Report Highlights

The U.S. medical plastics market totaled nearly 4.4 billion pounds in 2014. This market should reach nearly 4.6 billion pounds in 2015 and 5.8 billion pounds by 2020 increasing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.8% between 2015 and 2020.

Report Includes

  • An overview of the global markets for medical plastics with detailed coverage of North American markets, and broad-based estimates for European and Asian regions.
  • Analyses of the market trends, with data from 2014, estimates for 2015, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2020.
  • Information on new medical devices, new products, technologies related to medical devices, sterilization techniques, and medical plastic product lines.
  • Examination of the market's dynamics, including growth drivers, restraints, and opportunities.
  • Evaluation of the environmental, and legislative and regulatory impacts on the market.
  • Comprehensive profiles of major players in the medical plastics industry.

SCOPE OF REPORT

This report will be somewhat different from many other studies in which the focus was on materials such as resins and elastomers. This report will initially treat the medical device industry, itself, and industry and market information will be updated and definitive and detailed estimates and forecasts of the U.S. market will be provided, followed by a detailed analysis of the key resins used to make these devices.

The ever-changing face of the medical device industry, new types of medical devices legislative/regulatory and environmental issues, new products and technologies related to medical devices, sterilization techniques and impact on polymer selection, polymer usage in medical devices, status of PVC, and medical plastic’s product lines and trade-named products along the recent introduction of 3-D printing are some of the topics that are covered.

It needs to be reiterated that several specific “medical devices” such as syringes, trays, tubing and kits are considered by many to be an integral part of the “medical packaging” market. For example, prefilled syringes are now the dominant types, as opposed to those filled at hospitals and/or physician’s offices. Kits and trays are also used to prepackage other medical devices, all of which will be covered in the report.
