Global Death Care Services Market to Reach $152.8 Billion by 2026
The death industry which for decades has been notoriously difficult to disrupt with new technologies is now rapidly transforming under the pressure exerted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Funerals in the COVID-19 era have become a low key affair and are sparsely attended which is unpreceded in most communities where until now funerals have been a social event. Covid-19 accelerated digital transformation across various industries as businesses had to move their operations online and staff remote. Live streaming of funeral services will be future even beyond the pandemic. Livestreaming of funeral services which until now was adopted to bridge the gap for friends and relatives who cannot make it to the funeral, is now witnessing accelerated adoption to meet social distancing protocols and norms. Also, with 4G and 5G technologies providing high speed internet access with robust bandwidth capabilities the traditional bottleneck associated with the variability of non-hardwired internet connections causing streaming issues is now effectively eliminated. Drive-by funerals in the United States is also growing in popularity with funeral homes setting up funeral services in parking lots where cars can drive by and pay their last respects. Given the highly contagious nature of the COVID-19 virus and lack of a viable vaccine to prevent the spread of the virus, the ensuing rise in death toll is creating new opportunities for cadaver bags. In compliance with the recommendations of WHO concerning mortuary care and post-mortem examination, leak-proof cadaver bags or body bags are expected to witness high demand in storage and transportation of COVID-19 positive dead bodies from isolation area to a morgue, crematorium or burial.
