The Global Portable Steam Autoclave Market, by Design (Vertical and Table Top), by Application (Medical, Dental, and Research and Development), by End User (Hospitals, Pharmaceutical and Biotech Companies, and Research and Academic Institutes), and by Region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa) was valued at US$ $ 975 million in 2017 and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 7.2% over the forecast period (2018 – 2026).
Potable steam autoclave are essential sterilization equipment used in most settings to avoid cross-contamination while performing medical, dental, and scientific operations. Steam sterilization is a non-toxic and inexpensive way to eliminate microbes and spores. Steam sterilization is based on four parameters namely, steam, pressure, temperature, and time of exposure. Nosocomial infection, including central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI), catheter-associated urinary tract infections, surgical site infections, and ventilator-associated pneumonia are some of the common hospital-acquired infections.
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 that in developed economies Guidelines associated with prevention of infections from hospital facilities would create standardized practice for sterilization, which would help in market expansion of the portable steam autoclave market. American Dental Association’s guideline mentioned in detail about guidelines for disinfection of sterilization and disinfection of dental instruments. Portable autoclave are most commonly used in dental settings. 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.
