Acumen Research and Consulting recently released the report titled “Medical Polyethylene Market – Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Opportunities and Forecast 2022 – 2030”

TOKYO, June 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Global Medical Polyethylene Market Accounted for $5.246 billion in 2021, it is expected to reach $8.921 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period from 2022 to 2030.

According to the researchers, global polyethylene (PE) manufacturing capacity is expected to increase substantially in the coming years, reaching 156 million tonnes. In addition, global polyethylene capacity is expected to increase significantly, led by Asia Pacific and North America. However, PE will remain the most commonly used thermoplastic polymer globally due to its versatility, low cost, ease of processing and recyclability. These factors will increase the adoption of PE in the healthcare sector, which will be driven by increased consumption and manufacturing activities in the healthcare sector. Additionally, compared to other materials in the medical industry, PE may be a more convenient solution for patients and healthcare professionals, while still offering the durability required in higher situations. Recently, the application of PE in the healthcare industry has become an important factor in creativity and development. Additionally, PE in medical applications offers medical professionals and innovative drug designers a number of competitive advantages.

Global Medical Polyethylene Market Growth Aspects

The increasing use of PP in the production of medical diagnostic equipment, pans, containers, implantable assays, trays, syringes, and other medical devices is expected to drive market growth. Polypropylene is expected to witness significant growth in medical component applications due to its light weight, high chemical and bacterial resistance, and low production costs. Additionally, medical disposables are becoming more popular as the demand for home healthcare grows. This factor is accelerating the growth of the medical polyethylene market. Disposable medical supplies include syringes, surgical gloves, catheters and health care fabrics. These disposables are simple and convenient to use. The medical polyethylene industry has a large market owing to the increasing demand for home remedies.

Polyethylene will also have a cost advantage over other plastic resins due to growing ethylene biomass resources from alternative sources such as coal, shale gas and bio-based materials. Furthermore, continuous technological innovations in improved polymerization catalysts will enhance the performance, customization, and yield of polyethylene resins, propelling the market forward. In addition to this, polyethylene’s very competitive and mature position will limit future growth. In addition, major polyethylene applications, such as rope, are increasingly subject to environmental constraints.
