"The overall demand for health care will increase significantly, thanks to the growing global population and aging, especially in Asia, where we expect health care applications to gain more than average growth." Netstal Vice President of Marketing Markus Dal Pian said. He expects that in the field of medical applications, the world will be 4% growth, while the Asian plate market will have 5% to 6% growth.
At the recent German Plastics Processing Fair, Swiss machine manufacturer Netstal Corporation (KraussMaffei Group subsidiary) in the production of medical accessories, demonstrated its first-class technology and applications.
The company expects demand for medical plastics products to continue to grow. While the mature market continues to develop steadily, the emerging market is expected to achieve faster growth.
Because many large international companies are located in Europe or the United States, and have a greater impact on the global market, so Netstal company, they are of great importance. The market for medical plastics in the central region of Europe is growing, which is why the company has highlighted the new technology in the medical plastics sector at Fakuma.
"Europe is an existing mature market, not only with a lot of proprietary technology, but also has a high level of education, while the Asian market is growing, and great potential." Mr. Dal Pian said. "As we have seen, strong growth in Southeast Asia, China, North America, South America and Africa, we are looking forward to a stable market environment for Europe."
In addition to medical plastic applications, other high potential areas include food packaging and beverage packaging, such as packaging and PET preforms. In general, the main global trend is that machine builders and their customers are working hard to use resources and reduce energy consumption. After using the plastic, the pollution is also will be caused, so plastic recycling such as polystyrene recycling is also need to pay more attention.
