Therefore, the outbreak of COVID-19 is expected to further drive the global market.

The increasing number of surgeries performed is a significant factor anticipated to drive the market over the estimated period. For instance, as per Mölnlycke Health Care AB, in Europe, 70 million surgical procedures are performed annually. As such, hospital bedsheets being a critical requirement for surgical procedures, are likely to witness high demand over the forecast period.

Likewise, according to the CDC, about 655,000 Americans die from heart disease annually, that’s 1 in every 4 deaths. The CDC also states that 6 in 10 adults in the U.S. have a chronic disease, and 4 in 10 adults suffer from 2 or more chronic diseases. Thus, a rising patient pool leads to an increase in hospitalizations, thereby boosting the product demand.

The growing occurrence of Hospital-Acquired Infections (HAIs) owing to the lack of sanitation is also contributing to market growth. According to WHO Fact Sheet, hundreds of millions of patients develop Healthcare-Associated Infections (HCAIs) globally each year.

Thus, increasing incidence of these infections is expected to boost the demand for bedsheets pillow covers as they provide general protection against contamination and can help lower the risk of contracting HAIs. Furthermore, they can prevent bacterial and other microbial infections from entering a patient’s body. These factors are anticipated to propel market growth over the forecast period.
