The Surgical Drapes And Gowns Market Is Driven By Increasing Number Of Surgeries

Surgical drapes and gowns are widely used in surgical procedures to prevent cross-contamination between the medical staff and the wound. Surgical drapes are sheets used to isolate the surgical site to maintain sterility during a procedure. Likewise, surgical gowns protect both medical staff as well as patients from harmful microbes by forming a protective barrier between patients and medical staff. With the growing prevalence of chronic diseases and rising geriatric population globally, surgical procedures are becoming increasingly common. It is estimated that over 313 million major surgical procedures are performed worldwide annually. The substantial growth in the number of surgeries, especially in developing countries is fueling the demand for single-use surgical drapes and gowns to maintain hygiene standards in hospitals and surgical centers.

The global Surgical Drapes And Gowns Market is estimated to be valued at Us$ 3.14 Bn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR Of 74.% over the forecast period 2023 To 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:

The rising demand for nonwoven materials for drapes and gowns production is one of the key trends witnessed in the surgical drapes and gowns market. Nonwoven materials are ideal for surgical drapes and gowns as they provide properties like liquid repellence, bacteria barrier, and high strength.

Development of antimicrobial and anti-microbial gowns and drapes integrated with silver and other protective coating is another trend being observed in the market. These impart additional protection against hospital-associated infections to medical practitioners and patients.
