Medical Adhesives Market to Generate Revenue Worth $16,367.2 Million by 2030

  • Published: June 2020

Rise in demand for medical disposable products, devices, and equipment is the major driver propelling the growth of the global medical adhesives market. This is ascribed to the rising number of patients that undergo surgery or long-term chronic care therapy, drug delivery, and other medical applications. Furthermore, rising concerns for infection prevention and several safety measures taken by hospital and other facilities have fueled the utilization of medical devices.

The high consumption of these products is expected to fuel the consumption of medical adhesives over the coming years, which have significant proportion in manufacturing of those products. Due to these factors, the global medical adhesives market is expected to generate $16,367.2 million revenue by 2030, advancing at a CAGR of 2.3% during the forecast period.

Furthermore, COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted many markets across the globe, but it has affected positively to the medical adhesives market, owing to high healthcare expenditure and high production of medical products and healthcare equipment, during this pandemic time.

Hot Melt & Other Solid to Hold the Largest Revenue Share in the Market throughout the Forecast Period

The medical adhesives market on the basis of technology is classified into water-based, solvent-based, and hot melt & other solids. Of these, the hot melt & other solids category is expected to lead the market in the coming years. This is ascribed to the various application areas of hot melt, reactive, and other type of solid adhesives, including dental operations, internal medical applications, and wound healing external medical application.

In addition, the flexibility offered by the hot melts to bond on both smooth and rough surfaces is one the major driving factors to help the category to grow rapidly in both historical and forecast period with significant CAGR.

The medical adhesives market in terms of application is categorized into internal medical application, external medical application, dental, medical devices & equipment, and others. The internal medical application is expected to hold the largest revenue share during the forecast period. This can be due to the high adoption of bio-adhesives in intracorporal conditions, which require direct contact to organs, tissues, and body fluids.

Geographically, the medical adhesives market in North America is expected to witness lucrative growth, owing to continuous requirement for the medical devices, equipment syringes, needles, thermometers, surgical suture, first-aid kits, stretchers, plastic tubes, PPE products, and several other medical supplies. The demand for these products is expected to increase with growing population in the region, which, in turn, would widen the growth potential of medical adhesives in the region.
