Sterilization and disinfection are essential components of infection control market procedures. The sterilization market has been divided majorly into two categories,equipmentand services. The equipment market is broadly classified as heat, low temperature sterilization and filtration. The heat sterilization is further divided into dry heat and moist heat; with moist heat further segmented into traditional and table top sterilizers. The traditional and table top sterilizers are further segmented by technology into gravity, vacuum and steam pulse sterilizers. The services market has been classified as in-house and contract services both of which are further bifurcated as EtO, E-beam, gamma and others. The sterilization market has also been considered from the applications perspective and majorly includes pharmaceutical, medical devices, food and life sciences sectors.

The disinfection market is divided into five categories, namely, disinfectors, endoscope reprocessing, disinfectants, medical non-wovens, and disinfectant wipes. The disinfector market is further segmented as washer and flusher disinfectors, while the endoscope reprocessing market is categorized into equipment and consumables. The disinfectant market is segmented into product type and EPA class; product type contains hand, skin, instrument and surface disinfectants, while according to the EPA class the segment is further divided into high-level, intermediate-level and low-level disinfectants. The medical non-wovens disinfectant is classified into drapes, gowns, sterilization wrap and facemasks. In this report, we are also focusing on regions,namely, North America, Europe, Asia and RoW.

North America accounts for the largest share of the infection control market, followed by Europe, Asia, and RoW. Asia is expected to display favorable growth in the coming years primarily due to rise in health awareness, growth of aging population, increase in number of surgical procedures, and growth in per capita income. Established players in the infection control market such as Steris, Getinge, Advanced Sterilization Products, 3M, and Kimberly-Clark, among others, have shown an increased inclination towards Asian countries for market expansion.

New technologies such as E-beam and gamma are poised to have strong market in the future due to their high product compatibility and low prices. These technologies have been beneficial for medical packaging, food irradiation, medical disposables, and microbiological equipment sterilization.

The endoscope reprocessing market is anticipated to show healthy growth in the coming years due to continued instrument development, and increasing minimally invasive surgery procedures. With rise in trend for single-use technology products like medical non-wovens and face masks, disinfection market is expected to foresee strong growth, especially in developing countries.

This report includes company profiles of major players in the sterilization equipment market like Steris Corporation (U.S.), Getinge (Sweden), Advanced Sterilization Products (U.S.), 3M (U.S.), and Belimed (Sweden).

The key contract sterilization service providers are Synergy Health (U.K.), Sterigenics (U.S.), and Steris Isomedix (U.S.) with Synergy occupying around one-fourth of the share
