Growing Trend Towards Disposables Surgical Gowns in India

From $1196.74 million in 2018, the market in India for surgical gowns and other medical disposables is expected to reach $1736.26 million by 2025.

These disposable surgical gowns and drapes are among the essential supplies owing to the current pandemic caused by the deadly coronavirus known as COVID-19, facemasks, gloves, and other necessary medical supplies.

As a direct result of the pandemic, there has been a significant surge in demand for disposable gowns designed for medical and surgical procedures.

What Is a Disposable Surgical Gown?

The disposable surgical gowns are a barrier of protection between the surgeon and the patient during surgery by shielding the two from any potential pathogens or other contaminants in the operating room and keeping the space as germ-free as possible.

What Factors Are Propelling Disposable Medical Gowns Demand?

Disposable medical gowns are being used extensively because of the increased prevalence of infectious illnesses and the escalating danger of new infections. The implementation of fears about pathogen exposure in diseases like Hepatitis B, SARS, Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Ebola, hemorrhagic fever, Hepatitis C,  and, most lately, Covid-19, is becoming more and more apparent to hospitals.

Fastest-growing Disposable Medical Hospital Gowns Market

The Indian market is anticipated to expand the fastest during the projection period. This market is expected to be driven by rising patient confidentiality in safety standards and industrial investment in advanced medical treatment facilities or regarding global hospital gowns.

In India, hospitals frequently hire private companies to care for their laundry and linen needs. People are increasingly aware of the causes of illnesses that develop in hospitals and devote more attention to hospital hygiene.

Market Overview


The disposable surgical gowns and drapes market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.6% over the forecast timeframe (2022-2027).

The COVID-19 epidemic badly impacted almost every element of the world economy, along with the global supply chain. At first, factories were shut, or their output was hindered; many nations placed trade restrictions, and transportation slowed or suspended. Personal protective equipment (PPE) has become more popular globally due to emerging illnesses such as hepatitis B, hepatitis C, SARS, COVID-19, and Ebola hemorrhagic fever. The need for personal protective equipment (PPE) like surgical masks, gloves, and gowns has increased dramatically in retail pharmacies since the COVID-19 epidemic began.

Additionally, the market participants were trying to accommodate the growing demands for surgical drapes, gowns, and other items.  As a result, COVID-19 has greatly influenced market expansion.

The key factor influencing the surgical drapes and hospital gowns market is the rise in surgical operations related to sports accidents and cardiac surgeries because of the rising frequency of cardiovascular illnesses and other chronic ailments where surgery is recommended. Due to the expanding need for patient and medical worker safety and the incidence of surgical site infections, surgical drapes are also in great demand. Based on the Annual National Report, 2020, hospitals in India reported 464 infections at surgical sites in children and 18,416 surgical site infections in adults in 2020. The requirement for surgical gowns is caused by a high incidence of infections, which is predicted to fuel market expansion.

The strategic actions that market players take also contribute to the market's expansion. The prevention of postoperative SSIs and consequences can be achieved by establishing a normothermic treatment standard for each patient.

Report Scope

According to the scope of this study, surgical drapes are utilised during procedures to keep surfaces, equipment, and the patient's surroundings clean and to avoid contact with germs. Similarly, a surgical gown is a necessary safety item designed to be worn by medical staff during surgical operations to protect them from passing pathogens, bodily fluids, and suspended particles to the patient.
