The demand for medical coveralls has surged significantly since the outbreak of Covid-19. It is extensively used during the pandemic to shield healthcare employees, such as nurses, doctors, and other medical personnel.

Woven & non-woven fabric and seam are the major raw materials used for medical coveralls production. The cost of raw material accounted for more than 40% of the overall cost of production. The raw materials should be certified with ISO 16604, EN 14126, ISO 22611, and ISO 22612 certifications. Both mask and body coverall share similar raw material. However, the manufacturing process is different. Mask manufacturing can be fully automated and can have a high output rate. A fully automated mask-making machine can give ~250,000 pieces of mask in 24 hours, while body coverall making, in comparison, is labor-oriented and has a lower rate of production. Hence, the cost of labor plays a crucial role in medical coveralls production.

However, the coveralls offered by these companies are inferior in quality compared to coveralls offered by industry-leading suppliers.
