Market Insights
Growing Burden of Healthcare-Associated Infection Drives Market Growth

Healthcare-associated infections are the most frequent and adverse events in the healthcare sectors worldwide. Millions of patients get affected by these infections every year, which lead to increase in mortality rate and financial losses to healthcare systems. According to the World Health Organization, in every 100 hospitalized patients, 7 in developed and 10 in developing countries would acquire at least one healthcare-associated infection. The prevalence of healthcare-associated infections in developed countries falls in the range of 3.5–12%. Similarly, according to estimates by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, with ~4,544,100 episodes, healthcare-associated infections affect 4,131,000 patients per year in Europe. A recent European multicenter study reports that 51% of the infected patients are admitted to intensive care unit, and ~30% of the ICU patients are affected by at least one episode of healthcare-associated infections. Longer the span of patients ICU admission, more is the possibility of gaining the infections. The median rate of infection among adult high-risk patients is 17 episodes per 1,000 patient days. The use of invasive devices, such as central lines, urinary catheters, and ventilators is linked to the high frequency of infection. Gloves are personal protective wear that creates a barrier between germs and human body and prevents the spread of disease-causing germs in the hospitals. Gloves help keep hands clean and reduce the chance of germ spread that can make patients or healthcare professionals sick. Healthcare professionals should wear gloves while touching blood, bodily fluids, bodily tissues, mucous membranes, or broken skin, even if a patient seems healthy and has no signs of infection. Therefore, gloves play an important role in avoiding infections among patients as well as health care workers, which is expected to drive the demand for surgical gloves in healthcare sector.
