Growth Factors

More healthcare professionals and patients can now track their key health indicators, such as blood pressure and heart rate, thanks to wireless technology propelling the wearable skin adhesives industry. Additionally, rising smartphone usage that also aids in identifying health risk factors and growing awareness of the prevention of chronic diseases are drivers in the market’s expansion.

Another element anticipated to propel the wearable skin adhesives market is consumers’ rising focus on physical health. Wearable skin adhesive sales are surging as a result of increased government campaigns to increase awareness of the prevention of obesity, which can result in the emergence of chronic illnesses on a national scale.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a very favorable effect on the industry. There was a growing emphasis on personal health among patients and other people because a sizable number of patients with chronic diseases were at a high risk of contracting the virus or becoming ill from it.

Additionally, many patients with diabetes and high blood pressure had to monitor their blood sugar and blood pressure levels to avoid hospitalization and any serious consequences due to the temporary closure of most services and changes in healthcare priorities. As economies stabilize, the wearable skin adhesives market is anticipated to grow even more over the coming years.

Segmental Overview

The market for Wearable Skin Adhesives is segmented into product, application, and end-user.

By application, due to its extensive usage across various sensitive and delicate skin types, the silicone-based sector had the greatest market share of over 50.0% in 2022. Silicone is simple to work with and virtually painless to remove. Additionally, it has a long lifespan because of its chemical stability and resistance to moisture and the elements. In most situations, silicone-based adhesives are the best choice because they create a solid, long-lasting bond. For this reason, manufacturers in the industry are always attempting to introduce new silicone-based goods.

Regional Overview

A vast patient pool, a growing elderly population, a move towards sedentary lifestyles, and rising healthcare costs are all contributing factors that will cause the Asia Pacific to experience the fastest growth in the wearable skin adhesives market throughout the projection period.

The International Diabetes Federation estimates that 90 million adults in the South-East Asia Region will have diabetes in 2022, which will rise to 113 million by 2032. Additionally, it was noted that in 2022, US$ 10 billion was spent on healthcare for diabetics, which is the second-lowest amount of any other region.
