Market Overview:

The Medical Device Cleaning Market Size is projected to reach USD 4.1 Billion by 2027, with 7.2% CAGR between 2020 and 2027.

Medical devices after their certain use needs to be sterile. This is done for the motive of providing the safety to patients and further avoids infections at the site of wound, and incisions. Moreover, the cleaning of the surgical instruments is more crucial and critical task than cleaning other non-medical devices. The surgical instruments are stained with blood, organic materials pus, tissue, and others things which may cause infections to others during its reuse. Therefore, to clean and make the medical devices disinfectant, the medical device cleaning products are used.

The infections acquired through the hospitals are believed to be one of the major concerns that is affecting many patient’s recovery. This also has a major impact on mortality rates worldwide. According to the WHO, the prevention of HAIs, the rising in the duration of hospitalization of persons suffering from HAIs was around approximately 8 days. Therefore, the prolonged stays are a significant contributor to the overall costs incurred during hospitalization. Hence, the growing clinical urgency to adopt various measures for the prevention of such infections is necessary. Prolonged hospital stays of the patients are also not economical for patients, hospitals and healthcare payers due to high usage of resources for the treatment of the acquired infections.

The additional costs associated with the prolonged hospital stays are mostly a result of high usage of drugs, laboratory equipment and additional diagnostic studies, thus creating an imbalance in hospital resource allocation. Greater risk of infection from drug-resistant pathogens, blood borne pathogens, and other infectious agents in the operation rooms is one of the major concerns for hospitals. For instance, the frequent usage of infected urinary catheters creates a high risk of UTI (urinary tract infection) and may result in Catheter-Associated (CA) UTIs. According to NCBI, the research published states that the UTIs accounted for around 25% of all the bacterial infections. Moreover, ss per the National No socomial Infection Surveillance (NNIS) system report, the most hospital-acquired UTIs are associated with CA-bacteriuria and catheterization is the most frequently occurring infection worldwide, accounting for around 40% of HAIs in the U.S. each year.

A diabetic patient mostly develops severe UTIs that often require an efficient as well as consistent treatment regimen. This is expected to widen the future growth prospects of the infection control market. Such factors is expected to boost the high clinical urgency to prevent the surgical infection and adopt Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), such as masks, surgical gloves, that results in a significant increase in the growth of the medical device cleaning market.
