Absorbent & Packing Gauze Surgical Dressings Market Overview
The Absorbent & Packing Gauze Surgical Dressings Market size is estimated to reach $3,098 million by 2027. Furthermore, it is poised to grow at a CAGR of 4.4% over the forecast period of 2022-2027. Absorbent and packing gauze is a cotton fabric with a wide range of thread counts and weights that is commonly used in surgical dressing. A surgical dressing or wound packing is a procedure of packing a wound to avoid microbial infection and necrotic spread. Wounds are tissue injuries including cuts, scratches, pierced skin, and scrapes that are commonly caused by accidents, burns, and strenuous activities like sports. Absorbent gauze is occasionally recommended for use on deep wounds to aid healing by preventing the formation of abscesses. Gauze for absorbent and packaging purposes is available in a variety of sizes (lengths and widths) and shapes (rolls and folds). Wounds, burns, and ulcers are treated using surgical enrichment/dressings. Hundreds of wound dressings are available on the market now to help with wound care. Before choosing a dressing for a specific wound, a practitioner must thoroughly examine the patient's needs to determine which dressing would provide the most benefit. Wound dressings help to provide an environment for moist wound healing. Desiccation of a wound is a major factor in retarding wound healing and increasing scarring. Dressings that prevent desiccation provide an optimal environment for autolysis cell migration, granulation, and re-epithelialization. Surgical cotton swabs are available in different folds and can also be customized as per the client's requirement. Surgical dressings also help to protect the wound from further damage (mechanical damage, microbial invasion, dehydration, maceration, chemical damage, alteration in pH).
The rising number of surgical procedures gives rise to the demand for surgical dressings including wound dressings which are fueling the growth of the Absorbent & Packing Gauze Surgical Dressings market.

Absorbent & Packing Gauze Surgical Dressings Market - Drivers
The Rising Number Of Surgical Procedures Gives Rise To The Demand For Surgical Dressing That Has Readily Aided the Market Growth
According to the Department for Surgery, more than 13 million U.S. surgical procedures occurred in 2020. Surgical procedures are medical treatments that involve making an incision with instruments and doing them in an operating room with anesthesia and/or respiratory support. Surgical procedures can be done as inpatient, day, or outpatient treatments, depending on the circumstances. Nowadays, the number of surgeries increases rapidly which further soars the demand for surgical dressing. In recent years, many surgical procedures traditionally performed only in hospitals or similar institutions have increasingly been performed in physicians’ offices or freestanding surgical facilities. This trend has produced cost savings and convenience for patients as well as health care providers. Surgical care has been an essential component of health care worldwide. The growing number of surgeries can be attributed to the rapidly growing senior population worldwide and the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases. Technological advancements in the healthcare industry and an upsurge in preference for hassle-free surgical procedures such as robotic surgery, laparoscopic surgery, and others are soaring the demand for surgical dressings. Latest technological advancements have assisted minimally invasive surgery which allows precise control over the surgery. This has resulted in higher success rates by ensuring greater accuracy, repeatability, control, and efficiency of these procedures. Owing to such factors, the demand for surgical dressings increases which in turn is fuelling the growth of the Absorbent & Packing Gauze Surgical Dressings Market
The Rising Number of Ulcers among Patients Soars the Need for Surgical Dressings Which is Driving the Market Growth
According to the National Institute of Health, about 4 million people have active peptic ulcers and about 350,000 new cases are diagnosed each year in 2020.

Owing to increasing intake of a steady fast-food diet, people are suffering from burning, gnawing abdominal pain of a peptic (or gastric) ulcer at some point in life. Ulcers are holes or breaks in the protective lining of the duodenum (the upper part of the small intestine) or the stomach areas that come into contact with stomach acids and enzymes. Duodenal ulcers are more common than stomach ulcers. Owing to the rising number of ulcers people are diagnosed with, various surgical procedures are recommended which in turn enlarges the demand for surgical dressings thereby fuelling the growth of the Absorbent & Packing Gauze Surgical Dressings Market.
Absorbent & Packing Gauze Surgical Dressings Market - Challenges
The High Cost of Surgical Dressings Is One Of The Factors Impeding The Market Growth
According to the Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa Association (DEBRA), more than $3.7million was spent on surgical dressings and bandages for treatment in a group of 60 people which is very expensive.
