The rise in surgical procedures will drive market growth.

The increasing number of surgical procedures is due to rising sports injuries, cardiac surgeries, and accidents. The high incidence of cardiovascular diseases and other chronic conditions where surgery is being suggested is one of the primary factors driving the market growth. Surgical drapes and gowns are highly required due to the increased prevalence of surgical site infections and demand for patient and healthcare worker protection. According to Annual National and State HAI Progress Report, about 18,416 surgical site infections were reported in adults, and 464 surgical site infections were recorded in a pediatric population from acute care hospitals in the United States in 2020. The increasing need for surgical gowns and drapes thus propels the market's growth.

The report segments the market into product, end-user, and geography. Based on product type, the market is categorized into incise, laparoscopy, laparotomy, leggings, lithotomy, and sheets. Based on end-user, the market is segmented into hospitals, clinics, home care settings, healthcare institutes and organizations and others. Geographically, the market is sub-segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South & Central America, and Middle East & Africa.

The surgical gown segment will propel the market's growth. 

A surgical gown is an example of personal protective equipment used in healthcare settings. In the healthcare setting, there is a demand for a self-donning surgical gown that healthcare personnel can don without assistance. Also, using a gown that can be put on and removed quickly and safely during chronic viral and infectious diseases to prevent onward transmission of environmental infection is more important than ever. The surge in investment by the market players propels the segment's growth. For instance, in May 2021, Windsor-based Harbour Technologies expanded its protective equipment manufacturing operations to Chatham-Kent by opening a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Chatham to make surgical isolation gowns.


The rising incidence of hospitals acquired infections is one of the major factors accelerating market growth.

Increased incidences of hospital-acquired infections are the vital factor escalating the market growth, also increasing incidences of nosocomial infections and healthcare-associated infection (HCAI); strong emphasis is shed on safety standards, bringing preparatory stages of surgery into focus. These are the major factors driving the surgical drapes market. Moreover, rising growth in emerging countries, increasing modernization and technological advancement in the healthcare sector, and increasing research and development activities in the healthcare sector will further create new opportunities for the surgical drapes market in the forecasted period of 2021-2028.
