Global Medical Grade Silicone Market is projected to grow at a significant CAGR from 2017 to 2025  

Medical grade silicone is used in implantable and disposable medical devices which require high performance and safety standards when in contact with the human body.  It has gained widespread acceptance because of its negligible levels of toxicity and low risk of unfavourable biological reactions. The growing need for disposable devices has led to an increased demand for medical grade silicone. Lifestyle shifts and changing concepts of beauty resulting in the rising incidence of cosmetic and plastic surgeries are considered to be significant drivers of the global medical grade silicone market. Modern food habits often associated with cardiovascular diseases play a role as well in the growth of the global medical grade silicone market. Based on type, the medical grade silicone market is segmented into healthcare/medical adhesives, medical coatings, silicone elastomers, and gels. Silicone gel is increasingly being used in the healthcare industry in medical applications which range from very soft gels for prosthetic and implant applications, to very sticky gels for topical and transdermal wound care applications. They have proved to be very effective for scar treatment. These are also used in other medical applications, such as skin coverings, comfort pads, and others. One of the latest advancements is the use of silicone gel for manufacturing silicone gel sheets, which are used for the treatment of large scars that need to be protected and covered. Although the medical grade silicone market is growing at a significant rate, certain factors could hinder the market growth. The government measures to control healthcare cost and lack of investment in product development are restricting the growth of the market to some extent. Stringent and time-consuming regulatory policies are the major challenges for the market.
