Significant growth in medical businesses around the world is one of the primary factors driving the market's positive outlook. As COVID-19 spreads around the world, the demand for single-use medical plastics and consumables in healthcare facilities has skyrocketed. Thermal scanners, ventilators, gloves, respirators, and masks are commonly used to treat patients in hospitals, diagnostic centers, and clinics. Numerous product developments, such as the development of medical polymers with improved biocompatibility, are also growth-inducing factors. Other factors driving industry growth include extensive improvements in healthcare infrastructure, particularly in developing economies, as well as an increasing geriatric population, which is expected to drive the market even further.


Pollution and increased waste are the factors limiting the industry's growth. The human population is steadily increasing, which increases the demand for plastics. These products are to blame for the continuous increase in plastic production and waste generation, both of which contribute to increased pollution and stifle industry progress. These are typically non-recyclable materials that are individually treated to prevent infection spread. Medical waste that is not properly managed causes a variety of pollution, including water and soil degradation.

Market Trends

Price volatility in Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PP), and Polystyrene (PS) has been exacerbated by fluctuations in oil prices (PS). Price volatility in the market has also been influenced by capacity expansion and contraction. Furthermore, rising overproduction in the Chinese market is expected to have an impact on raw material prices. Furthermore, the market is expected to grow during the forecast period as a result of the enforcement and upgrading of various infection prevention regulations, as well as an increase in the number of surgical, hospital, and outpatient procedures.
