The global Medical Plastics Market size is projected to reach USD 54.29 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period. Meteoric rise in the demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) across countries will inevitably fuel the uptake of medical plastics, finds Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled “Medical Plastics Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Application (Medical Disposables, Medical Instruments, Prosthetics & Implants, Drugs Packaging, and Others), and Regional Forecast, 2020-2027”. PPE is made from plastics and other polymers and the on-going COVID-19 pandemic has escalated the demand for such equipment among frontline health workers worldwide. In Texas, for instance, the request for PPE from healthcare facilities surged from less than 2,000 in the third week of June to more than 22,000 in the last week of the same month. In India, the Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC) estimates that the domestic demand for PPE will be worth INR 10,000crore in the upcoming year and worldwide, the business will stand at an estimated value of USD 60 billion. Thus, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to prove beneficial for this market in the immediate future.
