Disposable Medical Supplies

According to Disposable Medical Supplies, a study from The Freedonia Group, a rise in patient activity caused by an aging population, increasing incidence of medical conditions, and extension of health insurance coverage by government programs will promote gains.

Drug delivery products to remain largest, fastest growing segment

Based on growth in the number of patients who need surgery or long-term therapy, drug delivery and related products will remain the largest and fastest expanding group of disposable medical supplies. Safety-enhanced devices for the minimally invasive delivery of parenteral medicines, inhalation therapies, and IV solutions will lead growth.

Among disposable wound management products, polymeric tissue sealants, along with alginate, foam, and collagen wound dressings, will realize the fastest gains based on enhanced safety and faster healing properties. On the other hand, demand for bandages will expand at a below average pace due to limited pricing flexibility and the overall lack of proprietary types.

Freedonia projects that nonwoven medical disposables will see above average growth in demand. The heightened focus on infection prevention in the healthcare sector will boost consumption of single-use, high value-added nonwoven garments and textiles by hospitals and outpatient facilities. A rising prevalence of bladder control problems in an aging population will benefit retail and institutional sales of nonwoven incontinence goods.

Study coverage

Disposable Medical Supplies analyzes the $44.1 billion US disposable medical supply industry. It presents historical demand data (2005, 2010 and 2015) and forecasts (2020 and 2025) by product (e.g., drug delivery products, wound management products, nonwovens, infection prevention supplies, diagnostic and laboratory disposables) and market (e.g., hospitals, outpatient centers, physicians’ offices, nursing homes, dental offices). The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles 27 industry players, including Becton Dickinson, Johnsons & Johnson, and Medline Industries.

Freedonia's market research studies provide timely access to reliable, unbiased analysis from which to benchmark performance and answer critical questions: Is your business growing faster or slower than the overall market? Is your organization gaining or losing market share? Which products and markets are the most desirable to explore for expansion? Are there industry trends or competitor activities that present a threat or opportunity to your business?

Studies offer a great ROI and can help business leaders make informed, analytically driven decisions. When considering the time, effort, and expertise that goes into it, our off-the-shelf research saves our clients time and money.
