Market Overview

The Medical Tubing market is a growing market with an average CAGR of 9.1% during the forecast period. As of 2018, Medical Tubing market industry is valued at 6.71 Billion USD, and it is estimated to reach 10.37 Billion USD by the year 2023. Asia Pacific (APAC) region had the largest market share of the Medical Tubing market in 2018, and its stock is projected to grow during the forecast period continually.

Recent Development

Scientists are looking at the old age technology of Excimer Lasers and how could it enable better catheter design by making its diameter smaller and making nice holes and patterns in the catheter.

Market Drivers and Restraints:


  1. Growing application of medical tubing in various medical devices such as catheters, disposable medical equipment, and diagnostic equipment, especially in the APAC region is a significant driver of the market.
  2. High penetration of minimally invasive and single-use devices in the healthcare industry and rise in the demand for top value-added products, such as cystoscopies, tracheostomy tubes, catheters, and endotracheal tubes is expected to drive the medical tubing market.
  3. Rising focus on healthcare infrastructure development, increased production of high-quality devices coupled with a rapidly aging population in the developed economies will drive the market.


Many developed economies are switching to bio-compatible plastic tubes which are compatible with the regulatory requirements of that area. This has been a restraint for the medical tubes market in many developed nations.

Medical Tubing Market Segmentation Analysis:

By Material:

Based on the material, the Medical Tubing market is divided into:

  1. PVC
  2. Polyolefin
  3. TPE & TPU
  4. Silicone

Based on the source, the Silicone segment has the highest market share as of 2018, and it’s expected to remain so in the forecast period. The medical tubes made from Silicone is resistant to high and low temperatures. Apart from that, tubes made from silicone is flexible and resistant to moisture, chemicals, and UV radiation, making it the best choice for the production of medical tubes.

By Application:

Based on the application, the Medical Tubing market is divided into:

  1. Bulk Disposable Tubing
  2. Catheters & Cannulas
  3. Drug Delivery Systems
  4. Special Applications

Based on the application, Bulk Disposable Tubing has the largest segment of Medical Tubing Market by type in 2018 and is projected to remain so in the forecast period. Bulk disposable tubing segment is especially growing in developing economies due to the increased disposable income and rising investments by governments to provide superior-quality healthcare facilities. Bulk disposable tubing comprises tubes used in blood bags for blood transfusion, IV infusion tubing, drug delivery disposables, respiratory disposables, products for dialysis, laboratory disposables, and wound management disposables.

Medical Tubing Market Geographical Analysis:

The Asia Pacific (APAC) region is the largest and fastest growing market for Medical Tubing across the globe which is majorly driven by high disposable income and government initiatives to provide superior healthcare. APAC region is projected to continue its dominance in Medical Tubing market during the forecast period. Countries such as China and Japan have a rapidly growing aging population which plays a crucial role in market growth.

Apart from the APAC region, North America and Europe also have a growing population of aged people which is driving the medical tubing market in that region.
