CLEVELAND, OH and CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - February 26, 2015) - The medical plastics market is active with the pace of consolidation accelerating across the supply chain, according to the Plastics & Packaging Insider, an industry report released by Brown Gibbons Lang & Company (BGL), a leading middle market investment banking firm,

The BGL report, now available online, documents healthy appetite from strategic and financial buyers. Market participants are investing in expansion with acquisitions in focus to accelerate growth. 

Strong secular tailwinds, notably an aging population and ballooning number of healthcare consumers under the Affordable Care Act, are expected to fuel demand for medical products, with diabetes, personalized diagnostics consumables, and single-use devices among the high-growth markets. Outsourcing trends are expected to sustain future demand for services.

Market conditions are favorable for sellers seeking exits with competition for assets high. Quality businesses are commanding full valuation multiples due to the above-average growth and margin profile, product and development complexity, and high barriers to entry of niche markets.
