Shift towards minimally invasive medical procedures is fueling the medical plastics market

The market size of medical plastics is expected to reach USD 21.06 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 7.3% between 2017 and 2022. Medical plastics have are lightweight and cost-effective and possess properties such as durability, transparency, barrier properties, and compatibility with other materials. However, government control over healthcare costs may restrain the growth of medical plastics, especially in emerging economies.

Implants is expected to be the fastest growing application segment of the medical plastics market during the forecast period

An implant is a medical device that is manufactured to replace a missing natural structure, support a damaged biological structure, or enhance an existing biological structure. The surface of the implants that are in contact with the body might be made of a biomedical material such as titanium, silicone, or apatite depending on what is most functional. The rise in aging population and technological developments are driving the medical plastics market for implants. The implants segment in Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at a high rate over the next few years due to developing healthcare infrastructures, increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, and rising disposable income.

Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing market for medical plastics during the forecast period
     
Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing market for medical plastics during the forecast period, owing to the increasing demand for medical devices from the aging population. Factors driving the growth of the medical plastics market in Asia-Pacific include Japan’s growing medical industry, increasing aging population, rising cosmetic and plastic surgeries in India, increasing cases of cardiovascular diseases, higher domestic demand, availability of raw materials, and cheap labor. The market in Asia-Pacific is more dynamic and competitive than other regions. These factors are expected to drive the demand for medical plastics in the region during the forecast period.
