Biomedical Textiles Market by Fiber Type

By fiber type, the biodegradable segment dominated the global market in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.4% during the forecast period. There is growing awareness of the environmental impact of non-biodegradable materials, including synthetic fibers, which can persist in the environment for extended periods and contribute to pollution and waste accumulation. Biodegradable fibers offer a more sustainable alternative as they can naturally decompose and break down into non-harmful components over time, reducing their impact on ecosystems and waste management.

In addition, biodegradable fibers are often made from natural polymers, such as cellulose, chitosan, or collagen, which are inherently biocompatible. These fibers can integrate well with the body's tissues and facilitate tissue regeneration and healing without causing adverse reactions or foreign body responses. This factor is projected to boost the market demand during the forecast period.

Biomedical Textiles Market by Fabric Type

By fabric type, the woven fabrics segment dominated the global market in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period. This is due to the factor such as, woven fabrics offer excellent structural integrity and stability. The interlacing of warp and weft yarns creates a strong and stable fabric structure that can withstand the stresses and strains encountered in various biomedical applications, such as surgical meshes, wound dressings, or orthopedic supports.

Woven fabrics often have inherent breathability due to the natural spaces between the interlaced yarns. This breathability allows for air circulation and moisture management, making woven fabrics more comfortable for patients in applications such as wound dressings or garments.

Biomedical Textiles Market by Application

In 2022, the implantable segment was the largest revenue generator, and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 53% during the forecast period.  Biomedical textiles are used in cardiovascular implants such as stents, heart valves, and vascular grafts. Textile-based stents provide support and maintain vessel patency after angioplasty, while textile-covered heart valves and vascular grafts offer durability, biocompatibility, and improved hemodynamics.

In addition, Biomedical textiles can be engineered to incorporate drug delivery functionalities. They can be designed to release drugs or therapeutic agents over time, allowing for controlled and localized delivery to specific implant sites. This factor is expected to boost the market growth during the forecast period.
