economic growth, population expansion and an intensifying aging phenomenon,
coupled with everyone’s increasing concern about health issues, the global demand
for medical devices is increasing sharply. In North America, it is
expected the spending on healthcare will register a growth of 5.9% from 2017 to
2025. In Europe, rising
demand for both dental and physical body implants is expected to have a
positive impact on the medical plastics industry. In the Middle East and Africa,
meanwhile, demand for medical components such as disposable gloves, syringes,
and catheters will drive the market.
In China, the industry also expects to see
substantial growth. This can be attributed to increasing private and public
healthcare expenditures, and an increasing geriatric population, among other
factors. In addition, at the beginning of 2019 three commercial giants –– Baidu,
Tencent, and Huawei –– announced their entry into the medical device market. Experts
project huge demand for Chinese medical devices as well as for high-end
In response to the trend, CHINAPLAS
2019, with focus on “Smart Manufacturing, Innovative Materials, Green &
Circular Solutions”, is turning a spotlight on medical plastics sector. CHINAPLAS
will provide an opportunity for upstream and downstream of medical companies to
network and learn about best practices, leading to a “safe, high precision manufacturing,
portable” medical industry.
Novel Materials Support Medical Product Makers
device products also place demanding requirements on the raw materials needed
to make them. Device makers are seeking safer and more environmentally friendly
materials, to include finding ways to use biocompatible and even biodegradable
Smart manufacturing has a role to play
Medical device manufacturing is a multi-disciplinary,
knowledge-based, capital-intensive, high-tech industry. It integrates different
state-of-the-art technologies, combining traditional industries with biomedical
engineering, information technology, and modern medical imaging technologies,
resulting in high entrance barriers. The ability to meet such requirements provides
one benchmark for determining the level of manufacturing sophistication and
high-tech development a country has attained.
Riding on the wave of “Made in China 2025”, China's
ability to manufacture precision and mechatronics equipment has been strengthened,
propelling the energetic development of the medical device industry.
Concurrent Event - Medical Plastics Connect
2019, the show organizer is offering “Medical
Plastics Connect”, a prominent event that consists of multiple
components –– “Medical Plastics Forum”, “Medical Plastics Pop-up Kiosk”,
“Medical Plastics Guidebook” and “Medical Plastics Guided Tour”. The event has
been structured to empower manufacturers of medical devices, disposables and
pharmaceutical packaging with the most advanced solutions and hottest
technologies. This prominent concurrent event will
assemble renowned suppliers from around the world, along with industry
associations and leading medical device manufacturers to create an effective
and efficient communication platform.
