Mobile Sterilization Solutions Market Segmented By types such as Closed Loop, Open Loop having applications such as Large Area Sterilization, Small Area Sterilization
Mobile Sterilization Solutions are equipment used for sterilization or bio decontamination of various medical devices and hospital premises such as operation theatres. These equipment are essential for maintenance of required low micro-organism loads in critically important facilities where there is huge risk of contamination.
Around 5-10% of patients admitted to hospitals in the developed countries acquire infections. The risk in developing countries is approximately 2-20 times more than in developed countries. In a few developing nations, the incidence of health care-acquired infection can exceed 25%.
Moreover, hospitals in developing countries do simple disinfection of medical material increasing the risk of infections remain high. Most of the mobile sterilization equipment use gaseous sterilization method for sterilization of the facilities. Vaporised high pressure Hydrogen peroxide is the most commonly used gaseous medium to carry out the process. Some of the beneficial features provided by mobile sterilization systems include compactness, user friendly, and reproducibility, auto-cleaning and wide range of applications.
The key factor driving the market growth of mobile sterilization solutions is increased demand for rapid and on the spot sterilization of facilities due to increasing number of surgeries. Another factor adding to the growth includes rising number of hospital acquired infections (Nosocomial Infections) and surgical site infections, which have created demand for effective sterilization not only for the operational facilities but the other parts of the premises as well. Other advancements with mobile systems are their proximity to surgical sites and quick turnaround whenever there is a requirement.
The factors that may limit the market growth include high prices of the mobile sterilization solutions and their complex processes of working. Sensitivity of medical devices and their material towards chemicals and gases used for sterilization may add to limit of market growth.
