Styrenic block polymers, especially polypropylene (PP), depict high clarity, durability, resilience, superior flexibility, and tensile strength. These characteristics make them suitable for utilization in a variety of medical and healthcare products, including transparent medical bottles, stoppers, syringes, vials, medical tubing, medical IV bags, ventilators, oxygen masks, etc.
 

Besides, the increasing healthcare investments triggered by the onset of fatal health calamities such as COVID-19 and the subsequent rise in the uptake of medical equipment for preventive therapies will further stimulate industry revenue streams.
 

High manufacturing costs and limited solvent bonding to restrict medical styrenic block copolymers market growth

Medical products manufactured through conventional techniques that make use of styrene block copolymers have slightly lower solvent bonding capacity than PVC-based equipment. These complexities have surged the requirement to introduce advanced design modifications, such as the use of additional adhesive solutions and luer design modifications in tubing dimensions to attain the desired solvent bonding. This may lead to numerous challenges in optimizing product manufacturing expenses and thus may impede medical SBC industry growth through the next ten years.
