Revenue Analysis of Medical Adhesive Tapes (2017-2021) Vs. Market Growth Estimations (2022-2030)

Focus on healthcare has increased substantially in recent years owing to the high prevalence of chronic diseases and this has bolstered demand for medical products across the world. This is anticipated to primarily propel medical adhesive tape demand through 2030.

An increasing number of surgeries, growing prevalence of chronic diseases, rising focus on advanced wound care, increasing investments in healthcare infrastructure development, and advancements in adhesive technologies are other factors that are anticipated to favor medical adhesive tapes market potential over the next eight years.

Paper medical adhesive tapes, plastic medical adhesive tapes, and fabric medical adhesive tapes are slated to witness a steady increase in demand in the emerging economies of China, India, and Brazil, which can be ascribed to supportive government initiatives and investments in the development of healthcare infrastructure.

However, stringent regulatory mandates, volatile raw material prices, and increasing costs of manufacturing are some prospects that could constrain overall demand for medical adhesive tapes going forward.

From 2022 to 2030, the global medical adhesive tapes market is predicted to evolve at a healthy CAGR of 5.7%.

Medical adhesive tapes market forecast by Fact.MR

Which Prospects Govern Medical Adhesive Tapes Market Future?

“Increasing Number of Surgeries Being Performed Across the World”

The world has witnessed the advent of chronic diseases in recent years and this has led to an increasing number of surgeries being performed for the treatment of such diseases. Medical adhesive tapes are used to secure wound dressings and catheters, which makes them essential for pre and post-surgery applications.

The rising rate of hospitalization and increasing popularity of minimally invasive surgeries are also anticipated to drive up the number of surgeries performed over the coming years, which is projected to favor medical adhesive tape sales.

“Fluctuations in Commodity Prices Threatening Shipments of Medical Adhesive Tapes”

Medical adhesive tapes require raw materials such as silicone, rubber, adhesives, etc., which are mostly petroleum-derived raw materials. The prices of these raw materials are subject to fluctuations in the commodity market, and thus create uncertainty for medical adhesive tape manufacturers and hinder overall market potential over the years ahead.

Moreover, higher energy costs have also increased the overall manufacturing costs of raw materials as well as end products and this is also projected to restrain sales of healthcare adhesive tapes through 2030.
