Insight by Type

Based on the type, the global hospital gowns market is categorized into surgical, non-surgical, and patient. In 2020, the surgical segment is estimated to account for over 50 percent of the total revenue share. Such a high share is attributed to the rising cases of hospital-acquired infections and in-patient surgeries across the globe.

Surgical gowns are effective against the transmission of viral and microbial infections. Moreover, key players in the market for hospital gowns are focusing on re-designing gowns with enhanced safety and better comfort. Thus, such initiatives are expected to propel the segment’s growth prospects over the forecast period.

The patient gowns market segment is projected to witness the highest growth rate over the forecast period. These products are designed for long-term patient admissions in healthcare facilities. Collaborations in the marketplace are projected to propel the segment’s growth in the coming years.

For instance, Medstar collaborated with the U.S.-based company, Care+Wear to design innovative patient gowns that are tested in hospital facilities for quality control before its launch. Such initiatives are expected to propel the segment’s future.

Insight by Usability

Based on usability, the global hospital gowns market is bifurcated into disposable, and reusable. In 2020, the disposable segment accounted for the largest share and is projected to retain its dominance. These hospital gowns are intended for one-time use and are considered a cost-effective alternative over others and their quality is preferred over re-usable ones. The materials used in making such products are dermatologically tested. Such advantages are projected to boost the segment’s growth.

Reusable gowns are projected to register the fastest growth rate over the study period. These are made of carbon fabric and are highly sterilized, bio-compatible, tear-resistant, and effective in preventing nosocomial infections. Moreover, rising cases of hospital-acquired infections also boost the segment’s prospects. According to the estimates of the WHO, out of 100 hospitalized individuals, 7 in developed and 10 in emerging economies acquired at least one healthcare-associated infection. These cases are projected to fuel the segment’s growth over the assessment period.

Insight by Risk Type

On the basis of risk type, the global market is categorized into minimal, low, moderate, and high. In 2020, the high-risk market segment accounted for the largest share among all the segments. These high-risk products protect patients against infectious diseases in surgical and fluid-intensive surgical procedures. Moreover, the surge in hospital admissions and concerned research activities are projected to boost the segment’s growth prospects.

The minimal-risk market segment is projected to witness the highest growth rate over the assessment period. These gowns are adopted in the standard medical units, hospitals, isolation units, covering gowns for patients, and in research and academic activities. These are most suitable for diseases that are acquired through contaminated body fluids such as HIV, Ebola, and hepatitis.

Geographic Overview

Geographically, the global market is bifurcated into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America is the largest revenue contributor followed by Europe and the Asia Pacific region. In 2019, the North America region accounted for over 30% of the global market.

The factors contributing to the region’s dominance include the rising number of surgeries across the globe. Key players in the marketplace are employing innovative strategies to boost the use of hospital gowns. Moreover, the rising cases of HAIs and anti-microbial resistance in the region also boosted the region’s market growth.

For instance, in May 2020, Premier Inc., the U.S.-based healthcare improvement company collaborated with Ballad Health, to boost its domestic manufacturing, owing to hiccups in the current supply chain network due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. This has ensured a continuous supply of personal protective equipment, including gowns.
