Global Medical Disposables Market 2017-2021

Global Medical Disposables Market 2017-2021

About Medical Disposables

Medical disposables are single-use products that help to reduce HAIs. To improve patient care, many hospitals in developed and developing countries are using such products. To increase patient safety, end-users such as hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs), clinics, home care centers, and physicians' offices are using medical disposable products. These products are cost-effective and reduce the risk of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs), which, in turn, decreases prolonged hospital stay and reduces the cost burden on patients.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global medical disposables market to grow at a CAGR of 7.11% during the period 2017-2021.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is paradigm shift toward disposables devices in developed countries. Developed countries such as the US, the UK, France, and Germany, have seen more customers opting for medical disposables over the last few years. The shift is observed as hospitals are concerned about cross-contamination that can occur if reusable products are used. Disposable masks eliminate the need for product sterilization and reduce the probability of cross-contamination in hospital settings. In most cases, disposables are more cost-efficient for use by patients when it comes to prevent cross-contamination and reduce hospital stay of the patient.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is increasing number of surgical procedures in developed regions. Endoscopic surgical procedures such as colectomies and appendectomies are usually performed laparoscopically. The presence of robotic platform for complex surgeries, including hysterectomy, hernia repair, and lumpectomy has increased the surgical cases in the Americas and Europe. Apart from specialty surgeries, various other surgeries are performed in hospital settings, including orthopedic, trauma, ophthalmic, endoscopic, laparoscopic, and cosmetic surgeries. To increase patient benefit and reduce the number of HAIs, hospitals, and ASCs are using medical disposables, which are boosting the market growth.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is high cost of disposables owing to limited budget of hospitals. Respiratory and anesthesia disposables are costlier than reusable devices in terms of the number of products required during the treatment. One LMA unit can cost up to $125, while a round of sterilization can cost up to $3. In the case of reusable LMA, for 40 surgical procedures, hospitals need to pay only for the sterilization cost, which comes up to $2.65, whereas the cost of disposable equipment for 40 surgical procedures can go up to $280. The total cost of reusable LMA will be the cost of the LMA and its total price of sterilization for 40 surgical procedures, which is $231. This relatively high cost of disposables can hinder market growth.
