Market Overview

Global "Skin Scrub Trays Market" is estimated to reach a CAGR during the forecast period (2022-2029).

Skin prep trays are intended for pre-operative patient preparations. All trays are engineered with a proper aseptic technique to reduce waste.

Market Dynamics

The skin scrub trays market growth is driven by various factors including increasing use of skin scrub, increased outpatient procedure, among others.

Increasing use of skin scrub is estimated to drive the skin scrub trays market

Human hands are the most principal tools for caring. Diagnose, hands feel, cure, prod, and provoke as they are placed upon each patient hoping for answers, understanding, and curatives. The hands can be a portal and transmitter of infection. While washing hands, it may be the simplest way to control infection, it is often not practiced where warranted.

Surgical site infections widely contribute to nosocomial infections. The risk factors for nosocomial infections have the behavior of Operation Room staff regarding decontamination practices, hand hygiene and antisepsis, and compliance with precautions. Most surgical professional worker agree on the importance of good surgical handwashing practices for prevention of any infection. Hand transmission is an important factor in the spread of bacteria, pathogens, viruses that cause disease, and nosocomial infections in general. Hence, the increased use of skin scrubs is estimated to increase the demand for skin scrub trays.

Increased outpatient procedure is estimated to drive the market growth

Human skin is colonized by many microorganisms known as the 'resident.' or 'normal' flora, which tends to hide deep within the sebaceous glands, hair follicles and skin folds. The skin is filled with microorganisms from body dirt, excretions, secretions, or in contact with contaminated surfaces or items ('transient' flora). While all these microorganisms are harmless on the surface of the skin, if they get into a surgical incision, they can cause surgical site infection. Soap solutions are used to physically remove dirt and remove transient microorganisms from the surface of the skin. Using antiseptic in soap solution is a way for reducing skin flora, however, there are few evidence for their efficacy in preventing Surgical Sight Infection. Some patients may have an allergic reaction to some antiseptic solutions. Several randomized controlled trials have compared the effect of chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG) 4% or povidone-iodine solutions with a plain soap, placebo solution, or no wash. Still, these have not shown that the antiseptic confers any benefit in terms of SSI prevention. Studies on the efficacy of other antiseptics compared to CHG washcloths on no bathing in preventing SSI are limited and of low quality. Therefore, there is insufficient evidence to favor their use for pre-operative washing. In 2019, an estimated 48.3 million surgical and nonsurgical procedures were performed during these visits. A total of 25.7 million (53%) ambulatory surgery procedures were conducted in hospitals, while 22.5 million (47%) were performed in ASCs. The number of outpatient surgical procedures in the United States is predicted to rise from 129 million in 2018 to 144 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 2.1 percent during the forecast period. Hence, increasing outpatient procedure is estimated to increase the skin scrub trays market

Disadvantages associated with operations is hampering the skin scrub trays market growth

The association between SSI risk and wearing nail polish by surgical team members has not been studied properly. Therefore, societies vary in their recommendations. Some investigators have revealed a direct correlation between the duration of open disclosure of instrument trays and the risk of bacterial transmission. Therefore, the timing of opening trays should occur as close to the start of the procedure as possible, with a theoretical advantage of covering trays with a sterile drape when not in use, but further study regarding timing and techniques of covering trays are needed.

Some surgeons adopt a clean closure protocol which includes changing instruments, gloves and gowns before skin closure, although no study has demonstrated a benefit of this measure on SSI rates. No well-controlled studies evaluate whether restricting the use of surgical scrubs to the OR suite or allowing them outside the OR will make a difference in Surgical Sight Infection rates. Some hospitals require covering gowns when surgeons or nurses exit the Operation Room still wearing SS. It would make sense to change soiled scrubs, worn while changing dressings onwards when surgical procedures take place, and also changing scrubs after wearing them for 8 hours or for more hours. No guidance can be made on how and where to clean scrub suits.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

COVID-19 pandemic has affected the healthcare industry. To stop its development, government-imposed lockdown. People are scared they will experience negative health and occupational effects from the COVID-19 pandemic. All the manufacturing, as well as supply chains, have been hit due to the COVID-19 restrictions. Hence, the global skin scrub trays market has seen a decrease in its market.

Segment Analysis

The dry-type segment is estimated to dominate the skin scrub trays market

The Exidine 4% CHG pre-operative skin prep tray gives extraordinary persistence and broad-spectrum death. This tray is ideal for iodine-sensitive patients. They are good for single use. The dry prep trays contain no povodine-iodine solutions. Dry skin scrub prep trays include CSR Wrap, White Absorbent Towels, 5" Ring Forceps, Cotton Tipped Applicators, 2-Compartment Tray, 3-Compartment Tray & Pair Wrapped Nitrile PF Gloves.

CURITY Covidien tray, dry skin scrub prep tray contains one CSR wrap, two white absorbent towels, 12.7cm (5") ring forceps, two cotton-tipped applicators, three sponges’ sticks, two blotting towels, and one pair of latex-free, six winged-grip sponges’ powder-free nitrile gloves. Covidien manufactures, distributes, and services medical devices. The company's products include disposable medical supplies, monitoring equipment, innovative wound closure products, advanced surgical devices, medical instruments, and bulk analgesic pharmaceuticals.

The hospital segment is estimated to dominate the skin scrub trays market

After the patient is positioned and anesthetized on the operating room table, the pre-operative skin preparation is done by the surgeon, assistant surgeon, or circulator. This means the skin of the operative site and an extensive area around the site is mechanically cleansed again with an antiseptic solution before draping. A sterile skin prep tray is opened on the prep table. Usually, the prep tray is disposable, but the prep tray always contains two or more towels, a small basin for solutions, and sponges (these sponges must not be confused with the counted sponges on the instrument tray) applicators. Sterile procedures are required during and before specific patient care activities to maintain an area free from microorganisms and prevent infection. Performing a surgical hand scrub, preparing a sterile field and applying sterile gloves are ways to minimize and prevent infection during surgeries or invasive procedures.

Skin is a source of microorganisms and a source of contamination in the OR setting. Since skin can’t be sterilized, members of the surgical team should wear gloves. The use of the surgical hand scrub is significantly to decrease the no of bacteria present on the hands and arms of the Operation Room staff. A surgical hand scrub is an antiseptic surgical scrub or antiseptic hand rub that is performed before donning surgical attire and lasts two to six minutes, depending on the product applied and policy. Studies have shown that skin bacteria increase and multiplies under surgical gloves if hands are not washed with a bar of antimicrobial soap.

In contrast, a surgical hand scrub will inhibit the growth of bacteria under gloved hands. Surgical hand scrub methods and supplies to clean hands will vary among health care facilities. Most protocols will require a microbial soap-and-water, three- to five-minute hand scrub procedure. The use of skin scrubs during operations is estimated to dominate the skin scrub trays market.

Geographical Analysis

North America is estimated to dominate the skin scrub trays market

Increasing demand of skin scrub trays in hospitals with rise in operations has contributed to the growth of the market in this region.
