Sterilization is a component of the infection control procedure. Sterilization refers to the process which eliminates, deactivates and kills all types of biological agents and pathogens to achieve asepsis and sterile environment. These biological agents and pathogens are of any type and present on any surface, medication, a volume of fluid, or a compound such as biological cultural media. There are three definite stages of sterilization such as pre-sterilization, actual sterilization, and aseptic storage. In medical sterilization system, various technologies, devices, reagents, and consumables are used for the sterilization by the end users. In medical and life-sciences, sterilization is normally used to prevent the disease transmission due to the biological agents and pathogens.
The increasing prevalence of hospital-acquired infection has led to the demand for medical sterilization devices and has become the opportunity for the growth of the global medical sterilization system market over the forecast period.
The global medical sterilization system market is segmented on the basis of component type and end user.
On the basis of component type, the global medical sterilization system market is segmented into:
