Global Sterilization Market 2018 - Forecast To 2024: Market is Poised to Reach $8.43 Billion


Dublin, Aug. 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Sterilization Global Market - Forecast To 2024" report has been added to's offering.

The sterilization global market is poised to grow at a high single digit CAGR to reach $8,438.2 million by 2024.

The process of completely eliminating any surface or object from bacteria or other pathogenic agents is referred as sterilization. The preference for a particular method of sterilization depends on many aspects such as constituents of the sterilizing object, type of application, microbial load, classification and suitability of sterilization method. Sterilization is given at most importance in the medical field to prevent the buildup of disease causing pathogens and to spread of diseases.

Rise in incidences of hospital acquired infections (HAIs) and number of surgeries performed are driving sterilization market growth. In addition, use of e-beam radiation sterilization, through contract sterilization industry, advancements in technologies such as use of gas plasma, use of NO2, peracetic acid sterilization, e-beam technology, supercritical CO2 and improving healthcare infrastructure are providing new opportunities for growth to sterilization market.

However, high cost of sterilization technology and capital expenditure for setup of new facility and issues with handling of ethylene oxide are restraining market expansion. Stringent regulations for ensuring sterilization and validation of sterile filtration methods and increasing popularity of single-use products in healthcare, pharma and bio-pharma industries is threatening the market growth.

The Sterilization global market is a highly fragmented, and all the existing players in this market are involved in developing new and advanced products to maintain their market shares.
