Medical grade silicone is biocompatible with living tissues and is widely used in medical devices such as in prosthetics, catheter in cardiology, and others. It has gained a widespread acceptance owing to its less toxicity, hydrophobic properties, and low risk of unfavorable biological reactions. It has a wide scope of application in prosthetics, medical tapes, medical adhesives, and others.
The increasing prevalence of trauma injuries, osteoporosis, and cardiovascular diseases is a major factor driving the medical grade silicone market growth. According to World Health Organization (WHO) factsheet 2018, annually, there are around 37.3 million falls, which require medical attention, whereas an estimated 646,000 individuals die annually from falls globally. Moreover, advantages of medical grade silicone are expected to boost the market growth. Medical grade silicone are used in implants and disposable medical devices, which are less toxic and cause less problem when compared to metallic or other form of implants.
Elastomers are the most extensively used medical grade silicone and accounted for significant market share in the year 2021. The demand is fuelled by the salient properties offered by the polymers, including hypoallergenic, non-reactivity with most chemicals, high tear strength, exceptional thermal conductivity, and excellent fire resistance. Liquid silicone rubber (LSR) and high consistency rubber (HCR) elastomers are used to manufacture medical tubing, devices, and components. However, the demand for liquid silicone rubber in moulding applications is anticipated to witness significant growth as a result of low viscosity aiding the growth of intricate and complex molds over HCR.
Increasing expenditure and a greater focus on healthcare, rising construction of hospitals & clinics, and growing establishment of public health insurance are factors anticipated to augment the demand for silicone in the medical devices market in developing countries such as China, India, Thailand, Malaysia, and others. The growing aging population coupled with the rising income levels in developing countries is projected to fuel the growth of healthcare infrastructure. Furthermore, the global harmonization of standards and regulatory requirements is anticipated to help facilitate the overall growth of medical grade silicone market.
