Key Market Trends

Healthcare Industry to Dominate the Market

  • The global PEEK market in the healthcare industry is expected to grow at a good rate, because of its increasing medical applications, due to its columnar stiffness, biocompatibility, and torsion strength in very thin walls.
  • Healthcare is the fastest-growing sector in the global PEEK market, as it is quite established in developed countries, like the United States, etc., and also with growing penetration in emerging economies, like India and ASEAN countries, due to the ongoing urbanization.
  • Medical grade PEEK is used in orthopedics, sterilization cases and trays, medical and dental devices, hemodialysis membranes, etc. Orthopedics occupy the largest share, in terms of consumption.
  • Many medical device manufacturers now use implantable PEEK, as a way to improve the biocompatibility of load-bearing implants. It makes implants much more bone-friendly and more compatible with diagnostic imaging than metal implants.
  • Currently, PEEK is increasingly becoming the new standard biomaterial, across a wide range of implant applications.
  • There is a growing interest in the potential benefits of enhancing the Osseo-conductivity of PEEK with coatings, to provide direct bone on-growth by integrating calcium phosphate and hydroxyapatite within the PEEK polymeric base.
  • The increasing applications of PEEK in the healthcare industry are further projected to drive the market, during the forecast period.

North America to Dominate the Market

  • North America dominated the global market with the United States accounting for the largest consumption.
  • The US PEEK market is expected to grow at a good rate, because of growing end-user industries, like automotive, aerospace, electrical and electronics, etc., which is expected to drive the PEEK market.
  • Automotive is one of the major industries in the United States. The country showed strong demand for automotive with lightweight car production reaching 12 million units, and further, it is expected to increase during the forecast period. This is expected to add to the demand for PEEK in the country.
  • Furthermore, the electrical and electronics market in the United States is driven by continuous R&D and investment for innovative products. Also, in the United States, consumer electronics has a huge market, and it is expected to register a good growth rate, because of increasing demand for tablets, smartphone, smart drones, and headsets, which is expected to drive the PEEK market.
  • Furthermore, the matured aerospace industry boomed, due to growing profits and sales, in recent years. The US defense sector has increased defense spending for equipment, such as planes, etc., which is projected to drive the market for PEEK products in the country, thus, increasing the market in the North America region.
