Medical Polymers Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2012 – 2018

Medical Polymers Market
Several polymers, on account of versatility offered by them, are used in the medical field and are termed as medical polymers. Medical polymers have various applications in the field dentistry and medicine such as in prosthetic implants, tissue engineering and drug delivery. Since these materials are used in medicine, they need strong adherence to high manufacturing standards. The market for medical polymers, on the basis of nature of materials, is segmented as fibers, resins, elastomers and other nonbiodegradable or biodegradable polymers. Medical fibers and resins include polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE), polystyrene (PS), polyamide (PA), polytetrafluoroethylene (PFTE), polyvinyl alcohol (PVA), polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and others.

Medical elastomers include, polyurethane, natural rubber latex, silicone rubber, butyl rubber and thermoplastic elastomers. Biodegradable polymers used in medical field include polycaprolactone, polylactic acid, polycarbonate, polyhydroxyalkanoates, polyphosphate, polybutylene succinate, etc. Some of the factors which drive the medical polymers market are technological advances in the field of healthcare, rising demand for low weigh medical devices and increasing health awareness in developing nations. The non-biodegradable nature of plastics and medical waste management are the two major concerns which restrain the medical polymers market.

North America leads the global medical polymers market in terms of revenues and is closely followed by Europe. The Asia-Pacific market is the fastest growing segment in this industry owing to the increasing healthcare expenditures and huge patient pool. The applications for medical polymers include cardiovascular system, tissue engineering, medical packing and medical devices. The novel application of medical polymers in the prosthetic implants is a strong opportunity that can be leveraged by large companies investing in R&D and intellectual property.
