Medical device that is reusable provide healthcare professionals with an opportunity to treat multiple patients. Though the idea seems quite fascinating, reusable devices are often prone to severe contamination that have presence of biological debris. This debris allows microbes to escape disinfection process causing severe healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). Thus, the device has to undergoes “reprocessing,” wherein a multistage process is carried out to disinfect it. The multistage process starts with cleaning, disinfecting, inspecting, and sterilization of the devices. The process results in a highly sterilized device that can be used more than once on the same patient. Inadequate and unbalanced reprocessing may lead to underlying issues such as tissue irritation.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Increase has been witnessed in the demand for medical supplies to take care of infected population. Respiratory support devices such as atomizers, life support machines, oxygen generators, and monitors are among the majorly used medical devices in primary clinical treatment. Moreover, COVID-19 has led to a huge surge in demand for medical supplies such as personal protective equipment including masks, gloves, and protective eyeglasses. The need for medical supplies has increased significantly among both from healthcare professionals and civil population for precautionary measures, owing to rise in number of COVID-19 cases worldwide. Manufacturers of these products have a chance to capitalize this increased demand for medical supplies to ensure adequate and continuous supply of personal protective equipment in the market. Therefore, COVID 19 is expected to have a significant impact on the global medical device reprocessing market.

Top Impacting Factors

  • Use of reusable medical devices can ease out supply chain burdens for hospitals working on tight budgets by significantly reducing the cost required to reprocess the device. The process involves taking into cognizance all the stakeholders involved right from the top leadership to the clinical staff and subsequently conducting the research. Device such a catheter, which is disposed after first use can be reprocessed and made available for future use. This results in a reprocessed catheter, which is half price, thus easing out the company finances.
  • Another important factor impacting the medical device reprocessing boom is the waste management. Single-use devices such as catheters and surgical drills are designed for a single-use setup and are disposed post that. This leads to a large chunk of medical waste that is tossed in the oceans. To counter this, reprocessing provides a way out by improving the circular system approach, thus enhancing healthcare industry’s environmental performance.
  • However, reuse of single-use devices may lead to serious pitfalls for the patients, including injuries and cross-infection. To add on, diagnostic errors may have potential hazardous consequences.
  • As the patient under consideration is the ethical center of the whole market structure, the patient should be informed beforehand about the potential risks of carrying out the diagnosis through reprocessed medical devices and should thus consciously agree for the treatment.

Key Market Trends

  • Healthcare workers in Europe are reusing single-use medical devices due to benefits it provides such as overall cost saving and environment friendliness.
  • Countries such as Japan and France wherein there were no set guidelines and regulations for the use of  single-use medical devices have now mandated the use of reprocessing technique, owing to growing demand and pressure from global market players.
  • Asia-Pacific is witnessing growth in the reprocessing market, owing to rising cases of chronic diseases; rising healthcare expenditures in countries such as India, China, and Bangladesh; and   general awareness about the reprocessed medical devices.
  • COVID-19 has severely  impacted the whole medical device industry with health experts and critics implementing stringent regulations on reprocessed medical device.
