Which Properties of Biomedical Textiles Augment their Need?

Due to excellent properties such as filtering, lightness, absorption, and flexibility, biomedical textiles are extensively used in manufacturing first-aid items such as wound dressings and bandages. Most importantly, these textiles are widely used for implants on patients in various medical treatments such as arterial grafts, artificial organ and other skin, sutures and ligatures, and artificial repair fabrics.

Since biomedical textiles are meant for hygienic health and personal care, they are non-toxic, biocompatible, and non-allergenic materials in nature that have a wide range of applications in daily-used products. Sanitary napkins, wipes, adult and baby diapers, and eye lenses are a few of the products that commonly use biomedical textiles for various walks of life.

Which Region Offers the Largest Opportunity for Biomedical Textile Manufacturers?

The Asia Pacific (APAC) region is projected to be the fastest-growing market for biomedical textiles during 2021 to 2031. Emerging markets of APAC, such as China, India, and Singapore, with increasing healthcare expenditure and rising disposable income, are expected to boost demand for biomedical textiles in healthcare. Further, rising expenditure on setting up technical textile plants will directly drive sales and demand for biomedical textiles.

For instance, the state government of Gujarat (India) intends to set up a technical textile mission that would attract an investment of around US$ 1.62 Bn for establishing 2,000 technical textile manufacturing facilities. Growth in the demand for technical textiles will therefore directly influence demand for biomedical textiles in the country.

Why are Non-woven Fabrics So Prominent in the Market for Biomedical Textiles?

Based on type of fabric, the non-woven fabric segment accounts for over 30% share of the market, and is also projected to expand at a CAGR of above 3% over the forecast period, owing to high demand from non-implantable applications such as gauze, cohesive, adhesive, tubular, and triangular bandages.

Non-woven fabrics are unique, high-tech, and engineered fabrics used across a wide range of applications and products. These fabrics offer superior performance properties, such as excellent absorption, softness, smoothness, strength, stretchability, comfort, fit, and cost-effectiveness.

Increasing awareness about the benefits of using this fabric type in the healthcare industry is expected to propel its demand through 2031.

Why are Non-implantable Biomedical Textiles Gaining Immense Popularity?

As per market insights on biomedical textiles, over 40% biomedical textile demand is stimulated by non-implantable applications. Non-implantable products are used for external application on the body with or without skin contact to provide protection against infection, absorption, exudation of blood & excess fluids, and healing.

Demand for biomedical textiles in non-implantable applications is mainly driven by increase in consumption of wound care products such as gauzes, adhesive bandages, cohesive bandages, and others. Increasing number of accidents and surgeries is driving the market for biomedical textiles for non-implantable applications.

How Has COVID-19 Impacted Demand for Biomedical Textiles?

With the rise of the COVID-19 pandemic, medical and healthcare departments are working at their peak levels to treat patients. This has led to advancements in technologies and products being used in healthcare.

Demand for biomedical textiles has grown during the pandemic, owing to the fact that, with the use of biomedical textiles, damaged tissues or organs can be treated. This is a result of advanced medical inventions related to biomedical textiles.

COVID-19 has created a desperate need for all advancements to cure the disease, health problems, and the virus itself. Raw material shortages are some of the challenges for the growth of the market; however, with increase in number of treated people and initiation of essential services, these challenges are expected to get eradicated slowly.

Governments are strongly supporting developments and advancements in the medical field for fighting against the virus, which, in turn, is benefiting the market for biomedical textiles. 2021 is projected to be better, with the market regaining its original traction by 2022.
