SBCs are high performance materials with superior physical and chemical properties which make them suitable for use in various end use industries including the medical industry. Growing trend of replacing PVC with environment-friendly compounds has resulted in a surge in SBC demand for medical and healthcare applications.
This report analyzes the demand for Styrenic Block Copolymers (SBCs) exclusively for the medical and healthcare industry in terms of volumes as well as revenues from 2011 to 2018. Key market dynamics including drivers, restraints, opportunities, product trends along with their expected impact have been covered in detail in this study.
The study provides a comprehensive picture of the SBC industry by segmenting key SBCs used in the medical industry, namely styrene ethylene butylene styrene (SEBS), styrene butadiene styrene (SBS) and other SBCs (including SIBS). Each of these segments has been analyzed for the period from 2011 to 2018. The report also estimates and forecasts various applications of SBCs in the medical industry from 2011 to 2018. The report separately highlights the regulations laid down by various regulatory bodies regarding the use of plastics for the medical industry in particular.
The report also provides a holistic approach of the SBC value chain from the raw material manufacturer to the end user. In addition it also analyzes the higher value added SBC applications such as medical and healthcare, product types and their potential users. The study uses Porter's five forces analysis as a tool to provide better understanding of the global market in terms of suppliers, buyers, competition and threats from substitutes and new entrants. The report includes a special chapter dedicated to evaluate the potential compounds which may pose a threat to SBCs as well as other high-end TPEs in the medical sector.
