DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 4, 2023--

The “Global Medical Tapes Market Size, Segments, Outlook, and Revenue Forecast 2022-2028 by Product Type, Application, Distribution Channel, and Region” report has been added to’s offering.

Global Medical Tapes Market is estimated to have grown to a size of ~US$1.5 billion in 2022 from ~US$1 billion in 2017. The market is expected to grow further to a size of ~US$2 billion by 2028 at a CAGR of ~6% during the forecasting period of 2022-2028.

The growth can be attributed to the rise in Healthcare Acquired Infections, the increasing number of wounds, burns, injuries, and accidents reported at healthcare facilities, the availability of advanced products, and rising awareness among patients and physicians about the benefits of good-quality medical tapes.

Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAI) get transmitted while receiving treatment at a healthcare facility. These infections are capable of doing long-term damage to a person’s health by affecting one’s bloodstream, lungs, skin, urinary or digestive tract. Apart from performing inspections of healthcare facilities and hospitals at frequent intervals, there is hardly any other proactive measure to stop these infections from spreading.


The proper use of medical tapes, in compliance with the storage and usage guidelines issued by public health authorities across countries and regions, can reduce the spread of Healthcare Acquired Infections. Simple innovations like single-use, individually packaged medical tapes have proven to be especially effective in minimizing the risk of HAI, resulting in a steady rise in the market.

Businesses and individual scientific researchers are consistently active in making better-quality medical tapes. For instance, the Durapore Advanced Tapes by 3M, one of the key players in this market, has addressed three critical areas that make a medical tape successful. These areas/aspects include adhesion to tubing, adhesion to the skin in presence of moisture, and edge lift.

According to a report published in the University of Washington website in 2022, Professor Eric Siebel, a UW researcher in Mechanical Engineering, has been successful at developing tapes that would stick strongly to the skin and yet become conveniently non-sticky when it comes to removal. Such innovations, resulting in the frequent launch of efficient products, have helped the market for medical tapes to grow in size.


Despite moderate and steady growth, factors that limit the market’s potential include the lack of adequate guidelines on the use of medical tapes and the occurrence of Medical Adhesive Related Skin Injuries (MARSI). These injuries may fall into the categories of mechanical, dermatitis, and other types, and persist 30 minutes or more after the removal of the adhesive. While a mechanical MARSI may be caused by the force applied in removing the tape, the dermatitis type of injury can be allergic or non-allergic. Other types of MARSI include maceration and folliculitis.


During the initial phase of the COVID-19 outbreak, healthcare facilities, including hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers, witnessed a significant decline in the number of surgeries. Across several geographies, severe dips were noted in the number of elective surgical procedures.

This fall in demand resulted in lesser uptake of medical and healthcare consumables, including medical tapes. However, as the pandemic-induced restrictions started easing out, the market for medical tapes, along with other consumables, witnessed a rebound with resumed treatments and reappointed surgeries.
