Global Medical Tubing Market Overview

The estimated projections for the medical tubing market size are expected to rise at USD 14.37 billion by 2028, incorporating a CAGR of 9.14% during the forecast of the medical tubing market share. The Valuation of the medical tubing market is held to be at USD 9.25 billion in 2021.

Medical tubing is an essential component for both the pharmaceutical and medical industries & the medical tubing market has a huge potential. Components that include medical tubing consist of plastic, rubber, or metal. Since the medical tubing market value revenue is not just a number but there is a huge usage & hence medical tubing market value is on a significant rise it is significant to know the use of medical tubing. Disposable catheters, Cannula & tubing are the byproducts that are born with the help of medical tubing. Drug delivery systems, peristaltic pumps & blood draining are the areas to build a presence in. There is a plastic version of it commonly used in medical and pharma equipment. Medical tubing market participants, however, have been engaged in vigorous research and development. The result of the R&D is building metal tubing out of silicone rubber to make it more flexible and attain a much more efficient way of developing metal tubing.

COVID 19 Analysis

With the advent of Covid-19, the devastation was mammoth and freighting due to which many houses lost their loved ones. As a precaution the governments had imposed quarantine, social distancing norms, and lockdowns in due time intervals but that too has its limitations. But the price was paid by companies, small business owners, and industries including the medical tubing industry, many had to shut down their businesses, a few temporarily stopped it & some had to scale back operations. The exorbitant cost & fabrication of raw materials in the Medical Tubing market value resulting in companies passing on the cost to customers in order to cope up.

Market Dynamics


However, the medical and pharma industries are booming because of the developed & developing nations and that is due to the increase in the purchase of medical & health care by government and citizens in general. Medical Tubing Market Value is hence witnessing growth.

However, the other accommodating factor to the inflammable growth of this sector is that as people get older they need more nursing & medical care and people contributing to the world of fitness and becoming aware of their health.

Lubrication facilitates the insertion of these products. Implant manufacturers are therefore inclined to use it.


A huge obstacle in the Medical Tubing Market is that it is expensive to manufacture.

Technology Analysis

As the medical tubing industry requires intensive research and development, one American giant that is upscaling in this game with a sustainable competitive edge and a superior market is Teleflex. The company has invested in the manufacture and eventually marketing of safe and advanced medical tubing with impeccable features as compared to the previous versions.

Segment Overview

Based on Metal Tubing Segments 

Plastic, Rubber, and Metal are the subdivision of the metal tubing segments.

Plaster is further classified and subdivided into Polyvinyl Chloride, Polyethylene, Polypropylene, Polyether Ketone, Poly-amide, Polytetrafluoroethylene, Perfluoroalkoxy, Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene, Polycarbonate, Bioabsorbable Polymers, Polyester, Polylactic Acid, and Ethylene-vinyl Acetate.

The rubber on the other hand is broken down into Silicone, Thermoplastic, Elastomer, and Polyurethane.

Based on application

Based on their applications, this market can be divided into bulk disposable tubes, blood draining tubes, catheters and Cannula, and drug delivery systems. Additionally, bulk disposable tubing is further split into Dialysis and Intravenous.

Catheters and Cannula are also classified based on their cardiovascular, intravenous, and urinary applications.

Peristaltic pump, gas supply, smoke evacuation and feeding tubes constitute the subdivision of special applications.

Based on Elements 

There are a few different types of metals, including titanium, steel, aluminum, etc.

The different types of metal tubing include single-lumen, multi-lumen, co-extruded, tapered or bump, braided, balloon, heat shrink, thin-walled, coiled, and micro extruded tubing.

Regional Analysis

The vast Medical Tubing market is regionally spread out into North America, the European Union, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and African region.

The market share is dominated by the North American region because the spending on healthcare is enormous by both the governments of Canada and America.  Also, both the nation’s private and public firms in the insurance and medical sector are known to spend generously on healthcare. Also, the concentration of the elderly is growing at an alarming rate in both nations. In the entire globe, America and Canada both have the most prosperous aging populations due to social security payments by the government.

The Market Share in 2015 was dominated by America alone with a 40% share and the market Value was USD 140 billion in America in 2015.

The European Union is being taken off by robotic surgery & robotic-assisted surgery because of the minimized pain with these endoscopic techniques leading to remarkable and respectable growth in the Medical Tubing Market. Also, a trend of Europeans is that they tend to be interested in taking care of their severe and chronic illnesses like diabetes and incontinence at their homes so they love to do their self-care with easy & simple products as with the aging populations’ mindsets.

The rapidly accelerating market growth is the Asia-Pacific region especially India and China, partially because of the widespread expansion of Healthcare in these regions. This is primarily because of the multiplying middle-class population in India and China and hence the demand for minimally invasive techniques has risen with the advancement of efficient medical devices.

The Medical Tubing Market Growth is expected to surge in the Latin-American region due to the ubiquity of non-surgical and surgical products for cosmetic procedures. The demand is estimated to grow amongst the middle class. Brazil and Mexico are also catching up on the growth of this market.

The Medical Tubing Market Growth is expected to be driven in the Middle East and Africa by the increasing healthcare industry in the middle-class region. In developing countries, diseases like obesity are on the rise as they become wealthier.

Competitive Landscape

This market stands to be highly intense and the market is highly profitable for companies to invest in as it is not easy to enter this market due to some inevitable barriers and this acts as a driving force. Research and development investment, mergers and acquisitions, and strategic partnerships are vital for corporations to survive.

Recent Developments

June 2023: A team of researchers at the University of California, San Diego, developed a new type of medical tubing that is made from graphene. The tubing is highly flexible and strong, and it can withstand harsh environments. It is also biocompatible, so it can be used in the body without causing any adverse reactions.

May 2023: A company called Vascular Flow Technologies announced the development of a new type of medical tubing that is designed to improve the delivery of blood flow. The tubing is made from a material that is more elastic than traditional tubing, and it has a smooth inner surface that helps to reduce friction. This results in a more efficient delivery of blood flow, which can improve patient outcomes.

April 2023: A team of researchers at the University of Texas at Austin developed a new type of medical tubing that is made from a self-healing polymer. The tubing can repair itself if it is damaged, which makes it more durable and reliable. This could be a valuable asset in applications where the tubing is exposed to harsh environments or where it is likely to be damaged.
