The global surgical drapes market size was valued at USD 1.7 billion in 2022, driven by the increasing prevalence of surgical site infections across the globe. The market size is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period of 2023-2031 to achieve a value of USD 2.5 billion by 2031.
Surgical drapes are sterile sheets that are typically used during a surgical procedure to create a sterile field. These sheets are designed to protect the patient from contamination and further prevent the infection from spreading. Surgical drapes are made from various materials, such as cotton and polyester. Surgical drapes can also maintain the appropriate airflow and temperature in an operating room. Surgical drapes are typically made from woven or non-woven fabric. Surgical drapes are also made out of synthetic fibers, such as polypropylene and polyester. The fabric of the surgical drape is selected based on its requirements, such as moisture management and colour fastness.
The growth of the market is driven by continuous innovation and development, coupled with increased clinical trials for further approvals. For example, recently a randomized controlled trial was conducted for innovatively designed surgical drapes that alleged the reduction in fluid permeability in the Surgical Critical Area of a Sterile Operation Interface. Such innovations are expected to add further value to the surgical drapes market share.
Additionally, a clinical study for the analysis of the efficacy and safety of surgical drapes during intravitreal injection was also conducted recently. The development and launch of new and innovative products by the key players in the market are also expected to drive the global surgical drapes market growth during the forecast period. For example, Cardinal Health has developed a new and unique technology, the Cardinal Health CHG surgical incise drapes with BeneHold™ CHG adhesive technology. These drapes minimize the possibility of contamination leading to SSI. Surgical site infections (SSIs) are a costly and avoidable risk for both healthcare workers and patients, impacting the market growth.
Furthermore, this innovation is one of its kind, the first surgical incise drape with CHG [chlorhexidine gluconate], which helps healthcare professionals/surgeons in reducing the risk of surgical site infections. Cardinal Health CHG surgical incise drapes, with BeneHold™ CHG adhesive technology (from Avery Dennison), are safe for use on patients with fragile or sensitive skin because the drapes are removed with convenience after the completion of the surgery. The drapes also meet ISO and FDA requirements for cytotoxicity, irritation, acute systemic toxicity, skin sensitization, and pyrogenicity.

The growth of the market is primarily being driven by the increasing number of surgical procedures, driven by sports injuries, accidents, and the rising incidence of cardiovascular diseases and other chronic conditions that often require surgical intervention. These procedures necessitate the use of surgical gowns and drapes, significantly aiding the global surgical drape market share.
Additionally, the growing emphasis on patient and healthcare worker protection, along with the rising concern about surgical site infections, has fuelled the demand for high-quality surgical drapes and gowns, further influencing the growth of the market.
North America has emerged as a dominant region in the global market for surgical drapes. This dominance is attributed to the presence of well-established market players, a significant increase in surgical procedures in the region, coupled with the growing awareness about the importance of infection control in preventing surgical site infections. The market is expected to experience further growth for the forecast period followed by all the factors mentioned above.
