Europe Steam Autoclave Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The size of the European Steam Autoclave Market has been calculated at USD 0.53 billion in 2022. It is further estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 7.85% and worth USD 0.77 billion by 2027.

The European steam autoclave market is forecasted to experience rapid growth due to the increasing prevalence of nosocomial infections, improving sterilization standards, the growing need for proper medical and biological waste disposal, and the growing adoption of the central sterile supply service in healthcare facilities. Leading companies are encouraged to introduce more robust and faster autoclaves. The demand for steam autoclaves is likely to increase with the increase in surgical activities requiring surgical instruments. During the pandemic phase in 2020-2022, over 22,000 cosmetic surgeries were performed in the United Kingdom. In 2018, the number of cosmetic surgeries reported exceeded over 50,000 procedures. Between 2003 and 2015, the number of cosmetic surgeries almost quintupled with growing demand. These numbers will increase with trending procedures, eventually driving the European steam autoclave market during the forecast period.

Hospitals are prioritizing their infection control protocols to limit the spread of cross infections, and the safety of patients and hospital staff are helping the demand for steam autoclaves. In addition, stakeholders are focusing on growing funds into R&D activities with steam sterilization. The International Organization for Standardization, the British Standards Institution, the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation, and the European Standards Committee have strict regulations for hospitals and clinics, which dictate the importance of reducing cross-infection and sterilization. Since the air in autoclave sterilization releases hazardous steam, the biotechnology & pharmaceutical, and medical device industries should recognize regulatory guidelines.

The need for hazardous waste management is also increasing in the healthcare sector. Adequate disinfection and sterilization in hospitals have also become crucial, and as a result, there has been increasing use of steam autoclaves.

On the other hand, the increasing use of disposable or single-use surgical or medical products will restrain the growth of the European steam autoclave market. In addition, the availability and growing adoption of other sterilization techniques and limited budgets are challenging the development of the studied market.

In the European region, the United Kingdom is anticipated to dominate the studied market during the forecast period owing to the strong presence of autoclave manufacturers in the country, increasing prevalence of infectious diseases, the high number of research and development with favorable investments. In addition, a pronounced adoption of the Central Sterile Supply Department regulations in hospitals and other healthcare facilities has encouraged the market and Europe has seen a reduction in the number of postoperative purulent complications following CSSD arrangements. Furthermore, there is also a growing senior population prone to various chronic diseases. The increase in chronic diseases leads to the high growth of the European steam autoclave market in the near future.

The palpable penetration of the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries in the UK, France, Italy, and Germany will bode well for leading companies looking to increase the European steam autoclave market prospects. Furthermore, factors such as growing concern to control the spread of nosocomial infections, rising prevalence of diseases, increasing adoption of the CSSD guidelines, and the improving health infrastructure contribute to the growing demand for steam autoclaves. In addition, the increasing number of academic and research institutions in developing economies due to the increasing interest in the research and development (R&D) sector is generating high demand, which will help the market grow in the years to come.


A few notable companies dominating the European steam autoclave market profiled in this report are Steris, Belimed Deutschland, Priorclave, Getinge Infection Control, 3M Health Care, Panasonic Healthcare, LTE Scientific, Medisafe International, Belimed Group, and Melag.
