The global medical tubing market is segmented into material, structure, applications, and region.
On the basis of the material, the global medical tubing market is segmented into plastic, rubber, and metal. Among these, the plastic is sub-segmented into polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polyether ether ketone (PEEK), polyamide, polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), perfluoroalkoxy (PFA), fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP), polycarbonate (PC), bioabsorbable polymers, polyester, polylactic acid (PLA), ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA). The Rubber is further segmented into silicone, thermoplastic elastomer, and polyurethane. The metal is sub-segmented into titanium, steel, aluminum, and others. A plastic material such as PVC, FEP & PTFE is used majorly in the manufacturing of medical tubes owing to lubricity and biocompatibility. PVC is widely used as a result of low cost and equivalent functional properties. Silicone is being increasingly used due to good resistance to extreme temperature, high level of purity, and good resilience.
Based on the structure, the market is segregated into single-lumen, multi-lumen, co-extruded, tapered or bump, braided, balloon, heat shrink, high-pressure, thin-walled, coiled, microextrusion. These medical tubings are used in different applications according to different specifications. Microextrusion tubing is widely used in the neurological and surgical applications.
On the basis of the application, the market is divided into bulk disposable tubing, draining blood, catheters & cannulas, drug delivery systems, and special applications. Among these, bulk disposable tubing is sub-segmented into dialysis & intravenous. Catheters are sub-segmented into cardiovascular, intravenous, and urinary catheters. Special applications are sub-segmented into a peristaltic pump, gas supply, smoke evacuation, and feeding tubes. Drug delivery system is the fastest growing application in the market due to its use in controlled release of therapeutic agents. The product is vastly used in endoscopes, fluid management, bypass procedures, wound drainage, and catheters.
