The sub-segment is expected to rise at the highest CAGR of 6.4% during the forecast period. Hospitals, as primary centers for a broad spectrum of surgeries from simple to complex, inherently drive the high demand for surgical sponges due to the volume of procedures conducted. Technological advancements enabling more intricate surgeries have further escalated this need, as these operations often necessitate an increased use of surgical sponges for maintaining sterility and controlling bleeding. Besides, the imperative for stringent infection control and patient safety measures in hospital settings highlights the essential role of high-quality surgical sponges, thereby fueling market growth.
