Medical tapes and medical bandages are a type of healthcare equipment mainly used as tools to patch up wounds and stop blood loss from hurting oneself. This equipment is quite often used with surgeries to seal sutures and cuts. These tapes and bandages cover and properly constrain the wounded area to seal it tight and not allow any external environmental sources that could impart bacteria or viruses and cause infections in the injured area.

Therefore, the need for medical tapes and bandages significantly reduced during the pandemic, along with orthopedic surgical procedures. However, the market is expected to bounce back in the post-covid era as their need is still essential to society.
