IV Dressing acts as a quick fixation dressing to secure intramuscular catheters, the I.V. cannula, and other percutaneous devices. It is a translucent or transparent type of dressing made up of polyurethane collated films and adhesive material, it prevents bacterial infection and prevents moisture buildup to protect against germs and dust. Thus, there is an increasing demand for IV dressing worldwide. For example, in July 2018, 3M launched Tegaderm Antimicrobial I.V. Advanced Securement Dressing and Tegaderm Antimicrobial Transparent Dressing to enhance its PIV maintenance solution offerings and help reduce infection risk.
Rising incidences of infections such as central line associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI), catheter-related bloodstream infection (CRBSI), and other infections are expected to boost growth of the I.V. Dressing Market over the forecast period. For instance, according to the data published in National Healthcare Safety Network’s Bloodstream Infection Surveillance in March 2018, around 30,000 CLABSI cases are reported every year in the U.S. CLABSI infection can prolong the hospital stay of the patients, which can increase the cost burden on patients and may also lead to mortality.
