The value chain of healthcare fabrics starts with raw material suppliers. Healthcare fabrics manufacturers use various types of raw-materials such as natural and manmade or synthetic fibers. These raw materials are mainly derived from natural resources and are then processed chemically in order to get the desired characteristics. The next stage involves manufacturing and processing activities, which consist of converting natural and manmade fibers into yarns. This process includes spinning, weaving, knitting, forming, and finishing. After this, the yarn is converted to fabric through the weaving, knitting, or non-woven processes. The next stage involves chemical and mechanical pretreatment, coloration, and finishing steps to provide special properties, such as chemical resistance, thermal insulation, high tear strength, thermal stability, fire resistance, and waterproofing. These textiles are then used in the manufacture of various products including hygiene products, privacy curtains, dressing products, and others. A majority of the companies in the healthcare fabrics market are vertically integrated, which means that they produce fabrics as well as the final products. For example, Kimberly-Clark Corporation (US) purchases raw material for the production of fibers, which are then used to produce final products such as sanitary napkins and baby diapers. However, companies such as Designtex (US), Maharam Corporation (US), and Knoll, Inc. (US) produce fabrics used in the privacy curtains, upholstery, and other applications.

The healthcare fabrics market is estimated at USD 9.48 Billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 12.90 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.4% from 2017 to 2022. Rising consumer awareness regarding hygiene products, coupled with the improved quality of healthcare fabrics are key factors expected to drive the growth of the healthcare fabrics market during the forecast period.

On the basis of the raw material, the healthcare fabrics market has been classified into polypropylene, cotton, polyester, viscose, polyamide, and others (polyurethane, polyethylene, and vinyl). The polypropylene subsegment is projected to lead the healthcare fabrics market during the forecast period due to the high demand from hygiene products. However, the polyester segment of the healthcare fabrics market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR majorly due to its low cost.

Based on the fabric type, the healthcare fabrics market has been subsegmented into non-woven, woven, and knitted. The demand for healthcare fabrics is high from the non-woven segment due their excellent absorption properties, softness, smoothness, strength, comfort and fit, stretchability, and cost-effectiveness.

Based on application, the healthcare fabrics market has been subsegmented into hygiene products (sanitary napkins and baby diapers), dressing products, clothing, blanket & bedding, privacy curtains, upholstery, and others (adult diapers, surgical hosiery, and orthopedic appliances). The demand for healthcare fabrics is expected to be high from the hygiene products segment due to an increase in the consumption of sanitary napkins and baby diapers in the emerging countries of the Asia Pacific. Moreover, rising awareness and growing disposable incomes coupled with the rising numbers in the new born and menstruating populations is expected to fuel the growth of the healthcare fabrics market in hygiene products.

The healthcare fabrics market has been studied for Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, the Middle East & Africa, and South America. Europe is the largest market for healthcare fabrics across the globe, majorly due to strong consumer awareness, high purchasing power, as well as significant investments in healthcare facilities by governments of European countries.

The Asia Pacific healthcare fabrics market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Improving standards of living, increased focus towards the use of personal hygiene products, and growing populations are primarily responsible for the high consumption of healthcare fabrics in the Asia Pacific region.

Healthcare Fabrics Market

Rising consumer awareness regarding hygiene products is expected to drive the healthcare fabrics market during the forecast period. Awareness in the baby diapers market is increasing majorly due to the aggressive promotions and advertising by the major market players. Moreover, innovations in products contribute to rising competition among market leaders, which further helps in introducing premium products in the market.
