, 3 January 2018 -- Fluoropolymer Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2017-2026

Fluoropolymer material comes in various forms, but the most common form is polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). In the medical device industry, PTFE is being widely used for in-body application in the solid form as it is very clean and easily inert in tissue or blood. However, it cannot be used and any load-bearing application as the material is very soft. The companies in the healthcare industry are opting for fluoropolymer as compared to the plastic for packaging due to its barrier properties and natural inertness.

Moreover, the healthcare industry is also increasingly adopting materials that are able to meet unique performance standards such as sterilization, compatible with living tissues, stable in various range of temperatures, purity, lubricity, and inertness to chemical activity. Extensive research is also being carried out in order to optimize and upgrade the performance of fluoropolymer material in the healthcare industry.

Fluoropolymers are being used in manufacturing medical devices based on two key properties i.e. biocompatibility and lubricity. Moreover, there has also been an increase in the use fluoropolymer in external medical devices such as limb installation, jackets, gloves, aprons, etc., to protect from various diseases and infection. Surgeons are also increasingly using fluoropolymer multilumen catheter to perform surgeries without the need to remove one catheter and use another. Unique properties of fluoropolymer has made it one of the most preferred materials for manufacturing devices used in minimally invasive medical procedures. Various regulatory bodies have also imposed stringent regulations on the use and manufacturing of fluoropolymer products.
