Increasing Prevalence of Healthcare Associated Infections

Millions of people across the world get affected by HAIs (healthcare-associated infections) while receiving health treatments. Factors such as inadequate hygiene environment conditions, poor infrastructure absence of guidelines, and lack of knowledge regarding infection control measures are increasing the prevalence of HAIs. The common HAIs caused by inadequate sterilization procedures are hepatitis B and C, surgical site infections (SSI), HIV infection, urinary and vascular catheter-associated infections, and ventilator-associated infection. Healthcare-associated infections create additional suffering for patients, increase hospital stays with high cost, and resists the function of antimicrobials. According to the WHO, annual expenditure due to healthcare-associated infections is estimated to be approximately US$ 7.7 billion in Europe and US$ 6.5 billion in the US. The above mentioned facts highlight the importance of sterilization in the healthcare domain to prevent HAIs. Lack of sterilization in surgical instruments and reusable objects such as endoscopic devices, respiratory care devices, and hemodialysis devices, lead to HAIs.

The ethylene oxide (ETO) sterilization segment held the largest share of the market. ETO is colorless gas that is commercially used in a variety of applications, such as the production of textiles, and the sterilization of personal care items and medical devices. It is the most common and crucial sterilization method during surgical procedures and other medical treatments. The process involves exposing products to ETO gas under vacuum in a sealed chamber. ETO has an ability to penetrate multiple layers of packaging, making it suitable for the broad range of materials. The size, shape, and material composition of many medical devices make ETO the most suitable sterilization method as other methods such as steam and radiation do not provide the required levels of sterility. Moreover, using non-ETO sterilization methods might result in material degradation of several devices, compromising product safety for patients.

Sterilization Services Market Segmentation Review

The global sterilization services market, based on mode of delivery, has been segmented into offsite sterilization services and onsite sterilization services. The offsite sterilization services segment held the largest share of the market, by mode of delivery. Hospital infections pose various challenges to health centers. Healthcare-associated infections increase the hospitalization period and complications in patient condition. Currently, the healthcare services market is changing rapidly. There is an intense competition among service providers, and policies governing the industry are continually evolving.
