Surgical Apparel Market Trends

  • Rising demand for high-quality patient care in healthcare facilities is driving the market growth

Growing consumer demand for top-notch patient care in healthcare facilities is anticipated to boost market expansion. Doctors and patients are both protected from hazardous infections by medical protective garments. These garments also help to stop the spread of infectious diseases, which is why they have been frequently utilized to safeguard healthcare personnel, such as doctors, nurses, and other hospital staff, during the COVID-19 pandemic. The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) estimates that over 600,000 total knee arthroplasty (TKA) treatments were carried out in the U.S. in 2010 and that this number would increase to nearly 3 million TKA procedures by 2030. The country's increasing surgical rate is predicted to boost market expansion in the United States. The market for medical protective apparel is expected to increase because to ongoing developments and advancements in the field of surgery, including standardizing practices, technical advancements, and high-reliability organizing (HRO). Additionally, an increase in the prevalence of chronic diseases is projected to support market expansion. Employers are now required to use medical protective clothing to shield their staff from various infections and health risks as a result of strict government regulations regarding the safety of patients, doctors, and other workers in hospitals and other facilities, as well as the severe penalties for non-compliance.

Humans and animals can naturally contract zoonotic infections from one another. These illnesses can be spread either by consuming contaminated food and water, coming into contact with the pathogen during preparation, or by having direct contact with diseased people or animals. Zoonotic illnesses have a significant impact on public health globally, with a greater occurrence rate in underdeveloped nations as a result of a lack of prevention measures and community ignorance. Approximately 75% of new infectious diseases in humans have animal origins, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The World Health Organization (WHO) announced in January 2020 that the coronavirus was to blame for the COVID-19 outbreak. It is thought that either snakes or bats are the source of this virus. Additionally, COVID-19 was classified as a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) by the WHO. The demand for medical apparel is anticipated to be driven by the increase in the prevalence of infectious disorders.

Hospital acquired infections among patients have become more common, according to healthcare facilities. Hospital acquired infections (HAIs) can be brought on by bacterial, viral, or fungal pathogens. Infections acquired in hospitals are more common in developing nations. Due to the growth in HAI, there is more attention being paid to the usage of proper medical garments to stop disease transmission from patients being admitted to the hospital. Approximately 10% of hospitals in developing countries and 7% of hospitals in affluent nations currently have at least one HAI case, according to a recent data sheet provided by the World Health Organization. When compared to affluent nations, the prevalence of ICU-related infections is two to three times higher in developing nations. Thus, driving the Surgical Apparel market revenue.
