The market concentration of China's medical dressing industry is gradually increasing. At the same time, the reform of the medical bidding system and the strengthening of industry supervision will also help promote the process of increasing market concentration. Changes in China's demographic structure, the improvement of the medical system and the increase in income levels have provided room for growth in the market for the medical dressing industry. From 2014 to 2018, the market size of China's medical dressing industry increased from RMB 5.52 billion to RMB 13.62 billion, with a compound annual growth rate of 25.3%. It is predicted that the market size of China's medical dressing industry will maintain a compound annual growth rate of 11.1% from 2019 to 2023, and the market size will reach 23.45 billion yuan in 2023.


Hotspot 1: Strengthening the willingness of patients to seek medical treatment to promote market expansion

The strengthening of patients' willingness to seek medical treatment has enabled the expansion of the Chinese medical market, and the use of medical dressings has increased accordingly. Taking surgery as an example, most of the cost of surgery is sensor-controlled medical consumables, and the increased number of surgeries will bring usage traffic to the medical dressing industry. The increase in the number of hospital admissions and operations in China reflects the increasing willingness of Chinese patients to seek medical treatment. In 2017, the number of hospital admissions nationwide reached 244.36 million, and the number of inpatient operations reached 55.96 million, with a five-year compound annual growth rate of 8.9%.

Hot spot 2: Industry upgrade is imminent

Large-scale medical dressing manufacturers in China continue to increase investment in research and development of high-end products, driving the structural transformation and upgrading of the entire industry. Through joint research and development with university research laboratories, participation in industry production standard discussions, and long-term cooperation with internationally renowned companies, large enterprises can timely recognize the frontiers of industry technology development, invest funds to establish research systems, and develop new technologies that meet market demand. and quality products.

The main application of the dressing

It is used in medical care, home self-help care, outdoor sports, field first aid, sports, postoperative care and various sports injuries. Swelling control after removal can achieve a certain recovery effect.

Performance Difference

The high water content of spring, summer, autumn and winter dressings is very different from traditional plasters.

(1) High comfort - moist and sticky, the position can be adjusted locally and microscopically at any time after application, without affecting the adhesion and the use of re-sticking. It will not form a glued state on the skin, and naturally there is no blemishes such as hair pulling, pain, local redness, itching, pimples, etc. when peeling off. The latter are traditional plasters.

(2) High extensibility - The non-woven fabric used in the dosage form is of good extensibility in any direction. When applied to joints with high mobility, the paste can fully expand and contract with the extension of joints and skin. It relieves the discomfort such as pulling and pulling of the plaster on the joints.

(3) High permeability - it can ensure that the contained drugs penetrate quickly into human skin in a short period of time, and quickly reach local tissues. The amount of drug contained in the paste is small, and the drug concentration detected in the local joint cavity fluid after application is far greater than the blood drug concentration. In a certain period of time, the application time is proportional to the drug concentration in the local joint cavity.

(4) High reliability - rarely cause allergic reactions and other uncomfortable reactions. Due to the single composition of the drug and the small molecular weight, users report that the plaster with larger molecular weight and lower water content is much safer. Years of clinical use surveys show that the allergic reaction to the product is only 2.3%.
