wyoung,

According to:

http://www.hmc.org/hmc.nsf/View/CEOsMessage

Johnson and Johnson produces about 1/2 a billion Band-Aids a year:

"...Johnson & Johnson alone sells over $30 million worth of Band-Aids each year? At an average price of about a nickel each, that’s over 500,000,000 Band-Aids a year (J&J estimates they’ve sold over 100 billion Band-Aids over the years, and that’s just their brand..."


I assume these are the types of bandages you had in mind. What additional statistics are you looking for?

My question is in regards to elastic bandages not adhesive bandages. They are sometimes called compression bandages and one of the more popular brands of elastic bandages are ACE brand elastic bandages produced by 3M.

Hi,wyoung!

 I haven't found any numbers for compression dressings sold, but these are the closest global dollar figures I have run across.
 
  "In 2008, the largest subsegment within the worldwide skin ulcer management market was debridement products followed by compression bandages and dressings with revenues estimated at $115.1 million and $97.3 million, respectively.

 See page 19 - http://idea.library.drexel.edu/bitstream/1860/3373/1/Greenspan,%20Adam%20J..pdf

==
 
 Here is a dollar figure for passive compression therapies from 2008:
 
 "According to Mr. Laurel, the most successful technologies are - categorically speaking and using 2008 figures - physical therapies (i.e. NPWT, HBO, Passive Compression - the top three therapies) at $1.4 billion, foam dressings totaling $1.1 billion, hydrocolloids amounting to $900 million, and alginates at $400 million.

 You can also purchase a single page of the following report:

 Does any of this information help?
