Enbio AG, a global leader in the autoclave industry, has targeted the Indian healthcare market with its top-of-the-line Swiss-designed sterilizers in August 2023. Enbio is now introducing its innovative and highly advanced B Class Autoclaves to India, which are capable of sterilizing microsurgical instruments within 7-9 minutes. The company has an established presence in 50 countries. Enbio India has devised an ambitious strategy to secure a significant market share within the next two to three years. Additionally, the organization intends to establish a logistical center in India in the near future. The manner in which India addressed infection control has been significantly influenced by the pandemic.  In order to guarantee patient safety and prevent nosocomial infections, medical professionals are now placing a greater emphasis on infection control practices in hospitals and clinics. The increasing demand has given new momentum to the exploration and deployment of sophisticated sterilisation technologies to guarantee a higher level of disinfection and protective measures against pathogens.


Schoeller-Bleckmann Medizintechnik (SBM), a subsidiary of Syntegon, introduces the SBM Essential Line in May 2024. This new series of sterilizers is the result of 50 years of experience. Pharmaceutical manufacturers enjoy considerably reduced delivery times and competitive prices as a result of the standardized foundation of the SBM Essential Line. Simultaneously, the extensive array of sizes and options guarantees that each manufacturer will identify the optimal solution for their sterilization tasks and applications. The SBM Essential Line sterilizers sterilize porous and solid equipment, as well as liquids in containers such as vials, cartridges, or pens, using either a vacuum-steam (ADV), steam-air mixture (SDR), or combined (SDT) process. After the sterilization process, fans, jacket chilling, and internal heat exchangers are made accessible to facilitate rapid cooling. The SBM Essential Line's fundamental pressure vessel is available in twelve distinct configurations, with chamber volumes ranging from approximately 200 to 3,500 liters. The optional air detector module for the ADV and SDT sterilizers is especially pertinent in light of Annex 1, which was implemented in August 2023. In order to verify the complete purging of air from the sterilization chamber and the cargo to be sterilized, Chapter 8.61 mandates the use of an air detector system or daily air removal tests.


Steam Autoclave Market Trends



  • Growing preference for tabletop autoclaves is driving the market growth


Market CAGR for the steam autoclaves is anticipated to observe a 10.5% growth rate till 2027 led by an upsurge in demand by clinics, hospitals, and healthcare centers. Tabletop autoclaves can sterilize in bulk and are preferably considered for medical facilities of all sizes. Tabletop autoclaves have become indispensable during research and tests due to safer protection of water lacking, automatic sterilization control, and fully stainless-steel structure. These autoclaves have a large chamber capacity that permits relocation due to convenient size and ease of set-up.


The gravity displacement segment was valued at over USD 942 million in 2020. Its suitability for sterilizing the most common laboratory media, such as steel utensils, bio-hazardous waste, and glassware, compelled it. Gravity displacement-induced autoclaving is beneficial due to the lack of dependency on peripheral mechanisms to displace ambient air with steam and simple design. Gravity autoclaves are dependable and affordable, thereby increasing the preference and acceptance of these autoclaves. Thus, these autoclaves are among the most recommended and common in the market.


Additionally, against any contamination, the medical equipment requires autoclaving to kill fungus, bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms. Steam autoclaves disinfect and sterilize medical items using high-pressure and temperature steam. As a result, along with an increase in medical procedures and in-hospital infections, the market for steam autoclaves  market is expected to grow in the forecast period. Moreover, the growing demand for high-quality healthcare services and improvements in the healthcare infrastructure in countries like China, India, and parts of Latin America is propelling the market growth in the forecast period. In addition, product advancements such as creating portable and robotized versions are propelling market growth. Increasing applications in the pharmaceutical, healthcare, and dental sectors and strict government regulations are anticipated to grow Steam Autoclave market revenue in the forecast period.
