Consumption Analysis of Hospital Supplies 2016-2020 Vs Future Outlook 2021-2031

From 2016 to 2020, sales of hospital supplies increased by a CAGR of 3% amid the increasing need for protection for patients from hospital acquired viral, fungal, and bacterial infections.

Demand accelerated substantially in 2020, amid the outbreak of COVID-19, as exponentially rising infection cases prompted caregivers to utilize disposable and reusable protective gear.

The increase in preventative measures being taken to manage and control hospital-acquired infections is likely to help the hospital supplies market (HAIs). Patients get HAIs, often known as nosocomial infections while receiving medical or surgical treatment.

The rising number of surgical procedures indicates that the hospital supplies market has a lot of room to grow. Surgical packs, gowns, drapes, gloves, and feeding tubes are among the most commonly used hospital items. According to Fact.MR, the market is poised to grow at over 3% CAGR until 2031.

How is Digitization of Healthcare Spurring Hospital Supplies Demand?

Digital technology is assisting the healthcare industry and increasing demand for hospital supplies, particularly in hospitals, as they transition to a new patient-centered care model and develop smart health approaches to improve access, improve quality, increase affordability, and lower costs.

Adoption of digital technologies, including AI, telehealth platforms, virtual services, and home diagnostics acquired massive traction, especially since the emergence of COVID-19. Hence, demand for advanced monitors, servers and other hospital-grade smart devices has surged, providing opportunities for future expansion.

How is Emergence of Home Care Services Influencing Market Demand?

To lower surgery and post-procedure costs for patients, several healthcare institutions are either partnering with traditional home healthcare services or establishing their own home healthcare services.

The rise in the use of home healthcare services, as well as the availability of government reimbursement in industrialized nations such as the United States, is posing a significant challenge to the hospital supply industry. The market's growth is also hampered by the market's strict regulatory structure and the rise of personalized medicine.

How has COVID-19 Impacted the Hospital Supplies Industry?

In 2020, the outbreak of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) initially generated crunches in the demand supply equation of the hospital supplies market, as supply chains were disrupted due to trade restrictions, with healthcare organizations struggling to procure medical equipment.

However, with healthcare products being designated as essential services, this shortfall was offset. Given the highly contagious nature of the disease, caregivers and patients alike are encouraged to wear disposable medical gowns, gloves, coats, and other PPE gear. This trend is expected to continue even in the post-pandemic scenario, as surging rates of HAIs will compel patients to seek surgeries in protective gear.
