Rise in the number of surgeries across the globe will drive increased adoption of disposable and reusable surgical gowns
Increasing number of surgeries is a major factor contributing to the revenue growth of the surgical gowns market across the globe. A rapidly growing aging population in the world is also responsible for the increased number of surgeries, not only in developed regions but also in the Asia Pacific and the Middle East and Africa region due to the rise in per capita income.
One of the most important functions of surgical gowns is to prevent patients from picking up Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs) that can be life threatening. With the recent advancements in medicare facilities, the awareness regarding hospital acquired infections has also increased. As per data released by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 30% HAIs are surgical site infections that add a hefty amount to the hospital bill of the patient. Due to this huge amount of money that patients have to spend because of the surgical site infections, people have become more aware of the causes and prevention of HAIs. This increasing awareness regarding HAIs is fueling the growth of the global surgical gowns market.
Continuous innovation by surgical gown manufacturers and lucrative marketing is also expected to boost revenue growth of the global surgical gowns market. The market for surgical gowns has been an established market for a long time but there are a number of innovations in technology for increasing the efficiency of surgical gowns so that the gowns can provide better protection to patients as well as surgeons.
Various options of surgical gowns are available in the market to cater to specific choices. A variety of fabrics such as spunlace, spunbond and SMS materials are available in the surgical gowns market. This huge variety available to meet end user requirements helps in the growth of the surgical gowns market.
