Low trauma/skin care adhesives ensure secure bonding of dressing to skin to promote rapid healing and offer pain-free removal without damaging skin. Nonsilicone pressure-sensitive adhesive technology enables patient comfort, enhanced moisture management, and extended wear times. Wound care product manufacturers utilize silicone-based ingredients & formulations to develop low trauma/skin-friendly adhesives for dressings, surgical tapes, and bandages. These adhesives are not only utilized to alleviate pain while removal but also to prevent exacerbation of existing wounds and creation of new wounds. Moreover, they are utilized for wearable & attachable medical devices and transdermal patches, as they are easily repositionable and provide maximum comfort.
Rise in use of wound care dressings, drug delivery devices, and wearable medical devices among consumers is the primary factor that drives the growth of the low trauma/skin-friendly adhesives market growth. Increase in application areas, surge in home healthcare demand, and rise in healthcare outsourcing trend further supplement the market growth.
