Technology continues to optimize and improve the application of plastics in the medical industry

due to the flexible production of plastics, medical device manufacturers are gradually replacing traditional production materials such as metal and glass with plastics. At present, the market relies heavily on daily-use polymers. With the development of technology optimization and the application of different types of polymers, this will accelerate the application of plastics in medical equipment. Technology continues to optimize and improve the application of plastics in the medical industry

compared with other industries, the medical and health care industry is less affected by the economy, which makes the demand for medical plastics continue to rise. Due to the increasing overseas investment in the development of medical technology, the market is in the growth stage and is expected to continue to grow. In 2013, the sales volume of medical plastics in the Asia Pacific region reached 62000 tons, and its compound annual growth rate is expected to reach 3.8% from 2013 to 2017. By 2017, the sales volume will increase to 76000 tons. Southeast Asia is the region that mainly drives the overall profit growth. In 2013, the revenue of Australia and New Zealand accounted for 36.4% of the Asia Pacific region and 63.4% of Southeast Asia

the development of Australia and New Zealand is better, and both domestic and export markets will bring high added value. The Southeast Asian market is still in its infancy and needs to import medical equipment from Europe, America and China. However, with the increase of the domestic medical equipment market and the availability of experiments and test data according to GB, ISO, JIS, ASTM, DIN and other international standards, foreign investment and exports will increase, which will promote the consumption of raw materials in Southeast Asia

in the Asia Pacific market, PVC still accounts for an important proportion, accounting for 32.5% of the total revenue in 2013. This is because the region produces a large number of disposable medical supplies, especially in Southeast Asia. Due to its low price, good thermal stability and easy processability, PVC is the preferred raw material, which is mostly used in the production of medical gloves and infusion equipment

polypropylene is the second choice in the market, because it has high transparency, high temperature resistance and few allergies. In 2013, polypropylene accounted for 27.5% of the total revenue and was widely used in the production of input equipment such as syringes. The application of polyethylene is relatively smaller than that of polypropylene. It is more used for pharmaceutical packaging, accounting for 8.1% of the total revenue with large volume changes. Other polymers are used for more specific applications, such as radiation resistors

according to the classification of polymer types, PVC, as a common material, is widely used in the production of disposable medical products, such as infusion bags and infusion tubes. Its demand is still growing, but the growth rate is lower than polyolefin. Polypropylene is mainly used in the production of neutral syringes equipped with the most widely used conventional plastic granulators, which will expand its market share in other disposable medical plastics. As a substitute for PVC, the demand for polyethylene will also increase. From the perspective of sales channels, direct selling is the most important sales method, accounting for 75%, while pharmaceutical companies and distributors account for 5% and 25% respectively

it is expected that the economic growth of Southeast Asian countries will be strong, and the consumption of health care will double. With the aging of the population and the increase of the population, it will promote the investment in the industry of medical equipment that can make the body lose heat. Policies and regulations for the health care industry are also increasingly standardized. With the increase of costs and attention to health care, the quality of medical devices has become particularly important. With economic growth, Asian countries are increasing investment in the health care market. The per capita health care consumption level in the Asia Pacific region is far lower than that in North America and Europe, but as countries increasingly attach importance to national health and happiness satisfaction, per capita health care consumption is increasing
