Medical textiles: markets, applications, developments and regulations


Report summary

The market for medical textiles is set to benefit from a number of factors which will make it one of the fastest growing categories within the technical textiles sector. Such factors include: ageing populations in developed countries; growing middle classes and rising disposable incomes in several developing countries; the introduction of new products; and increasing awareness among patients regarding innovative wound care applications.

Medical textiles are used in a broad range of applications-including adhesive tapes, compression garments, wound care dressings, surgical meshes, bedding and surgical gowns. Furthermore, the number of applications in which medical textiles can be used is continuing to grow as advances in technologies open up new opportunities. In particular, much research and development work is being carried out in the areas of nanocomposites and in materials whose properties can be changed in a controlled manner in response to stimuli.

Furthermore, new products are being developed to comply with new regulations, including the EU's Medical Devices Regulation (MDR). This report provides an analysis of the market for medical textiles and examines trends in the market through to 2025.

Also, it includes descriptions of the properties and applications of medical textiles, key areas of research and development in the medical textiles sector, and the implementation of the MDR in the EU.
