Medical device cleaning is a process that medical devices undergo to maintain their cleanliness and sterility. Various products are widely available in the market through both online and offline modes of distribution that assist in maintaining the cleanliness of medical devices. While cleaning, one must be very careful about exposure to bio-hazard materials. The best way is to pre-clean the various patient-care devices with water, detergent, or an enzymatic cleaner before a level of disinfection or sterilization.
Global Medical Device Cleaning Market Dynamics
- Increasing Rate of Infectious Diseases
According to the National Nosocomial Infection Surveillance (NNIS) System report, most hospital-acquired UTIs are related to CA-bacteriuria, and catheterization is the most frequently occurring healthcare-associated infection worldwide, resulting in around 40% of hospital-acquired infections in the U.S. every year. Furthermore, a rise in the incidence of SSIs is estimated to enhance the penetration of infection control measures. According to NIH, in 2018, around 40% to 60% of infections were expected to be SSIs. This increasing infection rate instigates higher patient device cleaning, boosting the market growth.
- Growing Preventive Measures
The constant effort of infection prevention and control measures has significantly reduced the number of hospital-acquired infection cases. The situation is anticipated to enhance in the upcoming years. As per a report issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2022, SSI standardized infection ratio (SIR) related to all NHSN operational procedure categories combined was reduced by around 5% in 2020 compared to the previous year. Thus, this factor boosts market growth.
- Increasing Strategic Developments by Market Players
Several strategic developments are associated with market players, leading to market growth. For instance, the association for experts in infection control and epidemiology, the biggest association for infection prevention and control (IPC) professionals, established a strategic relationship with Metrex Research, LLC in 2021. The program builds long-term associations with industry partners to share the goal of reducing infection risk. Therefore, the market for medical device cleaning is anticipated to grow rapidly in the upcoming years. Thus, this factor boosts market growth.
- Growing Demand for Sterilization
The increasing demand for sterilizations has led to the growth of the market. Steam and EtO sterilization is the most commonly used method in hospitals. The launch of surgical devices made of materials other than stainless steel surged the need to find heat sterilization substitutes. Thus, these factors are increasing the market growth.
- Increasing Risk of Surgical Site Infections
The huge use of medical cleaning devices imposes a danger of transmission of surgical site infection, impeding the market. Additionally, the cleaning procedure is a complicated technological process that leads to multiple infections because of repeated use. Thus, this factor is restricting the market growth.
