Report ID: GMI4296
Antimicrobial hospital curtains size is expected to grow significantly from 2019 to 2025.
The antimicrobial hospital curtains market is estimated to witness lucrative growth over the coming years owing to increasing concern about the transmission of microorganisms via hospital curtains, which are majorly used consumables. Antimicrobial hospital curtains reduce the growth of microorganism bacteria and funges. Curtains with antimicrobial properties are now available in the healthcare facilities. Healthcare facilities majorly require a special type of curtains that are fabricated from 100% antifungal and antimicrobial material to keep the hospital surroundings hygienic and clean. Furthermore, the use of antimicrobial curtains could increase the time between washings and might play a major role in decreasing pathogen transmission. This factor would further increase the adoption of antimicrobial hospital curtains and grow the market revenue.
Also, disposable antimicrobial hospital curtains require no laundering and reduce the costly initial capital expenditure. Antimicrobial curtains are proven cost-effective infection prevention solution for healthcare facilities and are considered as an integral part of end-user facilities. Some of the benefits of using antimicrobial curtains are recyclable, safe, easy to remove and install, international flame-retardant approvals, and lightweight. Thus, antimicrobial hospital curtains are significantly considered as a cost-saving alternative over traditional textile curtains.
Moreover, lack of providing single room accommodation for patients in developing regions increases the demand for antimicrobial curtains. This would drive the antimicrobial curtains market growth in developing countries. However, lack of awareness regarding the importance of antimicrobial hospital curtains in the healthcare facilities of lower-middle-income countries might hamper the market growth.
The polypropylene material segment marked a significant revenue share in 2018 and is projected to follow a similar trend during the forecast period. There is growing adoption of antimicrobial curtains due to polypropylene materials residual activity against a broad spectrum of pathogens. Polypropylene material ensures that pathogenic microorganisms are killed quickly upon contact. Also, the antimicrobial chemical is added at the polypropylene mixing stage. Therefore, the material is inherently antibacterial, not just the surface of the curtain. These material properties contribute to segmental revenue share.
Hospitals end-use segment should witness significant growth during the forthcoming years owing to the increasing transmission of infectious disease in hospitals. This has led to the adoption of various parameters to reduce transmission. Due to the increasing number of hospital admissions, antimicrobial curtains are majorly used in hospital to inhibit the spread and growth of the bacterial disease. These antimicrobial curtains help to promote a safe and healthy environment with infection rates.
Asia Pacific antimicrobial hospital curtains market is anticipated to grow rapidly over the coming years. This is majorly due to the growing encouragement of best practices among the health workers, the general public, and policymakers to avoid the further spread and emergence of antibiotic resistance. Several government initiatives are taking place to increase awareness of global antibiotic resistance. This is implemented through effective education, communication, and training. Furthermore, the growing number of infections in the region also possesses a demand for antimicrobial hospital curtains.
Some of the major notable players operating in the antimicrobial curtains include Elers Medical, Endurocide Limited, Hospital Curtain Solutions, National Surgical Corporation, Hangzhou Xiang Jun Textile Flame Retardant Technology, ANGLO MIDDLE EAST, Tracks2Curtains, Jiangsu Saikang Medical Equipment, EcoMed Technologies, and RD Plast. Companies are finding various ways to reduce hospital-acquired infections (HAI’s), as growing antibiotic resistance, common pathogens could lead to a global increase in hospital-acquired infection cases worldwide. Elers Medical provides unique and innovative solutions to face these challenges. Presently, the company design and manufacture over 30 different infection control products, the latest product group being the antimicrobial disposable curtains. In August 2017, the company launched moomin printed antimicrobial and untreated disposable pediatric curtains to enhance the stay of children in hospitals.
