With a rise in awareness of food quality and increase in exports of exotic fruits and vegetables across countries, there has been a rise in food sterilization and disinfection. Pharmaceutical sterilization plays a vital role and help in making drugs safe for patient use. This is majorly done using filtration technologies and gamma irradiation of the pharmaceutical components and powders like APIs. The role of sterilization in medical packaging has been of crucial importance, especially of finished products such as saline bottles, needles, syringes etc.
Along with sterilization, cleaning and sanitation are also important activities carried out in healthcare, food and pharmaceutical industry. Hand disinfectant market is the fastest growing segment as hands are considered to be the primary cause of cross infection. The endoscope reprocessing market is anticipated to show healthy growth in the upcoming years due to continued instrument development, and increasing minimally invasive surgery procedures. The other important factor responsible for the growth of disinfection market will be the increasing usage of single-use technology products like medical non-wovens and face masks.
There has been a rise in trend for contract sterilization services due to stringent regulatory requirements from regulatory agencies like ISO and AMMI. The OEMs prefer outsourcing as it helps in cost reduction in sterilizing equipments in-house by focusing on their core competencies of business. However, in the near future in-house sterilization is expected to give healthy competition to contract sterilization service market mainly due to advent of hydrogen gas plasma and vapor hydrogen peroxide that are preferred to be used in-house. It also provides better quality assurance with just-in-time facility for sterilized products. Gamma and E-beam services are poised to have better growth over ETO in the near future due to their wider applications with respect to food, pharmaceutical, medical devices, life sciences and cosmetic products sterilization.
