DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Disposable Hospital Supplies Global Market Report 2020" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The global disposable hospital supplies market was valued at about $19.4 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow to $28.3 billion at a CAGR of 9.9% through 2022.
The disposable hospital supplies market consists of sale of disposable hospital supplies and related services. Disposable hospital supplies are products for one-time use only and include blood glucose test strips, procedure kits and trays, conventional syringes and needles, facemasks, prefilled syringes, isolation gowns and medical gloves.
The disposable hospital supplies market has been geographically segmented into North America, Western Europe, Asia-Pacific, Eastern Europe, South America and Middle East & Africa. The North American Market is the largest market for disposable hospital supplies and is expected to continue to do so during the forecast period.
The increase in demand for disposable hospital supplies to avoid contamination and hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) is driving the disposable hospital supplies market.
The hospitalized patients are susceptible to infections caused by various bacteria such as Staphylococcal infections and Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and therefore, use of sterile and unused hospital supplies is very important.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that HAIs account for an estimated 1.7 million infections and 99,000 associated deaths each year in United States. To avoid contamination and transmission of infection in hospital settings, CDC has recommended the use of high barrier drapes, gowns, gloves and high-level disinfectants in hospital and ambulatory operating rooms. This increased use of disposable hospital supplies to avoid infections will drive the market growth.
The rising environmental concerns due to improper disposal of disposal hospital supplies will restraint the market growth, reducing their use. In healthcare facilities, disposable gloves and gowns are widely used to maintain sterile environment and reduce the risk of spreading infections from healthcare providers during invasive procedures and spread of infections from patient-to-patient.
Environment regulatory bodies are imposing stringent rules for proper and managed disposal of hospital wastes. For instance, in United States, contaminated gloves, are disposed of in orange bags or orange-lidded containers based on the law guidance laid by the Royal College of Nursing.
In United States, personal protective equipment (PPE) used in healthcare settings which include disposable hospital supplies, such as surgical masks, N95 respirators, gloves, and gowns are regulated by FDA under the Premarket Notification or 510(k) Clearance Act. According to the act, the manufacturers must follow Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations and must meet applicable voluntary standards for protection of healthcare providers and patients from contamination and transmission of infections.
Major players in the market are Abbott Laboratories, Bayer AG, Becton, Dickinson, and Company and Cardinal Health Incorporated, Domtar Corporation.
