Key Market Trends

Healthcare Industry Driving demand for PC Market

  • Traditionally, natural rubber and glass were used for medical devices, which required re-sterilization and cleaning for repeated usage. However, with advancements in the medical device market, manufacturers have started replacing conventional materials with high-performance plastics, such as PVC.
  • The high-performance, low-cost PVC materials have made it possible to manufacture present day single-use devices, such as tubes, containers, and syringes. This material has minimized the risk of life-threatening infections that spread through unsterilized medical devices.
  • Presently, about 40% of all the medical devices are made from PVC; it is the only material that guarantees performance and quality demanded by medical professionals and regulatory bodies.
  • In the medical devices market, PVC is primarily used for flexible tubing and containers, which are used for blood donation sets and components for urine products. Such similar factors are driving the South American PVC market.
