Market Dynamics

The medical adhesives market is biocompatible; their non-irritating, non-sensitizing, and non-cytotoxic properties have expanded their application to medical devices. In addition, silicone adhesive hydrophobic properties make it suitable for use in devices that are worn during water sports, like swimming and diving. The benefits and features of silicone adhesives have increased their popularity. In addition, the demand for medical devices increases as a result of growing consumer awareness of health and wellness. The effect of modern wellness on customers in terms of fitness and a balanced lifestyle drives the market for wearable medical devices. The strong binding properties of medical adhesives and glass substrates serve as an excellent barrier to oxygen and moisture permeation. These factors have bolstered the growth of the global market for medical adhesives.

Growing prevalence of chronic diseases, such as diabetes and cardiovascular disorders, has increased the use of wearable smart medical devices, as wearable devices provide information on blood pressure, breathing patterns, and blood glucose levels.
