The Bulgaria infection control market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.86% over the forecast period 2019 to 2025. The evidence available suggests that the contamination of the surfaces, equipment, patient surroundings, and belongings are the major contributors to the transmission of the important healthcare-associated pathogens. The presence of severe disease-causing pathogens is able to fester in an environment, which is contaminated. These include the methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MSRA) (which causes meningitis, pneumonia, and toxic shock among other diseases) the vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE) (which cause adnominal, pelvic infections), the multi-drug resistant Acinetobacter, Clostridium Difficile, and norovirus. In addition, the infected bronchoscopes are associated with the transmission of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Legionella pneumophilia (one of the pneumonia-causing bacteria), non-tuberculosis mycobacteria, and pseudomonas aeruginosa (which causes urinary tract infections; UTIs). Thus, the presence of the pathogens, the probability of hospital-acquired infections increases multifold, thus leading to an increase I the demand for disinfection and sterilization of instruments such as endoscopes, which are among the leading contributors to contracting nosocomial infections. Hence, these factors act as an augmenting factor in the market growth.

Furthermore, major market players are improving their market position and adding to the growing market by coming up with new and enhanced measures in form of new product launches and production plant expansions to cater to the growing demand and push the market growth. For instance, Mieko International, one of the leading players operating globally and dealing in the provision of technologies and services offers a wide range of products related to infection control. It offers washer-disinfectors as a part of their product portfolio. Some of the products include “TopLine bedpan washer-disinfectors”, “TOPIC bedpan washer”. The “TopLine bedpan washer-disinfectors” contains two products, which are Combined sluice units, and Bedpan washer-disinfectants. The latter product has a compact design and can be fitted properly under a working surface. They are easy to clean, include a hand washbasin area, a lop sink and are available in a wall-mount unit and are in complete compliance with the hand hygiene guidelines. In addition, the former product is able to provide and act as a powerful tool, which able to mitigate the risk of any bacteria being left on the bedpan effectively and efficiently. It has some additional advanced features such as it is able to provide a faster cleaning and disinfection process as it makes the use of short wash cycles and consists of an inbuilt steam generator. It is specially designed using a cutting edge and patented technology, that complies with all the strict hygiene standards. In addition, it includes an air dryer for facilitating the faster drying of the bedpans and in turn, prevents contamination.

The disinfection practices rising in the healthcare industry

The number of operations and tests people are going for such as endoscopy and bronchoscopy and gastro-endoscopy requires very clean and germ-free equipment as there is the presence of serious disease-causing bacteria, which can cause pneumonia, urinary tract infections among other serious bacterial infections. Therefore, the demand for alcohol-based disinfectants is rising in order to protect the patients from the risk of bacterial infections and it is leading to an increase in the practice of efficient disinfection.
