In 2022, GlobalData’s Market Model methodology determined that the leading player in the superabsorbents market in Ireland was Molnlycke Health Care followed by Smith & Nephew, Paul Hartmann, Medline Industries, 3M, Coloplast, Lohmann & Rauscher International, Hollister, ConvaTec Group, DeRoyal Industries and BSN Medical.

The high absorption capacity reduces the risk of leakage and minimizes the risk of maceration around the wound. The superabsorbent pad may be made of either foam, cellulose or hydropolymer. These dressings are majorly used for the treatment of chronic leg ulcers and chronic pressure ulcers where they provide a moist and active environment for optimum healing. Antimicrobial superabsorbents and non-antimicrobial superabsorbents are tracked under this segment. Antimicrobial superabsorbents are impregnated with an antimicrobial agent that inhibits microbial growth. Non-Antimicrobial superabsorbents are devoid of antimicrobial activity due to absence of antimicrobial agents.

Following the widespread disruption resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic to the broader medical devices market during 2020 and 2021, the value of the superabsorbents devices market within Ireland was expected to be over $1m in 2022.
