The global sterilization services market is projected to reach USD 3.31 billion by 2022 at a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period. The factors expected to drive the market include increasing focus on outsourcing of sterilization processes among pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, and medical device manufacturers; increasing prevalence of hospital-acquired infections; growth in the number of surgical procedures; and rising focus on food sterilization. However, the harmful effects of ethylene oxide may hinder the growth of the sterilization services market to some extent.

The e-beam sterilization segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period:

On the basis of sterilization methods, the sterilization services market is segmented into ethylene oxide sterilization, gamma sterilization, electron beam sterilization, steam sterilization, and other sterilization methods. The e-beam sterilization segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Features such as the faster turnaround time, no requirement of any radioactive sourcing or resourcing, and uniform & controlled doses for in e-beam sterilization process are the reasons propelling the growth of this market.

The contract sterilization services segment is expected to dominate the sterilization services market in 2016:

As per the type, the sterilization services market is segmented into contract sterilization services and sterilization validation services. In 2016, the contract sterilization services segment accounted for the largest share of the global sterilization services market. Growth in the number of surgical procedures and the associated increase in the prevalence of HAIs, need to comply with government healthcare guidelines, and augmented regulatory requirements in the medical device and food sterilization markets are the major factors driving the growth of this segment.

The offsite sterilization services segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period:

On the basis of mode of delivery, the sterilization services market is segmented into offsite sterilization services and onsite sterilization services. The offsite sterilization services segment is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The limited availability of space in in-house sterile processing departments, better efficiency of contract sterilization process than in-house sterilization, greater output with less financial risk, and the cost reduction benefits offered by offsite sterilization services are the key factors supporting its growth.

The medical device companies segment accounted for the largest share of the sterilization services in 2016:

Based on end user, the global sterilization services market is segmented into medical device companies, hospitals and clinics, pharmaceutical & biotechnology industry, and other end users. In 2016, the medical device companies segment dominated the sterilization services market. Growth in this end user segment is mainly driven by the rising preference for outsourcing of sterilization processes, increasing adoption of single-use medical devices, increasing need for device disinfection, and increasing number of medical device manufacturers in emerging geographies.

North America accounted for the largest share of the market in 2016:

North America accounted for the largest share of the sterilization services market, followed by Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World. The large share of the North American market is mainly due to the stringent regulations regarding sterilization of medical devices and other healthcare products coupled with the presence of major sterilization service providers such as Steris (UK) and Sterigenics (US). Increasing hospital-acquired infections in this region, the rising number of surgical procedures, and need for healthcare cost containment is also responsible for the continuous growth of this market in this region.

The global sterilization services market is projected to reach USD 3.31 Billion by 2022 at a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing focus on outsourcing of sterilization processes among pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, and medical device manufacturers; increasing prevalence of hospital-acquired infections; growth in the number of surgical procedures; and rising focus on food sterilization and disinfection. Also, factors such as the growth in the medical devices market, emerging markets, and increasing demand for e-beam sterilization are further providing growth opportunities for the global market during the forecast period.

The sterilization services market in this report is segmented on the basis of sterilization method, type, mode of delivery, and end user. This report also provides market information on major regional segments, namely, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World.

Based on sterilization method, the ethylene oxide segment dominated the sterilization services market in 2016. The growth can be attributed to its extensive usage in various applications, including medical device sterilization, food testing, pharmaceutical sterilization, and sterilization and disinfection in the life sciences industry. Moreover, advantages such as the penetration capabilities, high material compatibility, and low costs associated with the use of this sterilization method are also expected to drive market growth.

On the basis of type, the sterilization services market is segmented into contract sterilization services and sterilization validation services. The contract sterilization services segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This is attributed to the growing preference for contract sterilization by medical device companies as well as the increasing outsourcing of sterile processing by hospitals to specialized third-party vendors in order to reduce in-house costs related to sterilization.

Based on mode of delivery, the sterilization services market is segmented into offsite sterilization services and onsite sterilization services. In 2016, offsite market accounted for the largest share of the global market. The limited availability of space in in-house sterile processing departments, better efficiency of contract sterilization process than in-house sterilization, greater output with less financial risk, and the cost reduction benefits offered by offsite sterilization services are the key factors supporting its growth.

On the basis of end user, the global sterilization services market is segmented into medical device companies, hospitals and clinics, pharmaceutical & biotechnology industry, and other end users. In 2016, the medical device companies segment accounted for the largest share of the global market. The growth in this end-user segment can be attributed to factors such as the increasing number of medical device companies in Asia Pacific, rising need to ensure sterility, and increasing use of single-use products.
