Surgical Apparel Manufacturing in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Surgical Apparel Manufacturing

The Surgical Apparel Manufacturing industry is expected to decline over the five years to 2018. Despite rising demand conditions, low-cost imports have captured a growing share of the market and siphoned revenue from domestic manufacturers, with many global players opting to offshore US production. Over the next five years, demand for surgical apparel will likely continue to decline, despite growth in the elderly and obese populations. Demand for industry products will continue to be limited by low-cost imports from countries such as China.

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.
