Newark, Oct. 17, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Brainy Insights estimates that the USD 1.18 Billion in 2020 surgical drapes market will reach USD 1.73 Billion by 2030. Drapes can be made of cloth or paper and are reusable or disposable. Effective barrier protection, ignition resistance, and durability are all crucial features.

Market Dynamics

Driver: Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs)

Hospital-associated infections (HAIs) are a major cause of concern for both patients and healthcare providers worldwide. The increased incidence of hospitalisations and HAIs worldwide will increase the demand for surgical drapes. The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that one out of every 31 hospitalised patients will have at least one HAI case per year. Furthermore, an estimated 157,500 SSI infections were recorded in the United States in 2019, according to NHSN Surgical Site Infection (SSI) Surveillance figures. As a result, market expansion is projected to be supported by the global increase in HAIs and SSIs.
