Chemical and Materials Healthcare Adhesive Tapes Market

The Healthcare Adhesive Tapes Market is estimated to grow at a CAGR 5.84% rate during the forecast period attributed to increasing demand for primary treatment of wounds by covering and securing, to prevent bacterial infections, and to hold bandages in place. It comes in a variety of lengths and widths that are designed to meet bandaging needs. Increasing use of these tapes in wound care and for surgery in emerging economies such as India, China, Thailand, Indonesia, Brazil, and Argentina is expected to boost the growth of the overall market.On the basis of backing material, fabric tapes offers the benefits of high strength, flexibility, and elasticity, and durability which results in largest market share of this segment during the forecast period. Fabric tapes are water resistant and hence used for securing dressings, catheters, tubing, and other medical purposes as they are useable on body areas such as the biceps, which expand and contract with movement. Owing to their fabric backing, doctors or surgeons can mark them with pens to tag surgical scrubs and other equipment.

By application adhesive tape bandages are used on fragile or at-risk skin, as well as in moist skin. These bandages are air permeable, allow outside air to penetrate and reach the underlying dressing or skin, creating a "breathable" healing and act as support solution. These tapes are also used for the delivery of infusion f the drug over a period of time and can be terminated any time by removing the patch. The bandage adhesive tapes are similar to wound tapes and consist active pharmaceutical ingredients and adhesives which deliver the drugs to the body via human skin.

APAC has emerged as the one of the leading consumers and producers of healthcare adhesive tapes in the recent years. The easy availability of low-cost labor and economical & accessible raw materials are inviting foreign investments, thereby increasing the production of healthcare adhesive tapes in the region. India is experiencing rapid transformation and growth, mainly driven by infrastructure development, changing lifestyle and buyers’ preferences and hence is expected to register fastest growth rate among other countries in the region.
