Liquid Silicone Segment: Major Pushing Factor For Global Medical Grade Silicone Market Size


 Growing demand from numerous applications such as catheters, disposables, surgical instruments, prosthetics, and implants is improving the market growth. It has been witnessed over the years that the liquid silicone rubber product dominates the market. Increasing global healthcare expenditure is estimated to create huge opportunities for medical-grade silicone rubber in the upcoming years. As per the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, healthcare spending in the country is expected to observe a growth rate of 5.7% from 2020 to 2027.

According to Data Bridge Market Research, the Global Medical Grade Silicone Market will witness a CAGR of 6.40% for 2022-2029.

"Increasing Demand of Liquid Silicone Rubber Product Surge the Market Growth"

The liquid silicone rubber product enhances the market's growing rapidly. Medical grade liquid silicone rubbers consist of bio-inert material that obeys standards such as ISO 10993, USP Class VI, and RoHS. It can be sterilized, flexible, and self-adhesive. In addition to this, it has huge stability and water repellence. Medical devices manufactured using medical-grade liquid silicone rubber (LSR) help to increase longevity as it minimizes pain and is also extensively used in making artificial joints and pacemakers. Thus, this factor boosts market growth.    

What restraints the growth of the Global Medical Grade Silicone Market?

"Strict Regulations Associated with Medical Grade Silicones"

Several stringent regulations hamper the market growth. Medical-grade silicone rubber usage is regulated by many agencies globally. Manufacturers are required to obey stringent regulations to maintain their market position. For instance, the Federal Food Drug and Cosmetic Act Regulation, mentioned in Chapter 5 of the act, governs medical devices in the U.S. These major factors impede the growth of the market.
