At present, the medical specialty bags market is growing at a steady pace due to rising number of hospitals in the emerging economies, growing geriatric population, favorable reimbursement policies in the North American and European markets and less stringent FDA approval norms. According to the Central Bureau of Health Intelligence (India), the number of government hospitals in India has increased from 4,571 in 2000 to 11,993 in 2011. Similarly, an article in Emirates 24/7 news states that the number of hospitals in Dubai increased from 22 in 2008 to 28 in 2012 and the government is planning to build three new hospitals and 40 health care centers by 2020. Such growth in the number of hospitals would lead to increased health care procedures including the use of medical specialty bags such as enema bags, enteral nutrition bags, IV fluid bags and anesthesia breathing bags.

Among all the product types, ostomy collection bags accounted for the largest market share of approximately 30% in 2013. Global aging population, rising prevalence of chronic diseases, growing customer awareness, increasing health care-related consumer expenditure and rising disposable income of the consumers are the major factors that are driving the ostomy collection bags market. On the other hand, the blood bags market with a CAGR of over 9% is the fastest growing segment in the medical specialty bags market. Rising blood infusion emergencies and increasing use of PVC-free blood bags are the major factors that would drive the blood bags market. Introduction of non-PVC blood bags to reduce toxicity and store blood for a longer time is one of the major technological advancements in this area that would drive the blood bags segment during the forecast period.

In terms of volume, the IV fluid bags held the largest share (over 60%) in the medical specialty bags market. This is due to low cost of IV fluid bags, extensive use in health care procedures, convenience and efficacy in rapid nutrition delivery and wide use in both treatment and diagnostic procedures. However, the blood bags segment is estimated to be the fastest growing segment during the forecast period.
