Market Synopsis of Global Swab Market Scenario
Swabs are also known as wipes. They are medicated absorbent pads or materials, which are used as a part of surgery and medicine, pre-injection swabs, wound cleansers, or in a first aid kit. A swab consists of an absorbent material, which actually imparts the medical properties to the swab. These are pertained with antiseptics such as chlorhexidine, cetrimide or iodine or disinfectants such as alcohol. The antiseptics swabs that have active ingredients and show targeted and specific actions come under the medical products. On the other hand, alcohol swabs do not have active ingredient, thus, they do not show targeted action.
According to the healthcare cost and utilization project report of the U.S. published in 2017, over 22 million surgeries were performed in 2014. Over 50% of these surgeries occurred in a hospital inpatient setting, which added a boost to the market growth. Furthermore, according to WHO report on global disease burden, by 2020 chronic diseases will account for almost three quarters of all deaths worldwide and 71% deaths will be on account on Ischaemic Heart Disease (IHD). According to WHO report of 2015, the geriatric population will reach to 1.6 billion by 2025-2050, which in turn will increase the demand for the swab.
Increasing global disease burden followed by increasing number of surgeries, rising geriatric population, and increasing per capita expenditure in healthcare will drive the growth of the market. However, factors such as lack of awareness, uneven distribution of medical services, and low healthcare expenditures in developing countries may hamper the market growth over the assessment period.
