Market Overview:

The global polymers for implantable medical devices market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for implantable medical devices owing to the rising prevalence of chronic diseases and an aging population. In addition, technological advancements in polymer-based materials are also propelling the growth of this market. On the basis of type, metallic polymers accounted for the largest share in 2017 and are expected to maintain their dominance during the forecast period. This can be attributed to their high strength-to-weight ratio and biocompatibility which makes them suitable for use in various implantable medical devices such as orthopedic implants, cardiovascular implants, and neurostimulators. Polymeric materials are expected to witness highest growth during the forecast period on account of their properties such as flexibility, durability, and biocompatibility. Based on application, acetal (POM) held a major share in 2017 owing its superior properties such as toughness and chemical resistance which make it suitable for use in various implantable applications including catheters, guidewires tubing connectors & valves), prosthetic joints & heart valves). Acrylic (hydrogels) is projected grow at highest CAGR over next decade due its excellent optical clarity along with other features including low modulus & Shore hardness values that make it ideal material choice form hydrogel contact lenses).

Global Polymers for Implantable Medical Devices Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Polymers for implantable medical devices are high molecular weight substances that are composed of repeating units. These substances can be natural or synthetic and are often used to create implants, prosthetics, and other medical devices.

-They can be tailored to fit the specific needs of the patient.

-They can be designed to biodegrade over time so that they do not cause any long-term harm to the patient.

-They are often more durable than other materials which makes them ideal for use in implants and prosthetics.


Metallic nanoparticles are of two types, namely colloidal and nanoclustered. Colloidal metallic nanoparticles have a high surface area and are dispersible in organic solvents whereas nanoclustered metallic particles possess higher stability towards chemical reactions as compared to the bulk metal.


Composites and its usage in polymers for implantable medical devices market is expected to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period. Composites are materials that are composed of two or more elements connected by weak bonds. These composites offer several advantages such as low weight, high stiffness, strength, and biocompatibility over metals which makes them useful in various applications including dental implants.

Application Insights:

The Asia Pacific region dominated the global market in 2017, attributed to the growing population and favorable government policies for healthcare development. The countries in this region are involved in research activities for developing new polymers that can be used as alternatives to metal, ceramic, and biological implants. For instance, researchers at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) have developed a biodegradable polymer with high biocompatibility that can replace traditional medical devices such as heart valves and artificial joints. This new generation of bio-polymer is expected to offer benefits including cost-effectiveness and reduced risk of infection over traditional implants.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to maintain its position during the forecast period owing to increasing healthcare spending and awareness among end-users regarding polymer implants for medical devices. In addition, rising disposable income levels are anticipated to fuel demand for polymers in this region over the next eight years.

The Asia Pacific economy is characterized by a large population base that suffers from chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiac disorders, and arthritis. According to WHO data published in 2016, around 60% of diabetic patients live in Asian countries; China (19%) and India (13%) have proportionately more diabetics than any other country worldwide’s 9). These factors are expected drive demand for polymers used as implantable medical devices over the forecast period.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for minimally invasive surgeries: The Polymers for Implantable Medical Devices market is expected to benefit from the increasing demand for minimally invasive surgeries. This is because polymers are used in various medical devices that are inserted into the body through small incisions.
  • Technological advancements: The Polymers for Implantable Medical Devices market is expected to benefit from the ongoing technological advancements in this field. This is because new and innovative polymer-based medical devices are being developed on a regular basis, which should help boost the overall market growth.
  • Rising prevalence of chronic diseases: The Polymers for Implantable Medical Devices market is expected to benefit from the rising prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease across the world. This is because these diseases often require treatment with implantable medical devices, which use polymers as their primary component material.
