Medical textiles remain one of the most dynamic areas of research in textiles and increasingly intimate combination of Textile Technology and Medical sciences has made “Medical Textiles” an emerging multidisciplinary field with tremendous potential. Medical Textiles are a major growth area within the Technical Textiles industry and the range of applications continues to grow and increase in diversity with every new development. The consumption of Medical Textiles worldwide was 1.5 million tons in 2000, 14.8 billion during 2003-04 and it is growing by 8% p.a. Market potential for hospital textiles by 2012 is estimated to be $600 million.

With issues such as rising population and increased concern over the hygienic environment and infection prevention, the need to understand and improve hygiene and healthcare products has become increasingly important. The complexity of applications has increased with research and development in the area of medical textiles. Textile fibres, yarns, fabrics and composites plays a vital role in the manufacture of various products like wound dressings, scaffolds for tissue management, medical gowns, bed linens, wipes and sanitary products, implants including the replacement of diseased or non functioning parts of the body.
