Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst materials, silicone has a prominent share in the medical tubing market”

Based on material, the market is categorized into fluoropolymers, polyolefins, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), silicone, and others. Among these, silicone has a prominent share in the market. Silicone has numerous advantages over other materials, such as natural rubber. It is more bio-compatible than rubber medical tubes and does not support bacterial growth. Furthermore, silicone is recyclable and can be reused multiple times. Additionally, it has excellent dimensional stability and is resistant to various factors such as chemicals, temperature, and UV radiation.


“Amongst structure, multi-lumen tubing has accounted for a considerable share in the medical tubing market”

Based on structure, the market is categorized into single-lumen tubing, multi-lumen tubing, tapered or bump tubing, balloon tubing, and others. Among these, multi-lumen tubing held a considerable market share. This is mainly ascribed as it is used in catheters and endoscopes for flushing and respiration, heating and cooling, monitoring flow rates, and drug fusion due to its dielectric properties such as temperature, resistance, high lubricity, and biocompatibility.

“Amongst applications, bulk disposable has accounted for a considerable share in the medical tubing market”

Based on application, the market is categorized into bulk disposable tubing, drug delivery systems, catheters, and others. Among these, bulk disposable tubing held a prominent position in the medical tubing market. Bulk disposable tubing is utilized for various purposes such as blood transfusion, IV transfusion tubing, respiratory tubing, and others. Also, it is used in delivering fluids and drugs to an individual directly in the blood.

“Amongst end-user, hospitals and clinics have accounted for a considerable share in the medical tubing market”

Based on end-user, the market is categorized into hospitals and clinics, ambulatory surgical centers, medical labs, and others. Among these, hospitals and clinics have a prominent share in the market as medical tubing is used for various applications in the hospitals and clinics, such as delivering intravenous medication and in catheter systems. It is also used for tying off wounds, restricting blood flow, resistance training, and numerous other purposes.

“North America accounted for a significant share in the medical tubing market”

For a better understanding of the market adoption of medical tubing, the market is analyzed on its worldwide presence in the countries such as North America (United States, Canada, Rest of North America), Europe (Germany, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, and Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, India, Australia, and Rest of APAC), and Rest of World. North America held a considerable share in the market and demand is expected to maintain a strong position during the foreseeable future. This can be attributed to the high expenditure in the healthcare industry and the growing old-age population in the region. For instance, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, more than 55 million Americans are age 65 or older. Thus, it could increase the demand for medical tubing devices for various purposes such as a feeding tube may be required if a person has been placed on a ventilator to help them breathe. Thereby, it will fuel the demand for medical tubing in the region.
