Technology of medical plastic products

over the past 20 years, with the development of medical devices, medical plastics have played a more and more important role in the medical industry. In 1997, the output value of medical devices in the world reached 137billion US dollars, while medical plastics accounted for 15% of its share. The total output value of medical devices in China reached 30billion yuan in 2000, and medical plastics was about 4billion yuan. In 1999, 5700 medical device enterprises were registered nationwide, while more than 600 enterprises produced medical plastics, accounting for 10%

according to the statistics, China's medical plastics industry has developed rapidly in the past 10 years. The polyurethane industry attaches great importance to the automobile industry and the increasing market exhibition, while there are few high-tech fields. It is estimated that the medical device market in China will increase by 40% by 2005, and then the medical plastics will increase year-on-year, with great market potential

there is still a big gap between China's medical plastic products and the advanced level of foreign countries, mainly manifested in:

1 Due to the backward basic industry, the categories of raw materials required for medical plastic products are incomplete, the quality standards are not standardized, and there is a lack of enterprises developing medical plastic raw materials

2. The basic facilities and management level of medical plastic production enterprises are low, and the stability and reliability of product quality are poor. There are nearly 600 enterprises producing medical plastic products in China, many of which have backward infrastructure and fail to fully comply with the production and management specifications of disposable sterile medical devices. The backward processing equipment hopes to bring help to everyone. The quality level of management personnel is low, even workshop type labor-intensive, the production environment cannot meet GMP standards, and the technical force is weak. All these hinder the development of medical plastic enterprises in China, Therefore, domestic medical plastic products often have continuous quality problems. Although the State Pharmaceutical Administration has increased supervision, punishment and crackdown on counterfeiting, in order to make China's medical plastic enterprises have a rapid development, enterprises must do according to laws and regulations, pass ISO9000 quality system certification, standardize enterprise behavior, and improve quality awareness

3. The technical structure of products is out of date, which is conducive to the development of contemporary science and technology. The technical performance of most materials and products belongs to medium and low-grade products. A considerable number of products have not formed the output of economies of scale, and the labor productivity of the whole staff is low, lacking market competitiveness

4. Select areas with good domestic basic conditions, through the efforts of enterprises and the support of government policies, and through the joint establishment of several industrial centers integrating development, research, production and marketing, to compete with foreign enterprises in some key products that affect the national economy, so as to cope with the competitive pressure faced by our enterprises after the WTO. According to the track of market economy, we should pay attention to the biomedical medical plastic industry, limit the increase of low value-added and low technology product enterprises, focus on supporting several large-scale enterprises with good basic conditions, eliminate backward small and medium-sized enterprises, and establish a competitive mechanism of survival of the fittest

5. In recent years, China's medical plastics industry has developed rapidly, with an average annual growth rate of 15%-20%. However, domestic medical plastics is an emerging industry, with a low starting point and a large gap compared with international advanced countries. For example, in 1982, the output value of China's medical plastics was only 78 million yuan (less than 100 million yuan). Even though the output value of medical plastics increased to 3billion in 1997 (the output value of medical devices was 24billion, accounting for 12.5% of its share), the output value of medical plastics in 1999 was 3.8 billion, accounting for only 1% of the output value of medical plastics in the world, and the domestic per capita consumption was only 1% to 5% of that of foreign developed countries

to sum up, compared with advanced countries, the current situation of medical plastics in China still lags far behind. However, with the development of China's economy, human factors 2: the continuous improvement of the living quality requirements of ball screws, which drive the movement of sensors, and the lasting demand for medical products, the market prospect of China's medical plastics industry is extremely broad. After joining the WTO, we are facing opportunities and challenges. We have reason to believe that China's medical plastic industry will have a rapid development in the near future
