Medical Copper Tubing Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth, and Forecast 2017 - 2025
Global Medical Copper Tubing Market: Snapshot
The quest for turning the standard metal types into useful medical tubing is still a quite complicated process. One of the biggest reasons behind this the choice of metal. Most of the time this choice is driven by the target application as well as the nature of the metal. Medical applications involve tubing systems that are successfully comply to the required specifications. So far, copper has been the leading metal among the range of other metals used for the production of medical tubing. With this growing popularity of copper in the production of medical tubing, the leading market players are thus expected to ramp up their production capacities in the coming years of the forecast period.
Medical copper tubing is used for the supply of medical air, carbon dioxide, oxygen, medical vacuum, nitrous oxide, and other gases. There are different types medical copper tubing such as DMW, Type L, and Type K. Theses medical copper tubings are designed as per the standards issued by ASTM. Each type determines a series of different tubing sizes with a variety of thickness. The Type K tubing possess thicker walls than that of Type L. Moreover, the inner diameter of the tubing depends on the size of the tube and thickness of the wall.
It is mandatory of all the medical copper tubing products to adhere to the regulations and mandates issued by CSA and ASTM B819. The ASTM B819 have set up the proper standards required for the thickness of medical copper tubing products. It makes them more suitable for the application of gas transfer.
Medical copper tubing material is generally utilized for supplying medical gases such as carbon dioxide, oxygen, nitrous oxide, and nitrogen. The basic fact that copper is beneficial for human health is the primary driving factor for the development of medical copper tubing market. The market is also driven by the factor that use of copper tubing allows free-flowing gas delivery without any hindrances caused by bacterial infection and corrosion of tubes. Copper tubes are favored in the medical domain because it offers significant advantage over traditional gas delivery systems in terms of uninterrupted supply of gas. The copper tubing products are expected to comply with the regulatory norms such as ASTM B819 and CSA. The ASTM B819 regulatory standard defines the conditions for the range of wall thickness of different types of medical copper tubes that are satisfactory for medical gas systems. Thus, complying with such marketing specifications and manufacturing standards for copper tubes is anticipated to boost the market growth.
The process of manufacturing medical copper tubing is examined in detail with respect to three points. Those aspects are equipment suppliers and raw materials used, different costs associated with manufacturing such as labor cost and material cost among others, and the actual manufacturing process. Increased investments in developing better infrastructure and improvements in manufacturing output across the globe are projected to surge the growth of the global medical copper tubing market.

Global Medical Copper Tubing Market: Trends and Opportunities
The global medical copper tubing market is driven by the increasing demand for copper tubing for gas delivery owing to its corrosion-resistant and antibacterial properties. Copper tubing are easy to install and long lasting. However, copper tubing products should satisfy the regulatory standards such as CSA and ASTM B819. Manufacturing and marketing standards and specifications compliances met by product manufacturers are expected to fuel the market’s growth.
The type K segment led the overall industry by revenue in the recent past. The rising demand and high price factor of products account for the large share of type K segment. The oxygen application segment is expected to account for a significant share in the overall industry in the coming years. This is mainly due to the presence of a large number of individuals with respiratory disorders and an increasing number of patients that need emergency treatment. Medical vacuum, on the other hand, is expected to display the highest growth rate due to the rising use of copper tubing for the secure and adequate flow of medical vacuum at required pressure levels to gas outlets.
The hospital end-use segment accounted for the highest revenue contribution to the global medical copper tubing market in the recent past. Copper tubing is preferred for medical gas delivery in hospitals due to its benefits as compared to traditional systems. Copper tubing products are particularly advantageous for critical care patients in ICU, CCU, and OT for an uninterrupted supply of gases. However, outpatient facilities is expected to display the fastest growth rate in the medical copper tubing market. This is mainly due to the increasing use of copper tubing products for diagnostics and laboratory tests.
