Traditional hospital curtains have the potential to become sources of pathogenic transmission as Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs), such as C.difficile spores and MRSA, can remain on the curtain’s surface for long periods of time. An antimicrobial privacy curtain made with a blend of quaternary ammonium chlorides, or QAC, plus polyorganosiloxane reduces contamination with multidrug-resistant organisms, or MDROs, and the microbial burden compared with a standard curtain, according to researchers. Dry surfaces in hospitals can harbor MDROs for months and patient privacy curtains are frequently contaminated, with pathogens to prevent this Antimicrobial hospital curtains may be more effective at reducing bacterial contamination than standard curtains. Antimicrobial privacy curtains play an important role in controlling contamination within the patient room. These curtains reduce contamination caused due to multidrug-resistant organisms (MDROs). Antimicrobial hospital curtains are mostly made from polypropylene or polyester privacy curtains surrounding patient beds are constantly touched and may become a reservoir for dissemination; hence, the need for antimicrobial hospital curtains is on the rise.

Covid-19 Scenario analysis:

The coronavirus COVID-19 is affecting 213 countries and territories around the world. The lack of providing single room accommodation for patients is impossible because of the Pandemic has increased the demand for antimicrobial curtains but while manufacturing is a historically slow moving and conservative industry, COVID-19 has created new challenges that are requiring manufacturers to innovate at speeds they never have before. Supply chain disruptions, social distancing on high-touch assembly lines, limited ability to travel, and the need for oversight add significant complexity to today’s processes. The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has created a global health crisis that has had a deep impact on the manufacturing market there is a shortage in supply of raw materials from Chinese manufacturers, which has resulted in a severe demand-supply gap. The manufacturers are further expected to be stranded on raw material orders owing to the logistics industry being significantly impacted due to lockdown amid COVID-19.

Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers and Impact analysis:


Increased prevalence of hospital acquired infections:

Hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) are increasing in frequency due to multi-drug resistant organisms (MDROs) and the spread of MDROs has eroded our ability to treat infections. Healthcare professionals cannot rely solely on traditional infection control measures and antimicrobial stewardship to prevent MDRO transmission. Antimicrobial hospital curtains reduce the growth of microorganism bacteria and fungus. Curtains with antimicrobial properties are now available in the healthcare facilities. Healthcare facilities majorly require a special type of curtains that are fabricated from 100% antifungal and antimicrobial material to keep the hospital surroundings hygienic and clean. Hence, the antimicrobial hospital curtains market is estimated to witness lucrative growth over the coming years owing to increasing concern about the transmission of microorganisms via hospital curtains, which are majorly used consumables.

Availability of disposable antimicrobial curtains:

The patient environment may harbor potential pathogens making it a possible source for cross-transmission to the hands of health care workers, patients, and visitors. Privacy curtains surrounding patient beds are constantly touched and may become a reservoir for dissemination. A recent outbreak in an ear, nose, and throat ward revealed 10 fabric curtains were contaminated with the same strain of group A Streptococcus as were 3 affected patients in the cancer ward. Disposable antimicrobial and sporicidal privacy curtains have been marketed over the past few years as a passive infection prevention strategy. New technologies have delivered a variety of treated and embedded substances onto the surfaces of synthetic curtains. Silver-impregnated curtains were hung in our intensive care unit in 2012 and had excellent antimicrobial and sporicidal activity for 6 months. Recent formulations have extended protective activity for 2 years, thus providing extra savings related to laundering and labor. Hence, there is a rise in market.

The lack of providing single room accommodation for patients in developing regions increases the demand for antimicrobial curtains. This would drive the antimicrobial curtains market growth in developing countries. Also, the rising awareness regarding hospital related diseases and better healthcare practices is expected to boost demand for antimicrobial textiles as they possess the inherent ability to restrict the growth of disease-causing micro-organisms. Furthermore, rising standards of living, coupled with increasing disposable income and health consciousness, are expected to boost demand for antimicrobial medical textiles globally.


The lack of awareness regarding the importance of antimicrobial hospital curtains in the healthcare facilities of lower-middle-income countries might hamper the market growth.

Regional analysis:

North America will be the leading region during the forecast period. U.S. accounted for the highest share in the North America region due to high awareness regarding use of antimicrobial privacy curtains and availability of major manufacturers. Europe is likely to be the succeeding key market. The crucial reasons are presence of latest healthcare infrastructure and ongoing research in the field of antimicrobial textiles. Asia-Pacific will develop at the highest growth rate owing to increasing awareness regarding implementation of best healthcare practices. Latin America region will propagate at a noteworthy rate through the assessment time. Middle East & Africa will show positive advancement in the projected time-frame.
