Main market trends
The sheet and pillowcase segment is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period
With the increase in the number of patients during COVID-19, the demand for hospital bed sheets and pillow covers has also increased. To minimize the transmission of the coronavirus and bring comfort to patients, disposable sheets and pillowcases are being created.
Sheets and pillow shams segment holds the largest market share and is expected to grow significantly over the projected period. Flat sheets, fitted sheets, bariatric sheets, hyperbaric sheets, stretcher sheets, mortuary sheets and delivery sheets are some of the varieties of bed sheets used in hospitals. Single and double sheets are the two types of sheets available, depending on the size of the bed. Shrink-resistant, easy-to-wash sheets are also available. These sheets also include stain-resistant features that keep them looking like new longer, reducing maintenance costs.
Moreover, the existence of a large number of hospitals in the United States stimulates the demand for products. For example, according to the American Hospital Association, in January 2021 there were 6,090 community hospitals in the United States, 208 federal government hospitals, and 625 non-federal psychiatric hospitals. As a result, the market will continue to grow as the number of hospitals increases.
Pillowcases are available in a variety of colors and sizes to meet customer needs. Pillow covers have features such as stain resistance and reducing pillow shrinkage. Product launches by major market players are expected to drive the growth of the segment. For example, in July 2021, PillowSheets launched a line of patented bed sheet products on Target.com and in Target stores across America.
North America holds a major share of the market and is expected to grow over the forecast period
North America dominated the market, owing to the growing number of surgeries and the presence of prominent players in this region. Additionally, an increase in the number of COVID-19 patients in this area has increased the demand for hospital linen supply and management services. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, in 2020, 13,281,235 minimally invasive cosmetic procedures were performed in the United States, of which 4,401,536 were botulinum toxin procedures. It was the first non-surgical procedure found in 2020. Thus, with the increase in the number of surgical procedures, the demand for hospital linen supply and management services is expected to increase during the forecast period.
However, the increasing incidence of nosocomial infections, a growing geriatric population and the subsequent growth in the prevalence of chronic diseases. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2021 there was an approximately 24% increase in central line bloodstream infections (CLABSI), and a 35% increase in ventilator-associated events (VAE) between 2019 and 2020.
To further broaden their business portfolios, these industry leaders are focusing their efforts on acquisitions, partnerships and investments. For example, in April 2020, ImageFIRST purchased Southern Medical Linen Service, a major healthcare provider. This collaboration has allowed the company to expand its customer base while continuing to provide world-class services to medical facilities throughout Georgia. Thus, North America encourages participants to enter the North American market with a greater focus on preventive healthcare facilities.
