The global sterilization monitoring market is projected to reach USD 631.0 Million by 2022, at a CAGR of 7.5% in the forecast period (2017–2022). Factors such as rising incidence of hospital-acquired infections, increasing number of surgical procedures coupled with the rising geriatric population and chronic disease incidence, technological advancements in sterilization monitoring products, and rising focus on food sterilization are the major factors driving the growth of this market. However, end user noncompliance to sterilization standards poses a major challenge to the growth of this market.

Geographically, the market for sterilization monitoring is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and RoW. Among the four geographic regions, North America is estimated to command the largest share of the sterilization monitoring market in 2017, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific. Emerging markets, including India and China, have become attractive destinations for companies engaged in the development and marketing of sterilization monitoring products. Rising incidence of hospital-acquired infection, increase in the number of surgical procedures, increasing number of hospitals, growing medical tourism industry in the region, and growth in the pharmaceutical and medical devices industry are among the major driving factors for the growth of this market in China and India. For instance, the prevalence of HAIs in India varies between 3.8% and 18.6%. In Indian ICUs, the prevalence of vancomycin-resistant enterococcus (VRE), which causes a dangerous HAI, is five times more than that in the rest of the world. Moreover, the Indian pharmaceutical industry has grown multifold over the past two decades. According to a study by the Department of Pharmaceuticals, PwC, and McKinsey, the Indian pharmaceutical sector accounts for about 2.4% of the global pharmaceutical industry in terms of value and 10% in terms of volume. This sector is expected to reach USD 55 billion by 2020 from USD 20 billion in 2015, at a CAGR of 15.9%. The rising income levels, expansion of pharmaceutical companies, and advanced medical infrastructure have led to the expansion of the pharmaceutical market in India.

As of 2016, 3M Company (U.S.), Getinge Group (Sweden), Cantel Medical Corp. (U.S.), and STERIS plc (U.S.) dominated the global sterilization monitoring market. In the past three years, these companies adopted product launches, product showcase, agreements, and expansions as their key business strategies to ensure market dominance. Cardinal Health, Inc. (U.S.), Mesa Laboratories, Inc. (U.S.), Propper Manufacturing Co. Inc. (U.S.), PMS Healthcare Technologies (Turkey), Hu-Friedy Mfg. Co., LLC (U.S.), and gke-GmbH (Germany) are some of the other players in this market.

The sterilization monitoring market is expected to reach USD 631.0 Million by 2022 from USD 439.5 million in 2017, at a CAGR of 7.5% between 2017 and 2022. Factors such as rising incidence of hospital-acquired infections, increasing number of surgical procedures coupled with the rising geriatric population and chronic disease incidence, technological advancements in sterilization monitoring products, and rising focus on food sterilization are the major factors driving the growth of this market. However, factors such as lack of awareness on sterilization monitoring and dearth of skilled professionals are hampering the growth of this market.

On the basis of technology, the global sterilization monitoring market is segmented into biological monitoring, chemical monitoring, and mechanical monitoring. The chemical indicators segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR owing to its advantage to deliver immediate valuable information about specific parameters of the sterilization process such as time, temperature, and steam quality.

On the basis of product, the biological indicators market is categorized into self-contained vials, spore strips, spore ampoules, and spore suspensions. The self-contained vials segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to faster results, shorter processing time, ease of use, and reduced incubation period. Furthermore, the chemical indicators market is categorized into internal chemical indicators and external chemical indicators. The internal chemical indicators segment are categorized as single-parameter indicators (class 3), multi-parameter indicators (class 4), integrating indicators (class 5), and emulating indicators (class 6). The integrating indicators segment held the largest share of the global internal chemical indicators market.

On the basis of method of Sterilization, the global sterilization monitoring market is segmented into steam sterilization, ethylene oxide sterilization, hydrogen peroxide sterilization, and formaldehyde sterilization. The ethylene oxide (EtO) sterilization segment accounted for the second-largest share of the global market for sterilization monitoring in 2016. The growth of this market can be attributed to the various advantages offered by the method such as low temperature, high efficiency (destroys microorganisms, including resistant spores), large sterilizing volume/chamber capacity, and non-corrosive to plastic, metal, and rubber materials.

Based on process, the market is categorized into pack monitoring, load monitoring, equipment/process monitoring, and exposure monitoring. The load monitoring segment accounted for the second-largest share of the global sterilization monitoring market in 2016. Load monitoring enables the user to make decisions and take actions prior to surgery, which reduces the risks and costs associated with recalls and surgical infections. Moreover, the use of biological indicators in load monitoring reduces the quarantine time by 88% providing BI results in 3 hours. These factors are driving the growth of this market during the forecast period.

On the basis of end user, the market is segmented into hospitals; pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device companies; research & academic institutes; food & beverage industry; and other end users. The pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device companies segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to factors such as increasing number of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies in the Asia-Pacific region, rising need to ensure sterility, and the practice of enhancing aseptic manufacture sterility assurance level (SAL) of pharmaceuticals.
