Medical tubing is a hollow cylindrical pipe that is used to transmit liquid and gas. It is mostly manufactured using silicone, polyethylene, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), nylon, and thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) to make it safe to be used. It does not cause allergies and reactions to the human body. As it is highly pure, it has the capacity to survive extremely harsh medical conditions. It is commonly used in hospitals, clinics, and ambulatory surgery centers. Furthermore, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) grants standards to the medical tubing system depending on the particular applications required to be done by the medical tube. The increasing incidences of chronic diseases such as cancer, cardiac diseases, respiratory diseases such as asthma, lung cancer, pulmonary fibrosis, etc., are expected to boost the market’s growth. Medical tubing is essential to respiratory devices, such as ventilators, that facilitate breathing and propel the market’s growth. However, the manufacturing process of medical tubing requires a longer time and high investment. The increasing healthcare expenditure is expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities during the forecast period. Teleflex is an American giant which has invested in the manufacture and marketing of advanced and safe medical tubing with impeccable features when compared to the previous versions of medical tubes manufactured by the same manufacturer.

BY MATERIAL TYPE: Based on the Material Type, the medical tubing market is categorized into Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE), Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU), Silicone, Polyolefins (Polyethylene (PE), and Polypropylene (PP)), and Others. The polyvinyl chloride (PVC) segment will account for the greatest revenue in the market as it can be easily sterilized using ethylene oxide and irradiation sterilization methods. Furthermore, it is transparent, biocompatible, and resistant to chemicals, making it the most preferred material for manufacturing medical tubes. Furthermore, the increasing demand for single-use pre-sterilized medical devices propels the segment's growth.

BY APPLICATION: Based on Application, the Medical Tubing Market is categorized into Bulk Disposable Tubing, Catheters & Cannulas, Drug Delivery Systems, and Special Applications. The Bulk Disposable Tubing has accounted for the largest revenue in the market due to the increasing focus on preventing infection from one patient to another. In addition, the rising demand for bulk disposable devices such as surgical instruments, urological products, syringes, and needles increases the demand for bulk disposable tubing.  Bulk disposable tubing consists of IV infusion tubing, tubes used in blood bags for blood transfusion, respiratory disposables, drug delivery disposables, laboratory disposables, products for dialysis, and wound management disposables.


Based on region, the Medical Tubing Market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America and Middle East & Africa. North America is expected to be the largest market. This is mostly due to several small and medium enterprises rising R&D activities to develop medical healthcare facilities in the healthcare sector. Furthermore, the U.S has kept its R&D tax credit low which increases the demand for medical tubing in the market. Also, the population of elderly people in the region is rising at an alarming rate; however, America and  Canada have the most prosperous aging populations due to social security payments by the government. For instance, the Nordson Corporation launched a Polyurethane Tubing named 80 Durometer medical tube to be used for medical applications.
