Medical Tubing Market is expected to get evaluated colossally at a modest CAGR during the review period of 2017-2023. Medical tubing is widely used in medical or pharmaceutical related applications. It is made of plastic, rubber or metal material. Furthermore, the medical tubing finds applications in bulk disposable tubing, catheters & cannulas, draining blood, peristaltic pump, and drug delivery system among others. It is majorly manufactured using plastic material, but with technological advancements, silicone rubber is being increasingly used owing to its extreme temperature resistance properties.
The global medical tubing market growth is driven by expanding medical industry in both developed and developing regions. Increasing spending on healthcare coupled with rising health awareness and growing geriatric population is driving the market globally. The product demand is escalating in surgical implants owing to biocompatibility and lubricity. Increasing instances of non-invasive medical procedures for treatment is further propelling the market growth in developing nations such as India and China. Moreover, increasing demand from technically advanced medical devices to meet various neurological and surgical applications is uplifting the medical tubing demand. For instance, RAUMEDIC’S intracranial brain pressure catheter (IPC) made using single lumen tubing is embedded with a microchip which measures brain pressure and temperature & oxygen level.
