The global healthcare adhesive tapes market is forecast to reach USD 43.00 Billion by 2030, according to a new report by Reports and Data. Healthcare Adhesive Tape is a pressure-sensitive adhesive tape. Its primary use is in first aid and medicine for securing a dressing or bandage applied on a wound. Its high acceptance and application in the healthcare sector are associated to some of its mentionable traits like, it is hypoallergenic, designed in such a manner that allows it to stick on the skin firmly, and holding the dressing materials, and it is easily removable without the risk of skin damage. This type of adhesive tapes are breathable, allowing air to reach the skin like the Kinesiology Tape. Some of these breathable tapes are made of cotton. Tapes that are formed of a microporous material, like 3M Micropore, are widely used.
In spite of various traits of this adhesive tapes that have resulted in its extensive application in the healthcare sector, factors like the rise in awareness about advanced wound care products and elevated pricing pressure on industry players may act as a hindrance for the expansion of the market. At times, this type of adhesive tapes is contaminated with Multidrug-resistant organisms (MROs). Healthcare products like surgical drains, intravenous cannulae, and wound dressings are usually fixed using surgical adhesive tapes. It increases the risk of colonisation and infection. Tape rolls are also left lying on contaminated surfaces, used by various healthcare providers and cannot be disinfected. The mentioned risks of infection associated with the adhesive tape is an issue that is needed to be resolved for ascertaining continuous growth of the market.
In context to region, North America dominates the market. The rising geriatric population, increasing in the occurrence rate of chronic wounds, and technological developments in the healthcare sector are some of the contributing factors that are supporting the growth of the market in this region.
