Sterilization Monitoring Market

Sterilization Monitoring Market: Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2020 - 2030

Sterilization Monitoring: Introduction

  • Sterilization is a process designed to kill all microbes. Sterilization mainly involves the heat processing of packaged and cleaned instruments through a dry-heat sterilizer, steam autoclave, or unsaturated, chemical-vapor sterilizer.
  • Sterilization monitoring involves evaluating the effectiveness of the sterilization procedure so that problems with the functioning or use of the sterilizer can be identified and corrected
  • Three types of sterilization monitoring are available: Chemical Monitoring, Biological Monitoring, and Physical Monitoring
  • Physical monitoring includes timely observation of sterilizers as they are being operated to see if the gauges are representing the correct temperatures and/or pressure
  • Biological monitoring includes demonstrating the effect of the sterilization procedure on live microorganisms that are more challenging to kill than all the common disease-causing microbes
  • Chemical monitoring includes the use of sensitive chemicals that change color when exposed to combinations of temperature and time or high temperature.

Key Drivers of Global Sterilization Monitoring Market

  • Increase in number of hospital-acquired infections drives the global sterilization monitoring market. Some common types of hospital-acquired infections are urinary tract infections (UTIs), meningitis, surgical site infections, pneumonia, and gastroenteritis. 
  • An increase in number of hospital-acquired infections resulting in rise in use of chemical as well as biological indicators in sterilization monitoring is expected to drive the global sterilization monitoring market during the forecast period
  • Prevalence of infections compels healthcare centers and hospitals to practice sterilization monitoring to help prevent and control the spread of infectious diseases. This is expected to drive the sterilization monitoring market.

Biological Indicators Segment to Grow at Faster Rate during Forecast Period

  • Based on the product, the global sterilization monitoring market can be divided into biological indicators and chemical indicators
  • The biological indicators segment is anticipated to grow at a faster rate during the forecast period
  • Increase in the usage of biological indicators in sterilization monitoring is expected to drive the biological indicators segment during the forecast period

Hospitals Segment to Offer Attractive Opportunities

  • In terms of end-user, the global sterilization monitoring market can be classified into hospitals; pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device companies; research and academic institutes; and others
  • The hospitals segment is expected to account for major share of the global sterilization monitoring market by 2030
  • The segment dominance can be attributed to increase in usage of sterilization monitoring products and techniques in the hospitals

North America to Dominate the Global Sterilization Monitoring Market

  • In terms of region, the global sterilization monitoring market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa
  • North America is projected to dominate the global sterilization monitoring market during the forecast period. Factors such as a rise in hospital-acquired infections are expected to propel the market in the region. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), in the U.S., hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) account for an estimated 1.7 million infections and 99,000 associated deaths each year.
