Sterilization Technologies Market by Type (Chemical and Gas Sterilization, Filtration Sterilization, Ionizing Radiation Sterilization, and Thermal Sterilization) and End User (Pharmaceuticals, Medical Devices, Food and Beverages, Agriculture, Cosmetic, Manufacturing, and Others): Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2021–2030

The global Sterilization Technologies market was valued at $7,200.53 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $12,782.65 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 5.9% from 2021 to 2030.
Sterilization technologies is a process used to eliminate all viable life forms including bacteria, prions, viruses, fungi, and spore forms from surfaces of equipment, pharmaceuticals, medications, food ingredients, and biological culture medium. There is increase in demand for disinfection and sterilization of medical instruments and devices to avoid and reduce the probability of transmission of microorganisms through surgical devices. Many medical devices and equipment manufacturers, post designing and manufacturing, sterilize the equipment using sterilization technologies, such as gamma, steam, X-rays, ethylene oxide (EO), and others.
Increase in usage of single-use disposable devices has increased the adoption of sterilization practices during the manufacturing of medical devices. Many healthcare regulatory bodies are concerned over reducing healthcare costs by speeding up device and drug approval processes. Faster approvals are expected to boost the demand for new sterility testing methods, which are anticipated to compel innovative market players to spend more on advanced sterilization solutions.
Recent developments in the sterilization technologies market focus on low temperature sterilization systems. Further, commercially available low-temperature sterilization systems have been enhanced as they include shorter cycles, improved materials compatibility, expanded instrument capability, environmental friendliness, and reduced costs, and as a result, more new technologies are moving towards commercialization.
The sterilization technology market is driven mainly by the increased rate of infections, rapid growth of biotechnological and pharmaceutical companies, increased medical procedure, and advancement of technology in the sterilization market. Infectious diseases, such as AIDS and innovation of medicines and initiatives taken by governments are also considered as primary drivers of the sterilization technologies market.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) report, millions of people globally are affected by Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs) every year. This factor leads to a high mortality rate and substantial financial losses for the healthcare systems. According to WHO, healthcare infection differs by around 5.7% in low income and 19% in medium-income countries. The rise in HAIs is one of the drivers of the sterilization technology market. Gradual improvements to enhance technology to produce better medical devices and investments in R&D activities by leading market players are predicted to offer an excellent opportunity for the market growth.
However, high cost of maintenance and replacement part of sterilization equipment restrict customers from buying the equipment. Thermal sterilizers continuously require steam, electricity, and water for operation, which increases the overall utility costs.
The sterilization technologies market in this report is studied on the basis of type, end user, and region. On the basis of type, the market is divided into chemical and gas sterilization, filtration sterilization, ionizing radiation sterilization, and thermal sterilization. Chemical and gas sterilization is further divided into ethylene oxide, formaldehyde, and others. Filtration sterilization is further divided into liquid and air & gas. Ionizing radiation sterilization is classified as gamma radiation, electron beam radiation, and others. Thermal sterilization is further classified as autoclaving, distillation, pasteurization, retorting and others. On the basis of end user, the market is divided into pharmaceuticals, medical devices, food and beverage, agriculture cosmetics, manufacturing, and others. Region wise, this market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
On the basis of type, the Chemical & Gas Sterilization segment currently dominates the global sterilization technologies market and is expected to continue during the forecast period owing to the their effectiveness in sterilizing the reusable medical instruments, surgical instruments, and other materials required for various microbial-safe environments.
On the basis of end user, the medical devices segment dominated the global sterilization technologies market in 2020 and is anticipated to be dominant in the market owing to growing incidence of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs), and the rising number of surgical procedures propelling the growth of the medical devices industry.
Region wise, North America dominated the market in 2020, owing to the growing demand for sterilization technologies from the healthcare industry to minimize the occurrence of HAIs, the increasing number of surgical procedures performed, and the presence of key players in the region are the major factors supporting the growth of the sterilization technologies market. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to witness considerable market growth during the forecast period, due to accelerated economic growth, growing government focus on the healthcare sector, rising prevalence of chronic diseases, the outbreak of COVID-19, investment from government bodies to expand healthcare facilities, and favorable regulatory reforms.
The major players operating in the global sterilization technologies market are Advanced Sterilization Products Services Inc., Atec Pharmatechnik GmbH, Belimed AG, Getinge Group, Nordion Inc., Noxilizer, Inc., Sterile Technologies Inc., Steris Plc., The 3M Company, and Stryker Corporation. These players adopted product launch, collaboration, and merger & acquisition as their key developmental strategies.
