A recent research report published by Grand View Research, Inc. suggests that the global medical tapes and bandages market would reach a valuation of USD 10.97 billion by 2025. High incidences of chronic diseases and injuries and rise in surgical procedures are expected to propel the demand for medical taps and bandages. Growing demand for advanced wound care products due to rising cases of diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, and venous stasis ulcers would drive the market during the forecast years (from 2018 to 2025).
Increasing geriatric population base, which is prone to skin sensitivity, is also expected to boost the market growth in the near future. Rising cases of skin inflammation and trauma conditions caused due to dressing as a result of skin sensitivity would also fuel the market growth as it demands highly advanced dressing products. The wound caused by surgery, burns, or trauma generally leads to an infection. Thus, high incidences of wound infection are also likely to increase the demand for advanced wound dressing in the future. On the other hand, side effects on the skin caused due to the wound dressing techniques is considered as one of the major restraining factors for the global market.

Geographically, the market is divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa (MEA). In 2016, North America acquired the maximum share due to the presence of a large pool of target population and high awareness among people regarding diseases and wound infections, particularly in the US. As per statistics by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), chronic wounds affected around 5.7 million patients in US in the early 2017.
Asia Pacific is estimated to expand at the highest growth rate from 2018 to 2025 on account of availability of numerous growth opportunities, especially in the emerging countries including Japan and China.
