medical textiles market overview:

The global market for medical textiles is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 3.8% over the forecast period 2020-2025.

Health care textiles or medical textiles are one of the fast-growing sectors of the technical textile market. Textiles for pharmaceutical and medical devices range from simple bandages or gauze to scaffolds for tissue repair and a wide variety of prostheses for body implants. The use of medical textiles depends on its features like flexibility, absorption, filtering, softness, and others. Medical textiles are often categorized as implantable materials, non-implantable materials, sanitary and hygienic products and extracorporeal products. Medical textiles find applications in sectors like medical and biologics. They are applicable in first aid, rehabilitation, hygiene or for clinical purposes. Medical textiles are used for wound care, protecting the wound from infection, bandages and compressive clothing. Also, it is used for additional body and implantable material such as art.

A textile material specially designed and manufactured for medical applications such as implants, surgeries, first aid procedures and clinical treatments is called medical textile. Medical textile materials are made with high precision to avoid harming the human body; therefore, they are not toxic, biocompatible and non-allergenic. The use of these textiles depends on their properties, such as filtering, lightness, absorption and flexibility. Some of the medical textiles commonly used in our daily life are sanitary napkins, diapers, glasses and surgical clothing, such as mask, caps, robes, patient clothing and others.

 The growing population is supposed to be one of the main drivers of the global medical textiles market. Besides, changes in living standards and demographics are expected to improve the market growth. People now practice different methods of hygiene, using antiseptics for wound control, among others. Some of the constraining factors affecting the industry are high costs, unavailability of raw materials, and ignorance of hygiene among people in developing countries.

medical textiles market segmentation:

Based on raw materials, the world market for medical textiles is segmented into nonwoven, woven and knitted fabrics.

Nonwoven fabrics are cost-effective and known to be easily disposable when there is a high risk of infectious diseases, making it a dominant segment in the world market. Woven fabrics are generally dimensionally very stable but less elastic and porous than other structures. Knitted fabrics are very flexible compared to woven fabrics. With the latest innovations in textile technology, a wide variety of nonwoven and woven textile shapes are gradually finding their place in a variety of surgical procedures.

On the basis of end-use, the world market is segmented into implantable textiles, non-implantable textiles, hygiene products, and health products. Non-implantable materials include plaster, gauze, wadding, pressure bandage, elastic bandage, bandage, and others. Implantable products such as artificial ligaments, vascular grafts, and an extracorporeal device can be used within the human body. These textiles provide hygiene and protect the user from blood, urine, body fluids, saline, and other chemicals during surgery. The non-implantable product segment is the largest and most dynamic application of medical textiles. Globally, the incidence of injuries is increasing, fueling demand for medical textiles in the non-implantable product segment.

medical textiles market growth and trends:

The growing demand for nonwoven medical textiles for use as absorbent pads, incontinence products and clothing for patients and staff is driving rapidly growing income in the global medical textile market. Nonwovens are also widely used in baby diapers, burn dressings, bedding and blankets, disposable underwear, gowns, drug delivery devices, filter media, face masks, pillows, nasal strips, sponges and pillowcases, shoes, fabric scaffolding, sutures, towels and wraps. Nonwoven medical textiles are mainly made from natural fibers such as wood pulp and cotton, which provide biodegradable capabilities, absorbent benefits and aesthetic characteristics. 

 Low-cost synthetic fibers such as polypropylene, polyester and two-component fibers are also used in the preparation of nonwoven medical textiles which are generally used to enjoy advantages such as solvent resistance, product resistance and static dissipation during medical applications. The significant benefits of nonwovens in medical applications and a variety of product offerings have increased their adoption worldwide.

medical textiles market Drivers and Restraints:

The worldwide market for medical textiles is growing at a considerable rate due to the increasing number of surgeries and technological advances in the field of medicine. Factors such as cost-effectiveness, product innovations, increased awareness of nosocomial infections, growing need for better infection control, the increasing concern of patient protection, aging populations, and regulations are supporting this business growth. Increasingly stricter healthcare and patient safety professionals are driving the growth of the global medical textiles market.

Several factors, such as the increasing inclination towards high-performance medical textiles and the scale of market growth in developing countries, offer new avenues of growth for active players in the global medical textile testing market. The increase in the number of implants, surgeries, patients suffering from chronic diseases, and the rise in the number of accidents are other factors that stimulate the market for medical textiles. Furthermore, the growing awareness of hygiene and the growth of the pharmaceutical sectors should also encourage the world market for medical textiles. On the other hand, limited raw materials and stringent government regulations on the manufacturing process can slow the growth of the global market.
