Medical Device Cleaning Market Research, 2031

The global medical device cleaning market size was valued at $11.9 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $31.3 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 10.4% from 2022 to 2031. Cleaning medical devices and instruments is a process that helps to keep a patient safe.Sanitization or disinfection of medical devices can be accomplished using a variety of chemicals and reagents. It aids in killing microbes, or a foreign particle that is responsible for infecting healthy people.

Medical Device Cleaning Market

The increasing need for various surgical operations for various chronic illnesses and medical conditions is one of the key driving forces for the global medical device cleaning market growth. The rise in prevalence of hospital-acquired infections is expected to be a major contributor to the overall market's steady growth during the forecast period. Rise in physician and patient awareness of the benefits of medical device cleaning is anticipated to provide profitable opportunities for market expansion. Furthermore, specialized cleaning solutions have gained popularity around the world due to their ability to aid in the breakdown of specific proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates.

In order to save money and reduce waste, healthcare providers reprocess medical devices. Concerns have been raised about the safety and performance of reprocessed devices. Inadequate instrument cleaning can lead to the retention of blood, tissue, and other biological debris in reusable devices, increasing the risk of surgical-site infections (SSIs) in patients. These factors limit the acceptance of reprocessing among hospital administrators' and physicians.

The industry players are investing a lot of effort on the R&D of smart and unique strategies to sustain their growth in the market. These strategies include product launches, mergers & acquisitions, collaborations, partnerships, and refurbishing of existing technology. In May 2022, Purell Healthcare Surface Disinfecting Wipes were introduced by GOJO Industries, the company that manufactures Purell products. These wipes are hospital-grade surface disinfecting wipes that kill germs in one step.

The medical device cleaning market is segmented into Device Outlook, Technique Outlook, EPA Classification Outlook and End-User.

Medical Device Cleaning Market by Device Outlook

By device outlook, the semi-critical segment dominated the market in 2021. Mucus membrane-exposed devices are considered semi-critical. Devices in this category include dental tools, endoscopes, and some surgical tools. Semi-critical  devices must be sterilized before use in medical sector, usually with heat or chemicals as it requires high frequency of sterilization. Increased use of disposable devices, falling pricing as a result of intense competition, and strict regulatory standards by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are all factors affecting market growth.

Medical Device Cleaning Market by Technique Outlook

By technique outlook, the disinfection segment dominated the global medical device cleaning market share in 2021. In the reprocessing of semi-critical and critical medical devices, disinfection is an important step. Disinfectants used in this step are classified as bactericidal, fungicidal, or virucidal. The materials chosen are generally determined by the type of medical equipment. However, choosing such materials for processing devices such as endoscopes is difficult. In this segment, disinfectants in combination with detergents are also considered.

Medical Device Cleaning Market by EPA Classification Outlook

By EPA classification outlook, the Intermediate level segment dominated the global medical device cleaning market share in 2021. Intermediate level disinfectants are tuber culocidal chemical agents that kill disease-causing microbes. Water-based phenolics, quat & alcohol blends, bleach, and hydrogen peroxide blends are some of the most common intermediate-level disinfectants. The rise in prevalence of HAIs and the spread of infectious diseases drive this segment’s expansion.

Medical Device Cleaning Market by End-User

By end user, the hospitals segment dominated the global medical device cleaning market share in 2021. The significant proportion in this sector is responsible for the growing number of hospitals and clinics in developed countries. Hospital-acquired infections are thought to be one of the major health concerns affecting patient recovery, with a significant impact on global mortality rates. According to WHO guidelines for HAI prevention, the duration of hospitalization for people suffering from HAIs has increased by approximately 8 days. One of the major concerns for hospitals is the high risk of infection from blood-borne pathogens, drug-resistant pathogens, and other infectious agents in operating rooms.

Medical Device Cleaning Market by Region

By region, North America dominated the global market in 2021 and is projected to remain the fastest-growing medical device cleaning market forecast period. A consistent number of strategic collaborations adopted by key market players to broaden their product portfolio and infection control capabilities are expected to account for the region's larger share. Furthermore, stringent government regulations governing the disinfection and cleaning of medical equipment, as well as favorable reimbursement policies are expected to drive the regional market for medical device cleaning during the forecast period. Growing use of non-disposable medical devices and increased demand to reduce costs associated with hospital-acquired infections are two of the primary factors driving the increased adoption of sterile practices.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Medical Device Cleaning Industry

  • COVID-19 is anticipated to have a positive impact on the medical device cleaning market. Environmental surfaces are more likely to be contaminated with the COVID-19 virus in healthcare settings where certain medical procedures are performed. As a result, these surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected to prevent future transmission, particularly in facilities that admit COVID-19 patients.
  • This recommendation applies to non-traditional venues for the isolation of COVID-19 patients with uncomplicated and moderate disease, such as residences and non-traditional facilities, which is expected to promote market growth.
  • The growing number of patients infected with COVID-19 and the increasing rate of hospitalisation during this phase increased demand for medical device cleaning products. Sanitizers, detergents, and other related products saw a significant increase in demand. As coronavirus is a contagious infection, the importance of medical device cleaning market size increased dramatically during this period.
