Growth Factors:

The rising number of surgeries, increasing incidence of chronic wounds, and rising geriatric population are the major factors that are expected to drive the growth of the medical tapes and bandages market during the forecast period. However, the rising awareness about advanced wound care products is expected to restrain market growth in the coming years.

Medical Tapes and Bandages Market Dynamics

Driver: Growing prevalence of diseases and conditions affecting wound healing capabilities

Chronic wounds mainly include wound such as diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, venous leg ulcers, and other chronic wounds. A diabetic foot ulcer is a major complication of diabetes. As diabetes slows down the healing process, all types of ulcers, other chronic and acute wounds, even minor cuts, take time to heal, prolonging treatment type, which in turn increases consumption of medical tapes and bandages used for dressings and re-dressings. In addition, due to prolonged healing time, in some cases, even minor cuts turn into chronic wounds, further increasing the demand for dressings.

Below mentioned are some important statistics related to the major complications associated with diabetes:

  • According to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), the global diabetic cases will increase from 415.0 million in 2015 to 642.0 million by 2040.
  • The CDC estimates that one in three American adults will have diabetes by 2050.
  • The risk of amputation is 25 times more in diabetic patients than those without diabetes (Source: IDF).
  • It also reported that more than 100 million adults in the US alone are diabetic or prediabetic. Nearly 25% of diabetics in the US develop foot ulcers during their lifetime, while as much as 15% of the total diabetic population suffers from diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs).

Restraint: Rising awareness about advanced wound care products

Advanced wound care accelerates the healing process for many chronic wounds by providing and promoting a moist environment. As basic/traditional wound care products take a large amount of time for healing of wounds and are less effective in certain types of wounds, advanced wound care products are being used as first-line therapy wherever infection control and healing speed are major concerns. Considering their effectiveness, coupled with the limitations of basic/traditional wound dressings, advanced and active wound care products are expected to cannibalize the market for medical bandages and tapes in the coming years.

Opportunity: Growth potential in emerging economies

Emerging markets such as China, India, Brazil, and Mexico are expected to offer significant growth opportunities to players operating in the medical tapes and bandages market. This can primarily be attributed to the rising trend of medical tourism in these emerging countries. The availability of high-quality surgical treatments at lower costs is the key factor attracting patients towards these countries for undergoing elective surgeries. The increasing popularity of cosmetic surgeries and developing healthcare infrastructure in emerging countries are the other major factors that are expected to offer growth opportunities to market players. In order to leverage the high growth opportunities for medical tapes and bandages in emerging markets, manufacturers are strategically focusing on expanding their presence in these markets.

Regulatory policies in the Asia-Pacific region are more adaptive and business-friendly due to the less stringent regulations and data requirements. Moreover, the increasing competition in mature markets will further compel the manufacturers of medical tapes and bandages to focus on emerging markets.

Challenge: Increasing pricing pressure on market players

In response to the increasing government pressure for reducing healthcare costs, several healthcare providers have aligned themselves with group purchasing organizations (GPOs) and integrated health networks (IHNs). These organizations aggregate the purchasing volume of their members and bargain for a competitive price with suppliers as well as manufacturers of surgical devices. GPOs and IHNs negotiate heavily for the bulk purchase of surgical products.

For instance, IPC Group Purchasing (IPC) supplies medical products, including bandages, dressings, medical tapes, and many other products from 3M, Covidien, ConvaTec, CareFusion, Welch Allyn, and a number of other companies to its network of 21 hospitals. Due to high volume purchases, IPC negotiates with its suppliers for prices and transfers the benefits to its customers as well. As a result, through bulk purchasing, IPC supplies all medical products at around 15% lesser price to its customers.

This bulk purchasing trend is increasing the pricing pressure on market players and decreasing their profit margins. Furthermore, small and medium-sized manufacturers that offer a limited range of medical tapes and bandages are facing a significant burden owing to the increasing power of GPOs and IHNs in the US. However, it is expected that the rising focus on the development of low-cost products will reduce the impact of this challenge to a certain extent in the coming years.
