U.S. Disposable Medical Supplies Market to Swell to $47B in 2016

Recent research conducted by Reportlinker shows U.S. demand for disposable medical supplies is forecast to increase 4.3 percent annually to $46.7 billion in 2016.


An expanding volume of patient care activity, spurred by aging demographic patterns, a rising incidence of diseases and disorders, and the extension of health insurance coverage by the health reform law, will promote growth. Demand for disposable medical supplies will also drive growth as hospitals, outpatient facilities and other healthcare establishments adopt stricter infection prevention safeguards to meet stronger standards.
