DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Biomedical Textiles Market by Fiber Type, Fabric Type, Application, and Region - Global Forecast to 2022" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The biomedical textiles market is estimated to be USD 10.99 billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 14.50 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.7% between 2017 and 2022.
The increasing demand for biomedical textiles in bandages, surgical sutures, implants, and extracorporeal devices is one of the most significant factors driving the growth of the biomedical textiles market. The rise in the number of aging population and the increasing number of surgeries have also contributed to the growth of the biomedical textiles market. However, the need for high R&D investments is restraining the growth of the biomedical textiles market.
Based on fabric type, the non-woven fabric segment accounted for the major share of the biomedical textiles market in 2016 and is also projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to the high demand from non-implantable applications, such as gauze, cohesive, adhesive, tubular, and triangular bandages. Non-woven fabrics are unique, high-tech, and engineered fabrics used across a wide range of applications and products. Increasing awareness and the benefits of using this fabric type in the healthcare industry is expected to propel its demand between 2017 and 2022.
Based on application, the non-implantable segment of the biomedical textiles market is expected to register the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2022. The demand for biomedical textiles in the non-implantable application is mainly driven by an increase in consumption of wound care products, such as gauzes, adhesive bandages, cohesive bandages, and others. The increasing number of accidents and surgeries is driving the market for biomedical textiles in non-implantable applications.
Based on fiber type, the non-biodegradable segment is estimated to dominate the biomedical textiles market in 2017. The dominance can be attributed to the growing demand for non-biodegradable fibers, such as polypropylene, polyethylene, polyamide, and polyester, in non-implantable applications. These fibers are also widely used in many surgical sutures, implants, and extracorporeal devices.
