Biomedical Textiles Market: Summary
The Global Biomedical Textiles Market is expected to register a CAGR of 4.8%, reaching a value of around USD 18 Billion by the end of 2027.
Biomedical textiles are fibrous structures designed for use in specific biological environments, where their performance depends on biocompatibility with cells and biological tissue or fluids. They are used for first aid, clinical, or hygienic purposes. In addition to protective medical apparel, textiles in fiber and fabric form are used as implants, filters, and surgical dressings. These textiles should be non-toxic, non-carcinogenic, non-allergic, and chemically inert as well as should exhibit high strength, durability, and flexibility.
The biomedical textiles include sutures, vascular grafts, heart valves, hernia mesh, tissue implants, nerve guidance channel, corneal lenses, artificial skin, artificial joints, heart patch, and biomedical smart clothes.
Biomedical Textiles Market: Drivers & Opportunity
- Rising Number of Surgeries
Growing number of surgeries across the globe is a key driver of global biomedical textiles. These textiles are used in implantable products such as sutures, hernia repair, as well as cardiovascular implants, among others. According to the US Food and Drug Administration, more than 1 million hernia procedures are performed in the US every year. Moreover, the demand for cardiovascular implants is projected to increase during the review period. This is attributed to the increasing prevalence of sedentary diseases such as obesity, diabetes, cancer, and others.
In addition to this, biomedical textiles are used in a mechanical organ such as artificial kidney (dialysis), artificial livers, artificial lungs (blood oxygenation) for blood purification and are called as extracorporeal devices.
Therefore, rising number of surgeries across the world is projected to drive the global biomedical textiles market.
- Use of Biomedical Textiles in Hygiene Products
Biomedical textiles are used as protective clothing to prevent contamination by blood and other fluids. They are extensively used in gowns, caps, wipes, drapes, beddings, sanitary napkins, and others. Demand for such protective clothing is expected to increase due to international travel, medical tourism, and rising awareness amongst the consumers. According to the Centers for Disease Control, Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAIs) account for an estimated 1.7 million infections and 99,000 associated deaths each year in America.
Thus, demand for biomedical textiles in hygiene products is likely to propel the market growth during the assessment period.
- Introduction of Electronic Textiles
Electronic textiles (e-textiles) are fabrics that have electronics and interconnections woven into them. An electronic textile refers to a textile substrate that incorporates capabilities for sensing (biometric or external), communication (usually wireless), power transmission, and interconnection technology to allow sensors, etc. E-textiles can be used to study and scrutinize cardiovascular, respiratory, and neurological disorders.
The growing health care needs and awareness with the introduction of leading-edge technologies in the healthcare sector is likely to open up growth avenues for players in this market.
