Industry Niche Description

- Producers and distributors of specialty wound care products, particularly those with stated health benefits and differentiation.
- Producers and distributors of differentiated consumable drug delivery products.
- Suppliers of plastic and non-woven substrates and other value-added raw materials (films, adhesives, gels) into the above markets.
