Disposable Medical Supplies

US demand for disposable medical supplies is forecast to grow 4.9 percent annually through 2011. Best prospects include dry powder inhalers, prefilled syringes and transdermal patches for drug delivery; blood glucose test strips for diabetes monitoring; tissue sealants for wound closure; and daily contact lenses.

This study analyzes the $55.4 billion US disposable medical supply industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1996, 2001 and 2006 and forecasts for 2011 and 2016 presented by product group (e.g., drug delivery, catheterization and related; wound management; nonwoven medical disposables), by market (e.g., hospitals, home health care, outpatient facilities, physicians’ offices), and by raw material.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 25 industry competitors including Johnson & Johnson, GlaxoSmithKline, Covidien, Becton Dickenson, Baxter International, Cardinal Health, Kimberly-Clark, Boston Scientific, Hospira, and 3M.
