  • Report ID: GMI4690

Examination gowns market size is set to rise at a significant growth rate in the analysis period of 2022-2028 owing to the rapidly growing environmental pollution concerns along with the higher acceptance of user and economically friendly products worldwide. The rising number of patients undergoing surgical treatments has made way for significant medical advancements and infrastructure.

Examination or medical gowns are primarily a type of personal protective equipment utilized in health care settings as an infection-control strategy. They are largely adopted by medical professionals, like doctors and surgeons as they offer protection against infections. The gowns are also used to offer safety against disease, fungal and microbial transmission.


Based on product type, the surgical examination gowns market will witness expansion through 2028 due to the globally rising count of hospital-acquired infections and the surging obligation for preventing other bacterial and microbial infections. These gowns are increasingly preferred in surgeries as they act as a safe germ barrier for patients as well as surgeons and are comfortable to wear during the whole surgical procedure. The escalating emphasis on hygiene and cleanliness along with the rising number of hospital admissions will drive the segment growth. 


With respect to usability, the disposable examination gowns industry will expand with the rising number of innovations to offer maximum safety and comfort. The increasing need to limit the expenditure on washing, bleaching, and conditioning is expected to add momentum to the product demand. In addition, disposable gowns are widely used by medical personnel for avoiding exposure to blood, body fluids, and other infectious materials as well as to protect patients from infections. However, these gowns are not ideal for use in surgical settings that have exposure to liquid bodily and other hazardous fluids.

Europe is likely to emerge as a lucrative revenue pocket for the examination gowns market due to the escalating consumer health concerns and their hiking household incomes. The thriving emphasis on safe and hygienic treatments has led to the jump in the number of patients admitted to hospitals. This has in turn resulted in the rising threat of hospital-acquired infections in the region. According to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), over 3.1 to 4.6 million people are estimated to acquire a healthcare-associated infection (HAI) every year in acute care hospitals across Iceland, Norway, and the U.K.


In terms of competitive landscape, the examination gowns industry comprises key players, such Angelica Corporation, Standard Textile Co., Inc., AmeriPride Services Inc. (Aramark), Cardinal Health, and Medline Industries, Inc.

These companies are stressing on expanding their production capacities, and are focusing on marketing collaborative strategies, inclusive of acquisitions, mergers, and partnerships, along with new product launches to match the growing healthcare requirements and multiply their revenue sales.


For instance, in October 2020, Cardinal Health received clearance from the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) F1671 to market SMARTGOWN™, its breathable surgical gown, and SMARTGOWN™ AIR, its single-use, disposable breathable surgical gown. These products are largely worn by operating room personnel in surgical procedures.

Effect of the COVID-19 crisis on examination gowns market trends

In response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the industry for examination gowns significantly soared with the burgeoning importance of personal protective equipment to limit the spread of the infection. Long-sleeved medical gowns are largely used by health care providers to help protect them against respiratory droplets as well as to slow the infection count. The rise in the number of strategies to optimize the supply of isolation gowns is also adding to the market growth amid the outbreak.
