Polyvinyl Chloride was the largest type segment of the medical plastics market in 2016. 

Polyvinyl chloride is the largest type segment for medical plastics. PVC is the third most widely produced synthetic plastic polymer after polyethylene and polypropylene. The demand for PVC is high, as PVC is compatible with different kinds of additives that make it a versatile polymer and thus, is suitable for use in the manufacturing of medical plastics. PVC is widely used in the manufacturing of Class I medical devices. Medical devices manufactured using PVC can be easily sterilized using methods such as steam, radiation, or ethylene oxide. The two main applications of medically approved PVC compounds are flexible containers and tubing.

Disposables is the largest application segment of the medical plastics market. 

Disposable medical devices can be disposed of once they are used. Medical devices such as contact lenses, hypodermic needles, disposable enemas, dialysis disposables, medical and cleaning gloves, and other medical products have been considered under this segment. Among the major disposable medical devices, the dialysis disposables subsegment is expected to witness the fastest growth rate globally, due to the increasing end-stage kidney disorder cases and high frequency of therapeutic requirements. Polymers such as silicone hydrogel, polyethylene, polystyrene, epoxy resins, and polypropylene are used for manufacturing disposable medical devices.
