Rising Prevalence of Animal Infections to Drive Market

The growing cases of zoonotic diseases or infections among animals and humans will spur opportunities for the market. The transmission of diseases through contaminated food and water has increased the need for medical clothing. Moreover, the higher incidence rate of zoonotic diseases can have an outstanding impact on the medical clothing market growth. According to the Centers for diseases control and Prevention (CDC), about 75% of the emerging infectious disease in humans originates from animals. Furthermore, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported that the outbreak of COVID-19 was caused by the pathogens. This virus is suspected to have originated from bats or snakes. For instance, in January 2020, WHO declared COVID-19 as a Public Health Emergency. However, lack of strategies and education in underdeveloped countries can dampen the market's growth in the forthcoming years.
