LONDON, April 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to The Business Research Company’s research report on the healthcare fabrics market, the rising investment in development of sustainable fabrics is gaining popularity among healthcare fabrics market trends. Healthcare fabric companies are increasingly focusing on developing sustainable fabrics for use in the healthcare industry. Companies are manufacturing fabrics that pose low environmental risk and emit less carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. For instance, in 2021, US-based coated fabrics company, Precision Textiles, launched a new eco-friendly fabric for use in personal protective equipment (PPE) called EcoGuard. The material contains an additive that helps it biodegrade up to 99% more quickly than typical polypropylene gown material. Isolation gowns made of polypropylene materials take over 600 years to biodegrade in a landfill, whereas the EcoGuard material accelerates the biodegradation process by approximately six years.
