In a report released by Persistent Market Research today, consumer demand for disposable medical supplies is expected to rise significantly by 2020. But just what are disposable medical supplies? Every time you go to the doctor or the dentist, certain products are used to conduct whatever tests you might need that day. A q-tip for a saliva sample, a dressing for a wound, and blood glucose test strips are all examples of disposable medical supplies. Other items include adult incontinence diapers and even the cotton balls used to wipe down your arm before you’re given a shot.
One of the reasons for the particularly high growth in this field is the aging Baby Boomer population. As more Americans enter their golden age, visits to the doctor increase, which places a higher demand on the products that are used the most. Did you know that Barnhardt’s Purified Cotton ™ is also placed in many health care products? Due to it’s hypoallergenic and non-toxic properties, it’s an ideal pick for some of the hardest working supplies in the doctor’s office. From the shock-absorbing tuft of cotton at the top of a pill bottle to inclusion in Class 1 medical devices (which includes wound dressings and incontinence pads), Barnhardt cotton can handle the heavy lifting.
You expect your doctor’s office to be a sterile, safe environment. Why not ask the same thing of your everyday cotton? To learn more about our American grown Purified Cotton™, visit www. purifiedcotton.com.
