The global hospital acquired infections control market is expected to witness robust growth during the forecast period. The number of hospital acquired infections has triggered the need for a separate sterile unit in hospitals where the equipment is sterilized and reprocessed. There are surprise checks by the regulatory authorities to ensure the utilization of sterilized equipment and consumables.

Presence of unhygienic conditions around and inside hospitals and improper sterilization techniques applied in hospitals are increasing the prevalence of hospital acquired infections

Emerging economies such as India, China, Brazil, Mexico and South Africa have a large number of under-served patients. These geographies represent a huge opportunity for medical device manufacturers. Economic development in these emerging economies along with rising disposable income of patients would help the market ensuring future sustainability. Growing healthcare infrastructure and medical expenditure by respective governments would enable installation and usage of sophisticated medical devices such as endoscopes in medical institutions like hospitals. This would increase the demand for endoscope reprocessing devices, as these are capable of disinfecting medical devices efficiently. Likewise, rise in healthcare expenditure would encourage endoscope reprocessing devices manufacturers to enter the market.

Greater focus on development of reprocessors exhibiting innovative product design to avoid cross contamination and enhance patient safety coupled with advancements in the medical device industry is expected to create a favorable platform for innovative reprocessing technologies in high-income economies such as the U.K. and U.S. Companies are expected to benefit from increasing incorporation of innovative technologies in AERs. Such systems are expected to revolutionize the cleaning process in the most effective manner in the near future.

Hospitals are gradually shifting from heat sterilization to low temperature sterilization owing to the various drawbacks related to steam heat sterilizers

The disinfection equipment segment is expected to be the most lucrative among all product types with an attractiveness index of 2.14, while the heat sterilization equipment segment is anticipated to be the second attractive segment in the hospital acquired infections control market, with an attractiveness index of 1.78. Disinfection equipment is the largest product type in the global hospital acquired infections control market, which was estimated to represent US$ 2,585.1 Mn, or 49.6% share of the total market in 2017 and is projected to reach a market valuation of US$ 3,852.5 Mn by 2025 end, expanding at a CAGR of 5.1% over the forecast period 2017–2025.

Guidelines and recommendations of the European Respiratory Society

  • Use of distal versus proximal quantitative sampling in intubated patients suspected to have ventilator associated pneumonia
  • Shortened duration of antibiotic therapy from 14 days to 7 to 10 days in patients with hospital acquired pneumonia and ventilator associated pneumonia without altering clinical cure rate or increasing infection relapse rate
  • Suspicion of nosocomial pneumonia, with early onset of infection with none of the usual risk factors for multidrug-resistant (MDR) pathogens versus late onset of infections with classic MDR risk factors
  • Use of serum PCT levels to reduce the duration of antibiotics in patients with HAP with severe sepsis or VAP
  • Choosing between a single antibiotic or a combination regimen when using broad-spectrum empiric therapy for hospital acquired pneumonia and ventilator associated pneumonia
