World Medical Disposables

As Quoted In Plastics Today

Growth will be driven by the upgrading and stricter enforcement of infection prevention protocols by hospitals and other health facilities, and by more hospital, surgical, and outpatient activity.

World demand to rise 6.6% annually through 2018

Global demand for medical disposables is forecast to rise 6.6 percent annually to $245 billion in 2018. The strongest influence on growth will involve the upgrading and stricter enforcement of infection prevention protocols by hospitals and other health facilities throughout the world. Additionally, in most countries an increasing volume of hospital, surgical, and outpatient activity will boost the overall market for disposable supplies and devices employed in direct patient care. Lastly, global sales of consumer medical disposables, such as adhesive bandages, home test kits, and incontinence garments, will expand due to the impact of evolving demographic and epidemiological patterns as well as trends encouraging the regular practice of preventive medicine and self-treatment.

China to be fastest growing major market

The United States, China, Japan, Russia, Germany, France, Brazil, India, Italy, and the United Kingdom will comprise the 10 largest national markets for medical disposables, combining to account for two-thirds of total world demand in 2018. During the forecast period (2013-2018), average annual growth in these markets will range from 3.6 percent in Japan to 15 percent in China. Demand for medical disposables in the United States, Western Europe, Japan, and most other developed countries will increase at a comparatively slow pace because their medical delivery systems are well established, accessible to most residents, and have already adopted stringent infection prevention standards. By contrast, growth in the BRIC countries and other emerging economies will exceed the world average as health care sectors are expanded, modernized, and adapted to formal infection prevention protocols.

Disposables used to treat chronic conditions to see fastest growth

Supplies and devices indicated for the treatment or management of widely prevalent chronic conditions will realize the fastest worldwide revenue growth among medical disposables. Included in this group are products for dialysis, urinary drainage, transdermal drug delivery, respiratory disorders (especially asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), incontinence, and ostomy. Demand for first aid kits and medical waste disposal supplies will also grow above the average global pace, the former based on expanding self-treatment applications, the latter due to increasing preferences for high value-added items with enhanced infection prevention safeguards. Advances in the quality of medical disposables will also improve the safety and outcome of various patient procedures worldwide.
