Medical Textiles – A Lucrative Application Area for Knitted Fabrics Manufacturers

Both, woven fabrics and knitted fabrics are commonly used in the healthcare industry as medical textile. However, textile engineers discovered that knitted fabrics are more flexible, highly porous than woven fabrics, and have loose and changeable structural design, thereby can be used in versatile medical applications. The structure of knitted fabric can be altered and modified easily to suit variable requirements of several medical applications, which is boosting demand for knitted fabrics in the healthcare industry.

With growing awareness about unique benefits of knitted fabrics, when they are used as medical textiles, knitting technologies have emerged to be an integral part of the healthcare industry. For example, warp knitting technology is becoming popular as one of the most economic technologies used to manufacture thermostatic textiles used in surgery to maintain patients’ body temperature.

Increasing use of high-tech medical textiles in healthcare applications is creating numerous lucrative opportunities for manufacturers in the knitted fabrics market. Leading market players are likely to adopt next-generation manufacturing technologies to offer knitted medical textiles that can suit various requirements of medical applications in the upcoming years.
