The global medical polymer market size is expected to reach USD 36.77 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 8.0%, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The industry is expected to register growth due to the high adoption of polymers in implants on account of their chemical inertness and superior fatigue resistance. The demand for medical device packaging is likely to be driven by the rise in the demand for in-house and advanced medical devices.
In addition, a high level of consumer expenditure on healthcare, primarily in the U.S., China, and Germany, is expected to drive the application segment in the forthcoming years. Moreover, rising positive coronavirus cases across the globe are positively influencing the demand for medical devices, thereby propelling the demand for medical polymers.
Raw materials used for medical polymers include ethylene, propylene, caprolactam, corn starch, and silica stone (SiO2). Silica stone is the most significant component found in the Earth's crust and is derived from sand mining and the purification of quartz. It is used in the production of silicone elastomers, which are widely used in the medical industry. Corn starch is used in the production of biodegradable polymers such as polylactic acid (PLA) and polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA).
