Medical Device Adhesive Market
Rise in Chronic Disease and Demand on Health Systems Is Driving Medical Device Adhesive Market

Medical Device Adhesive Market size is forecast to reach $4.16 billion by 2026, after growing at a CAGR of 6.8% during 2021-2026. The medical device adhesives are generally used in the single-use applications. These adhesives are used to bond the medical products such as syringes, blood bags, tube connections, dialysis filters and many others. The medical products are user-friendly and are made using the synthetic and natural resins. Light curing medical device adhesive are suitable for applications that require fast cure and high adhesion to plasticized materials. These medical-grade UV/Visible light curing chemicals are designed to boost production while reducing labour expenses and space constraints. They can be applied manually or automatically, depending on your preference. Cyanoacrylates medical device adhesives increase throughput, decrease costs, and create high-quality products. The growth in the market is due to the increase in the usage of medical device adhesive in various medical devices like, syringes, blood filtration, masks, tube sets, pacemakers, others.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an immediate impact on the world economy and that impact goes across all industries. COVID-19 hasn’t had a significant impact on raw material supplies for adhesives and sealants, except from transportation delays caused by travel restrictions and certain driver shortage difficulties. Although the situation is volatile, raw resources such as binders and resins have not yet become a problem. Owing to both the pandemic and major declines in oil prices, industries using adhesives and sealants have encountered varying levels of demand.

Medical Device Adhesive Market Segment Analysis – By Type of Adhesive

The Structural Adhesives held the largest share in the Medical Device Adhesive Market in 2020 growing at a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period. The structural adhesives provide a high peel and shear strength on the wide variety of plastics, glasses, and metals. These are cured with a set of thermoset plastics and with that it offers a great chemical resistance, thermal resistance, cohesive strength, and minimum shrinkages. The structural adhesives which are most commonly used in the needle manufacturing are light cure cyanoacrylates, one-part heat cured epoxies, and light cure acrylics.

Medical Device Adhesive Market Segment Analysis – By Type of Resin

Synthetic Resins held the largest share in the Medical Device Adhesive Market in the year 2020 growing at a CAGR of 7.3% during the forecast period. The synthetic Resins consists of silicones, polyurethanes, acrylics, epoxies, and others. These resins are used in single use applications as per the requirement in the medical industries. Different resins are used for different purposes but the mostly used resin is acrylic. The synthetic resins are used in dental equipment’s and surgeries, medical devices and equipment, internal and external medical applications. Cyanoacrylates can also be used in medical devices that are durable (DME). While used less often, when bonding polyolefins or other dissimilar surfaces, Cyanoacrylates still provide excellent adhesion and utility. Repeated chemical and autoclave sterilizations can withstand such formulations. Cyanoacrylates come in a variety of different formulations, and their uses can be tailored to exact applications. Urbanization with a large need for medical equipment has contributed to an increase in demand and material requirements in terms of resin. Many companies are spending lot on research and development in order to generate the new device and use and provide a smarter way for medical devices.

Medical Device Adhesive Market Segment Analysis – By Application

Needles and syringes held the largest share in the Medical Device Adhesive Market in 2020 with CAGR of 7.0% during the forecast period. The rise in the segment is due to the increase in medical problems and growing health issues. Adhesives are generally utilized for holding cannula to center points in needle gatherings. It is basic that the situation of the cannula stays fixed and that this joint is very much fixed to forestall liquids, for example, blood or medication, from spilling. With the growing medical industry and its demand for improving methods of treatment particularly in the regions of Asia-Pacific, North America and Europe, because of higher population. Medical device adhesives industries are witnessing growth due to the rising penetration from untapped markets. The opening of new healthcare institutions is an advantage in untapped regions like under-developed area or rural or far flung areas. Furthermore, R&D in Medical Device Adhesive will support the growth of the Medical Device Adhesive Market.

Medical Device Adhesive Market Segment Analysis – Geography

Asia-Pacific (APAC) dominated the Medical Device Adhesive Market in the year 2020 with a share of 38%, followed by North America and Europe. APAC as a whole is set to continue to be one of the largest and fastest growing medical markets globally. In APAC, China and Japan are facing problems due to accelerated growth in the ageing population. The change in lifestyle in the Asia-pacific region has led to the growth in chronic diseases like cancer, obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and others. The accelerated growth in the ageing population and increase in the chronic diseases has led to the growth in the medical device which will alongside augment the medical device adhesives market. Currently the medical device adhesive industry has been affected due to COVID-19 pandemic where most of the industrial activity has been temporarily shut down. In in turn has affected the demand and supply chain as well which has been restricting the growth in year 2020.

Medical Device Adhesive Market Drivers

Rise in Global Population and Rise in the Disposable Income

Industrialization has led to the increase in demand for medical device adhesive in medical industries for different purposes. The rapid growth in the population of the world is the driver for medical device adhesives market. The growth is due to the rise in the ageing population and medical expenditure. The growth is also due to the increase in number of hospitals in every possible region. Furthermore, due to a growing awareness of health and wellbeing among customers, the market for medical equipment is increasing. The demand for wearable medical devices is being fueled by the influence of progressive wellness on consumers’ attitudes toward exercise and a healthy lifestyle. Medical adhesives and glass substrates have strong binding characteristics that operate as an effective barrier against oxygen and moisture.

Rise in Chronic Disease and demand on Health Systems

Chronic disease prevalence is anticipated to climb by 57 percent by 2020, according to the World Health Organization. Because population growth is expected to be greatest in developing countries, emerging markets will be the hardest effected. Chronic disease has increased pressure on healthcare systems, which has become a serious concern. Global pandemics are another growing health concern. Pandemics in the last decade have proven the rapidity with which illnesses spread over the world. Pandemics will almost certainly cause considerable disruption to health systems on a regular basis. Healthcare organizations all across the world must be prepared to collaborate in order to promptly suppress outbreaks when they arise.

Medical Device Adhesive Market Challenges
