Nonwoven disposables are being increasingly accepted into the healthcare fold, given the growing awareness towards incontinence and the necessity of premium quality surgical and medical disposals. In addition, the enforcement of strict reforms in government hospitals and other medical facilities encouraging the deployment of nonwoven fabrics, is expected to stimulate medical nonwoven disposables market share over 2017-2024. In fact, estimates claim medical nonwoven disposables industry size to register a CAGR of 7% over the forthcoming seven years.

Sustainability influencing medical nonwoven disposable market trends:

  • As per estimates, 1,800 tons of disposable diapers are used on a daily basis in the U.S., which ultimately end up in landfills. In fact, approximately 20% of the total waste in landfills comprises discarded diapers, which are severely toxic for the environment, given that diaper materials are not biodegradable. In a bid to reduce environmental waste, Raleigh has come up with a green alternative that may help impel the growth graph of medical nonwoven disposables industry. This innovation apparently is a biodegradable material manufactured from corn starch, and is touted to generate disposable diapers that would be massively available and rather cost-effective. While the product may require some time to be officially commercialized, it has already been forecast to garner critical acclaim across medical nonwoven disposables market.
  • Another low key but rather effective precedent that underlines the significance of sustainability in medical nonwoven disposables market is the Limpopo Eskom Science Expo held recently. The event witnessed two students from the Irene Christian College showcasing two machines – one that was designed to clean disposable diapers, and another that was programmed to dry them. The innovative product won an award at the Limpopo Eskom Science Expo, and in all likelihood, would encourage companies partaking in medical nonwoven disposables industry share to endorse, upgrade, and commercialize the product that would help the entire healthcare and medical devices fraternity.

Medical nonwoven disposals market players are rigorously investing in introducing new, safe, value added enhanced quality medical apparels. For instance, well known global brands such as Kimberly-Clark and SCA introduced Core-Lokt technology and TENA Identifi respectively that offers better comfort to the patients suffering from incontinence.

Technical advancements and growing consumer awareness have been pushing manufacturers toward preferring nonwoven disposables over woven fabrics, however, the very fact that disposables have a hazardous impact on the environment may restrain the growth of medical nonwoven disposables market share to some extent. Additionally, the abundance of product substitutes such as reusable medical products that are cost-effective and long-lasting have been further putting a damper on the expansion spectrum of medical nonwoven disposables industry.

The implementation of the AAMI (Advancement of medical instrumentation) for sterilization of medical tools and the inflow of sustainable disposables have emerged as two major factors that would help combat the restraints of medical nonwoven disposables market. As companies strive to develop a range of eco-friendly products to augment the revenue graph of this business space, analysts claim global medical nonwoven disposables industry size to cross a valuation of USD 12.5 billion by 2024.
