The global infection control market
[http://www.marketsandmarkets.com/Market-Reports/infection-control-market-1084.html ] will
grow at a steady pace of around 6% from $10.5 billion in 2012 to $14.0 billion by 2017.
The rise in tide of cleaning standards and mounting pressure for sterilized and
disinfected medical devices in hospitals and clinics has triggered the growth of medical
sterilization and disinfection market. The increase in hospital acquired infections or
nosocomial infections have forced the medical authorities to take stringent regulatory
actions to curb these infections with the use of sterilized and disinfected medical
With a rise in awareness of food quality and increase in exports of exotic fruits and
vegetables across countries, there has been a rise in food sterilization and disinfection.
Pharmaceutical sterilization plays a vital role and help in making drugs safe for patient
use. This is majorly done using filtration technologies and gamma irradiation of the
pharmaceutical components and powders like APIs. The role of sterilization in medical
packaging has been of crucial importance, especially of finished products such as saline
bottles, needles, syringes etc.
Introduction of technically enhanced instruments in the market like endoscopes, and
analyzers there has been an increase in the need for advanced sterilizers, disinfectors
that are compatible with these instruments. Owing to this, a drastic shift has been
observed from steam sterilizers to low temperature sterilizers with preamble of
sterilizers like VHP, hydrogen gas plasma and ozone. Also the demand for endoscope
reprocessing is poised to grow close to double-digit rate in the coming five years.
Along with sterilization, cleaning and sanitation are also important activities
carried out in healthcare, food and pharmaceutical industry. Hand disinfectant market is
the fastest growing segment as hands are considered to be the primary cause of cross
infection. The endoscope reprocessing market is anticipated to show healthy growth in the
upcoming years due to continued instrument development, and increasing minimally invasive
surgery procedures. The other important factor responsible for the growth of disinfection
market will be the increasing usage of single-use technology products like medical
non-wovens and face masks.
There has been a rise in trend for contract sterilization services due to stringent
regulatory requirements from regulatory agencies like ISO and AMMI. The OEMs prefer
outsourcing as it helps in cost reduction in sterilizing equipments in-house by focusing
on their core competencies of business. However, in the near future in-house sterilization
is expected to give healthy competition to contract sterilization service market mainly
due to advent of hydrogen gas plasma and vapor hydrogen peroxide that are preferred to be
used in-house. It also provides better quality assurance with just-in-time facility for
sterilized products. Gamma and E-beam services are poised to have better growth over ETO
in the near future due to their wider applications with respect to food, pharmaceutical,
medical devices, life sciences and cosmetic products sterilization.
North America accounts for the largest share of the infection control market; however,
Asia is expected to display favorable growth in the coming years, primarily due to rise in
awareness, growth of ageing population, increase in number of surgeries, and growth in per
