Demand for Medical Nonwoven Disposables Well Poised to Surge with Expansion of Healthcare Industry Worldwide

Transparency Market Research Report Added "Medical Nonwoven Disposables Market" to its database.


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/05/2016 -- The use of disposable items made from nonwoven fabrics is on the rise in the medical industry thanks to advantages such as reduced sterilization costs and easier handling/storage. The global market for medical nonwoven disposables is studied in detail in Transparency Market Research's report, titled 'Medical Nonwoven Disposables Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013–2019.'

Conventionally used woven fabrics in the medical industry stand a higher possibility of passing on hospital acquired infections (HAIs) and other potentially fatal infections such as HIV/AIDS and hepatitis. The medical industry, in a bid to address this issue, is increasingly turning toward nonwoven disposables thanks to their inherent advantages in a healthcare/medical setting. On the greatest advantages rendered by nonwoven disposables is that they prevent blood borne diseases and viruses from spreading from one patient to another or from patients to medical practitioners.

Moreover, medical nonwovens can be made into virtually any product that is otherwise made of woven fabrics. Thus, the global medical nonwoven disposables market today features products ranging from masks to patient gowns to operating gowns to dressings to orthopedic drapes.

However, for the purpose of this study, TMR analysts have segmented the global medical nonwoven disposables market into two key categories: surgical nonwoven products and incontinence products. While the surgical nonwoven products segment is further broken down into products such as surgical masks, gowns, sheets, caps, drapes, and gauze, the larger incontinence products segment includes products such as disposable diapers, panty shields, cotton pads, and disposable underwear. In view of the high sales potential that exists in the disposable diapers segment, it has been studied further to include sub-segments such as super-absorbent diapers, biodegradable diapers, ultra-absorbent diapers, gender-specific diapers, and regular diapers.

The growth of the global medical nonwoven disposables market will chiefly be hinged on the growth of the overall healthcare industry. The report states that opportunities will mainly lie in the manufacture and marketing of incontinence products, as this segment dominates the surgical nonwoven products market. The demand for incontinence products for women and children is predicted to remain especially high. Players are launching products with improved features, such as rustle-free diapers, further aiding the growth of the medical nonwoven disposables market's growth.

TMR's report also extensively studies the medical nonwoven disposables market from the regional standpoint. The global market has thus been segmented into: North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and the Rest of the World. While demand for medical nonwoven disposables primarily stems from developed countries in western Europe and North America, the scenario is showing some signs of change on account of an increase in demand from new markets in Asia Pacific and Latin America. The favorable healthcare insurance policies, which to a great extent contribute to more people undergoing surgeries, have given the medical nonwoven disposables market a boost.
