Medical plastics market projected to be worth $88.40 billion by 2030: Grand View Research, Inc.

SAN FRANCISCO, September 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The global medical plastics market is expected to range $88.40 billion by 2030, with a CAGR of 7.5% from 2022 to 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is mainly driven by increasing demand for existing and new medical technologies, aging population and growth of medical device applications. Plastics are increasingly becoming an important part of medical devices because they offer better biocompatibility, optical clarity and are economical to use.

Key industry insights and takeaways from the report:

  • The application of medical components is expected to register the highest CAGR of 8.5% in terms of revenue during the forecast period. The significant CAGR growth is attributed to increasing home healthcare services and growing healthcare spending.
  • Polyphenylsulfone dominated the product segment, accounting for more than 51.0% of the total sales in 2021. This high proportion is attributed to its properties of high chemical and heat resistance and being a suitable material for metal replacement in medical applications.
  • North America accounted for more than 33.0% of total sales in 2021. From 2022 to 2030, a growth rate of 7.8% is expected.

Medical Plastics Market Growth and Trends

Plastics have good chemical resistance, are easy to sterilize and are biocompatible. On the contrary, a very selective number of polymers are used in this segment as medical plastic. There are now several regulatory frameworks around the world that decide which grades of plastics are eligible for medical applications after studying the effect of such plastics after coming into contact with body fluids, internal and external tissues, etc.

New product development, capacity development and acquisitions are the three main strategies companies use to gain market share. From 2019 to 2022, new product development has been observed as the key growth strategy of major medical plastic manufacturers such as SABIC, Solvay SA, Celanese Corporation, Eastman Chemical Company and Dow Inc. In addition, companies such as Solvay SA, Rochling Group, Dow Inc, HMC Polymers and Trelleborg also resorted to capacity expansions to increase their market share and sales.

in the November 2020SABIC introduced new polycarbonate-based CRX copolymer resins at BIOMEDigital 2020. This new product innovation aims to reduce premature failure from environmental stress cracking (ESC) in medical device housings and devices.

The market also saw numerous acquisitions by large players. For example, Nolato AB acquired GW Plastics Inc Sept 2020acquired Saint-Gobain Life Sciences MS Techniques and Transluminal in Sept 2020Tekni-Plex Healthcare acquired precision extrusion manufacturer Johnson Plastic Group in October 2021Proxy Biomedical Ltd and Aran Biomedical were acquired by Integer Holdings April 2022.
