No Sting Barrier Consumption Analysis (2017-2021) Vs. Forecast Outlook (2022-2032)

Taking care of the skin and wounds in a comprehensive manner requires protecting them from moisture-induced damage. Since 1990, skin barriers for wounds were developed for the better protection of wounds and skin-related issues. This innovation brought new products into the skin barrier product line: no sting skin barriers that have several advantages over normal skin barrier products.

Barrier film made from terpolymer solves the problem of skin damage by eliminating the sting or any damage before it occurs. Also, product development and its use as a petrolatum content ointment alternative have helped escalate its use in the healthcare sector. This has guided a compound annual growth of 6.2% in no sting barrier sales over 2017-2021.

Furthermore, its permeability and susceptibility make it a better option for skin irritation, inflammation and dermatitis. Moreover, along with the several benefits of a no-sting barrier, market players are involved in product innovation by bringing in products in various forms such as spray, creams, wipes and foam applicators for ease of product handling.

In addition to serving as a barrier, no-sting barrier films protect the skin and prevent irritation or further complications in the areas of the skin fold, stoma, wound, and perineum.

  • Short Term (2022 Q2 to 2025): No sting barriers are recognized as an innovation in the skin barrier and skin protectants market. Inadequate product awareness limits their use, which will lead to slow growth during the initial phases of the forecast period at 1.2X.
  • Medium Term (2025-2028): High number of no sting barrier manufacturers in North America likely to support market growth over the medium term. The market is anticipated to provide an incremental $ opportunity of US$ 135.5 million from 2025 to 2028 in North America.
  • Long Term (2028-2032): Rising applications of no sting barriers such as use in infusion therapy and device securement will ascribe market growth in the long run. Fact.MR projects an incremental opportunity of US$ 204.3 million over 2028-2032.

During the 2017-2021 period, the global no sting barrier market registered a CAGR of 6.2%. Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, suggests that the market will reach US$ 707.5 million by 2032 expanding at a high CAGR of 7.2%.

Why are No String Barrier Products Gaining Immense Popularity?

“Protection against Infections & Quicker Wound Healing”

The prominent reason behind demand growth for no sting barriers is their benefits over normal skin barriers. Application of this zinc-oxide liquid formula on wounds or scars forms a transparent film that protects them from external moisture and dust. This film helps in quicker healing of the wound and protection against any potential infection.

“Increasing Incidence of Ostomy”

Additionally, rising number of ostomy patients is one of the key drivers of the no sting barrier market. In ostomy, no sting barriers play a vital role in protecting the skin around the stoma from the adhesive of a pouching system as well as from skin irritation and sores.

“Emergence of Innovative No String Barriers”

Manufacturers are focusing more on quality and the effective use of liquid barriers. The polymer content in its formulation forms a sting-free, waterproof, and transparent film to allow continuous visual evaluation and monitoring of the skin. Additionally, the coating is flexible and conforms to the skin during movements or position changes.

What are the Challenges Hampering No Sting Barrier Market Growth?

“Limitations of Using No String Barrier Films”

Some no sting barriers have alcohol and acetone content, which can burn or sting when applied. The use of these barriers comes with a limitation regarding the number of times one can apply the liquid that determines the thickness of the film.

Also, a dressing with the help of a no sting barrier leads to concerns, such as the lifting of edges may occur that allows moisture to get trapped, leading to bacterial allergies and infection. Allergic reactions to the adhesive may also occur.

The liquid or cream that forms the film also tends to melt and wash off, and inhibit the absorbing or the sticking of other devices on the skin.
