Increased adoption of medical polyetheretherketone as a substitute for metals has boosted the medical polyetheretherketone market. Aluminium, carbon steel, bronze, stainless steel, brass, titanium, and magnesium are among the metals that medical polyetheretherketone has begun to replace in significant numbers.

As a result of rigorous environmental rules, automakers are compelled to increase fuel economy, decrease maintenance needs, and lower noise levels. As a result of these laws, the trend for lighter automobiles is being driven by automobile light-weighting. Polyetheretherketone is a substantial improvement over metals for decreasing pollutants and increasing fuel efficiency.

The demand for medical polyetheretherketone will not grow as fast as it could because it is more expensive than other medical-grade polymers. But these plastics can’t replace medical polyetheretherketone because it is a high-performance polymer with better qualities like high flexural strength, resistance to impact, resistance to chemicals and heat, and compatibility with living organisms. Strict rules about medical devices also make it hard to use medical polyetheretherketone in medical devices and implants.

Over the projection period, the Asia-Pacific region’s revenue is anticipated to increase by 8.7 per cent. With a medical polyetheretherketone market value of USD 36.17 million in APAC for medical polyetheretherketone in 2021, cardiovascular applications emerged as the leading category in the region. This is due to the sedentary lifestyles of the young and old in nations such as China and India.

To satisfy the rising demand for dental implants and dentures in the region, it is anticipated that the adoption of medical polyetheretherketone denture base material will increase. As a result, in the Asia-Pacific area, dental implants and fixtures are anticipated to increase at a 9.3 per cent CAGR over the projection period.

Medical polyetheretherketone is emerging as an eco-friendly alternative in a variety of applications. Compared to other polymers, such as ABS, polyester laminate, polyvinyl chloride, polystyrene, and polysulphone, its use results in lower carbon emissions. By providing exceptional corrosion resistance, PEEK extends the service life of the goods in which it is utilised. It can also operate at elevated temperatures for a longer duration than other polymers. It is one of the most adaptable products in terms of production design flexibility, resulting in minimal labour dependence. The substantial benefits are leading the demand for medical polyetheretherketone.
