Global steam sterilizer market was valued at 1300 Million US$ in 2018 and is projected to reach 1785 Million US$ by 2024
Steam sterilizer is a pressure chamber used to carry out industrial processes requiring elevated temperature and pressure different from ambient air pressure. Steam sterilizer is used in medical applications to perform sterilization and in the chemical industry to cure coatings and vulcanize rubber and for hydrothermal synthesis.
Global steam sterilizer market
was valued at 1300 Million US$ in 2018 and is projected to reach 1785 Million US$ by 2024, at a CAGR of 5.43% during the forecast period.
According to size, the steam sterilizer can be divided into three types: portable steam sterilizer, vertical steam sterilizer, horizontal Steam Sterilizer.
The steam sterilizer market encompasses a broad range of products with different loading and capacitive configurations. On the basis of chamber volume capacities, orientation, loading, Steam Sterilizer market consists of front, vertical and top loading horizontal and high-pressure configurations of autoclaves. Overall chamber capacity ranges available in the market vary between 10 liters to over 1,500 liters for various applications in medical, dental, and laboratory settings. In 2014, vertical Steam Sterilizer ranging between chamber capacities of 100 liters to 500 liters accounted for the largest share of the market owing to the presence of a product range, which capacity-wise covers the medium range laboratory and medical autoclaves, and the ability to be specialized for bio-hazardous waste management. Due to the growing need for hazardous waste management and medium capacity laboratory sterilization solutions, vertical Steam Sterilizer are expected to grow at a lucrative rate over the forecast period.
Small volume steam sterilizer usually used in medical and research, big volume steam sterilizer usually used in food, agriculture, industry. With the development of society, the packaging of food and medicine is constantly updated, so the sterilization processes also need to be updated or improved. Existing steam sterilizer usually has he following defects:
1. There is air residue in equipment after the steam sterilization, which is the most common cause of the failure of sterilization.
2. The operation process is too complex, as the sterilization is affected by the quality and pressure of steam.
3. The material of the steam sterilizer, some steam sterilizers are easily corroded and to be broken.
So, the future steam sterilizer should overcome all of the above shortcomings, and which also can meet the requirements of different sterilization processes.
Key players in global steam sterilizer market include: 3M, Belimed, Advanced Sterilization Product, Andersen Products, Sakura SI, Cantel Medical Corp, Sterile Technologies, TSO3, Getinge, Matachana Group, SteriGenics International, Steris Plc, SANYO, Boxun, Tuttnauer etc.
