World Medical Disposables

As Quoted In RISI Nonwoven Markets

A number of interrelated trends will foster growth in the world market for medical disposables. Aging population patterns will boost product demand by leading to a rising level of diseases and disorders and an expanding volume of patient activity. In addition, growth will benefit from the strengthening of infection prevention safeguards in healthcare facilities and by the introduction of new and upgraded products with enhanced performance and safety features.

Cost containment efforts affect medical disposables demand

Healthcare cost containment measures in the form of fixed global budgets and fixed reimbursement rates will keep hospitals and other medical providers frugal in their product purchasing practices. As the result of multiple supplier availability, most types of medical disposables will continue to derive a high percentage of sales from competitive bidding processes implemented by healthcare purchasing groups.

Copayments, coverage restrictions to provide a mixed impact

Health insurance concerns have raised patient copayments and restricted coverage for various medical services; this will exert a mixed impact on the world medical disposables market. By discouraging individuals from making unnecessary visits to physicians and other medical providers, these actions will moderate market growth. However, at the same time, rising copayments and coverage restrictions will boost sales of medical disposables in consumer and home healthcare markets.

Wide array of applications

Medical disposables serve all aspects of patient care, spanning thousands of products sold to several health- care market segments. Major uses extend to surgery, drug and fluid delivery, wound management, diagnostic testing, patient examination, incontinence management, dialysis treatment, sterilization, infectious waste disposal, and general patient support.

Product groups

The various types of medical disposables are categorized into 11 principal product groups -- surgical instruments and supplies, infusion and hypodermic devices, diagnostic and laboratory disposables, sterilization supplies, dialysis disposables, bandages and wound dressings, nonwoven medical disposables, respiratory devices, patient room supplies, medical and laboratory gloves, incontinence goods -- and eight additional product lines -- first aid kits, urinary catheters and accessories, transdermal patches, ostomy supplies, medical sponges, medical waste disposal supplies, medical cotton goods, and enema supplies.
