DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 24, 2019--

Moreover, increased spending on healthcare, growing awareness about hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) are also increasing the demand for hospital supplies market in this region.

Furthermore, GCC countries have an overall strong demand for the medical devices owing to popular medical tourism destination for several European and Asian population, raising the need of well-established and well-equipped healthcare system, hence, the hospital supplies market in GCC countries is also growing.

Key Market Trends

Operating Room Equipment Segment Estimated to Hold Significant Market Share

The public demand for operating room and emergency rooms, where critically ill patients are treated, is witnessing a steady rise. In the MEA region, increasing road traffic accidents, despite advances in safety technology, are among the primary reasons for the rising demand for operating rooms or emergency rooms, along with the necessary equipment.

Trauma cases are among the major causes of death in many African countries. There are a significant number of cases of hemiplegia, paraplegia, and quadriplegia due to road accidents in the region. It is expected that better government involvement through funding, initiatives, and collaboration with multinational companies would provide consistent growth in the operating room equipment segment, witnessing a healthy CAGR.

Competitive Landscape

The major market players include Advanced Sterilization Products Services Inc., Becton Dickinson and Company, Cardinal Health, Inc., Kimberly-Clark Corporation, 3M Health Care, and B. Braun Melsungen AG among others.

The increasing innovation and rise in investment for various public and private organizations are expected to intensify the industry rivalry across the globe. For instance, in January 2018, with the acquisition of the respiratory division of Thimar Al Jazirah Company (TAC) in Saudi Arabia, Air Liquide enters the Home Healthcare market in the Kingdom and expands its Healthcare activity in the Middle East.
