The adhesive bandages play a primary role in stopping bleeding and prevention of infections. Depending upon the application areas of a body, there are four major types of bandages used plastic, fabric, foam and tricot. With a growing number of skin injuries particularly in old age and very young ages, drive the importance of adhesive bandages. There are an increased number of skin diseases and surgical procedures performed across a large number of hospitals and multi-specialty centers, which also demand improved capabilities of bandages used for healing of infection or wounded area of a body. Therefore, steady growth has been observed in the type of bandages used for adhesive purposes. Such factors drive the adhesive bandages market, over the forecast period.
