NanoMarkets has a released a new report on global medical polymer market, which represents a key opportunity in the medical materials market over the next eight years. This market growth is attributed to several factors; the aging population in developed nations might be the major factor, expanding the addressable market for polymer implants. In fact, many polymer implants are mainly intended to help the elderly population.
Opportunities in the medical polymers market has also increased significantly as the latest technical developments in medical polymers can perfect implant capabilities, allow enhanced fits for implants, and improve biocompatibility. Polymer structures can also serve as alternatives to cartilage or allow doctors to grow a patient’s tissue for transplants.
Additionally, the new legal protections that followed the debacle of silicone breast implant have significantly reduced the risk in the medical polymer scenario. These factors combined with plenty of M&A activity and new start ups have considerably expanded the medical polymer market.
NanoMarkets’ report identifies both existing and future opportunities in the medical polymers market and provides guidance on the regulatory and technical framework in which these opportunities are emerging. The report includes a granular eight-year forecast and examines the entire supply chain for medical polymers.
In addition, the report profiles key suppliers and discusses their marketing strategies, needs, strengths, and weaknesses. It also analyzes the market for medical polymers in various country-specific markets.
Some of the key highlights in the report include national markets, applications and commercial trends in medical polymers, as well as a detailed analysis of the changing dynamics of polymer manufacturers.
