Low Temperature Sterilization Equipment Market – Advancing Sterilization Solutions

Low temperature sterilization is an effective means to exercise heat and moisture sensitive surgical instrumentation, general equipment, and implant. Low temperature sterilization is used to sterilize unique devices with complex designs or those made of heat and moisture sensitive materials. This type of equipment usually include polymers on cameras, fiber optics, flexible scopes, certain plastics or recyclable invasive medical instruments made of materials that cannot withstand the moisture, and steam associated with steam sterilization. Low temperature sterilization methods vary in mode of action. The method used is based on the process for which the device has been validated by the original equipment manufacturer. Medical sterilization is widely practiced in hospitals and other treatment areas such as specialty clinics and ambulatory surgical centers in order to keep the patients safe, prevent infections, and other harmful microbes. Low temperature sterilization procedures are majorly adopted by health care organizations, owing to increasing use of complex, delicate and expensive instruments that are unable to withstand high temperature and pressure.

The global Low Temperature Sterilization Equipment Market was valued at US$ 1,120.1 million in 2016 and is expected to witness a robust CAGR of 10.6% over the forecast period (2017 - 2025).

Increasing number of healthcare associated infections is one of the major factor fostering the use and implementation of low temperature sterilization systems in hospitals and other healthcare settings. According to World Health Organization (WHO), in 2011, 7 out of 100 hospitalized patients procure hospital acquired infection (HAIs) and one third of the intensive care unit (ICU) patients procure hospital acquired infection due to the presence of non-sterile environment. Moreover, according to the European Centre for Disease Control and Prevention 2013, prevalence of healthcare associated infections due to use of contaminated equipment accounted for up to 4,131,000 patients affected per year in the European economies. According to a report published by Patient Safety- World Alliance for Safer Healthcare and World Health Organization 2012, due to unfavorable environment as well low quality of the healthcare institutes in low and middle income economies, patient infection due to use of non-sterile and contaminated instruments is higher as compared to the number in developed economies. Several other factors supporting the growth of Low Temperature Sterilization Equipment Market includes increasing number of surgical procedures, increasing healthcare expenditure, demand for following sterilization protocols by healthcare regulatory boards in various parts of the globe. For instance, the Ministry of Health, Singapore in 2016 released a National Infection Control Guideline as a consultation draft for hospital and other healthcare facilities to use low temperature sterilization procedures for preventing infections. However, inability of these techniques to sterile strong absorbers, liquids, and powders is expected to hinder the market growth. In terms of region, North America is expected to contribute maximum share in global Low Temperature Sterilization Equipment Market, owing to the presence of robust healthcare facilities and supportive regulatory body for delivering appropriate knowledge to the healthcare bodies regarding the importance of sterilization procedures. For instance, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2016 revised the guidelines for disinfection and sterilization associated with low temperature sterilization procedures to educate the providers about new and advanced technologies that can be used for sterilization procedures.

Advancements in the low temperature sterilization techniques to boost growth of the global market

Modern low temperature sterilization techniques include sterilization using ethylene oxide, hydrogen peroxide plasma, and steam formaldehyde at low temperature and others. The new equipment developed by manufacturers as a result of research and development includes various facilities added in the devices to provide multiple options post and prior to the sterilization procedures. For instance, Steris Corporation introduced an innovative device in 2014, known as V-Pro 60, a low temperature sterilization system that offers the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry the flexibility and productivity to reprocess the medical devices.

The key players operating the global low temperature sterilization equipment market include 3M Company, Steris Corporation, Belimed AG, Cantel Medical Corporation, Anderson products, Advanced Sterilization Products, Matachana Group, Sterigenics international, and MMM Group.

Low temperature sterilization is one of the most commonly used technique for disinfection and sterilization of equipment that are incapable to withstand high pressures and temperature in conventional sterilization techniques such as autoclave and hot air sterilization. Thus, this technique is considered to ideal for devices such as fiber optics, flexible scopes, laryngoscopes, polymers on camera, and others. The commonly used low temperature Technology type is carried out with the use of ethylene oxide gas as it is absorbed by many kinds of plastic and other materials that are usually sterilized at low temperatures.

Market Dynamics

The major factors contributing the growth of global low temperature sterilization equipment market are increasing number of surgeries, endoscopic procedures, and increase in healthcare associated infections. According to World Health Organization (WHO), in 2011, 7 out of 100 hospitalized patients procure hospital acquired infection (HAIs) and one third of the intensive care unit (ICU) patients procure hospital acquired infection due to the presence of non-sterile environment. Moreover, the journal of Royal Society Interface reported, in around 44 million cases of infectious diseases from 1980 - 2013 worldwide. Another factor responsible for promoting growth of the global low temperature sterilization equipment market include increasing number of surgical procedures, especially minimally surgical procedures in which the laparoscopic and various other devices require sterilization at low temperatures. However, the growth of Low Temperature Sterilization Equipment Market is hindered by the inability of these devices to perform disinfection on strong absorbers, liquids and powders.
