Sales Analysis of Disposable Medical Supplies in South East Asia from 2017 to 2021 Vs Market Outlook for 2022 to 2032

The South East Asia disposable medical supplies market expanded at a CAGR of 5.1% over the last five years (2017-2021).

The rate of occurrence of HAIs is expected to increase rapidly across the world. HAIs are directly linked with the admission of patients into an acute-care hospital, and they include central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI), catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI), and others.

According to the latest data published by CDC in 2021, around one in 31 hospital patients acquire at least one healthcare-associated infection. To lower the incidence of hospital-acquired infections, several hospitals have implemented infection tracking and surveillance systems as well as robust preventative methods.

Growing concerns about Hospital-Acquired Infections (HAIs) are driving demand for disposable medical supplies to reduce risks of cross-contamination and meet higher healthcare standards.

Cost benefits, low maintenance, minimal need for sterilization, convenience, and improved healthcare safety standards are factors contributing to rising demand for disposable medical supplies in the South East Asian region.

To better align innovations in disposable medical supplies with public healthcare needs, increased funding and improved healthcare infrastructure is necessary. Therefore, with advancements in research & development, increasing awareness, and efforts to improve infection prevention standards, the disposable medical supplies industry is expanding at a fast pace.

Acquisitions and collaborations are key strategies adopted by manufacturers to increase their revenues in different countries. Companies are trying to foray into unexplored markets and improve their price competitiveness and further strengthen their stable supply system by vigorously reviewing the product portfolio of existing manufacturing bases to grab market share in emerging economies.

For instance:

  • On April 15, 2021, Thermo Fisher Scientific acquired PPD, Inc., a leading clinical research organization, to further expand its service offering to pharma and biotech customers.

Overall, the market for disposable medical supplies in South East Asia is predicted to surge ahead at 6.8% CAGR through 2032.

What are the Opportunities for Manufacturers of Disposable Medical Supplies in South East Asia?

The South East Asia disposable medical equipment market is set to witness lucrative growth due to increasing cases of surgeries. Disposable medical products are being used across various applications such as general surgery, cardiovascular surgeries, and orthopaedic procedures, amongst others.

Convenience during surgical procedures, prevention of cross-contamination by non-transfer of infections from one patient to another, and elimination of risk following surgery with accelerated healing time have contributed to increase in demand.

Low-cost disposable medical supplies are increasingly replacing high-value-added single-use goods during surgery and general patient care, presenting significant potential for disposable medical supply manufacturers.

Furthermore, technological advancements have allowed for new and improved devices in the medical sector. Development of FDA-approved robotic-assisted surgical devices has facilitated improved patient care and outcomes. Better outcomes attract more patients to opt for surgery, in turn, increasing demand for equipment used in surgery especially, the usage of disposable medical supplies.

In addition, growing investments in the healthcare industry in emerging countries offer lucrative opportunities for key manufacturers of disposable medical supplies in South East Asia.

What’s Restraining Demand for Disposable Medical Equipment in South East Asia?

Increasing environmental concerns related to medical waste is the prime restraining factor for the South East Asia disposable medical supplies industry. Improper segregation and disposal of biomedical waste, air & groundwater source contamination, as well as improper needle disposal raising the risk of needle-stick injuries and infections such as HIV, hepatitis B, and C infections are major worries for the healthcare industry.

Furthermore, poor healthcare waste management can result in serious environmental and human health issues. SEA countries are densely populated, and some are highly resource-constrained. These countries lack proper healthcare waste management.

Facilities lack proper waste segregation, collection, storage, transportation, and proper disposal. Thus, all these factors are limiting demand growth of disposable medical supplies in South East Asia.
