Healthcare workwear helps prevent the spread of microorganisms and provide protection to doctors, nursing professionals, and other hospital staff. Various types of healthcare workwear available in the market include coveralls, gowns, and safety glasses or face shields, masks, gloves, lab coats, scrubs, shoes, and boot covers. Medical professionals choose healthcare workwear according to their requirements and job. Safety glasses or face shields are plastic goggles that protect these professionals from sudden splashes of fluids such as blood, vomit, or excrement. Masks help them avoid exhaling microorganisms in a sterile environment. The rising number of COVID-19 cases across Asia Pacific is driving the demand for healthcare workwear in the region. Also, various ongoing innovations and advancements in surgery such as standardizing procedures, technological advancements, and high reliability organizations are expected to propel the growth of the healthcare providers during the forecast period, which would ultimately drive the demand for healthcare workwear. Further, the growing incidence of chronic diseases is another factor that is bolstering the market growth.
Based on product, the Asia Pacific healthcare workwear market is segmented into coveralls, gowns, and others. The gowns segment holds the largest share of the market. The gowns used by healthcare professionals are classified into surgical gowns, surgical isolation gowns, and nonsurgical gowns. Surgical gowns protect both the healthcare personnel and patients from the possible consequences of the transfer of body fluids, microorganisms, and particulate matter. Also, it is essential for an individual to wear surgical gown in sterile growing procedures. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) defines a surgical gown as Class II regulated medical device, which needs a 510(k) premarket notification. The FDA classifies surgical gowns into various zones. For instance, a critical zone includes the front of the body from the top of shoulders to knees and the wrist cuff's arms to above the elbow. The surgical gowns can be used for different risk levels ranging from levels 1 to level 4. Regulatory agencies closely monitor and regulate medical device manufacturing.
