Benefiting from economic growth, population expansion and an increasing concern about health, the global demand for medical devices is increasing sharply. In North America, it is expected that healthcare will register a growth of 5.9% from 2017 to 2025. In Europe, rising demand for both dental and physical body implants is expected to have a positive impact on the medical plastics industry. In the Middle East and Africa, meanwhile, demand for medical components such as disposable gloves, syringes, and catheters will drive the market.

In China, the industry also expects to see substantial growth. This can be attributed to increasing private and public healthcare expenditures, and an increasing geriatric population, among other factors. In addition, at the beginning of 2019 three commercial giants - Baidu, Tencent, and Huawei - announced their entry into the medical device market. Experts project huge demand for Chinese medical devices as well as for high-end medical equipment.

In response to the trend, CHINAPLAS 2019, with focus on "Smart Manufacturing, Innovative Materials, Green & Circular Solutions" through "Medical Plastics Connect", a prominent event that consists of multiple components - "Medical Plastics Forum", "Medical Plastics Pop-up Kiosk", "Medical Plastics Guidebook" and "Medical Plastics Guided Tour". The event has been structured to empower manufacturers of medical devices, disposables and pharmaceutical packaging with the most advanced solutions and hottest technologies.

This prominent concurrent event will assemble renowned suppliers from around the world, along with industry associations and leading medical device manufacturers to create an effective and efficient communication platform.

"Medical Plastics Forum" will be held in two parts. First, well-known enterprises like Branson, RJG, Johnson & Johnson, Momentive, PolyOne, Lubrizol, Lehvoss, Cold Jet Dry Ice will discuss following topics: "Polymer Material Medical Device Sterilization", "Lubrizol Medical TPU in High-risk Medical Device Applications", "Revalidation of Injection Molding Processes Using Universal Setup Data", "Common Problems in Ultrasonic Plastic Welding", "Innovative Self-lubricated LSR and the Advantage in Needle-free Access Valve", "Polymer Solutions of Medical Consumables Provided by PolyOne Distribution", "LUVOCOMo High-Performance Compounds in Medical Technology", "Dry Ice Cleaning Technology - Innovative Application in the Medical Device Industry"

Part two will focus on the key role that 3D printing playing in this sector. The "2nd Biomedical 3D Printing Development Forum" will assess how 3D printing technology is helping to promote precision surgery and personalized medicine, and how biomedicine is considered to be one of the most promising areas for 3D printing, attracting attention from medical experts in the fields of orthopaedics, stomatology, and rehabilitation, as well as from other researchers and businesses.

The "Medical Plastics Pop-up Kiosk" meanwhile, will showcase a kaleidoscope of medical products manufactured from advanced medical plastics technologies and materials. For their convenience, kiosk visitors also will be able to obtain additional product information and exhibitor location instantly by scanning the onsite QR codes.
