Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is rise of single-use spinal products. Spinal surgeries involve lengthy recovery periods. This is due to the criticality involved in the process and the utmost care needed after surgery. Spinal fusion, laminectomy, and disk replacement are the common spinal procedures.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is cost-effectiveness of nonwoven medical textiles. Drapes and gowns provide protection from contaminations during surgeries. There are several parameters involved in selecting the appropriate drapes and gowns. These include surgeon comfort, patient spread, and limited transfer of infection. Nonwoven materials are used to make masks and head caps. Surgical nonwovens are absorbent pads; apparels for patients, surgeons, and staff; bed linen; gowns; facemasks; pillows and shoe covers; sponges; towels; and wraps. These products prevent the spread of infections.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is increasing volume of disposable waste causing environmental damage. The increasing volume of medical waste is an environmental concern. Medical waste is incarcerated to prevent infections. However, medical waste causes pollution due to the use of non-biodegradable materials in producing disposable medical supplies. The increasing adoption of disposable medical supplies has increased the volume of medical waste. Developed countries such as the UK and the US generate a significant volume of medical waste. Developing countries such as China and India do have stringent regulations about the disposal of medical waste.
