Over 40% demand for biomedical textiles stimulated by non-implantable application: Study

Global biomedical textiles market to top US$ 6 Bn by 2031. Non-biodegradable, one of the segments, is projected to reach around US$ 4.5 Bn by 2031

New Delhi: A market research report projects the global biomedical textiles market to have a positive outlook, expanding at a CAGR of above 5% across the 2021-2031 forecast period. As per the report, over 40% demand for biomedical textiles is stimulated by non-implantable application.
Biomedical textiles refer to fabric materials that are primarily designed and produced for the use of medical purposes and applications such as implants, surgeries, first-aid procedures, and clinical treatments. These textiles are commonly used in the medical field as surgical apparel such as masks, caps, operating gowns, patient clothing, operating drapes, sterilization packs, dressings, and orthopedic pads.
These textiles allow the materials to protect users against bacterial effects from blood, urine, bodily fluids, saline, and other chemicals during a surgery. Surgeons and clinicians are increasingly turning to biomedical textiles to replace and aid damaged body parts.
The healthcare industry, focused on providing better facilities and advancing technologies for better treatments, is demanding more biomedical textiles. As such, demand for biomedical textiles is showing sufficient promise for the years ahead.
