sterile clothing worn by surgeons and other staff working in the surgical
section during surgery. It helps prevent direct contact of bacteria and other
microorganisms with the healthcare or surgical staff. It aids in stopping the
transmission of bacteria and, in turn, the spread of disease.

Global Surgical Gown Market Outlook and Trends
Ø The growing number of surgical
The growing number of
surgeries is a major factor driving the growth of the global surgical gowns
market. Rapidly increasing population in the world, rise in the number of
surgeries and increasing disposable income not just in developing countries,
but also in the Asia-Pacific and the Middle East and Africa regions
cumulatively contribute to the demand for these safeguards.
Ø Increasing awareness about safety and
infection control during surgeries
of the most significant purposes of surgical clothing is to prevent patients
from contracting life-threatening Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs). The
recent advances in medical services have risen the knowledge of
hospital-acquired infections among people. As reported by the Center for
Disease Control and Prevention, more than 30% of HAIs are surgical site
infections that swell the hospital bill of patients considerably. Therefore, as
a result, the patients have become conscious and more aware of the causes and
prevention of HAIs.
Ø Reusing of surgical gowns through dry
cleaning restricts the sales of new products
The reuse of surgical gown
is the major restraint in the market growth during the projection period. The
reusable surgical gown is subject to a two-part cleaning process: First, they
are washed as specified guidelines for the prevention of infections. And then,
they are sterilized in the laundry room or the own packing room of the
hospital. Local processing ensures compliance of the best practices, promotes
open contact with processing staff and fosters accountability necessary for
sustainable, reliable results among them. However, in-house cleaning limits the
frequency of purchasing.
Impact of COVID-19 in industry
The global economy and
entire humanity have been pushed into a perpetual crisis caused by the COVID-19
pandemic. Due to the high infection rate and significant adverse impact on
public health systems, there has been an increase in the usage of surgical
gowns in healthcare facilities. Healthcare workers (HCWs) in primary care
settings are more prone to getting COVID-19 infection than the general
population. COVID-19 is transmitted through droplet spread from coughing or
sneezing, hand fomites to mucous membranes. Protective clothing helps minimize
the spread of droplets or other body fluids to the skin and clothing of HCW,
thereby mitigates the risk of secondary spread to the hands and the mucous
membranes. Aerosol Producing Procedures (AGPs) recommends wearing full body
cover with a waterproof apron on top regularly. It further pushes the demand
for the surgical gown.
of infection in hospitals and demand for consumables in insulation centers
across the globe have hugely affected this market's dynamics. The supply of
medical accessories from many manufacturing facilities from China has been
severely disrupted, affecting the whole medical supply chain. This situation
has opened up a huge opportunity for other players.
Gown market, By Type, comprises Reusable products and Disposable products.
Reusable product is expected to grow at a high rate during the forecast period.
Increasing numbers of surgeries and increasing cases of HAIs are among the key
factors expected to contribute to the growth of the segment. Doctor and
patient's clothes are primarily designed for surgery to safeguard against
different impurities. They possess specific properties related to barrier
effect, low particle release rate, purity, and tensile strength. Such
properties help prevent disease transmission, microbial transmission, or fungal
