The growing number of surgeries performed worldwide is propelling the abdominal pads market forward. This is due to an increase in chronic illnesses that necessitate surgery. The growing incidence of serious burn cases has fueled the industry's expansion. The market has also grown as the number of caesarean deliveries has increased. In the long run, however, the possibility of surgical site infections and peri-wound maceration may limit market expansion. The growing awareness of the usefulness of abdominal pads in preventing wound infection, and the advancement of healthcare facilities, are likely to drive industry expansion throughout the forecast period.
The North American region is expected to dominate the abdominal pads market due to its exceptional healthcare facilities. An increase in the usage of abdominal pads for surgical infections and wounds will further work in favour of the market growth. The Asia Pacific is also expected to be a profitable region for the abdominal pads market due to their increasing surgical procedures and demand for better wound infections. In addition, the large population in the area further aids the growth of the abdominal pads industry in the Asia Pacific.
