Growth in demand for sterilization equipment and techniques is expected to be driven by greater emphasis on reprocessing of medical devices as a means of curbing expenses. Another factor reinforcing demand is the technological advancements made in medical instruments such as endoscopes and analyzers, which have, in turn, contributed to an increasing requirement for advanced sterilizers and techniques that are compatible with these instruments. As a consequence of these technological advancements, a marked shift is being witnessed from steam sterilizers to low temperature sterilizers and accessibility to an extensive range of sterilization technologies, including the ones based on ethylene oxide, vaporized hydrogen peroxide, hydrogen peroxide gas plasma and ozone gas. Sterilization techniques are extensively utilized for decreasing the growth of bacteria on surfaces, which results in decreasing the transmission of organisms amongst the population. Such techniques are regularly employed in the medical care, pharmaceutical, life science and food processing, agriculture and cosmetics, among others.

Growing and aging global population has led to more and more surgeries being performed today than ever before. Therefore, maintaining patient safety assumes extreme criticality in the field of surgery and rules and regulations have to be in place for every aspect of the process for ensuring that errors are averted at all costs. As a consequence, disinfection and sterilization of surgical instruments becomes one area of crucial significance for upholding patient safety. This factor has a direct correlation with an increase in demand for sterilization equipment. Given the fact that every hospital and healthcare facility gives paramount importance to patient safety, sterilization techniques are most widely utilized for medical device applications.
