The global medical adhesive tapes market size was valued at USD 9.7 billion in 2023, driven by the increasing incidence of chronic wounds due to diabetic ulcers and injuries across the globe. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period of 2024-2032, likely to reach a value of about USD 17.0 billion by 2032.
A medical adhesive tape is used to secure dressings, tubing, and gauze to the skin. Most adhesive tapes are pressure sensitive since they enable easy sticking to the required place. Common medical adhesive tapes include paper, cloth and transparent and others. There are different categories of adhesive tape suited best for different conditions.
Medical adhesive tapes can be broadly categorized depending on the situation they are used in. For example, micropore paper and transpore polyethene tapes are used in urgent needs whereas zinc oxide and durable cloth tapes are applied on athletes. With the rising prevalence of chronic wounds, surgical procedures, and geriatric population globally, the adhesive technology has constantly evolved and improved, hence the medical adhesive tapes market value has also observed a significant upswing.
Supporting the ongoing trend of wearable devices, 3M has introduced a new 28-day medical adhesive skin tape called 3M Medical Tape 4578. This medical tape can increase the wearing time for a wide range of devices, including health monitors, sensors, glucose monitors and long-term medical wearables. The introduction of long wearing medical adhesives can expand its applications, fueling the market growth in upcoming years.
Tape removal can be painful and can also lead to skin damage due to collagen loss and dryness in patients. While silicone-based tapes are already used to avoid such wear and tears, researchers have been devising a new surgical tape to reduce pain, along with inhibiting skin damage during tape removal.
As per this new technique, the new surgical tape is applied in combination with a mesh. After conducting several trials, researchers concluded that the mesh paired tape reduced the pain sensation effectively. There is an ongoing development to improve the make it transparent and waterproof, which demonstrates that the medical adhesive tapes market demand will increase after the launch of this new category.

As the occurrence of road accidents and diabetic chronic wounds has propelled, medical adhesive tapes usage has also increased. The medical adhesive tapes market growth is certain in the forecast period, which can be attributed to significant mergers and acquisitions among industry leaders. In July 2024, Fuller Company acquired Adhezion Biomedical, a US based medical adhesives company with customers spanning across 40 countries. This diversifies the company’s portfolio and enables the growth of new innovations along with in-depth application expertise.
With the presence of a well-developed infrastructure and emergency care units, the United States holds a huge portion of the medical adhesive tapes market share. The US government also works on developing quality emergency facilities while spreading relevant awareness through campaigns. However, the AsiaPacific region also witnessing a rapid growth with the growing emphasis of the government to prevent road accidents.
