Timely market intelligence is paramount in these uncertain times!

We launched an impact survey to update this project with timely insights during 2020. Update frequency will depend upon evolving market conditions and executive opinions. Our participants are executives driving strategy, marketing, sales and product management at competitive companies worldwide. All updates during the rest of the year are complimentary to clients!

- The global market for Surgical Drapes and Gowns is projected to reach US$3.7 billion by 2025, driven by spiraling rise in the number of surgeries and medical examinations performed worldwide. Growing burden of cancer and cardiovascular disorders especially is driving demand for life-saving surgical interventions. Given the growing severity of diseases especially infectious diseases, complex surgical procedures are forecast to become more common in the coming years. Few of the factors driving the volume of surgeries worldwide include rapidly aging population with diseases that need surgical intervention and their high degree of vulnerability for infections; rise in chronic diseases such as CVDs and cancer that require surgery as an effective alternative to oral therapy; technology innovations, improved surgical outcomes and increased patient acceptance; growing per capita healthcare spending, increased insurance coverage and greater patient affordability.
- Amid the rising incidence of nosocomial infections, hospital acquired infections (HAIs), and health care-associated infection (HCAI), strong emphasis is shed on safety standards, bringing preparatory stages of surgery into focus. In the U.S alone, over 98,000 people die each year due to HAIs taking the overall direct costs of HAIs to approximately US$40 to US$45 billion annually. A large percentage of HCAI occur during acute care and this brings surgery into the spotlight. Burden of HCAI is more severe in patients undergoing surgery. They represent a high-risk population. Device-associated infections and various forms of contact from a contaminated surgeon are leading causes of surgical site infections. Surgical site infections increase the risk of trauma, shock, blood transfusion, hypothermia, hypoxia, and hyperglycemia. Against this backdrop, the importance of providing safe surgical services is growing. Given that reducing surgical cross infection is a critical part of improving safety in surgical care, there is growing demand for high performance surgical drapes and gowns which provide effective bacteriological barrier and prevent transfer of pathogens during invasive surgeries. Benefits offered by surgical drapes and gowns include protects sterile surgical zones from microbial invasion; decreased risk of infection for the patient as well as the surgical team; and provides a physical barrier against spatters and spills of biological fluids.
- Driven by continuous technology innovations, non-wovens have emerged into a dynamic, value-added engineered alternative to traditional woven materials. Disposability, adaptability, effectiveness are few of the most important engineered qualities of non-wovens that are of high value as medical textiles. Perhaps the most important benefit of non-wovens is the virtually limitless manufacturing customization. Properties of the fabric that can be engineered and controlled to meet specific needs and requirements are porosity; fabric weight; thickness; strength; elasticity; durability; biocompatibility. Application-specific engineering of non-wovens is largely due to its ability to combine with other materials to form composites for advanced performance. Non-woven surgical drapes and gowns will score the highest market gains in the coming years. The United States and Europe represent large markets worldwide with a combined share of 68.8% of the global market. China also ranks as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 6.7% over the analysis period supported by factors such as growing population and a parallel increase in healthcare needs; developing healthcare infrastructure; increasing access to affordable healthcare services; growing per capita healthcare spending among the expanding base of affluent middle class population; and growing trend of domestic and international inbound health tourism especially in the field of orthopedic surgery, cosmetic surgery and cardiology.
