Casting tape is a biomedical textile used for long-term pressure on fractured bones and ligaments. Casting tape is used to make splints, which restrict bone movement while the injury recovers. It is a multi-layered bandage used to prevent broken or injured bones from moving so that they can heal correctly. It supports the muscles of injured limbs and reduces the pain and swelling. Casting tape wraps a limb or other larger injured body part to stabilize it and hold them in normal anatomical structure or in an appropriate position until the bone has healed. Bone deformity can arise due to failure in treating a fracture properly, with a number of other complications. A cast is wrapped around the broken area and is removed by the doctor within 4 to 10 weeks when the bone is healed, depending on the age of the patient, type of injury, or healing time required. Casting tapes are now available in a range of different colours.
Despite having a capacity of healing themselves, delayed union or a nonunion occurs when a broken bone does not heal. Rise in incidence rates of fractures, diabetic foot ulcers, sports injuries, and affordability of casting tapes are the major factors expected to drive the global Casting Tape Market during the forecast period. However, limitations such as skin irritation and no water-resistance feature of certain types of cast tapes are likely to restrain the global casting tape market during the forecast period.
