Increasing incidences of communal and inflammatory diseases like sexually transmitted diseases and pneumococcal diseases are expected to drive the market throughout the forecast. For instance, sexually transmitted diseases (STD's) are considered as one of the most critical health challenges globally. STDs usually include more than 25-30 infectious diseases that are generally transmitted by sexual activities. According to WHO, in 2015, about 1.1 billion people had STIs other than HIV/AIDS. It is estimated that by 2019, more than 1 million sexually transmitted infections (STIs) will be acquired every day. Every year, there are an estimated 376 million new infections with 1 of 4 STIs like chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, and trichomoniasis. Thus, growing incidences of STI's is boosting the global hospital supplies market.
Pneumococcal infection is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality globally. According to the WHO, pneumonia killed over 920,000 children in 2015 and accounted for about 16% of the total deaths of children under five years old. Pneumonia can be caused by several different bacteria, viruses, and fungi. However, it is estimated that Streptococcus pneumonia bacteria cause at least two-thirds of all cases of bacterial pneumonia. Most of the deaths occurred in developing countries and included a disproportionate number of children under the age of two years.
Growing awareness of hospital-acquired infections is also boosting the market. This is owing to the presence of various initiative programs for the prevention of hospital-acquired infections is increasing awareness among healthcare professionals and patients. For instance, the CDC’s “2007 Guideline for Isolation Precautions: Preventing Transmission of Infectious Agents in Healthcare Settings” addresses all the infections that are expected in a healthcare setting. It provides tools and suggestions to build programs for isolation, when needed, at individual hospitals. In 2004, the WHO has launched a Patient safety program, urging WHO the Member States to pay attention to the problem of patient safety as a global healthcare issue. The WHO patient safety program aims to coordinate, disseminate, and accelerate improvements in patient safety worldwide. Clean Care is Safer Care (hand hygiene practices), along with Safe Surgery Saves Lives (surgical check-list) are the two best known WHO initiatives, with excellent results overall, in this field.
Technological advancement in the healthcare sector is expected to accelerate the market throughout the forecast. For instance, technological advancements such as specialized operating room tables, Light Emitting Diode (LED) lights for operating rooms, pre-filled syringes, plastic syringes, single-use syringes, and digital thermometers are expected to boost the hospital supplies market’s growth. The use of personalized medicine, telemedicine, 3D printing, Blockchain technology, AI and machine learning, etc. are some of the recent trends in the healthcare sector.
However, the emergence of home care services is restraining the market. For instance, the emergence of several home care services like Medical Social Work Services, Nursing Services, Nutritional Services, etc. is likely to hamper the market growth of hospital supplies throughout the forecast. For instance, according to the National Association for Home Care and Hospice, home care began in the US in the 1880s. According to it, approximately 12 million individuals currently receive care from more than 33,000 providers. In 2009, annual expenditures were projected to be $72.2 billion for home healthcare.
Also, the presence of home care providers will hamper the growth of the market. For instance, Home health agencies like 24 Hour Home Care® offers a variety of services to meet the needs of those who are unable to care for themselves, or who need some assistance with daily routines, or getting to doctors' appointments. According to them, by the year 2050, the US population of people over the age of 65 is expected to increase to 88 million. There are more than 2 million home health care workers providing personal care and medical services for clients across the country, and the demand for these services is expected to continue to grow as the population ages.
Based on type, the global hospital supplies market is segmented into disposable hospital supplies, patient examination devices, operating room equipment, sterilization and disinfectant equipment, mobility aids and transportation equipment, syringes and needles, and others.
The disposable segment is expected to propel the market throughout the forecast. The disposable hospital supplies are the one-time use products, such as consumables, medical apparatus, and disposable devices, which are consumed in large numbers across all hospitals. Products such as exam gowns, suction catheters, bandages and wraps, surgical sponges, gloves, face masks, hypodermic needles, needles, and others, are in continuous use to all the hospital professionals from the cleaning to the surgical theaters, as well as administrative departments in some cases. Thus, the constant growth in the adoption of these devices is owing to the rising concern of safety and cleanliness against hospital-acquired infections, as well as maintaining hygiene across the hospitals.
Based on the application, the global hospital supplies market is segmented into hospitals, clinics, and others.
The hospital's segment is expected to drive the global hospital supplies market throughout the forecast. This is attributable to the increased number of hospitals, the growing prevalence of lifestyle-based diseases like hypertension, obesity, diabetes, and raised demand for various diagnostic options. Thus, due to rising cases of diseases, hospitals, and the healthcare industry are adopting the latest medical technologies incorporated into hospital supplies to treat the patients. Also, various social capital flows to the hospital market by self-establishment, mergers and acquisitions, associates, and other forms of joint ventures are some of the significant factors that have led to the expansion of many private hospitals.
North America is dominating the global hospital supplies market in 2018 and is estimated to hold the largest market size over the forecast period (2019-2026) owing to the high focus on the cost-effective and innovative procedures adopted in the US, rising incidence of inflammatory and hospital-acquired infections, increasing prevalence for lifestyle-based diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, hypertension, and obesity in the region, and rising geriatric population at an unprecedented rate.
The rising incidence of hospital-acquired infections, inflammatory diseases, and the growing awareness about them is expected to boost the market. For instance, in American hospitals alone, the CDC has reported that HAIs account for about 1.7 million infections and 99,000 deaths every year. Of these infections, 32 % of all healthcare-acquired infections are urinary tract infections, 22 % are surgical site infections, 15 % are pneumonia (lung infections), and 14 % are bloodstream infections. The CDC estimates that there are around 20 million new sexually transmitted infections each year. The cost of STDs to the U.S. health care system is estimated to be as much as $16 billion annually in 2008.
The presence of government initiatives in the prevention of HAIs is expected to drive the market. For instance, The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, was signed into law on February 17, 2009. Within the Recovery Act, $50 million was authorized to support the states in the prevention and reduction of HAIs. Many of the funds are being used to support activities outlined in the HHS Action Plan to Prevent Health Care-Associated Infections.
The presence of significant players in the region is expected to drive the market. For instance, American Hospital Supply Corp., 3M Health Care Ltd, Cardinal Health Inc, McKesson Corp, Stryker, and Medtronic are some of the hospital supplies manufacturers prevailing in the region. Thus, it is expected to stimulate industry growth owing to the availability of affordable products.
