Global medical textiles market: Growing demand for nanofibers in the medical industry
Nanofibers are an important class of one-dimensional nanomaterials that are being used in many medical applications. Nanofibers are manufactured using biocompatible or biodegradable materials that have a high potential in the biomedical and healthcare sectors owing to their unique properties and functionalities.
Nanofibers consists of a high surface area and porosity, which helps enhance the adhesion of cells as well as various proteins and drug molecules. These attributes make them superior to their micro and macro counterparts composed of the same materials. Tissue engineering, wound healing, and drug delivery are some of the major applications of nanofibers in the medical industry. In drug delivery, nanofiber membrane from biopolymers is used as a bioactive material or drug carrier, says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on textile, fiber, and composites.
