Sterilization Equipment and Supplies: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) November 17, 2014
Follow us on LinkedIn – Increased emphasis on maintaining hygiene and cleanliness across medical and non-medical industries is helping drive growth in the sterilization equipment and supplies market. Sterilization equipment represents one of the most critical devices in a medical facility as a result of the increasing number of minimally invasive procedures worldwide. Stringent regulatory initiatives taken up by governments across the world to equip hospitals with essential sterilization standards is another major factor propelling hospital administrators to integrate infection control products, including sterilization equipment. Infrastructure upgrades and replacements will continue to offer attractive opportunities for growth as hospitals begin responding to the need for maintaining sophisticated systems and equipment for disinfection.
Sterilization represents a key element in the food manufacturing industry ranging from processing of foods (food irradiation and pascalization) to sterilization of prepackaged foods. With radiation sterilization obtaining FDA approval for processing different types of foods such as poultry, vegetables, pork, and fresh fruits, the potential for gamma sterilization is expected to increase in the near future. Other industries that hold important growth potential for sterilization equipment include electronic components, brewing, sewage treatment, drinking water analysis, and clinical waste disposal. Low-temperature sterilization technique represents the fastest growing sterilization technique driven by its compatibility with heat-sensitive equipment, quicker turnaround time and easy access to wrapped sterile devices and instruments.
As stated by the new market research report on Sterilization Equipment and Supplies, the United States represents the largest market worldwide, followed by Europe. Asia-Pacific is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 8.7% over the analysis period.
