The medical grade silicone market is projected to reach USD 7.23 Billion by 2021 at a CAGR of 9.4% between 2016 and 2021. The main objective of the study is to define, describe, and forecast the medical grade silicone market on the basis of product form and application. The report includes detailed information about the major factors influencing the growth of the market (drivers, restraints, opportunities, challenges, and winning imperatives). The report strategically analyzes the market segments with respect to individual growth trends, growth prospects, and contribution to the total market. In the report, the market size is projected for segments, in terms of value and volume, with respect to five major regions (along with the countries), namely, North America, Europe & Central Independent States (CIS), Asia-Pacific, the Middle East Africa, and Latin America.

In the secondary research process, various sources have been referred to for the identification and collection of information for this study. These secondary sources include annual reports, press releases, and investor presentations of companies, white papers & certified publications, Factiva, Bloomberg Businessweek, American Medical Association, World Medical Association, and articles from recognized authors. In the primary research process, sources from both, the supply and demand sides have been interviewed to obtain qualitative and quantitative information. The bottom-up approach has been used to estimate the medical grade silicone market size, in terms of value, on the basis of material, application, and region. The top-down approach has been implemented to validate the market size, in terms of value. Through the data triangulation procedure and validation of data via primary interviews, the exact values of the overall parent market size and individual market sizes have been determined and confirmed in the study.

The figure below provides a break-up of the profile of primary discussion participants.

The market size of medical grade silicone, in terms of value, is projected to reach USD 7.23 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 9.4%, between 2016 and 2021. High-growth application areas such as prosthetics & orthopedic and rapid growth of the global healthcare industry are the key factors driving the growth of the medical grade silicone market.

Medical grade silicones are extremely adaptable to changes in terms of application, property, and state. They can be manufactured with preferred properties, such as rigid solid form to low viscosity liquid form, by varying the chain length and the chemical structure. Silicone gel is increasingly being used in the healthcare industry in medical applications which range from very soft gels for prosthetic and implant applications, to very sticky gels for topical and transdermal wound care applications. Silicone gels are used to help prevent scars in freshly healed wounds and also reduce prominent immature scars.

The medical grade silicone market has been segmented based on different applications such as prosthetics & orthopedic, medical tapes, medical electronics and device assemblies & fittings, medical tubes, catheters, medical accessories & tools, dental, and others. Prosthetics & orthopedic are the largest and fastest-growing application segments for medical grade silicone market. Medical grade silicones are used for manufacturing prosthetics due to their physical properties of chemical inertness, thermal & dimensional stability, elasticity, flexibility, and skin-like texture. Medical grade silicone elastomers have been broadly used in replacement of ailing small joints and other orthopedic components. The first orthopedic medical grade silicone were hand and foot implants.

Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing region for the medical grade silicone market. The developing economies in the region with rapidly growing infrastructure create great opportunity for growth of the medical grade market. China and India are among the fastest-growing economies in the world. Additionally, India is projected to overtake China with the highest growth rate, thus driving the global economy. With such growth rate in these countries, the manufacturing sector is also estimated to record a leap, ultimately boosting the medical grade silicone market in totality. The factors driving the growth of the market in Asia-Pacific include Japan’s growing medical industry, increasing aged population, rising cosmetic & plastic surgeries in India, growing number of cardiovascular diseases, higher domestic demand, along with availability of raw materials & low-cost labor makes this region the most attractive one for the manufacturers. The market in Asia-Pacific, owing to high demand, is much more dynamic and competitive than its western counterparts. These factors are expected to drive the demand for medical grade silicones in Asia-Pacific.

Medical Grade Silicone Market

Although the medical grade silicone market is growing at a significant rate, certain factors could hinder the market growth. The governmental measures to control healthcare cost and lack of investment in product development are restricting the growth of the market to some extent. Stringent and time-consuming regulatory policies are the major challenges for the market

Companies such as Dow Corning (U.S.), Wacker Chemie AG (Germany), Shin-Etsu Chemical Co., Ltd. (Japan), Momentive (U.S.), Bluestar Silicones (France), and 3M Company (U.S.) are the front-runners in the global medical grade silicone market. They have strengthened their market position through diverse product portfolios, strategically positioned R&D centers, consistent strategic development activities, and technological advancements. They have been adopting various organic and inorganic growth strategies, such as expansions, agreements & joint ventures, and new product launches & developments to increase their market share.
