Market key trends:
One of the key trends in the Global Disposable Surgical Sheet Market Size is the growing adoption of nonwoven sheets. Nonwoven surgical sheets are manufactured using several processes such as spunlace, needle punch, spunbond, and meltblown which offers superior fluid absorption and barrier properties as compared to woven surgical sheets. These sheets effectively absorb blood and body fluids during surgical procedures minimizing the risk of infections and delivering maximum protection to patients and healthcare providers. The non-woven structure also provides exceptional softness, strength and barrier properties.
Strength: Disposable surgical sheets are hygienic and help prevent hospital acquired infections as they are used only once. They offer convenience as they reduce laundry and sterilization requirements.
Weakness: Frequent use of disposable surgical sheets can increase hospitals’ operational costs compared to reusable fabrics. Concerns have been raised about plastic waste generated from their disposal.
Opportunity: Growing awareness about hospital acquired infections is driving demand for disposable hygienic products like surgical sheets. The COVID-19 pandemic has further boosted focus on single-use items for safety.
Threats: Stringent regulations have been placed on the use and disposal of plastic products due to environmental concerns. Alternative eco-friendly fabrics may emerge as substitutes in the future.
