Global Medical Textiles Market to Reach USD 17 Billion by 2026, Aided by the Growing Demand from the Asia Pacific Region

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Medical Textiles Market Report and Forecast 2021-2026’, the global market for medical textiles reached a value of USD 13 billion in 2020. The market is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 4% between 2021 and 2026 to reach a value of USD 17 billion by 2026.

The global medical textiles industry is being significantly aided by the growth in the Asia Pacific region. Emerging markets, such as China, India, South Korea, and Singapore, have become lucrative destinations for medical textile testing companies, which is influencing the overall medical textiles industry positively. A variety of factors, including a growing inclination towards highly efficient medical textiles and a rising market size in developing countries, are providing new avenues for growth for players in the global market for medical textiles. The Asia Pacific market also offers lucrative opportunities for the medical textiles industry due to the heightened spending on healthcare infrastructure and medical hygiene products, such as tissues and sanitary napkins.

In February 2017, Asahi Kasei (OTCMKTS: AHKSY), a key player in the industry, together with Textiles SBU, added a new production facility for Bemliese™ cupro continuous-filament non-woven fabric in Nobeoka, Miyazaki, Japan. Bemliese is the only non-woven cuprofilament fabric globally. It is comprised of cellulose regenerated fibre made of linter cotton and fibres around the seeds of cotton. These natural origins make Bemliese ideal for industrial as well as commercial use in a wide range of applications-in the fields of skincare and medical care.
