The demand for medical adhesive tapes has been increasing rapidly in applications such as surgeries, wound dressings, secure IV lines, splints, and ostomy seals, among others. The rising number of surgeries and high demand for medical products in the Asia Pacific are the key factors contributing to the growth of the medical adhesive tapes market.  The global medical adhesive tapes market is estimated at USD 6.64 Billion in 2017, and is projected to reach USD 8.76 Billion by 2022

Medical adhesive tapes are needed to hold on a wound cover, elastic roll gauze or non-elastic roll gauze to the wound. These tapes are used in every hospital setting from ER, ICU, IV department to physical therapy and radiology.  An example of this type of adhesive is 3M Medipore Dress-It.
