Executive Summary
•In 2011, volume for the U.S. market for plastics in medical devices was estimated at xx billion pounds and revenue was $xx billion.
•Commodity thermoplastics, the most commonly used materials in medical devices, include polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene (PE), polystyrene (PS), polypropylene (PP), and polycarbonate (PC). Commodity thermoplastics dominate the market, followed by thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs), engineering resins, and thermosets.
•Plastics currently form one of the most important components of the medical industry. Medical device designers and engineers increasingly prefer plastic to conventional materials, such as metal and glass, because of its superior flexibility in the fabrication process.
•Volume for the U.S. medical device market is expected to reach xx million by 2018 at a xpercent compound annual growth rate (CAGR).
•Asia-Pacific constitutes the fastest growing market for medical plastics globally.
•The medical plastics market is projected to grow rapidly, particularly in developing regions, such as Asia-Pacific and Latin America. This growth is driven by a gradual increase in demand for sophisticated medical devices and enhanced medical care.
•China has modernized and improved its healthcare system, which has allowed medical device firms in the country to increase their global competitiveness, especially with the United States, the world’s leading medical plastics producer. Some plastics companies in the United States involved in the processing and design of medical devices are looking to take advantage of these industry changes.
•The healthcare market is less affected by changes in the economy than others are, and this allows for growth in the medical plastics market.
•The factors generating greater demand for medical plastics include reductions in healthcare costs; advancements in sterilization techniques; technological innovations; and the use of disposable medical supplies. Also, materials with improved properties that meet infection-control standards are in development.
•Additionally, the development of novel materials, such as biocompatible polymers for medical implants, will address the environmental concern that is prevalent in the global medical plastics market.
