The global medical non-woven disposables market is expected to grow rapidly during the forecast period, owing to the increasing prevalence of infectious diseases such as AIDS and hepatitis and increasing demand for clean, sanitary and disposable products for the safety of patients and doctors. Additionally, the rise in the number of surgical procedures (inpatient and outpatient) and the adoption of advanced home healthcare are some of the factors driving the growth of the global medical non-woven disposables market.

As stringent regulations are being adopted by the hospitals, R&D institutes, and pharmaceutical R&D for the safety of healthcare workers, demand for the nonwoven products such as facial masks, gowns, drapes, gloves, and wipes are increasing and is thus responsible for driving the growth of the global non-woven disposables market.

However, lack of disposable facilities at the waste management center for used or infected non-woven products is the rising concern responsible for restraining the global medical non-woven disposables market. These products are harmful and infectious if not disposed of properly as they pose a threat to the environment. Also, lack of fabric strength and durability, the high tendency of pilling and high cost of raw material are some of the factors restraining the growth of the non-woven disposables market.
