The global Hospital Linen Supply And Management Services market size was valued at US$ 18.4 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 16.3% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.
The increase in the prevalence of epidemics and pandemics, such as Ebola, COVID-19, and SARS, and rising awareness towards surgical site infections are the key factors driving the market.
Outsourcing of hospital linen supply and management services is preferred over in-house due to various advantages. Outsourcing is a convenient option for laundry of a large number of linen clothes. The majority of key players provide regular laundry service to healthcare facilities, which reduces the chances of contamination. This, in turn, is anticipated to drive the market over the forecast period.
Outsourcing helps healthcare facilities to focus on their core competencies, workers, and various materials required for laundry. In addition, it saves time and money for upgrading equipment. Moreover, in-house laundry requires a huge investment in installing and maintaining the laundry facility. Therefore, an increase in the number of outsourced laundry services to the key players is boosting their revenue, which drives the market. Hospitals opt for outsourcing of linen supplies such as uniforms, gowns, bedsheets, pillow covers, towels, and medical apparel to maintain hygiene. This, in turn, is expected to drive the market over the forecast period.
The bedsheet and pillow cover segment held the largest revenue share of 46.2% in 2019. The segment is anticipated to witness considerable growth in the market for hospital linen supply and management services over the forecast period. Bed sheets used in the hospitals are of various types such as flat sheets, fitted sheets, bariatric sheets, hyperbaric sheets, gurney sheets, mortuary sheets, and birthing sheets. These sheets are categorized on the basis of the size of the bed as single bed sheets and double bed sheets. In addition, companies offer bed sheets that are shrink-resistant and are easily washable. These bedsheets also have stain release properties, which makes them look newer for a longer duration, thereby reducing maintenance expenses. Pillow covers are also available in different colors and sizes depending on the need of the customers. Pillow covers have features such as stain resistance and they minimize shrinkage of the pillow.
The bathing and cleaning accessories segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth rate in the market for hospital linen supply and management services over the forecast period. This can be attributed to the increasing awareness about hygiene standards and the need for sanitation maintenance in healthcare facilities. It includes wipes, washcloths, and various types of towels such as bath, hand, and face towels. Bathing and cleaning accessories are available as disposable as well as reusable products. Maintenance and dry cleaning services for these clothes are provided by various companies such as Unitex Textile Rental Services, Inc.; E-town Laundry Company; and Healthcare Services Group, Inc.
The non-woven segment dominated the market for hospital linen supply and management services and held the largest revenue share of 48.7% in 2019. The segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period. The segment majorly includes protective materials such as hospital gowns, drapes, and sheets used during surgeries. The products are specially made for the aforementioned purposes as they have certain advantages over traditional materials, such as an added barrier to the infectious microorganisms, durability, and involve easy recycling procedures after appropriate sterilization.
The increasing demand for hospital gowns, drapes, and medical sheets due to the rising hospital admissions owing to the pandemic outbreak across the globe is one of the major factors influencing segment growth. Furthermore, in order to meet the growing demand for hospital gowns, the World Health Organization has appealed to the industries and government to increase the manufacturing of hospital gowns by 40.0%.
The contractual segment dominated the hospital linen supply and management services market and held the largest revenue share of 48.9% in 2019. Contractual services are gaining popularity due to an increase in the number of services pertaining to linen and a rise in the number of hospitals, beds, and working professionals.
Contractual laundry saves space and resources in the hospitals; therefore, the hospitals are able to focus more on their core competencies. It also acts as a cost-curbing tool employed by the hospitals, as they do not have to spend on the installation of the systems and hire professionals for the services.
The hospital segment dominated the market for hospital linen supply and management services and is anticipated to witness a considerable growth rate over the forecast period. The hospital segment dominated the market with a revenue share of more than 50.0% in 2019 due to the rising number of patient admissions in hospitals for surgeries and treatments for COVID-19. As per a study conducted by the University of California, San Francisco in 2016, on average, more than 2000 tons of waste is generated by operating rooms per day, of which a significant portion of waste is from disposable medical supplies. Thus, such high usage of medical disposables in the hospital may promote segment growth in the market for hospital linen supply and management services over the forecast period.
The diagnostic centers segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth in the market for hospital linen supply and management services over the forecast period. Diagnostic centers require linen for beds, gowns, and apparel for patients as well as the staff. Apparels for patients are available in both reusable and disposable categories. In addition, the linen can be rented from various companies, which are later washed and dry cleaned based on the industry’s hygiene standards. The linen required by diagnostic centers include diagnostic pants, diagnostic gowns, bath blankets, towels, lab coats, scrubs, sheets, pillowcases, patient gowns, and washcloths.
North America dominated the market for hospital linen supply and management services and held the largest revenue share of 42.1% in 2019. This is owing to the increasing number of surgeries and the presence of key market players in this region. In addition, an increase in the number of COVID-19 patients in this region has spurred the demand for hospital gowns. As per a report published by the WHO on 20th April 2020, more than 33,909 existing cases were reported and more than 1,509 new confirmed cases were detected in Canada. Moreover, the number of cases is expected to increase exponentially over the next month or two. Such factors are anticipated to increase the demand for hospital linen supply and management services in the region.
In Asia Pacific, the market for hospital linen supply and management services is expected to witness the fastest growth rate over the forecast period, owing to its increasing geriatric population and prevalence of cardiovascular diseases. Moreover, Asia Pacific has been one of the worst-hit regions by COVID-19. China and South Korea have reported a very high number of COVID-19 cases. In addition, the densely populated pockets in this region are making it easier for community transmission of the virus. Such a high number of potential patients in this region is anticipated to drive the market for hospital linen supply and management services over the forecast period.
