Players are Increasingly Investing in the Medical Plastics which is Promoting the Market Growth.

To expand their regional footprint and improve their product offering, these top players are adopting mergers and acquisitions, new product development, and expansion to address the rising demand for Medical Plastics in emerging economies.

Not just key players but also emerging players are expanding in the Medical Plastics industry and are also investing in strategies like collaborations and technological development to compete in the industry.

  • In November 2020, GW Plstics Inc., declared its merger with Nolato Group. With considerable volumes and resources, mostly in the Medical Solutions business sector, GW Plastics, now known as Nolato GW, gives Nolato a strong foothold on the North American continent.
  • In November 2021, Arkema unveiled a brand-new sophisticated bio-circular medical polymer for the production of surgical instruments and plastics for medical devices. These bio-based, recyclable polymers are manufactured using Arkema’s patented amino 11 chemistry from castor bean oil, a sustainable resource.

Increased Adoption of Medical Plastics in Various Parts of the World leading to Major Industry-Wide Developments, Acquisitions, and Deal-Wins

  • In August 2019, Kohlberg & Co. LLC declared the acquisition of Bemis Healthcare Packaging Europe from Amcor’s Flexible Packaging business. Furthermore, it will be merged with Nelipak Corp. The acquisition summed up to US$ 394 million for the three plants that offer flexible packaging to healthcare OEMs.
  • In January 2020, Covestro AG, for use in drug delivery and surgical instruments for patients and medical personnel, introduced two types of polycarbonates of a medical grade. The products include Makrolon M402 LF, Makrolon M204 LF, and Makrolon M404 LF, which lower coefficients of friction and provide dimensional and mechanical qualities without the need for additional lubricants.
  • In April 2022, according to Solvay’s sustainability effort that it started with Mitsubishi Chemical Advanced Materials, the company’s medical equipment built with Udel high-performance polysulfone (PSU) thermoplastic will be recycled when it has served its purpose (MCAM). To develop a strong recycling strategy that would provide customers with materials that fully comply with all standards, the project is anticipated to combine MCAM’s expertise in washing and mechanically purifying the material with Solvay’s capacity to assess the chemistry of the end-of-life polymer.
