Additionally, the growth in hospital-acquired infections, rising focus on food sterilization and disinfection, growing outsourcing of sterilization services, expanding surgical procedures in hospitals, and the increasing predominance of chronic diseases propels the market growth. Furthermore, the government’s initiatives to improve the usage of sterilization equipment in hospitals and collaborations between the research centers and companies to expand their product portfolios are further significantly fuelling the growth of the sterilization equipment market. In addition, stringent rules and regulations by government authorities to use sterilization equipment to control the spread of the disease are likely to provide growth opportunities for the market.

In APAC, the sterilization market will showcase a CAGR of 8%, attributed to manufacturing, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical companies. In addition, in APAC, the population is aging in countries like China and Japan. In India, the market size accounts for 200 USD billion, attributed to the support related to reimbursement policies and increasing healthcare expenditure.

MARKET RESTRAINTS:

High initial costs required for the installation and maintenance of sterilization equipment are one of the key factors hampering the market growth. The complicated technologies that are being used in sterilization equipment are another notable attribute hindering the market growth. The scarcity of skilled professionals that can operate and maintain sterilization equipment, the stringent regulatory environment for sterilization equipment, and the presence of alternative options to sterilization equipment such as chemical disinfectants or UV sterilization are impeding the market growth. In addition, poor awareness levels among companies regarding the benefits of sterilization equipment and the slow adoption rate of sterilization equipment are showcasing a negative impact on the market’s growth rate.
