Surgical dressing contains a broad category of fibrous materials employed in the scientific and hygienic care of wounds, offering effective protection to exposed tissues. It refers to protective coverings applied to wounds, ranging from loose fibrous masses to fabrics, gauzes, lints, plasters, and other fiber-based materials.

The expansion of the surgical dressings market is propelled by multiple factors, such as the increasing incidence of chronic wounds, significant injuries, and diverse medical conditions necessitating surgical interventions for therapeutic purposes.

Effectively addressing chronic wounds and post-operative wounds presents challenges that require the use of advanced surgical dressings. The increased demand for sophisticated dressings in the market is a result of the growing need to manage complex wounds more efficiently.

The COVID-19 pandemic has a significant impact on the surgical dressing market. The strain on global healthcare systems, particularly in addressing COVID-19 cases, resulted in a heightened demand for surgical dressings. This surge was driven by the need for effective wound care solutions, emphasizing infection prevention and control measures.

Cardiovascular disease stands as a major challenge in contemporary society, arising from a sedentary lifestyle and obesity. There is an anticipated surge in demand for both surgical interventions and everyday remedies, such as bandages, for common treatments. The increasing geriatric population contributes to the expansion of the surgical dressing market. Additionally, the widening reach of healthcare services is anticipated to create greater prospects for participants in the surgical dressing market.

The process of altering dressings, inspecting and securing wounds sticks to the principles of asepsis. Typically, the initial dressing change is often performed by the physician, particularly in procedures such as craniotomy, orthopedic surgery, or thoracotomy. However, it becomes the nurse's duty to handle subsequent dressing changes. Surgical dressings serve multiple purposes, including shielding the wound from mechanical harm, absorbing drainage, preventing contamination from bodily discharges like feces and urine, offering mental and physical comfort to the patient, and creating a physiologically conducive environment for healing.
