Key Growth Drivers

  • The medical polymer market is driven by surging chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, stroke, and other infectious viruses. According to World Health Organization, stated that nearly 10 million deaths in 2020 are caused by cancer worldwide, the most common cases of cancer were lung, prostate, skin, stomach, colon, and rectum. Globally, more than two third of all death are occurred due to one or more of these five chronic diseases including heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases. The increasing number of cases due to chronic diseases worldwide, enforcing governments and players to upgrade technology via medical devices or surgeries to cure the disease, which is likely to benefit the medical polymer market.
  • Government strict rules and restrictions on the usage of polymer material in the healthcare and medical industry, are restraining the growth of the medical polymer market. For instance, the USA Food and Drugs Administration (FDA), stated that numerous types of materials, including metals, polymers, and ceramics, are commonly used in medical devices. FDA is taking active measures to control the quality of raw materials used in medical devices.
  • COVID-19 has helped in the growth of the medical polymer market. Since the start of the pandemic, the requirement for medicines and other medical products has been rising, it requires special packaging, which helped the medical polymer market to accelerate. As the pandemic is slowing down, it is estimated that the medical polymer market remains significant in the forecasted period, owing to the growing medical conditions and surgeries worldwide.

Key Trends by Market Segment:

By Product: Fibers & resins segment held the largest market share of the global medical polymer market in 2021, owing to its extensive usage in various applications.

  • Fibers & resins include multiple sub-segments including polypropylene, polyethylene, polystyrene, and others. Polycarbonate polymer provides high chemical and electrical resistance, which assists them to replace metal and glass in medical products.
  • Increased usage of resins in numerous medical applications such as spinal implants, cranial injuries, hip, and joint replacements, and others.
