The global sterilization services market is projected to reach USD 3.31 Billion by 2022 at a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing focus on outsourcing of sterilization processes among pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, and medical device manufacturers; increasing prevalence of hospital-acquired infections; growth in the number of surgical procedures; and rising focus on food sterilization and disinfection. Also, factors such as the growth in the medical devices market, emerging markets, and increasing demand for e-beam sterilization are further providing growth opportunities for the global market during the forecast period.

The sterilization services market in this report is segmented on the basis of sterilization method, type, mode of delivery, and end user. This report also provides market information on major regional segments, namely, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World.

Based on sterilization method, the ethylene oxide segment dominated the sterilization services market in 2016. The growth can be attributed to its extensive usage in various applications, including medical device sterilization, food testing, pharmaceutical sterilization, and sterilization and disinfection in the life sciences industry. Moreover, advantages such as the penetration capabilities, high material compatibility, and low costs associated with the use of this sterilization method are also expected to drive market growth.

On the basis of type, the sterilization services market is segmented into contract sterilization services and sterilization validation services. The contract sterilization services segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This is attributed to the growing preference for contract sterilization by medical device companies as well as the increasing outsourcing of sterile processing by hospitals to specialized third-party vendors in order to reduce in-house costs related to sterilization.

Based on mode of delivery, the sterilization services market is segmented into offsite sterilization services and onsite sterilization services. In 2016, offsite market accounted for the largest share of the global market. The limited availability of space in in-house sterile processing departments, better efficiency of contract sterilization process than in-house sterilization, greater output with less financial risk, and the cost reduction benefits offered by offsite sterilization services are the key factors supporting its growth.

On the basis of end user, the global sterilization services market is segmented into medical device companies, hospitals and clinics, pharmaceutical & biotechnology industry, and other end users. In 2016, the medical device companies segment accounted for the largest share of the global market. The growth in this end-user segment can be attributed to factors such as the increasing number of medical device companies in Asia Pacific, rising need to ensure sterility, and increasing use of single-use products.

Sterilization Services Market

In 2016, North America dominated the global sterilization services market. The growth in this market can mainly be attributed to the growing outsourcing of sterilization services by medical devices companies and hospitals, rising instance of HAIs, growing regulations for the use of sterilized medical devices, increasing number of surgeries performed in the US, and growing intensity of industry competitiveness.

The Asia Pacific region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Factors such as growing economies of China and India, increasing incidence of nosocomial infections, expanding medical device and pharmaceutical industry, and improved healthcare infrastructure in Asian countries are driving the growth of the sterilization services market. In addition, growing medical tourism in the region, especially for cardiovascular, orthopedics, oncology, and fertility treatments, is expected to increase the focus on the need for proper sterilization services in healthcare setups.

Factors such as the carcinogenic nature of ethylene oxide and difficulty in the sterilization of advanced medical instruments are likely to hinder the growth of the sterilization services market to some extent.
