Increasing Incidence of HAIs Driving Expansion of Medical Disposables Market

Posted by Pramod Arya on January 5th, 2022

The market is being driven by the surging population of geriatric people, increasing incidence of chronic diseases, and soaring occurrence of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) across the world. As per a report published by the World Health Organization (WHO), HAIs affect around 3.5%–12% of all people visiting healthcare centers at any given time.

Furthermore, these infections usually affect 7.1% of the hospitalized patients in various European countries, according to the findings of the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC). Due to the rising prevalence of these infections, healthcare settings are increasingly focusing on minimizing the risks of infection transmission. Besides this, the mushrooming population of geriatric people across the world, on account of the falling death rate and increasing life expectancy of people, is also propelling the worldwide sales of medical disposables.

Out of these, the nonwoven medical supplies category dominated the market in 2020. When application is taken into consideration, the medical disposables market is classified into cerebrovascular, cardiovascular, gynecology, ophthalmology, orthopedics, and urology. Out of these, the cardiovascular category led the market in 2020, as per the findings of P&S Intelligence, a market research company based in India. This was primarily because of the high prevalence of cardiovascular diseases around the world. According to the observations of the WHO, cardiovascular diseases claim the lives of approximately 18 million people every year.

The market is also categorized, on the basis of end use, into clinics/physician offices, ambulatory surgery centers, research institutes, hospitals, and assisted-living centers and nursing homes. Amongst these, the hospitals category dominated the market, primarily because of the high incidence of cardiovascular diseases and diabetes, surging occurrence of point-of-care (POC) diagnostic procedures, and huge requirement for glucose-monitoring systems. Geographically, North America contributed the highest revenue to the market in 2020, mainly because of the presence of a large geriatric population and major medical disposable product manufacturers in the region.
