Silicone rubber is an important medical polymer material, mainly used in the field of medical catheter. The aging process of China's population drives the demand for medical silicone, and the market share of high-end medical equipment is gradually expanding. In addition, the development of the medical beauty industry and artificial organs provide room for the growth of the proportion of medical silicone in medical polymer materials.
According to the calculation of CITIC Securities, in terms of the overall medical/personal care silicone market share, the medical/personal care silicone market scale will be about 4.5 billion yuan in 2020, and it is estimated that the medical silicone market scale will reach 18 billion yuan in 2025, with a CAGR of 20.99% in the next 5 years.
Organic silicon, that is, organic silicon compounds, refers to the si-O bond, and at least one organic group is directly connected with the silicon atom compound, is also used to those through oxygen, sulfur, nitrogen, such as organic group and silicon atom connected to the compound is also regarded as organic silicon compound.
Organic silicon is required to participate in the metabolism of organisms, and usually the chemical formula of such organic silicon is CH3(SiOH)3. Silicone plays an important role in various bodily functions and is directly related to mineral absorption. The average human body contains about seven grams of silicon, far more than other important minerals such as iron. Iron and silicon are essential for maintaining a normal metabolism.
Because of its inertia and excellent biocompatibility, silicone materials have irreplaceable unique advantages in medical applications, and are being applied by more and more enterprises in the medical field. From infusion tubes, cochlear implants, prosthetics to orthodontic dental molds, wound care, etc., silicone materials are constantly actively protecting human health in a variety of forms.
