Disposable medical supplies have gathered increasing pace in the healthcare industries in recent decades, and is driven by the rising focus of healthcare providers to contain the risks of infections. Their use occupies a vital role in managing intrahospital infections. Rising incidence of infectious diseases and the disproportionate pace of growth in the healthcare infrastructure have led to rising possibilities of infections passing from patients to clinicians. The use of disposable medical supplies as a protective measure for patients and physicians has generated widespread interest in various regions across the globe. This has underpinned the rapid evolution of the disposable medical supplies market.
