Date:10/10/2011

LOS ANGELES, October 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

MPMN and PlasticsToday.com, both leading news and information providers for the medical device and plastics industry, today announced the launch of a new conference on Innovations in Medical Polymers, providing insights into the latest technological and regulatory developments in the use of polymers in medical devices.

Having enjoyed sustained growth despite broader economic difficulties, the value of the global medical device market is expected to top $312 billion in 2011. Within that space, the medical polymer industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.8% until 2015, outpacing the expected 6% expansion of the medical device industry as a whole.  

Matt Defosse, PlasticsToday editorial director notes: "The innovative application of polymers in medical devices has grown rapidly in the last few years. Developments in design and technology have driven polymer based product development to new heights, enabling their use in ever more complex medical devices.  Already replacing traditional materials and providing solutions to medical challenges that were previously impossible, the use of polymers in medical devices is expected to grow rapidly over the next decade and beyond. Given the new and exciting developments in resorbable and biocompatible polymers, to name one area, our conference will be a timely showcase of some of the latest innovations."

The conference will feature industry-leading speakers from the medical device and polymer manufacturing markets, as well as academia and consulting organizations including: Ethicon, CiBOR, Cornell University, DSM, Allvivo Vascular, Solvay, and Frost & Sullivan. "Attendees will have the opportunity to learn how their peers are utilizing the latest medical polymer technologies to drive innovation in their next-generation medical devices," said Louise Challis, Conference Director, Innovations in Medical Polymers.
