SELBYVILLE, Del., August 3, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- According to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc. Styrenic polymer market for medical applications is expected to surpass USD 4.5 billion by 2024. Pressing need to substitute plastics including PVC in the medical industry owing to its hazardous environmental implications will drive medical styrenic polymers market size by 2024. PVC is extensively utilized in the healthcare industry to create devices for storing IV solutions, blood/medicine containers, tubes and connectors owing to brilliant clarity and ability to withstand broad range of temperature conditions. However, significant amount of toxic component released from PVC which may contaminate IV fluids and migrate into human body has led to formulation of strict regulations to gradually replace these products with styrene plastic which is eco-friendly and plasticizer free making it desirable across medical & healthcare industry.

Polystyrene accounted for the largest chunk of medical styrenic polymer market share in 2016. The product is majorly used in manufacturing medical devices, equipment, packaging, etc. due to its rigid and cost-effective nature. Furthermore, excellent physical attributes including transparency, easy availability in several colors is likely to stimulate medical styrenic polymer market size for the segment by 2024.
