The report analyses the antimicrobial hospital textiles market’s drivers, restraints/challenges, and their effect on the demands during the projection period. In addition, the report explores emerging opportunities in the antimicrobial hospital textiles market.

Antimicrobial Hospital Textiles Market: Overview

Antibacterial hospital woven fabrics have gained popularity in recent years due to their ability to reduce the transmission of infectious bacteria in the medical and healthcare sectors. To combat rapidly mutating bacteria, the textile industry has developed an antibacterial solution for fabrics in which a germicidal mixture is added during the fabric’s manufacturing process. The antibacterial properties of fiber can improve the performance and shelf life of products with pleasant odors.

The proportion of the elderly population is increasing with the adoption of the advanced healthcare system, and the increasing demand for health care products such as adult urinals, baby diapers, facial tissues, and women’s products are a potential business driver of the antimicrobial textile market. However, the high cost and availability of raw materials are the main factors that negatively affect the market, especially during the global pandemic when the demand for this product is higher than usual.

Antimicrobial Hospital Textiles Market: Growth Drivers

The rising consumer awareness about hygiene aids the global market growth

With literacy rates and awareness campaigns increasing, consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the potential risks of microorganisms to textiles and garment users. The demand for antibacterial hospital textiles is growing due to improved hygiene awareness, increasing disposable income, changing lifestyles, rising health concerns, and increasing pollution. The growth of the healthcare industry has also significantly fueled the demand for hospital antibacterial textiles. All these factors are expected to drive the global antibacterial hospital textiles market.

Antimicrobial Hospital Textiles Market: Restraints

The fluctuation in raw material prices may hamper the global market growth

Raw materials for weaving antibacterial hospital fabrics include fibers such as cotton, which are treated with antimicrobial agents such as silver, copper, zinc, and quaternary ammonium compounds (QACs). The prices of some commodities are listed on the commodity market, which is tradable on the stock market, resulting in daily price fluctuations. Therefore, prices depend on market forces. Price fluctuations can add to already high production costs. This can further affect the supply and demand of the product, which will act as a drag on the market.

Antimicrobial Hospital Textiles Market: Opportunities

Technological advancement and increasing research activities bring up several growth opportunities

Researchers and manufacturers favor antibacterial textile fabrics due to their ability to provide quality and safety for users. Researchers constantly try to develop skin-friendly, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly products. New materials and activators are being developed to replace existing environmentally harmful active substances such as triclosan and PHMB. Manufacturers try to differentiate their products by using different active substances or fabrics to gain market share. They use another method to impart antibacterial properties to the material. Continued research and technological advancements are expected to create vast opportunities for manufacturers of hospital antibacterial textiles.

Antimicrobial Hospital Textiles Market: Segmentation

The global antimicrobial hospital textiles market is segregated based on material, usability, FDA class, application, hospital department, and region.

By material, the market is divided into cotton, polyester, polyamide, and others. Among these, cotton is the most essential material in the general antibacterial hospital textile market. Indeed, cotton is susceptible to microbial attack, as it is a natural plant fiber. The nature of cotton is very soft and feels comfortable in contact with the skin. Due to its relaxing properties, it is used more than other antibacterial hospital textile materials. This factor is driving demand for cotton in the antibacterial hospital textile market.

By application, the global antimicrobial hospital textiles market is bifurcated into attire, surgical supplies & wipes, sheets & blankets, and others. Over the forecast period, attire is the biggest application in the forecast period. The clothes of doctors, patients, and hospital staff must be hygienic as they can be a source of HAIs. Patients with weak immunity are more susceptible to infections. Apparel is used to protect hospital staff and prevent HAIs and is a mandatory practice in hospitals. Therefore, the demand for antibacterial fabric in garment applications is very high.
