The global medical tubing market is anticipated to expand at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.5% during the forecast period of 2022-2030.

Medical tubing is a vital component for both the medical and pharmaceutical industries. It is used in fluid management, drainage, gas flow, anesthesiology, respiratory equipment, IVs, catheters, peristaltic pumps, biopharmaceutical laboratory equipment, bulk disposable tubing, etc.

The usage of medical tubing is directly applicable to the human body, which is why specific materials with suitable specifications are utilized for manufacturing medical tubing.

Growth Drivers:

Factors primarily driving the growth of this market include: the proliferating demand for medical tubing from various applications; the surging demand for medical devices comprising medical tubing; the rising concerns pertaining to healthcare; the burgeoning cases of respiratory diseases; the soaring awareness regarding hospital-acquired diseases; the increasing number of collaborations and joint ventures between leading medical companies; the escalating investments & number of government initiatives to provide advanced healthcare facilities, and the growing demand for minimally invasive surgeries.

Additionally, the healthcare industry is witnessing a massive growth in overall expenditure across the globe. This is leading to the swift expansion of product lines as well as facilities used in the industry. As per the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) estimation, 56.0% of total expenditures were made in surgical procedures, whereas nonsurgical procedures accounted for around 44.0% of the total expenditure in 2016. This expenditure rose from 56.0% to 77.0% in surgical procedures in 2017. This increase in expenditure in the healthcare industry is expected to bode tremendously well for the growth of the global medical tubing market in the next few years, including the forecast period of 2022-2030.

Moreover, the number of research and development activities in the medical tubing market is also rising enormously. Most of these activities are directed towards producing and marketing new and innovative medical tubing with safe & advanced features. This increase in the focus of market players in the development of advanced medical tubing with new features is expected to create ample growth opportunities for the growth of the global medical tubing market during the forecast period.

Furthermore, other factors such as the rapidly expanding medical and pharma industries; the rising geriatric population base; the increasing usage of medical tubing in catheters; and the growing adoption of medical tubes made of plastics are expected to further augment the growth of the global medical tubing market during the forecast period.

However, factors such as stringent government regulations, high time and R&D expenditure involved in the manufacturing of medical tubing are expected to hinder the growth of the market to some extent during the forecast period.

Based on application, the bulk disposable tubing segment held the largest share of the global medical tubing market in 2021. The segment is anticipated to retain its dominance further in the market during the forecast period. Factors such as the surging focus on the prevention of infection from one patient to another, and the enhancing need for developing healthcare infrastructure and increased efficiency are majorly attributed to the segment’s growth. However, the drug delivery system segment is anticipated to attain the highest CAGR in the market during the forecast period.

Based on material, the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) sub-segment dominated the global medical tubing market in 2021. The sub-segment is predicted to maintain its lead further in the market during the forecast period of 2022-2030. The increasing preference for PVC due to its biocompatibility, transparency, and resistance to chemicals, and escalating adoption of single-use pre-sterilized medical devices resulting in the growing demand for PVC-based medical devices are the major factors attributable to the segment’s large share and high growth.

Regional Outlook:

The North American region captured the largest share of the global medical tubing market in 2021. The region’s position is likely to remain unchanged during the forecast period. Factors ascribed to the growth of the market in the region include the presence of well-established health care infrastructure; the growing innovation in the healthcare sector; the rising spending on healthcare; the soaring old-age population; and the increasing number of initiatives by governments to enhance the health care infrastructure in the region. The U.S. and Canada are the major contributors to the growth of the market in the region.

The Asia Pacific region is poised to emerge as the fastest-growing regional market for medical tubing during the forecast period. The growth of the market in the region can be well attributed to the proliferating awareness among people regarding treatments, the rapidly expanding healthcare industry; the ever-increasing middle-class population; and the soaring demand for minimally invasive techniques in the region. Countries such as India and China are the major contributors to the growth of the market in the region.

The European region held the second-largest share of the global medical tubing market in 2021. The region is estimated to continue to be one of the top shareholders in the market during the forecast period owing to the rising trend of self-care, the presence of well-established medical infrastructure, the rising healthcare expenditures, and the growing demand for diagnostic equipment containing medical tubes in the region.
