Medical tapes are pressure-sensitive tapes used in supporting the bandage or other wound dressings. Medical bandages are cotton gauge cloths used for supporting medical devices like surgical dressings or splints. Medical tapes and bandages are used to maintain the moisture at the site of dressing, promote wound healing, and provide mechanical & bacterial protection to the wound.

Market Dynamics

The major driving forces are the expansion and emergence of the wound care management sector, increase in geriatric population, healthcare expenditure, and increasing incidence of chronic wounds, the prevalence of accidents and trauma cases, growing number of surgeries, healthcare awareness, and limited application of traditional wound dressings.

The increasing number of healthcare-acquired infections (HAIs) is driving is expected to drive the market growth     

The increasing number of Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAIs) is driving manufacturers and hospitals to seek newer methods for reducing infection. For instance, in American hospitals alone, the CDC has reported that HAIs account for about 1.7 million infections and 99,000 deaths every year. Of these infections, 32 % of all healthcare-acquired infections are urinary tract infections, 22 % are surgical site infections, 15 % are pneumonia (lung infections), and 14 % are bloodstream infections. Hence, the use of medical tapes is increasing that can help decrease the incidence of infections. Major players are mainly focusing on strengthening their medical bandages and tape product portfolio. Hence, companies are launching new products with unique features for specific purposes.

The prevalence of accidents and trauma cases is expected to boost the market. For instance, according to WHO, approximately 1.35 million people die each year as a result of road traffic crashes. Road injuries are the leading cause of death for children and young adults aged 5-29 years. As per The American Association for the Surgery of Trauma, Over 3 million non-fatal injuries and over 150,000 fatal injuries occur annually in the United States due to injury. Each year, injuries cause more than 5 million fatalities globally. Many more millions are hurt. Injury-causing incidents do not happen at random or without warning. By becoming more knowledgeable about the causes of injury and putting the right injury prevention measures into place, damage can be avoided, and many lives can be saved. Many of these tactics, like seat belts and helmets, are well-known, simple to find, and reasonably priced. Thus, the growing number of road injuries is driving the market.

The rising awareness about advanced wound care products will hamper the growth of the market  

However, the rising awareness about advanced wound care products, government regulations related to the safety and efficacy of medical tapes and bandages, and the lack of proper guidelines on using medical tapes and bandages are expected to hinder market growth. For instance, Healogics, Inc., has sponsored the 6th annual Wound Care Awareness Week from June 3, 2019, to June 7, 2019. Throughout this week, Healogics team members worked together to shed light on chronic wounds and brought awareness to the advanced wound care options available.

Segment Analysis

The medical bandages are expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2022-2029)          

Medical Bandages are expected to emerge as one of the top-selling products in the global medical tapes and bandages market. This is owing to the recent US FDA approvals and new product development of bandages by universities and healthcare organizations, the rising number of surgical procedures, and rising medical conditions. The Loyola University Health System reported that SSIs are the most common and costly of all hospital-acquired infections, accounting for 20 % of all hospital-acquired infections. They occur in an estimated 2 % - 5 % of patients undergoing inpatient surgery. The estimated annual incidence of SSIs in the US ranges from 160,000 to 300,000, and the estimated yearly cost ranges from $3.5 billion to $10 billion. On average, a surgical site infection increases the hospital’s length of stay by 9.7 days. Thus, the increasing incidence of surgical site infections, leading to increased use of medical tapes and bandages is driving the market.
