24 November 8:34 a.m., Silicon Valley, California - According to the new market research report, the global market for Cadaver Bags is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.8% to reach US$979.6 Million by 2027, driven by increasing number of deaths due to COVID-19. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected a large number of people globally, resulting in significant number of mortalities, creating a pressing requirement of body bags for body management. Body bags or cadaver bags, intended for wrapping the shrouded corpses for storage and transportation and also for storage of corpses in mortuaries, are being made a part of pandemic response strategies along with other medical supplies, such as protective clothes, gloves and sanitizers. Several new contracts have been announced in the body bags space in recent months, across the world. For instance, the US DoD announced intentions to procure 100,000 body bags as part of its pandemic response plan in early April. On assumptions that pandemic response strategies are likely to persist through the year end, several new contracts for various medical supplies including cadaver bags are anticipated to materialize in the coming months.

The COVID-19 era is seeking new adjustments to the body bag design and how the bag is handled by healthcare workers and family members of deceased patient. The standard design of body bag does not allow the family members view the face of the deceased, and potentially exposes them to infections from the cadaver, if anyone tries to unzip the bag to have a last glimpse of the dead person. As cadaver bags fail to respect the sentiments of family member towards the deceased, they leave a traumatic experience to the family. Furthermore, in many cases, because of lack of safe design, body bags are not handled with respect by healthcare workers, while potentially exposing them to infections that are otherwise avoidable through safe handling. Against this backdrop, body bags in new conceptual designs are being brought forward for COVID-19 dead bodies. Among new designs is the one with an integrated five-layer design with leak-proof, water-proof, robust, face visible and ergonomic features. The new design facilitates easy and respectable handling of the deceased body during transportation from the site of death to a mortuary, or home or the crematorium, without entailing any risk of infections.

Developed regions, including the US, Canada, Japan and Europe, represent the primary revenue contributors for the world cadaver bags market. Collectively accounting for around 85% share of total revenues, developed regions are poised to remain as core revenue generators over the analysis period. Both Europe and the US, which together account for 72% share of the market, would continue to be the major drivers for present and future growth of the market. The increasing number of COVID-19 cases in the US and European countries such as Italy, Spain, etc. are propelling the need for cadaver bags. In addition, the US and other developed regions are typically characterized by well-established healthcare infrastructure and wider access to care services offered through hospitals, clinics, and commercial diagnostics centres. Further, these countries are also characterized by higher healthcare awareness among population, and consumer affluence, which strongly influence the demand for care and diagnostics services. Growing prevalence of lifestyle and chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, cancer and heart disease, and ageing population also perk up the demand for care services. Due to massive healthcare infrastructure and huge demand for care services, deployment and usage of various types of healthcare equipment and supplies remains high in the developed countries.
The cadaver bags market is expected to be driven by the increasing number of deaths in Asia-Pacific countries like India, China, among Others. The cadaver bags market is also benefiting from the prevailing healthcare trends in the developing regions, especially the Asia-Pacific region. Healthcare landscape in Asia-Pacific continues to evolve, with contributions from a range of factors. Governmental programs aimed at providing quality care services to citizens and investments by private sector healthcare entities to expand their operations on a massive scale are instigating wider roll out of healthcare infrastructure and the demand for care services. Similarly, positive demographic and socio-economic factors such as large national populations, improving literacy rates, higher awareness about health disorders, and growing income levels are all inflating healthcare service volumes. Due to the constantly evolving healthcare landscape, emerging nations such as China, India, Malaysia, Thailand, Turkey, Brazil, Mexico and South Africa, are generating robust opportunities for medical technologies and supplies. Against this backdrop, demand for medical specialty bags such as cadaver bags continues to expand at higher rate in almost all the developing regions.
