Growing number of fatal injuries in sports and road accidents: a major market driver
First aid is majorly used in road accident injuries and sports-related injuries globally. Patients must undergo surgeries to treat dislocations and fatal fractures sustained while playing sports or in road accidents. Alcohol prep pads are used for sterilizing the skin surface to administer injections or for any incisions before applying first aid.
Some of the reasons for extremity surgeries include corrections of dislocations, regeneration of bones, and repositioning of bones. Alcohol prep pads are used to disinfect the wound or clean the surface where the incision is to be made during surgical procedures. Alcohol prep pads are essential for any surgical procedure to avoid bacterial contamination, and this is driving the demand for alcohol prep pads in the market.
