Sterilization Equipment Market - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2017–2025

Sterilization is a process that kills, eliminates, deactivates or removes all form of life and other biological agent form specific surface, fluid, medication or in biological culture. Sterilization can be achieved through various means such as chemicals, heat, irradiation, filtration and high pressure. So on basis of different means of sterilization there are different sterilization equipment. Sterilization equipment are mainly required in laboratory particularly microbiology and medical. Autoclave is a most important sterilization equipment as it can be used to sterilize laboratory equipment such as glassware and micro centrifuge tubes. Chemicals, fluids, water or food used for experiments are also sterilized in autoclave. Besides autoclave there are dry heat sterilizing equipment like hot air oven. Steam sterilization equipment like autoclave are used to sterilize glassware, surgical instruments, and medical waste. Dry heat sterilization equipment such as hot air oven are used to sterilize metal instruments, needles and petroleum products. Glass beads sterilizers are employed for the instruments which are re-used. But Glass beads are not FDA approved.

Sterilization market has gained traction in the recent past due to increasing awareness about infection and diseases caused due to non-sterile environment. The increase in investment in research and healthcare infrastructure focus on public health sterilization equipment is increasing significantly. Serious issues occurring due to utilization of unsterilized equipment leads to spreading of HIV and lethal hepatitis threating public health. Government is also engaged in uplifting and improving the use of sterilization equipment, Food and drug administration (FDA) approves the product to market only when it is produce in sterile and hygienic conditions. Department of health and human services have formed the guidelines for disinfection and sterilization in healthcare facilities in 2008 which is updated again in 2014 and February 2017 according to various new infection such as Ebola virus disease. The medical waste should also be decontaminated use sterilization equipment and then disposed so that there is no threat of disease spreading.
