Medical Clothing Demand is On the Rise as More than 316 million People Undergo Surgeries and over 500 people are Diagnosed with Chronic Diseases

As per a recent study by SkyQuest, the demand for medical clothing is increasing with the growing prevalence of chronic diseases and increasing number of surgeries. This means that manufacturers of medical clothing need to expand their production to meet the needs of patients and healthcare professionals. Globally more than 30% of the population is having one or multiple chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, among others.  As per recent findings by SkyQuest in global medical clothing market that at least 1.7% of the global population is diagnosed with cancer and more than 10 million people die each with the cause. As per recent estimated by CDC, more than 27.5 million are expected to be diagnosed with cancer by 2024. This represent how the prevalence of chronic diseases are contributing to the growing number of hospitalizations. In fact, more than 80% of cancer patients and more than 83% of cardiovascular patients are required to be hospitalized at least once in their lifetime.

One study found that the number of people who require medical clothing has increased by 28% over the past decade, which is likely due to an increase in the number of chronic diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease. Furthermore, more surgeries are now being performed on a routine basis, which also contributes to increased demands for medical clothing. As of July 2022, more than 316 million surgeries are performed each year. 143 million additional surgeries are needed each year in LMICs in order to save lives and prevent disability. Only 6.8% of the approximately 316 million surgical procedures performed each year occur in the poorest countries, where over a third of the world's population lives.

SkyQuest Study Suggests 1.5 Billion People Hospitalized in 2021, 17% Increase than 2020

Every year, millions of people are hospitalized due to a variety of injuries and illnesses. Injuries can come from accidents, crime, or natural disasters. Illnesses can come from accidents, disease, or the weather. Worldwide, there are an estimated 1.5 billion hospitalizations each year. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the most common illnesses are respiratory infections (including tuberculosis and pneumonia), cardiovascular diseases, and cancer. Due to their prevalence, these latter three illnesses account for more than 60% of all global hospitalizations, and contribute significantly to growth of the global medical clothing market.

As per recent findings by SkyQuest, an estimated 1 in 5 people are expected to hospitalized at some point during their lifetime across the globe. This marks a 4% increase from 2000–2010, when an estimated 1 in 4 people were hospitalized. The most common cause of hospitalization is heart disease, which accounts for about one-third of all stays. Approximately 41% of all hospitalizations are due to infections, 31% are due to stroke or hypertension, and 10% are due to chronic kidney disease or other coexisting conditions.

There are an estimated 1.5 million people who are hospitalized each year in the United States. This number includes both people who are admitted to the hospital and people who are treated at an outpatient clinic or emergency room. About 60% of these people are discharged from the hospital within one day, and 40% are discharged within seven days. Far more people (3.5 million) are treated in hospital outpatient departments each year. This has generated a huge growth potential for medical clothing market as the number of hospitalizations is driving up the demand for medical clothing for patients and physicians.

The hospital industry is seeing an increase in the number of patients who are being hospitalized and requiring clothes for both work and recovery. In addition, hospital clothing is in high demand as the number of hospitalizations continues to increase. In fact, the International Labor Organization (ILO) projects that there will be an additional 1.5 million job opportunities for nurses by the end of 2023, which would create higher demand for medical clothing.
