Medical Nonwoven Disposables Market

North America was observed as the largest regional market for medical nonwoven disposables in the base year 2016. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in every 25 U.S. patients has at least 1 infection, contracted during their stay at the hospital. The dominance of North America is mainly attributed to large number of incontinent geriatric population, rising public awareness to maintain personal hygiene and demand for surgical disposables to prevent infection in the urge to reduce the toll of hospital acquired infections. Europe is estimated to be the second largest regional market due to rising public preference for personal hygiene, enhanced spending by major pharmaceutical players in R&D facilities to introduce innovative medical nonwoven disposable products, and supportive regulatory approval for medical nonwoven disposables.  Asia Pacific will be the fastest growing market throughout the forecast period 2017-2025, majorly due to factors such as rising prevalence of critical illnesses requiring surgical procedure, rise in market competition due to presence of existing and budding manufacturers involved in medical nonwoven disposables production, and increasing disposable income in the constituent economies. However, factors such as developing health infrastructure, increasing awareness about sanitation and demand for medical nonwoven disposables in untapped markets are going to fuel the rapid growth of medical nonwoven disposables market in Latin America and Middle East and Africa in the near future.
