Sterilization refers to a process that eliminates, or kills all pathogens using various technologies and methods that are applied for sterilization of equipment and medical devices in healthcare institutes. There is an increase in demand for sterilization technologies across the globe. Patient safety and the prevention of hospital-acquired infections being a significant concern have led to the rise in the demand for sterilization technologies in healthcare. The global sterilization technology market is expected to register a CAGR of 8.20% and is anticipated to reach USD 8,142.61 million by 2023.

Sterilization is the process that destroys or eliminates all forms of microbial life and is carried out in health-care facilities by physical or chemical methods. Sterilization technology includes processes such as gamma radiation, electron beam radiation, filtration, ionizing radiation, and thermal sterilization methods to destroy all microorganisms on the surface of an article or in a fluid to prevent disease transmission.
The sterilization technology market is driven by the increasing occurrences of hospital-acquired infections, increasing number of surgical procedures, growth in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, and rising technological advancements in sterilization equipment. However, the stringent regulatory framework is expected to hamper the growth of the market during the forecast period.
Hospital-acquired infections are healthcare-associated infections that occur in patients under medical care who are not present or incubating at the time of admission. According to the World Health Organization, hundreds of millions of patients are affected by healthcare-associated infections (HAI) worldwide each year, leading to significant mortality and financial losses for health systems. Further, as per the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, approximately 30% of patients in Intensive Care Units (ICUs) are affected by at least one episode of healthcare-associated infection. Additionally, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), the prevalence of healthcare-associated infections varies between 5.7% and 19.1% in low- and middle-income countries. These increasing occurrences of HAIs have been leading to substantial financial losses for the overall healthcare system. This vast population affected with HAI are due to insufficient applications of standard and isolation precautions, whereas disinfection and sterilization ensure that medical and surgical instruments do not transmit infectious pathogens to patients. This considerable population affected with HAI and inversely rising need for sterilization are paving the way for a growth curve in the sterilization technology market
The global sterilization technology market has been segmented into type of sterilization, process, and end-user.
The global sterilization technology market based on the type of sterilization has been segmented into ethylene oxide, ionizing radiation (gamma radiation, electron beam radiation, and X-ray radiation), filtration, thermal sterilization, and others. Ethylene oxide takes accounted for 48.1% of market share, due to its high penetration, the strength of the radiation dose, and its exposure time. However, ionizing radiation is also likely to take up equal share due to significant health concerns related to the use of ethylene oxide.
The global sterilization technology, by the process, has been segregated into the chemical process (hydrogen peroxide, ozone, and chlorine dioxide), physicochemical (plasma and steam), synergetic processes (psoralens & UVA and low-temperature steam & formaldehyde), and physical processes (microwaves and pulsed light system). These processes use different compounds for sterilization of articles or surfaces.
Based on the end user, the market has been divided into the pharmaceutical industry, hospitals & clinics, and medical device manufacturers. Pharmaceutical industry dominates the global market for sterilization technology. It accounted for the largest market share of 38.4% and was valued at USD 1948.10 million in the year 2017 and is expected to reach USD 3163.60 million by 2023. Effective sterilization processes are vital within the pharmaceutical industries, and the safety of process units and final products depends on the highest quality of hygienic practice, as well as strict controls and regulatory compliance.
The prominent players in the global sterilization technology market are Advanced Sterilization Products Services Inc., Atec Pharmatechnik GmbH, Sterile Technologies Inc., Steris PLC, 3M Company, Feldmeier Equipment Co., Donaldson Co. Inc., and Beta Star Life Science Equipment Inc.
