What is the Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Medical Tape Industry?

The COVID-19 pandemic affected the medical tape industry in a negative way, like various other medical supplies industries were affected. The wound care services were denied & delayed and even cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, the number of elective surgeries performed in pandemic also was reduced. According to the survey of Wiley Online Library, in 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic impaired access to clinical management of chronic wounds in Germany. Moreover, according to the study by Cutis Care USA, in 2020, the non-essential businesses with medical providers included, were ordered to shut down their businesses. Unfortunately, this meant many outpatient wound care centers were deemed “non-essential.” For patients with non-healing wounds, this resulted in limited access to treatment or management that could have been life-threatening or increase risk of dangerous infections, sepsis, and amputation.
