Portable Steam Autoclave Market  

Portable steam autoclaves are used routinely in the laboratory, hospitals, research facilities, and academic institutions in order to sterilize the various lab equipment, surgical equipment, medical devices, experimental glassware, and hospital consumables. Portable steam autoclaves are constructed with heavy gauge aluminum or stainless steel material. The chamber in steam autoclaves generates steam pressure 15 psi to 18psi under working temperature of 121°C to 140°C. Steam autoclaves sterilizes material by heating it at temperature above boiling point at which bacterial, viral strains and spores cannot survive.

It is an important instrument to prevent infection from surgical equipment, which may cause hospital-acquired infections, as well as to obtain accurate results from disinfected lab ware and other instruments. Portable steam autoclave are convenient to handle, easy to transport to different places and occupies less space. However, it cannot be used where the end user site has heavy operational workload for sterilization, as portable steam autoclave are smaller in size with limited capacity. Portable dental autoclave may reach ultra-high temperature to disinfect dental equipment.

The global portable steam autoclave market size was valued at US$ 975 million in 2017 and is expected to witness a CAGR of 7.2 % over the forecast period (2018–2026).

Increased number of healthcare-associated infections to drive growth of portable steam autoclave market

Major factors driving the portable steam autoclave market during forecast period include increasing incidence of hospital-acquired infections worldwide. According to World Health Organization’s (WHO) Report on the burden of endemic health care-associated infection worldwide published 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.

Hospital-acquired infection due to non-sterile environment affects 300-400 million patients each year according to same report from WHO. Portable steam autoclave could play major role in reducing the incidence of these infections, thereby providing impetus to the potable steam autoclave market growth during forecast period.

However, rising use of disposable medical devices and other equipment could deter the market growth for portable steam autoclave market during forecast period. Limited capacity of portable steam autoclave could hinder adoption of this autoclave in facilities with high workload.

Stringent guidelines by regulatory agencies for disinfection and increased research and development to drive growth of the portable steam autoclave market

Various regulatory agencies are implementing stringent guidelines and parameters to control hospital-acquired infections and provide procedures for optimum sterilization norms to prevent transmission of infections from medical equipment and glassware. For instance, Centre for Disease Control (CDC), in February 2018, updated its guidelines for disinfection and sterilization in healthcare facilities. This guideline has set various procedures for sterilization of various medical equipment and laboratory ware using autoclave in order to prevent any nosocomial infection.

American Academy of Ophthalmology in 2018, published guidelines for intraocular surgical instruments, which specifies about use of sterilization process and equipment in preventing infection and other risk. Similar guidelines have been published for dental equipment by international dentistry bodies across the world.

World Health Organization in 2014 published a guideline regarding safe management of waste from healthcare facilities. It provides regulatory framework, planning issues, waste minimization and recycling, handling, storage and transportation, treatment and disposal options, and training regarding to biohazard waste. Portable autoclave could play an important role in prevention of the biohazard waste in hospital facilities, of which nearly 15% is capable of causing serious infections, according to World Health Organization factsheet 2018.

Additionally, increasing application of portable autoclaves in microbiology and dental fields and growth in research and development for novel medicines are expected to be major drivers for portable steam autoclave market growth.

Key players operating in the global portable steam autoclave market include 3M Company, Steris Corporation, Cantel Medical Corporation, Asceptico, Labtron Equipment Ltd., GPC Medical Ltd., CIS GROUP, LTE Scientific, Anderson products, BIOBASE, Advanced Sterilization Products, Sterigenics international, and MMM Group

Potable steam autoclave equipment are commonly used in the medical setting, dental setting and microbiology setting or other research facility in order to sterilize the medical equipment, dental equipment, glassware and other lab ware. Portable steam autoclave commonly uses electric source to heat the coils that passes the latent heat to the liquid inside and disinfect the equipment however, they may utilize gas as source to generate steam in some case. Portable autoclave are smaller in size, occupies less space and are easy to carry. Portable autoclave market is highly fragment due to presence of large number of local players especially in the developing region. However novel products from established players leverages the their position in the market

Market Dynamics

Major factor driving growth of the global portable autoclave market is large number of the infection incidence from the healthcare facilities. Infection may be from the repetitive use of medical equipment such as endoscopes, scissors and other commonly used equipment. According to study published by John Hopkins Medicine in May 2018, Each year in the U.S., there are more than 15 million colonoscopies and 7 million upper-GI endoscopies, known as esophagogastroduodenoscopies, or EGDs. 45 patients per 1,000 patients who had been hospitalized 30 days before screening colonoscopy visited a hospital due to infection within a month after colonoscopy procedure done. For GI endoscopies the rate of infection-related hospitalization was more than 59 patients per 1,000. This high number of infection could boost use of portable autoclave.
