Driving Factors

Europe has a well-developed healthcare system with significant investment in healthcare infrastructure and services. The region's increasing healthcare expenditure, driven by factors such as population aging, advancements in medical technologies, and government initiatives, contributes to the demand for medical plastics. Moreover, the demand for medical devices continues to rise in Europe, driven by factors such as an aging population, the prevalence of chronic diseases, and technological advancements. Medical plastics are essential components of medical devices due to their lightweight, durable, and biocompatible properties. The expanding medical device industry fuels the demand for medical plastics in Europe.


Restraining Factors

The medical plastics industry in Europe is subject to stringent regulations and standards to ensure patient safety and product efficacy. Compliance with these regulations, such as the European Union's Medical Devices Regulation (MDR) and In Vitro, Diagnostic Medical Devices Regulation (IVDR), can be time-consuming and costly for manufacturers. Meeting the regulatory requirements adds complexity and may act as a restraint for some market players.


COVID-19 Impacts 

Italy has been impacted the most by the COVID-19 epidemic in Europe. It is projected to suffer economic damage owing to a lack of revenue from numerous companies, as Italy has the most significant number of COVID-19 cases. Other member nations have taken dramatic measures and imposed travel restrictions, temporarily shutting their borders. This is expected to influence market growth in Europe.


Market Segment

  • In 2022, the Polyphenylsulfone segment is expected to have the highest growth in the market over the forecast period.

Based on the product, the Europe medical plastic market is segmented into polyethylene, polycarbonate, liquid crystal polymer, polyethylenimine, polymethyl methacrylate, and others. Among these segments, the Polyphenylsulfone segment dominates the largest market share during the forecast period. Polyphenylsulfone has strong heat and chemical resistance, making it appropriate for metal substitution in medical applications. These polymers have great flexural strength, impact resistance, and durability, making them ideal for the manufacture of single- and multi-use surgical tools. Its great temperature tolerance makes it useful for medical devices that must be frequently steam-sterilized. These materials are rapidly being employed in surgical robotics and biopharmaceutical manufacturing.


  • In 2022, the medical disposables segment is influencing the highest market share during the forecast period.

Based on the application, the Europe medical plastic market is segmented into medical disposables, prosthetics, medical instruments & tools, drug delivery, and others. Among these segments, medical disposables led the market during the forecast period, due to their adaptability, medical plastics are becoming more popular. Medical disposables are single-use devices that are utilized in surgical and procedural applications. The usage of these medicinal goods in procedures and general checkups is growing. Furthermore, the usage of these disposables as directed by various authorities such as the USFDA and the European FDA is driving global demand for medical plastics. The primary drivers for the market are increased chronic illness occurrences, changing lifestyles of the middle-income group, the desire for better healthcare facilities, and an aging population.
