Polymer material in medical technology

Research And Markets : 20 January, 2014  (New Product)
Medical polymers, resins and fibres are in focus in a market research report containing forecasts to 2018


Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "2013 Report on the International Medical Polymers, Resins And Fibers, Elastomers & Biodegradable Plastics Market - Trends & Forecast to 2018" report to their offering.



 Medical devices, implants and equipment are used extensively and the demand for medical polymers is thus increasing due to their biocompatibility in these applications. Medical polymers are usually used in spinal implants, hip & joint replacements and implants for cranial injuries. Growing demand for medical devices, an increasing ageing populations and a growing preference towards home healthcare treatment are some of the factors that have been driving the market in the past few years.



Fibers and resins such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE), polystyrene (PS) and others such as Nylon, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and other polyamides (PA) are major materials used in medical applications. Of these PVC and PP are expected to show the highest demand while the demand for others is expected to grow at a rapid pace. Similarly, elastomers such as styrene block copolymers (SBCs), rubber latex and others (TPO, TPU and TPV) are in great demand as well.



The report can be purchased directly from the Research and Markets website here: "2013 Report on the International Medical Polymers, Resins And Fibers, Elastomers & Biodegradable Plastics Market - Trends & Forecast to 2018"
