Medical Device Cleaning Market Size, Share, Trends, Growth, Production, Consumption, Revenue, Company Analysis and Forecast 2021-2030

Published Date : Mar 2021 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : Healthcare

The global Medical Device Cleaning market size is expected to be worth around US$ 39.40 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Medical Device Cleaning market size was valued at US$ 16.30 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 10.6% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.

Growth Factors

The rising incidence of Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs), the impact of the Covid-19 outbreak, and an increasing number of surgical procedures being performed are the key factors driving the global market.

Moreover, a rise in the number of government initiatives to ensure the highest level of infection prevention is expected to be a significant factor boosting the market growth. Government organizations across the globe are involved in issuing guidelines for spreading awareness about efficient infection prevention measures, which is expected to contribute to the growth of the overall market during the forecast period. For instance, the WHO has issued guidelines for infection prevention and control of pandemic- and epidemic-prone acute respiratory diseases in healthcare. These guidelines span standard precautions, such as hand hygiene and usage of protective apparel for disinfection and sterilization.

Furthermore, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released guidelines for disinfection and sterilization for efficient usage of products by healthcare personnel in a wide array of healthcare settings, such as ambulatory care, home care, hospitals, and others. Thus, the overall penetration rate of infection prevention & control products is expected to increase, which is anticipated to significantly boost the growth of the overall market.

Report Highlights

The semi-critical segment held the largest revenue share of 46.07% in 2020. Semi-critical devices include those that are exposed to the mucus membranes, such as dental equipment, endoscopes, and other surgical instruments. These equipment are required to be sterilized before use, mostly using heat or chemical methods as the frequency of sterilization required is high. When these types of sterilization methods cannot be employed, disinfectants approved by and registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are used. These disinfectants include peracetic acid, ortho-phthalaldehyde, glutaraldehyde, and hydrogen peroxide.

The critical segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth rate over the forecast period. This category includes devices that penetrate body tissues. These equipment are sterilized before packaging and the majority of them are single-use products. Heat sterilization and Ethylene Oxide (EtO) are the most widely used methods in hospital settings. Most of the commercially available single-use surgical equipment are sterilized by the radiation method. However, the process is not performed within hospital settings and thus has not been considered in the scope of this report. Similar to semi-critical devices, the increase in adoption of single-use products has reduced the need for cleaning, disinfecting, and sterilizing critical devices, which is anticipated to hinder the market growth.

The disinfection segment held the largest revenue share of 52.47% in 2020. Disinfection is an important step in reprocessing of semi-critical and critical medical devices. The disinfectants used in this stage are generally categorized as bactericidal, fungicidal, and virucidal. The selection of these materials generally depends on the type of medical equipment. However, the selection of such materials for the processing of devices, such as endoscopes, is difficult. Disinfectants in combination with detergents are also considered in this segment. The sterilization segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth rate over the forecast period.

Sterilization includes the removal of any microorganism present on medical equipment. Steam and EtO sterilization are the most commonly employed sterilization methods in hospital settings. The introduction of surgical devices made of materials other than stainless steel has led to the need for finding alternatives for heat sterilization. Trends of forming a central sterile services department (Sterile Processing Department) is increasing the demand for advanced sterilization equipment to optimize the time and money required in the process.

The intermediate level segment held the largest share of over 50% in 2020. Intermediate level disinfectants are the chemical agents that are tuberculocidal and kill the disease-producing microbes. Some of the most common types of intermediate-level disinfectants are water-based phenolics, quat and alcohol blends, bleach, and hydrogen peroxide blends. The increasing prevalence of HAIs and the spread of infectious diseases are contributing to the segment growth.

The high level segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. High-level disinfection refers to the treatment of dental instruments and medical equipment for inhibiting the microorganisms. It includes the reprocessing of the heat-sensitive semi-critical medical equipment and dental instruments. Some of the most commonly used high-level disinfectants are glutaraldehydes, special hydrogen peroxide, and special peracetic acid products.

North America dominated the market and accounted for over 33.73% share of the global revenue in 2020. A consistent number of strategic collaborations adopted by the key market players to widen their product portfolio and infection control capabilities are expected to be responsible for the greater share captured by the region. In addition, favorable reimbursement policies and stringent government regulations regarding the disinfection and cleaning of medical equipment are expected to fuel the regional market over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing regional market during the forecast period owing to the strong presence of outsourcing organizations, increasing healthcare expenditure, and unprecedented evolution of the healthcare standards and infrastructure across the region. In addition, the outbreak of Covid-19 and the spread of infectious disease are further fueling the market growth in this region. The presence of various voluntary and government organizations focused on improving infection control standards is also one of the major factors contributing to the market growth.
