Saudi Arabia Medical Disposables Market is expected to grow at a steady CAGR during the forecast period 2024-2028. The Saudi Arabia Medical Disposables Market is expected to expand as a result of an increase in surgeries, a rise in hospital acquired infections (HAIs), and increase in the incidence of chronic diseases. Some of the few drivers for increasing market for medical disposables in Saudi Arabia are the rising incidences of chronic diseases including diabetes and cardiovascular disorders. For instance, according to research released in 2020 by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), 18.3% of Saudi Arabians had diabetes. Additionally, it revealed that Saudi Arabia has the seventh-highest rate of newly diagnosed type 1 diabetes cases. According to WHO, 3 million people in Saudi Arabia have pre-diabetes and approximately 7 million people in the country have diabetes. As long-term diabetes results in diabetic foot ulcers, in certain cases it causes, diabetic retinopathy, which is brought on by damaged retinal blood vessels from high blood sugar, thus lengthens treatment and stay in hospital. Heart transplant, coronary artery bypass surgery, and cases of cardiovascular disease are some of the chronic diseases related treatments that call for the usage of medical disposables during lengthy operations to prevent infection. Healthcare providers, infection control experts, public health officials, and patients all face serious problems as a result of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs). According to a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), nursing homes record more than 3 million HAIs annually, some of which result in patient death or impairment. Increased mortality and morbidity, extended hospital stays, antibiotic resistance, and higher healthcare expenses are all linked to HAIs.

The three chronic infections that are spread most frequently among people in Saudi Arabia are brucellosis, chickenpox, and amoebic dysentery, according to reports made public by the Ministry of Health. Requirement of medical disposables in the hospitals is frequent which does not require sterilization after each use and thus easily disposed off after single use. These are some of the main factors which are driving the market of Saudi Arabia Medical Disposables during the anticipated period.

Rise in Communicable Diseases

Infection control is the main factor driving the growth of medical disposables in Saudi Arabia. An item that has only been used once cannot spread infectious pathogens to more patients. A delicate balance between performance, cost, reliability, materials, and shelf life is necessary for medical disposables. First-line defenses against numerous nosocomial diseases were mostly provided by medical disposables like surgical masks, needles, gowns, and other objects. During every procedure, doctors always use disposable medical equipment. It guards against numerous diseases' infection as well as provides higher sensitivity during surgical and diagnostic procedures. Doctors wear medical masks to protect themselves from a variety of infectious diseases when performing diagnostic and surgical procedures. Medical disposables are vital component in hospitals; thus, constant flow of medical disposables during emergency cases is important and will drive the growth of medical disposable market in Saudi Arabia with rising cases of communicable diseases.

Growing Medical Tourism

The demand for high-quality healthcare services, medical equipment, and technology will be driven by the growing number of medical tourists. According to Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030, which aims to improve pilgrim experiences and reach the annual objective of 30 million pilgrims by 2030, healthcare facilities and services must be flexible to accommodate both treatment and emergency situations. Saudi Arabia is a country where malaria is endemic, although it is still unclear how often transfusion-transmitted malaria occurs there. The gateway for pilgrims travelling to Makkah has increased over the last few years. The increasing chances of contracting infectious diseases during pilgrimage has been a major concern in the country. The contraction can result from overcrowding, excessive humidity, air pollution, inadequate facility of water and food, contamination etc. Thus, using masks and sanitizers are the minimum precaution a person can take during the pilgrimage. Moreover, number of emergency cases and other health related conditions also occurs than usual among tourists as well, thus for providing better facility without any scarcity of products or facility in the hospitals will drive the market of medical disposables in the country.

Increase in Blood Donation and Accidental Cases

In the treatment of bleeding and other hematological illnesses, blood transfusion is crucial. The Ministry of Health (MOH), which has jurisdiction over all 13 national provinces of Saudi Arabia, is in charge of overseeing the country's healthcare system. Since its foundation, the MOH has also developed healthcare policies and offered free medical care through government hospitals and blood donation facilities. The Blood bags is used for both donation of blood and blood transfusion.

The National Transformation Programme (NTP) of Saudi Arabia, which is working toward the ambitious social and economic reform plan known as Vision 2030, has made road safety one of its pillars. According to reports, the country wants to lower the rate of traffic fatalities to less than 10 per 100,000 people by 2030. The constant demand of medical disposables in the Saudi Arabia hospitals for blood transfusion, blood donation and in emergency cases like accidents will rise the demand of medical disposables in the upcoming years.

Import Dependent Market

Advanced medical products are imported into Saudi Arabia from nations like the United States, Germany, Japan, and China, which has a market that is very price sensitive and import dependent. Plastic is used to manufacture 40% of domestically produced medical disposables. Reusable surgical instruments, cleaning agents, general IVD, hospital equipment, and dental and ophthalmology items are among the additional products. Saudi Arabia has fewer local manufacturing enterprises and fewer capabilities, which contribute to the smaller share of domestic production.

According to Saudi Arabia's national brand for promoting investment is Invest Saudi, the Ministry of Investment is in charge of (MISA) of the brand, over 90% of medical devices in the Kingdom are now imported. Within the GCC, Saudi Arabia accounts for 55% of medical device spending.

Currently, a network of local subsidiaries and distributors covers the country. Nevertheless, current local makers of medical disposables employ various raw materials. The current exporters in the country are China, which provides 75% of the supply, Malaysia, which provides 14% of the supply, and Southeast Asian nations, which provide the majority of the remaining supply. To cope up with the shortage of medical disposables and reduce the dependency on other countries, the domestic production is important thus medical production will grow the demand of these products in the forecast period which will bolster the market of Saudi Arabia medical disposables.
