Global Medical Tubing Market Expected to Reach Market Size of US$ 21 billion by 2028: Ken Research
According to Ken Research Analysis, the Global Medical Tubing Market is expected to record a positive CAGR of ~11% during the forecast period (2022-2028) and is expected to reach nearly US$ 21 billion by 2028.

Medical tubing is designed for a variety of medical or pharmaceutical-related applications that allows clinicians to administer devices and fluid or liquid and gas flow. Medical tubes are made from different materials such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC), silicon, polyethylene, and others and are available in a variety of shapes and sizes to meet the demand for medical tubing in various applications.

The type of material used to manufacture medical tubing plays an important role as incompatibility of material can lead to chemical alteration of medicines or drugs, binding of chemical or drug delivery to the patient, and other serious issues. Medical tubing has become the most supportive apparatus in the modern medical and healthcare industry.

According to Ken Research Analysis, the Global Medical Tubing Market is expected to record a positive CAGR of ~11% during the forecast period (2022-2028) and is expected to reach nearly US$ 21 billion by 2028, owing to an increase in advancement in drug delivery system along with the rising prevalence of various diseases such as cardiovascular, respiratory, and other diseases.


The growing demand for minimally invasive procedures and the rising prevalence of diseases are some of the factors driving the market growth.

  • The increasing demand for minimally invasive medical procedures over conventional surgical procedures, as these ensure benefits like low cost, quick recovery time, and lesser duration of hospital stays, is likely to boost the demand for the medical tubing market globally.
  • The rising cases of various diseases including respiratory disease, cardiovascular diseases, digestive disorders, and others increase the demand for medical tubing as it requires complex surgeries, which is expected to aid the growth of the global medical tubing market.

The global medical tubing market faces challenges due to significant investments and delays in regulatory approvals for medical tubing.

  • The requirement of high investment for manufacturing medical tubing and intensive research and development process along with stringent regulation on medical tubing and delay in regulatory approvals is the most significant barrier to the growth of the global medical tubing industry.

The COVID-19 pandemic positively impacted the medical tubing market as the demand for equipment with tubing apparatus including infusion pumps, ventilators, and others increased along with the high prevalence of COVID-19 illness, which affected the lungs and other respiratory problems and significantly boosted the demand for medical tubing. In September 2020, according to World Health Organization (WHO), more than 32.7 million COVID-19 cases and 991,000 deaths had been reported.
