A polymer is a large molecule, or macromolecule, composed of many repeated subunits. Because of their broad range of properties, both synthetic and natural polymers play an essential and ubiquitous role in everyday life. Polymers range from familiar synthetic plastics such as polystyrene to natural biopolymers such as DNA and proteins that are fundamental to biological structure and function. Polymers, both natural and synthetic, are created via polymerization of many small molecules, known as monomers. Their consequently large molecular mass relative to small molecule compounds produces unique physical properties, including toughness, viscoelasticity, and a tendency to form glasses and semi crystalline structures rather than crystals.
In the world wide, major manufactures mainly distribute in North America and Europe. In North America, transnational companies, like Dupont and Celanese are taking a leading share in this area. As to Netherlands, DSM has become a global leader. In Germany, it is BASF and Bayer that lead the technology development. In China, the manufactures focus in Tianjin and Shanghai.
North America is the largest consumer of Polymers in medical devices and is expected to retain the higher growth rate during the next five years due to strong growth in medical devices industry. China and Japan have witnessed a major chunk of the production and consumption of Polymers in Medical Devices in the Asia Pacific region. Actually, that is why manufacturers have several plants, usually close to aimed demand market.
All manufactures in the world are committed to the improvement of product. These two years, some of Chinese manufactures can almost catch up with the world's leading technology too. Most technologies are developed by the manufacturers instead of importing from other companies.
Over the next five years, LPI(LP Information) projects that Polymers in Medical Devices will register a 2.7% CAGR in terms of revenue, reach US$ 5330 million by 2023, from US$ 4560 million in 2017.
