Albany, New York, September 15, 2017: The market for surgical gowns is growing all across the world due to an increase in the number of surgeries and a rapidly rising geriatric population. This is true not only for the developed regions of the world like North America and Europe, but also for the APAC region and Middle East and Africa, mainly due to an increase in the per capita income. There have been non-stop technological inventions by surgical gown manufacturers and strong marketing has also played its part in enhancing the revenue of the global surgical gowns market. A number of technological innovations have been introduced in surgical gowns for enabling better protection to patients and even surgeons for the prevention of hospital acquired infections. Various types of surgical gowns are currently available in the market, thereby offering a wide choice. They include spunlace, SMS materials and spunbond types of surgical gowns. Such a wide choice also leads to a growth in the global market. Keeping these factors in view, Market Research Reports Search Engine (MRRSE) has included a new report in its database titled “Surgical Gowns Market: Global Industry Analysis and Forecast (2017–2025)”.
Surgical gowns are used in order to prevent patients from getting hospital acquired infections that can be a danger to the life of the patients. Due to the recent progress made in healthcare facilities, the awareness about hospital acquired infections has also increased. Center for Disease Control and Prevention data points to the fact that more than 30% hospital acquired infections occur at the surgical site. These type of infections add a noteworthy increase in the medical expenses of the patient. Due to such increasing amounts of money being spent on hospital acquired infections, people are becoming more aware and this is the reason driving the growth of the surgical gowns market worldwide.
Market Taxonomy and Segmental Forecast
The global surgical gowns market is segmented on the basis of end user (hospitals, clinics and trauma centers, ambulatory surgical centers), on the basis of distribution channel (online sales, retail pharmacies, direct sales) and on the basis of product type (disposable, reusable).
The disposable surgical gowns category led the global surgical gowns market on the basis of product type in the year 2016 and this trend is projected to sustain itself throughout the period of assessment. The disposable surgical gowns category is the most attractive segment, from the point of view of market attractiveness analysis. It possesses an attractiveness index of 5.0 during the period of assessment. The disposable surgical gowns category is poised to hold approximately 68% market value share in the year 2017 and by the year 2025, this is likely to cross the 70% mark. Disposable surgical gowns offer enhanced protection levels and that is why their popularity is increasing in the market. The reusable surgical gowns segment is anticipated to be the second most attractive segment in the global surgical gowns market, with an attractiveness index of 1.4 over the period of assessment.
The Middle East and Africa is the sole region amongst the seven regions covered in this report where reusable surgical gowns have an increased demand. This is due to the fact that the region has low disposable income, and hospitals cannot afford to purchase disposable surgical gowns that are expensive. Another reason is a low awareness regarding hospital acquired infections. These factors may explain why the reusable surgical gowns segment was dominant in the Middle East and Africa region in terms of revenue and held about 55% market share in the year 2017.
The report profiles some of the leading players operating in the global surgical gowns market. Some of them include Ahlstrom-Munksjö, GrupA Medical Products, FULLSTAR NON-WOVEN PRODUCTS CO. LTD., Halyard Health, Inc., 3M Company, TIDI Products LLC, Molnlycke Health Care and Johnson & Johnson.
