The rising geriatric population and growing prevalence of chronic diseases is leading to a high number of surgical procedures which is driving the demand for sterilization tools which, in turn, is driving growth in the autoclaving trays market. The implementation of strict regulations on sterilization & disinfection and the strong presence of advanced healthcare infrastructure is further fuelling the demand for autoclaving trays. Also, due to the rise in cosmetic surgeries, the demand for sterilization trays is increasing, which is fostering growth in the market.

The growing number of operating room and emergency room procedures is driving the product demand. Moreover, a surge in the number of surgical cases, a rise in health expenditure, growing and aging population, growing cases of hospital-acquired disease, and increasing government initiatives for adopting and promoting medical sterilization trays are expected to spur growth in the market.

In addition, the increasing number of ambulatory surgical centers and heavy investment in the healthcare sector are amplifying the sales of these trays. The increasing number of ambulatory surgical centers is attributed to the rising preference for minimally invasive surgeries.

On the other hand, autoclaving containers played a key role in preventing the spread of COVID-19 in health facilities by allowing the facility of sterilization of medical tools by employing these trays. During the outbreak, patient-to-patient pathogen transmission through medical tools and devices was prevented by proper sterilization of the medical devices by using autoclaving containers. With COVID-19 cases still prevalent in few numbers, the pandemic has provided a huge stimulus for the market to expand.

The need for sterilizing equipment or disinfecting medical devices has increased during the pandemic which has provided momentum to product sales. Also, with the inappropriate sterilization of endoscopic devices, surgical tools, and respiratory care devices, the risk of catching diseases becomes high which further amplifies the demand for autoclaving containers to prevent disease spread. Apart from this, rising prevalence of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) is another growth driver factor inducing growth in the market.

HAIs are a serious problem in healthcare management which sometimes lead to morbidity and mortality. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has estimated that in American hospitals alone, around 1.7 million infections are HAIs, out of which 22% are surgical site infections. This data reflects the importance of proper sterilization of surging instruments including autoclaving containers in the prevention of infection.

Surgical site infections are normally occurring HAIs, credited to the surgical placement of prosthesis or implants which are caused by exposure to instruments and materials brought in contact during surgical procedures. The common bacteria responsible for HAIs comprises methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Klebsiella, Enterococcus, C. difficile, E. coli, and Pseudomonas. To prevent the breeding ground for these bacteria, autoclaving trays are widely used.

North America is expected to dominate the global autoclaving trays market by accounting for over 42.4% market share by end of the forecast period. Factors such as rising cases of surgical procedures and a rise in chronic diseases are expected to drive growth in this region.

The market in Asia Pacific is projected to grow with fastest CAGR of 4.5% during the forecast period. The growth is attributed to rapidly growing medical infrastructure, high spending on healthcare, and increasing per capita income levels in this region.
