Demand Analysis of Stick to Skin Materials (2017-2021) Vs. Markets Forecasts (2022-2032)
As per latest market analysis by Fact.MR, a research and competitive acumen provider, demand for stick to skin materials over the recent past increased at a CAGR of around 5.3%. At the end of 2021, the global stick to skin materials market stood at around US$ 3.1 billion.
Stick to skin material consumption in wound dressing, secure IV lines, sports tapes, sanitary products, temporary bras, medical devices, and equipment adhesive materials is anticipated to rise over the next few years.
During the past few years, sales of stick to skin materials grew at a rapid pace owing to high demand for wearables devices. Owing to this, the athletics/sports and healthcare segments account for a combined market share of 60% in 2022.
Market players have been looking to expand their manufacturing capacities for skin-sensitive adhesives, which are proving to be vital alternatives to traditional adhesives.
Overall, the market for stick to skin adhesives is anticipated to grow 2X over the forecast period 2022-2032.
Why is the Popularity of Stick to Skin Materials Growing Rapidly?
“High Use of Stick to Skin Materials in Products that Need to Remain in Contact with the Skin”
Increase in the use of drug delivery devices, wearable health trackers, wearable medical devices, wound care dressings, and personal care products is the primary factor responsible for the demand growth of stick to skin materials.
An increase in home healthcare and other application areas such as drug-in-adhesives further contributes to the growth of the market. Likewise, the criticality of adhesives for the success of bonding and dressing or medical devices that require intimate contact on the skin surface with dressing and electrodes is accelerating the consumption of stick to skin materials.
Recent advancements in skin adhesives used in diagnostic devices carry complexity and higher weight of medical devices, which has driven the research on long-term reusable skin adhesives and has enhanced their cleansing protocols. These specific skin applications must have sufficient stickiness to hold the device in a proper position during the wearing time; also, it should not cause any trauma to the skin while removing the adhesive.
Additionally, an escalation in R&D investments towards incorporating newer materials and chemicals into existing processes, such as stick to skin rubber-like polymeric materials without an adhesive, will account for a rise in market growth.

What Do Stick to Skin Material Manufacturers Need to Watch Out For?
“Fluctuating Raw Material Prices & Strict Government Regulations”
Strict government regulations controlling the formulation of adhesive materials and fluctuating raw material prices may affect market growth negatively.
The most common failure of adhesives is their peeling. Failure of peeling in favourable conditions such as peel angle, withdrawal speed, contact pressure, peel rate, property of the substrate, humidity of the environment, and speed & temperature may limit market growth to an extent.
How is Demand for Stick to Skin Materials Shaping Up in the U.S.?
The United States is emerging as the most lucrative regional market for stick to skin materials. Key participants in the development of stick to skin materials in North America are relying on the well-established healthcare infrastructure in the region.
Over the past half-decade, a major proportion of the population in the country has shifted from nicotine to medical pressure-sensitive adhesive patches for pain relief and hormonal imbalance, which is likely to augment stick to skin material consumption in the United States.
Additionally, the benefits of non-invasive surgery, increasing aging population, and rising healthcare awareness are accountable for the growth of the stick to skin materials industry in the country.
The U.S. stick to skin materials market is expected to provide a high absolute dollar opportunity of US$ 692.4 million over the period 2022-2032, with North America accounting for over 30.3% of the global market share.
Why Does Germany Account for High Consumption of Stick to Skin Materials?
