Europe Sterilization Technologies Market (2016 - 2022)
Sterilization Technologies are the processes used to reduce the growth of all viable life forms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, and spore forms from the surfaces of equipment, pharmaceuticals, medications, food ingredients, and biological culture medium. Sterilization Technologies are widely used in the medical centers, life sciences, food processing, pharmaceutical, agriculture and cosmetics. Majority of the products in the healthcare facilities and medical device industry are terminally sterilized. There are many types of sterilization methods such as Steam Sterilization, Ethylene Oxide, Depyrogenation/Dry heat, chemical sterilization, radiation and sterile filtration.
Infections from medical devices could be very harmful. When medical tools are used, the device gets infected. If left unchecked or not disinfected properly, then it is highly likely that bacteria will grow. Medical Sterilization prevents the growth of the diseases and also prevents the spreading of the diseases during double surgeries. This has led to the adoption of sterilization technologies. Hence, this could lead the market for the sterilization technologies. A Report by CDC in 2015 states, “Approximately 75% of urinary tract infections in the hospitals are associated with urinary catheter”. During the hospital stay, 15-25% of patients suffer from urinary catheter. According to UNICEF, pneumonia is one of the leading causes of death among children under five. In 2015, 920,000 were killed by pneumonia. Increasing number of HAI could be one of the major factors for the growth of the sterilization market.
