The market is estimated to register growth at a remarkable CAGR forecast during 2022-2027 owing to rising prevalence of healthcare-associated infections and increasing number of surgical procedures.

The global medical device cleaning market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.31% during the forecast period from 2022 to 2027. The factors such as the rising prevalence of healthcare-associated infections, an increasing number of surgical procedures, increased hospital admissions owing to the rising prevalence of various chronic and infectious diseases, increasing healthcare expenditure, and others are expected to result in appreciable revenue growth in the medical device cleaning market during the forecast period (2022-2027).

Medical Device Cleaning Market Dynamics:

Among the noteworthy drivers of the medical device cleaning market, the increasing number of surgical procedures turns out to be the major factor responsible for accelerating the medical device cleaning market. For instance, as per the latest data provided by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, around 242, 296 cataract surgery were performed in Australia in 2019 and about 53,700 transluminal coronary angioplasty procedures were performed in Canada in 2020. Also, as per the same source, around 72,382 total knee replacements were performed in South Korea in 2020 and nearly 47,304 appendectomy procedures happened in 2020 in the United Kingdom.

The rising prevalence of healthcare-associated Infections such as central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs), catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI), surgical site infections (SSI), and others is another major factor driving the growth of the medical devices cleaning market. As per the World Health Organization 2022, out of every 100 patients in acute-care hospitals, seven patients in high-income countries and 15 patients in low- and middle-income countries will acquire at least one healthcare-associated infection (HAI) during their hospital stay. On average, 1 in every 10 affected patients will die from their HAI. To avoid the risk of HAI, the proper cleaning and disinfection of medical devices are very necessary.

However, concerns regarding the safety of reprocessed instruments and difficulties associated with the cleaning and disinfection of complex medical devices may act as a restraint in the market growth for medical device cleaning.

The medical device cleaning market saw enormous growth during the period of COVID- 19 pandemic. Owing to the rising number of people suffering from COVID-19, hospitals witnessed a surge in hospital admissions for COVID-19 patients. To avoid the spread of COVID- 19 virus, the demand for regular cleaning and disinfection of hospital surfaces and medical instruments increased tremendously, thereby leading to the growth of the medical device cleaning market. Moreover, with the resumption of activities across the healthcare sector, it has been uplifting for the medical device cleaning market during the forecast period from 2022-2027.

Medical Device Cleaning Market Segment Analysis:

Medical Device Cleaning Market by Detergent Type (Enzymatic and Non-Enzymatic,), Process (Cleaning [Pre Cleaning, Manual Cleaning, and Automatic Cleaning] and Disinfection [High-Level Disinfection, Intermediate Level Disinfection, and Low-Level Disinfection), Application (Endoscopes, Surgical Instruments, and Others), Geography (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World)

Based on the detergent type segment of the medical device cleaning market, the enzymatic category is projected to register a significant growth in revenue in the overall medical device cleaning market during the forecast period (2022-2027).

This can be ascribed to the advantages associated with enzymatic detergents.

Enzymatic detergents are capable of removing organic debris, minerals, bioburden, and other contaminants from the surface of medical devices and thereby offer enhanced patient safety and better clinical outcomes. They have both cleaning and disinfection properties and are effective at high temperatures and in low concentrations.

Enzymatic detergents offer faster cleaning of medical devices by speeding up the cleaning process by 1,000,000 times and decreasing the cleaning contact time by 10 to 15 times as compared to detergents with the same surfactants and ingredients.

Moreover, enzymatic detergents extend the life of the instruments by reducing the wear and tear of medical devices that may happen because of the cleaning process using corroding detergent chemicals and neutralizers.

Enzymatic detergents are useful in cleaning hard-to-reach areas in the case of various complex medical devices.

For example, Enzym Med 4 by Vesismin Health is a tetra enzymatic detergent that allows efficient cleaning of medical devices such as rigid and flexible endoscopes, and surgical, dental, and orthopedic instruments among others.

Therefore, considering the advantages associated with enzymatic detergents and their growing popularity, this product category is expected to generate considerable revenue thereby pushing the overall growth of the global medical device cleaning market during the forecast period.

North America is expected to dominate the overall Medical Device Cleaning Market:

Among all the regions, North America is expected to lead in revenue generation in the global medical device cleaning market. This can be ascribed to the increasing number of surgical procedures, increased patient population suffering from multiple diseases, increasing geriatric population, availability of high-tech healthcare facilities, government support, a highly potent market in terms of product development and launches, and the local presence of key market players among other factors in the region.

One of the prominent factors supporting the growth of the North America medical device cleaning market is the availability of high-tech medical facilities. According to the data published by the American Hospital Association 2022, there are around 6,093 hospitals in the United States with 920,531 staffed beds in total. As per the same source, the total expense of all the US hospitals was USD 1,213,881,001,000 in 2020. This indicates that the people in the United States are facilitated with high-tech and comparatively good healthcare facilities which in turn attracts more people to get benefit from it if they are suffering from any kind of mild or severe medical condition. Thus, leading to increased hospital admissions. As per the above-mentioned source, in 2020, around 33,356,853 hospital admissions happened in the US, indicating the usage of a large number of medical devices in the diagnosis and treatment of patients, positively impacting the growth of the medical device cleaning market.

The increasing risk for healthcare-associated infections is another factor governing the United States medical device cleaning market. As per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 2020, every day about 1 in 31 patients has at least one healthcare-associated infection.

Therefore, the above-mentioned factors are expected to bolster the growth of the medical device cleaning market in the United States during the forecast period.
