Report : North America Medical Grade Paper Market Forecast to 2028 - COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis By Product (Kraft Paper and Sack Paper), Application (Steam Sterilization, Ethylene Oxide Sterilization, Formaldehyde Sterilization, and Irradiation Sterilization), and End User (Hospital, Diagnostic and Research Center, Pharmaceutical Industry, and Other)

At 4.1% CAGR, the North America Medical Grade Paper Market is speculated to be worth US$ 2136.31 million by 2028, says Business Market Insights              

According to Business Market Insights’ research, the North America medical grade paper market was valued at US$ 1682.33 million in 2022 and is expected to reach US$ 2136.31 million by 2028, registering an annual growth rate of 4.1% from 2022 to 2028.  Rising demand for protective packaging in medical device industry and need for convenient and easy-to-use medical-grade packaging suitable for maintaining sterility are the critical factors attributed to the market expansion.               

Medical device manufacturers invest huge amounts in the research and development of technologically advanced medical devices as there is a greater demand for various devices that have received approvals. Since these devices must be manufactured in compliance with various safety standards and regulations, the vendors also tend to spend on more specialized packaging materials and solutions. Thus, the demand for protective packaging products and materials that can shield medical equipment from contamination and mechanical harm during their handling, transportation, and storage is anticipated to increase. According to statistics, packaging failure accounts for 10% of medical device recalls, while package holes account for 31% of these failures. Highly protective packaging guarantees the integrity of medical equipment from the point of manufacture to the final destination or point of use. The ongoing development of flexible primary packaging products that serve as both a sterile barrier system (SBS) and a protective covering to prevent the entry of microbes would further contribute to the medical grade paper market proliferation in the coming years. For medical instruments that are separately packaged, folding cartons offer good secondary protection. To ensure increased safety, manufacturers are making investments in the creation of more innovative packaging solutions by using materials such as paper and paperboard, glass, and polymers. Thus, the rising demand for protective packaging is driving the growth of the medical grade paper market.
