Increasing at a CAGR of 6%, the global medical connectors market is predicted to increase from a valuation of US$ 2.74 billion in 2023 to US$ 4.91 billion by the end of 2033. Hospitals & clinics, ambulatory surgical centers, and diagnostic laboratories & imaging centers are the prime end users of medical connectors.
Demand for medical connectors from ambulatory surgical centers is expected to rise at a similar CAGR of 6%, while that from hospitals is likely to increase at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period.
Developing Healthcare Facilities Aiding Medical Connectors Expansion
On the basis of products, the market is classified into flat surgical silicone cables, embedded electronics connectors, radio-frequency connectors, disposable plastic connectors, hybrid circular connectors & receptacle system, power cords with retention system, lighted hospital-grade cords, magnetic medical connectors, and push-pull connectors. In 2016, the flat silicone surgical cables segment accounted for the largest share of the market. The increasing adoption of connectors in medical devices is expected to fuel the growth of the market during the forecast period. The growth of the medical devices market is also one of the major factors influencing the growth of this product segment.
Based on applications, the market is segmented into cardiology devices, diagnostic imaging devices, electrosurgical instruments, patient monitoring devices, endoscopy devices, respiratory devices, analyzers & processing instruments, dental instruments, neurology devices, enteral devices, and other applications
New medical equipment and technologies are being developed as a result of continuous R&D in the healthcare sector. Improved medical connectors are required as these connectors are connected to various additional devices and equipment.
Medical connectors that are both affordable and tolerant of various sterilizing procedures are the main goals of manufacturers. When constructing medical connectors, attention is also paid to high dependability, avoiding the possibility of failure due to numerous external variables as well as bad handling.
