Global Cadaver Bags Market to Reach $959.1 Million by 2026
- Cadaver bags, also known as mortuary bags or body bags, are non-porous bags designed specifically to enclose human bodies for storage and transportation. They are also referred to as a cadaver pouch or human remains pouch. Cadaver bags are primarily used for transporting human remains from hospitals or their place of discovery to a mortuary or a funeral home. Cadaver bags are also used for storage of corpses within morgues, hospitals and anatomy labs. The bags are designed to prevent leakage of body fluid from human remains during transport. The rising COVID-19 death toll across the globe promises lucrative growth opportunities for the global cadaver bags market. Increasing death toll and short supplies of body bags are prompting various hospitals to shift their attention towards Chinese companies. Chinese suppliers of cadaver or body bags are witnessing notable spike in demand for body bags owing to increasing COVID-19 death toll. As the management and disposal of human remains involves many individuals and a variety of agencies, safe handling of such remains necessitates the adoption of safety standards that ensure protection of all stakeholders. In the context of epidemic outbreaks, proper strategies must be implemented to minimize the risk of infection in individuals handling the bodies of deceased persons. Thus, the universal use of cadaver bags or body bags is recommended for transport and storage of human remains as a hygienic measure to facilitate infection control and prevent leakage. Bodies are placed in a leak proof zip bag with a transparent section that allows family members to view the face of the deceased without exposing them to infection from the cadaver. Body bags are designed for single use and hence are not re-usable.
- Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the global market for Cadaver Bags estimated at US$858.1 Million in the year 2022, is projected to reach a revised size of US$959.1 Million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 6.8% over the analysis period. PVC, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is projected to record a 7.2% CAGR and reach US$441.3 Million by the end of the analysis period. After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and its induced economic crisis, growth in the Polyethylene segment is readjusted to a revised 6.9% CAGR for the next 7-year period.

The U.S. Market is Estimated at $339.3 Million in 2022, While China is Forecast to Reach $43.9 Million by 2026
- The Cadaver Bags market in the U.S. is estimated at US$339.3 Million in the year 2022. China, the world`s second largest economy, is forecast to reach a projected market size of US$43.9 Million by the year 2026 trailing a CAGR of 6.8% over the analysis period. Among the other noteworthy geographic markets are Japan and Canada, each forecast to grow at 5.9% and 7% respectively over the analysis period. Within Europe, Germany is forecast to grow at approximately 6.3% CAGR.
- Developed regions including the US, Canada, Japan and Europe, represent the primary revenue contributors for the world cadaver bags market. Repeated waves of COVID-19 infections in the US and European countries such as Italy, Spain, etc. are propelling the need for cadaver bags. In addition, the US and other developed regions are typically characterized by well-established healthcare infrastructure and wider access to care services offered through hospitals, clinics, and commercial diagnostics centres. Further, these countries are also characterized by higher healthcare awareness among population, and consumer affluence, which strongly influence the demand for care and diagnostics services. Growing prevalence of lifestyle and chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, cancer and heart disease, and ageing population also perk up the demand for care services. Due to massive healthcare infrastructure and huge demand for care services, deployment and usage of various types of healthcare equipment and supplies remains high in the developed countries.

- In the global Nylon segment, USA, Canada, Japan, China and Europe will drive the 6.5% CAGR estimated for this segment. These regional markets accounting for a combined market size of US$72.9 Million will reach a projected size of US$113.4 Million by the close of the analysis period.

Innovation in Cadaver Bags Catches Fire
- The body of a deceased person holds significant symbolism in several cultures as it directly represents the person. The absence of the body like in disasters creates uncertainty pertaining to life status of the individual and may result in socio-cultural and legal implications. These factors underscore utter significance of the body`s identification in closure of forensic cases. Cadaver bags hold a critical importance in early coordination phases of identification of disaster victims by allowing isolation, storage and transportation of the body. Standard cadaver bags witnessed minor changes since their inception, and score low in terms of adaptability for forensic cases, especially in unrefrigerated scenarios. These issues call for the development of more effective designs of cadaver bags for addressing humanitarian challenges. Body bags with better designs hold potential to improve identification of victims in war or natural disasters.
- The development of cadaver bags with new and more effective designs, such as Better Body Bag, is expected to considerably improve identification of victims in war and natural disasters. These highly functional and affordable cadaver bags decelerate decomposition and improve visual identification to protect victim`s identity and ensure closure. Newly designed cadaver bags are capable of creating and holding a vacuum through the use of a typical hand pump. The vacuum prevents interaction of the body with the external environment components like oxygen to restrict proliferation of insects or bacteria. These bags feature an outer light-deflecting layer to control the temperature. In addition, these cadaver bags use a super-absorber pad that controls bodily fluids caused by decomposition and leakage of these fluids due to puncture of the bag. These bags provide better working conditions to humanitarian actors responsible to manage the bodies. Moreover, these cadaver bags feature a closing mechanism for an effective hermetic seal and barrier to odors, gases and organisms. These redesigned bags are light in weight, reduce the risk of punctures or ruptures, and support documentation, identification and handling of a body.
