Medical Plastics Connect at CHINAPLAS 2019

May 06, 2019 | By CENS

Benefiting from economic growth, population expansion and an intensifying aging phenomenon, coupled with everyone's increasing concern about health issues, the global demand for medical devices is increasing sharply. In North America, it is expected the spending on healthcare will register a growth of 5.9% from 2017 to 2025. In Europe, rising demand for both dental and physical body implants is expected to have a positive impact on the medical plastics industry. In the Middle East and Africa, meanwhile, demand for medical components such as disposable gloves, syringes, and catheters will drive the market.

In China, the industry also expects to see substantial growth. This can be attributed to increasing private and public healthcare expenditures, and an increasing geriatric population, among other factors. In addition, at the beginning of 2019 three commercial giants -- Baidu, Tencent, and Huawei -- announced their entry into the medical device market. Experts project huge demand for Chinese medical devices as well as for high-end medical equipment.

In response to the trend, CHINAPLAS 2019, with focus on "Smart Manufacturing, Innovative Materials, Green & Circular Solutions", is turning a spotlight on medical plastics sector. During CHINAPLAS 2019, the show organizer is offering "Medical Plastics Connect", a prominent event that consists of multiple components -- "Medical Plastics Forum", "Medical Plastics Pop-up Kiosk", "Medical Plastics Guidebook" and "Medical Plastics Guided Tour".
