Surgical Apparel Manufacturing - Industry Market Research Report

Surgical Apparel Manufacturing

Over the next five years, demand for surgical apparel will increase, largely due to growth in the elderly and obese populations. Healthcare reform will allow more Americans to have healthcare coverage, resulting in more surgeries and stronger industry demand. Nevertheless, demand for industry products has been limited by low-cost imports from countries like China. During the next five years, revenue will expand modestly due to continuing favorable demographic trends and stable input prices.

This industry manufactures sterile surgical apparel such as surgical gowns, drapes, shoe covers and face masks. Surgical apparel is used to reduce the transfer of bacteria from surgical staff to the patient, while also protecting the staff from blood, urine, saline or other chemicals and bodily fluids during surgical procedures. This industry does not include apparel worn underneath protective gear, nor items sold for veterinary or laboratory use.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
