Medical polymers are widely used across various applications, as they are easy to manufacture and facilitate customizations. Moreover, they provide ease of fabrication, flexibility, and biocompatibility, and remarkable mechanical, electrical, chemical, and thermal properties of materials that are used as composites for medical implants. Increasing number of medical procedures, such as joint reconstruction & heart surgeries and rise in cosmetic and plastic surgeries in the developing countries are the few other key drivers of the market.
"Increase in adoption of medical polymers owing to low prices and versatility, coupled with increase in the sales of medical implants and devices globally will garner the growth of the global medical polymer market", said Eswara Prasad
Resins dominate the medical ceramics market due to a significant replacement trend of conventional medical devices materials with advanced polymers such as polyphenylene ether and few others, which provide high-quality medical devices. Further the application segment is led by devices holding nearly half of the global polymers market. This is mainly due to advancement in the technology provided by the polymers manufacturers such as polymer laminate technology and so on. Devices captured a major share in the global medical polymers market followed by disposables such as gloves, syringes and others.
