The global sterilization equipment market exhibited strong growth during 2015-2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to grow at a CAGR of around 10% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.
Sterilization equipment is used in healthcare facilities to eliminate pathogenic microorganisms like bacteria, viruses, fungi, and spores from a fluid or the surface of an article. It is widely utilized in autoclave machines, clean-in-place (CIP) systems, ultraviolet (UV) chambers, and steam, dry heat and liquid chemical processes to prevent the risk of cross-contamination and ensure the safety of staff and patients. Nowadays, various medical devices and instruments are made using heat-sensitive materials like plastic. As a result, manufacturers are offering low-temperature sterilization systems, such as ozone, hydrogen peroxide gas plasma, ethylene oxide (EO) gas and peracetic acid immersion, to disinfect these devices.
A significant rise in the hospitalization rates due to the mass spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has increased the need for ventilators to support critically ill patients worldwide. This represents one of the prominent factors influencing the demand for sterilization equipment to prevent the introduction of harmful substances that can lead to infection from artificial airways and internal circuits. Apart from this, the increasing number of surgical procedures is also influencing the market growth. Additionally, health authorities of numerous countries are introducing stringent policies concerning the sterilization of devices in healthcare facilities, which is further contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, sterilization equipment is gaining popularity in the food and beverage (F&B) industry to disinfect containers and packages. This, in confluence with the growing demand for packaged food products on account of busy lifestyles and the rising trend of nuclear families, is anticipated to drive the market.
