According to Persistence Market Research, the global sterilization services market is expected to represent a value of over US$ 3,800 Mn by the end of 2026.

Demand for Uncontaminated Medical Devices to Impact Market Growth

As the requirement of hygienisation and disinfected medical equipment is expected to remain high, manufacturing companies are increasingly offering single-use medical devices. Though, prevalence of various chronic diseases has led growing need for conducting surgeries and operations in various healthcare institutions. Inadequate cleaning of the medical devices can become a platform for the contaminated diseases to spread among other patients. Propagating various contaminated diseases through disease infected instruments has led the ruling authorities in various countries to impose regulations regarding application of sterile medical equipment.

Stringent Assessment Standards to Boost Demand

Moreover, stringent assessment of the medical devices by FDA is further propelling the manufacturers and healthcare institutions to opt for medical instruments tagged and verified as sterile equipment. Ultrasound probes, surgical instruments and endoscopes are some of the medical devices that are also reused in every other surgical operations conducted. Growing need for conducting surgeries with uncontaminated instruments is expected to impact growth of the global sterilization services market positively.

Conformance to Manufacturing Specifications to Rev Up Sales

Growing need to meet the requirements and specifications of uncontaminated medical devices has led the manufacturing companies to include routine terminal sterilization as an imperative process during production. As the manufacturers significantly need to maintain the sterility assurance level (SAL) as specified by the FDA, demand for terminal sterilization continues to remain high in the healthcare industry positively. Conformance to the specifications by FDA is expected to rev up demand for the sterilization services in the global market.

Packaging Industry to Rope in Significant Growth Benefits

Packaging companies will also continue to remain a major source of contamination for various equipment and devices manufactured. Growing need to eliminate and kill microorganisms contaminating the instruments and devices has led the packaging companies to opt for various sterilization services. In order to cease propagation and breeding of the contamination through the manufactured devices, packaging and other manufacturing firms are also collaborating with one-stop-shop sterilization service offering companies. Growing need to maintain sanitization and hygiene level to cease contamination in the packaging industry is expected to contribute towards growth of the global sterilization services market significantly.

While uncontrolled spread of contaminants is fuelling demand for sterilization services in several industries, growth of the global market is expected to remain inhibited due to various factors. Chemical sterilants such as ethylene oxide are carcinogenic and has been known for causing bodily and respiratory distress. In addition, application of such chemical sterilants can hinder the operability of the electronic components embedded in the medical devices. In order to avoid the adverse impact of the chemical sterilants has led to the manufacturing, packaging and healthcare companies to opt for an alternative option such as chlorine dioxide and hydrogen peroxide. Bound to these factors, the global sterilization services market is expected to witness an inhibiting growth during the forecast period.
