer market”, said Eswara Prasad. Resins dominate the medical ceramics market due to a significant replacement trend of conventional medical devices materials with advanced polymers such as polyphenylene ether and few others, which provide highquality medical devices. Further the application segment is led by devices holding nearly half of the global polymers market. This is mainly due to advancement in the technology provided by the polymers manufacturers such as polymer laminate technology and so on. Devices captured a major share in the global medical polymers market followed by disposables such as gloves, syringes and others.
