As one of the most commonly used biomaterials, silicone rubber is increasingly used in health care and medical fields due to its excellent properties in bio-compatibility and other properties.

Global medical grade silicone market by product type: elastomer, gel, medical adhesive, medical coating, etc. By applications: contact lenses, medical equipment, medical tape, etc. And regions: North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa (2017) with a value of $1,117.8 million, with a compound annual growth rate of 6.3% expected during the forecast period (2018 to 2026), the global market for medical grade organic silicone rubber is estimated to exceed $1.9 billion by 2026.

What Are the Characteristics of Liquid Silicone Rubber(LSR)?

LSR is attractive for durability, low viscosity, chemical and temperature resistance, and flexibility, but its biological compatibility is excellent.

LSR is highly compatible with human tissues and body fluids and resistant to bacterial growth. The medical grade of LSR is temperature-resistant, easily sterilized, and compatible with a wide range of medical instruments and accessories such as implant devices, liquid feed bottles, dialysis filters, and oxygen mask instruments.

In addition, wearable medical devices are becoming increasingly popular, leading to increased demand for LSRS.
