The disposable medical supplies market in North America is expected to grow by 6.5% annually and reach $106.9 billion by 2030. Factors contributing to this growth include:

  • Increasing incidence of disease and disorders
  • The medical supply needs of an aging population
  • Rising incidence of Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs)
  • Reference towards the low-cost disposable medical supplies amid COVID-19

This increased demand for disposable medical products and supplies is occurring as environmental solutions are also becoming a greater priority for all manufacturing industries. The makers of disposable medical supplies will be needing cost-effective “green” processes and materials in order to develop a new generation of eco-friendly disposable medical products.
