The global sterilization equipment market is projected to reach USD 13.6 billion by 2025 from USD 12.1 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 2.5% from 2020 to 2025. The growth of the market is largely driven by factors such as rising incidence of hospital-acquired infections, increasing number of surgical procedures, and growing focus on food sterilization and disinfection. Emerging economies are expected to provide a wide range of growth opportunities for players in the market.

Attractive Opportunities in the Sterilization Equipment Market

Equipment sterilization plays a critical role in preventing the spread of COVID-19 in healthcare settings.During the outbreak, patient-to-patient pathogen transmission via medical devices can be entirely prevented by properly sterilizing medical devices.

The usage of reprocessed equipment to disinfect or sterilize medical devices is higher than normal during the pandemic since improper decontamination of surgical instruments, endoscopic devices, respiratory care devices, and reusable hemodialysis machines can lead to arise in the threat due to COVID. This has increased the demand for sterilization consumables to ensure proper sterilization of medical devices.


DRIVER: Rising incidence of hospital acquired diseases
Hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) are a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide.These include central line-associated bloodstream infections, catheter-associated urinary tract infections, and ventilator-associated pneumonia.

The most common bacteria associated with HAIs include C. difficile, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Klebsiella, E. coli, Enterococcus, and Pseudomonas species. The growing prevalence of HAIs globally is the primary growth driver for the sterilization equipment market. HAIs affect around 5%–10% of all hospitalized patients in the US annually, as per the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As reported by the OECD in 2018, nearly 3.8 million patients develop HAIs every year in Europe.

BURNING ISSUES: Non-compliance to sterilization standards
According to the Joint Commission, in 2016, there has been an increase in the non-compliance rate among hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, and office-based surgery facilities. In addition, the aforementioned standard to reduce the risk of infections associated with medical equipment, devices, and supplies was one of the top five non-compliant requirements.

OPPORTUNITY: Re-introduction of ethylene oxide sterilization
With the growing number of cases of COVID-19 worldwide, EtO is preferred to sterilize protective gear and single-use instruments prior to their initial use.This sterilization technology plays a vital role in enabling the sterilization of critical medical products and devices before they reach patients.

According to the FDA, more than 20 billion devices sold in the US every year are sterilized with EtO, accounting for approximately 50% of the devices that require sterilization.

Sterilization instruments segment accounted for a significant share of the sterilization equipment market, by product & services, in 2019
By product & services, the sterilization equipment market is segmented sterilization instruments, sterilization consumables & accessories and sterilization services.Of all these product & service sterilization instruments accounted for the largest share of the sterilization equipment market in 2019.

The segment is also anticipated to grow at the fastest rate due to rising prevalence of chronic diseases and increasing number of surgeries performed.

Hospitals segment accounted for the largest share of the sterilization equipment market, by end user in 2019
On the basis of end user, the sterilization equipment market is segmented into hospitals & clinics, pharmaceutical companies, medical device companies, food & beverage companies, and other end users.Of all these end-user segments, hospitals & clinics accounted for the largest share of the sterilization equipment market in 2019.

The large share of this segment can be attributed to factors such as the rapidly growing aging population, the higher surgeries performed in the hospital settings and increasing cases of HAIs.

North America will continue to dominate the sterilization equipment market during the forecast period
In 2019, North America was estimated to be the largest regional market for sterilization equipment, followed by Europe. The growth in this market is primarily driven by the growing demand for sterilization technologies from the healthcare industry to minimize the occurrence of HAIs, the growing geriatric population, and the consequent rise in the demand for healthcare services.
