Summary Methodology

Hospital Linen Supply and Management Services Market size is projected to experience significant growth from 2019 to 2025.

Growing demand for adequate hygienic and health conditions in the healthcare sector will stimulate global hospital linen supply and management services market growth in the upcoming years. The textiles and fabrics used in hospitals or any other healthcare system are a source of contamination. Increasing hospitalizations owing to the rise in chronic diseases and expanding geriatric population pool are key factors that will drive market growth over the foreseeable period. According to the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), nearly 7 in 10 people die due to chronic diseases in the U.S. every year. With growing chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and obesity, the hospitalizations will eventually increase, thereby increasing the need for standard hygienic conditions.

Growing prevalence of nosocomial infections such as pneumonia, urinary tract infections, tuberculosis, and fungal infections will upsurge hospital linen supply and management services market size over the forecast period. According to a survey conducted by the World Health Organization in 14 countries, nearly 1.4 million people are affected by nosocomial infections every year. With rising nosocomial infections, the demand for preventive services will increase, thereby increasing the need for linen management.

Bedsheets and pillow cover segment will hold a significant share over the forecast years. The growth is attributed to increasing number of hospitals and the availability of various kinds of bed sheets. Additionally, advantages of bedsheets including stain-release properties that make them look newer will increase their demand.

Non-woven material linen segment will dominate over the projected timeframe owing to advancements in manufacturing technologies. Several advantages by the use of non-woven linens such as ease of customization, low cost, robustness, light weight, environmental awareness, and easy disinfection will highly impact non-woven material linen segment revenue share over the upcoming years. However, it cannot be washed or reused and requires proper disposal facilities.

The use of linens in the hospital segment is anticipated to grow at a significant pace due to increasing number of private and public hospitals. Rising prevalence of hospital-acquired infections will increase the adoption of preventive healthcare measures by hospitals. Furthermore, increasing patient care facilities and maintenance of adequate hygiene in hospitals will escalate the segment growth. 

U.S. hospital linen supply and management services market will foresee a significant expansion due to the presence of well-established infrastructure and strict policies for hygiene and safety. The growing number of hospitals and a rising prevalence of nosocomial infections in the region will further escalate the business growth in the foreseeable future. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 1.7 million hospital-associated infections contribute to 99,000 deaths each year in the U.S. Additionally, guidelines for cleaning and reusing the linens provided by the Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council (HLAC) will positively affect market growth.

India hospital linen supply and management services market is expected to grow at a momentous pace due to expanding patient population pool and improved healthcare system. The competitors are eyeing upon the region, as most of the hospitals in India outsource their linen requirements from third parties. Indian hospitals spend almost one-third of their earnings on linen procurement. Moreover, increasing prevalence of nosocomial infections and growing geriatric population base will majorly impact India hospital linen supply and management services industry growth during the forecast period.
