Solar Autoclave Market: Overview
- Autoclave is a medical equipment used to kill microorganisms by sterilizing them using saturated steam at a temperature of 1210C and absolute pressure of 2.06 bar for 20 to 30 minutes. The exposure to surgical instruments kills all microorganisms such as viruses, fungi, and bacteria. Various sources of energy such as fossil fuel, electricity, and solar energy are employed to operate an autoclave equipment.
- Autoclave that utilizes solar energy to sterilize surgical instruments and combat infection is known as solar autoclave. Solar autoclave is an ideal solution for sterilizing medical equipment in rural areas.
Key Drivers of Global Solar Autoclave Market
- Rise in demand for sterilization of surgical instruments in order to reduce the risk of infections, primarily in rural areas, is expected to drive the global solar autoclave market during the forecast period. Solar energy is environment friendly. This is anticipated to boost the market during the forecast period.
- Increase in efforts to maintain fossil fuel resources by enhancing the utilization of renewable sources along with strict regulations & norms to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is also anticipated to propel the global solar autoclave market during the forecast period. Regulatory bodies have introduced several regulations and directives to achieve renewable targets in order to lower GHG emissions. For instance, in 2019, policymakers in California, the U.S., announced their aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 26% by 2025 from the 2005 levels.
- Increase in investments in construction of health care facilities in rural areas is estimated to propel the solar autoclave market during the forecast period. Solar autoclave instrument provides remote health clinics with an inexpensive, efficient way to sterilize medical equipment.
Steam Autoclave Process Segment Expected to Hold Major Share of Global Solar Autoclave Market
- The global solar autoclave market can be segmented based on process and region
- In terms of process, the global solar autoclave market can be bifurcated into dry heat and steam autoclave. Steam autoclave is one of the extensively used solar autoclave systems, as steam helps transfer heat energy effectively at a lower time and temperature.
Asia Pacific to Account for Prominent Share of Global Solar Autoclave Market
- In terms of region, the global solar autoclave market can be segregated into Middle East & Africa, Latin America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and North America
- The solar autoclave market in North America is expected to expand at a moderate CAGR during the forecast period. Growth of the market in the region can be ascribed to technological innovation in the design of autoclave systems.
- The solar autoclave market in Europe is projected to expand at a rapid CAGR during the forecast period. Introduction of several regulations and targets to reduce GHG emissions across establishments is anticipated to boost the market in the region during the forecast period. For instance, regulators across the European Union aim to lower carbon emissions by at least 20% by the end of 2020 from the 1990 levels, thus enhancing the utilization of renewable resources. Furthermore, increase in concern to reduce dependency on imported fossil fuel is likely to propel the market in Europe in the near future.
- The solar autoclave market in Asia Pacific is projected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period. Growth of the market in the region can be ascribed to increase in investments in construction of medical facilities, primarily in developing countries such as India. Rise in per capita income, growth in health awareness, rise in lifestyle diseases, and increase in access to insurance are expected to boost the investments in the health care sector. Solar autoclave is used in health care facilities to sterilize medical and dental instruments, primarily in rural areas, due to the lack of or electricity access in these areas.
- The solar autoclave market in Latin America and Middle East & Africa is anticipated to expand at a sluggish pace during the forecast period, owing to the abundant availability of solar energy in these regions.
