Segment Analysis

The market segmentation for sterilization technology comprises sterilization, process, and end-user.

The types of sterilization technologies are ionizing radiation (electron beam radiation, X-ray radiation and gamma radiation), ethylene oxide, thermal sterilization, filtration, and more. Ethylene oxide technology accounts for the biggest share of 48.1% in the overall market, given its significant penetration, radiation dose’s high strength and exposure time. However, it is likely that the ionizing radiation technology would soon catch up to the ETO segment, as the latter is known to cause neurological conditions and cancer, among other health issues.

The processes involved in sterilization technology include physicochemical (plasma and steam), chemical process (hydrogen peroxide, ozone, and chlorine dioxide), physical processes (microwaves and pulsed light system) and synergetic processes (psoralens UVA and low-temperature steam formaldehyde). 

The top market end users listed in the report are hospitals clinics, medical device manufacturers and pharmaceutical industry. Pharmaceutical industry is presently in the lead and had accrued the highest share of 38.4% and value of USD 1948.10 million in 2017. The segment is also touted to hit a valuation of USD 3163.60 million by 2023, since the industry requires efficient sterilization processes and need to ensure the safety of the products and the process units for the maintenance of their quality. The need to adhere to the stringent norms and standards also bolsters the adoption of the sterilization technology in the pharmaceutical industry.

Regional Analysis

The primary regions across which the sterilization technology market is expected to grow over the forecast period include Europe, the Americas, MEA or Middle East Africa and Asia Pacific or APAC.

In 2017, with the biggest share of close to 40.1%, the American market took the lead and shall remain so throughout the conjectured period. The sterilization technology market in the region is quite lucrative, thanks to the burgeoning pool of patients afflicted with chronic disorders and the resultant growth in hospital admissions as well as surgical procedures. Escalating cases of HAIs, regulations mandating the use of extensively sterilized medical devices and the rising intensity of competition between reputed players in the United States could also translate into significant revenues.

With the fastest growth rate of 8.58%, APAC is strongly backed by the fast developing economies of India and China along with the mounting prevalence of nosocomial infections. The thriving pharmaceutical and medical device industries in the region and the improving healthcare infrastructure have also caused market expansion. The emerging medical tourism trend in the region, particularly for oncology, cardiovascular, fertility treatments and orthopedics is set to bolster the focus of the healthcare system on effective sterilization.
