The Growing Need For Combat Injuries Treatment Is Driving The Global Combat Dressing Market

A combat dressing, also known as battle dressing or field dressing, is used for treating injuries on the battlefield or other emergencies. It consists of sterile gauze and a bandage that is designed to stop severe bleeding from gunshot wounds or lacerations until medical attention can be provided. Combat dressings are lightweight and compact so that soldiers can carry them easily. They help in cleaning and protecting wounds from further contamination until evacuation to a medical facility. Some combat dressings also incorporate chemical hemostatic agents that accelerate clotting to control hemorrhaging.

The global Combat Dressing Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 5.53 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.4%  over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends

One of the key trends in the combat dressing market is the growing demand for hemostatic dressings. Hemostatic dressings incorporate chemicals or substances that accelerate blood clotting and help to control severe bleeding from open wounds. With the increasing risks of life-threatening hemorrhage from blast or ballistic injuries on the battlefield, hemostatic dressings are being preferred over conventional gauze dressings. Manufacturers are focusing on developing new formulations of hemostatic dressings that work faster and are effective even with continued bleeding. They are also making the dressings lighter and more user-friendly to apply under stressful conditions. This rising preference for advanced hemostatic dressings is expected to drive market growth over the forecast period.
