Medical Grade Silicones show compatibility with living tissues and are highly adaptable to the human body and skin. Medical Grade Silicones are used in manufacturing medical devices owing to their properties such as low chemical reactivity, low toxicity, heat resistance, and flexibility.
Various applications of Medical Grade Silicone in the manufacturing of medical devices such as tubes, drains, catheters, seals and gaskets, and others drive the market growth. The Medical Grade Silicone is bacteria resistant, non-reactive, easy to sterilize, and good for sensitive applications such as respiratory tubing. The Elastomers Based Medical Silicone is driving the growth of the global market due to its properties such as hypoallergenic, non-reactivity with most chemicals, high tear strength, and exceptional thermal conductivity. The prevailing trend wherein the use of liquid silicone rubber (LSR) and high consistency rubber (HCR) elastomers to manufacture medical devices are likely to increase the demand for Medical Grade Silicone Market further. For instance, the Dow Corning Company (now DowDupont) has recently launched two new products that include low-temperature cure liquid silicone rubber, which provides high injection speeds and fast cure rates and next-generation selective adhesion materials, which enable the combination of silicone onto resin substrates such as co-polyester, with primer-less adhesion and a fast cure at low temperatures. Furthermore, the research and development of silicone gels have proved effective for scar treatment, which is likely to fuel the market growth during the assessment period. Moreover, according to an article published in Journal of Cutaneous & Aesthetic Surgery, topical self-drying silicone gel is a relatively recent treatment for superficial scars, hypertrophic scars, and keloids.
