The use of antimicrobial textiles in the healthcare sector to prevent hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) that not only cost lives but also result in enormous losses for the healthcare industry. The adoption of best practices by healthcare staff has also contributed to increased demand for safer and preventive materials to be used in healthcare centers, which is expected during the projected timeframe to drive development in the antimicrobial market. In comparison to bio-based active agents and metal & metallic salts, synthetic organic compounds are cheaper. It is expected to extend at the optimal CAGRR. Ammonium quaternary compounds, triclosan, polyhexamethylene biguanides, and organic synthetic compounds are (PHMB).
Quaternary ammonium compounds are allowed to stretch at the full CAGR. Some compounds such as triclosan and PHMB are banned in some regions of the world, which could have a detrimental impact on synthetic organic compound growth. The high efficacy of these compounds is expected to increase the market for antimicrobial textiles against a wide range of microbes.
The largest user of antimicrobial textiles is the healthcare sector. Maintaining high sanitation levels and a bacteria-free environment is important for the healthcare sector. The industry uses antimicrobial textiles in beds & towels, surgical gowns, wound dressing cloth & bandages, and curtains in order to deter infection. Manufacturers are involved in designing products that can battle hospital-acquired infections (HAI). By using antimicrobial textiles, the spread of HAI in hospitals is stopped. Antimicrobial textiles have active agents that, against a large variety of microbes, offer the fabric antimicrobial property, making them effective against curbing HAI. The increasing prevalence of infectious diseases such as chickenpox, diphtheria, tuberculosis, and others, the increasing occurrence of cross-infection, and the increasing adoption of better health care services have raised the need for antimicrobial textiles in the healthcare industry. According to a survey by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), the direct and indirect burden of HAI is around USD 97-147 billion annually in the US. Around 75,000 patients died due to HAIs in 2011. All these factors drive the healthcare industry's demand for antimicrobial textiles.
