Surgical scrubs continue to be one of the largest opportunities in the global medical scrubs market. Surgical scrubs are essential for surgeons and operating room staff to wear during surgical procedures to maintain sterile conditions and protect patients from infections. With rising volumes of surgeries being performed globally each year, primarily driven by an aging population and increasing incidence of chronic and lifestyle diseases, the demand for high-quality surgical scrubs is also increasing. Key players are focusing on launching new product lines and designer collections of surgical scrubs made with breathable fabrics and advanced designs for enhanced comfort and protection.

The disposable scrubs segment accounts for a significant share of the global medical scrubs market and presents another major growth opportunity. Disposable scrubs are preferred over reusable scrubs in hospitals and healthcare facilities due to their hygienic and low maintenance characteristics. With greater emphasis on infection control and prevention of hospital-acquired infections, the demand for disposable scrubs is growing. Manufacturers are innovating disposable scrub designs made of non-woven fabric blends that are lightweight, environmentally sustainable and provide durability with single-use functionality. This is expected to further boost sales of disposable scrubs in the coming years.
