Skin Barriers Market Pegged at US$ 465 Mn by 2030; Limited COVID-19 Impact on Market Due to Rising e-Commerce Sales

Published On : Nov 02, 2020

The skin barriers market is a niche market, and is a consolidated space with many major players. The parent market for skin barriers is incontinence and ostomy. Skin barriers generally fall under accessory products offered by companies to complement healing and facilitate skin protection. The potential of the skin barriers market has not yet been fully tapped because of products being less focused on and marketed.  

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is expected to have limited impact on the global skin barriers market. Ostomy procedures and medical diagnosis of incontinence are being postponed due to more pressing needs related to coronavirus. However, due to lockdown conditions, the online sales channel is expected to aid market growth.

Persistence Market Research estimates that the global skin barriers market is set to witness a CAGR of 4% over the forecast period (2020-2030).
