COVID-19 IMPACT ON THE ENZYMATIC CLEANING MARKET
An enzymatic cleaner is used in healthcare facilities to aid in the cleaning and decontamination of medical devices and other medical equipment and utensils. Enzymes are macromolecular biological catalysts that speed up chemical reactions; this usually occurs in the body, but in the case of enzymatic cleaners, the process is used for a different purpose. In a nutshell, different enzymes break down different types of stains.
Lipolases work on fats or oil-based stains, proteases break down protein-based stains, and amylases tackle carbohydrates and starches. Based on device type, the enzymatic cleaning market is segmented into non-critical, critical and semi-critical. The semi-critical devices segment is expected to be the largest revenue contributor in the forecast period.The breakout of COVID-19 has resulted in boosting the growth of the enzymatic cleaning market across the globe.
The virus is highly contagious and in order to avoid it from spreading, it is important to clean and disinfect the materials as much as possible. The market is expected to experience significant growth during the forecast period as well due to long lasting impact of the virus.
Enzymatic Cleaning Market: Drivers and Restraints
The enzymatic cleaning market is expected to experience significant growth in the forecast period. Growth in the number of surgical procedures is driving the market for global enzymatic cleaning market. Increasing adoption of preventive measures to reduce hospital acquired infections coupled with introduction of advanced materials and method for processing of medical equipment is augmenting the market.
Additionally, the rising incidence of acute diseases and regulatory requirements & compliance are also expected to boost the growth of the global enzymatic cleaning market. On the other hand, increasing preference of the single use instruments is hampering the growth of this market.
Enzymatic cleaning Market: Overview
The global market for enzymatic cleaning is estimated to experience a significant growth.Based on device type, the global enzymatic cleaning market is segmented into non-critical, critical and semi-critical. The semi-critical devices segment is expected to be the leading revenue contributor during the forecast period.
This is because the quantity and frequency of usage of materials and equipments for reprocessing of semi-critical devices is considerable higher as compared to other types. However, the non-critical devices are estimated to register moderate growth in the upcoming years.
Based on process, the enzymatic cleaning market is divided into presoak, automatic, manual cleaning and disinfection. The disinfection segment is expected to contribute the most towards the growth of enzymatic cleaning market due to increasing prevalence of Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI).
Enzymatic Cleaning Market: Regional-Wise Outlook
Geographically, the enzymatic cleaning market is segmented into seven regions viz. South Asia, East Asia, Europe, Latin America, North America, Oceania and Middle East and Africa. The North America is expected to account for the largest share in the enzymatic cleaning market due to rising focus on healthcare expenditure and increasing research and development of diagnosis.
Europe is expected to have the second largest market for global enzymatic cleaning market due to acceptance of diagnosis treatment. South Asia is anticipated to experience fastest growth in the enzymatic cleaning market as a result of high population in the developing countries. It will be more convenient to adopt safe cleaning methods over single use instruments.
Developing medical infrastructure and increasing awareness of HAI’s may lead to steady growth in Latin America. In the Middle East and Africa the market growth is expected to be limited due to slow economic growth, underdeveloped infrastructure and lower access to technological advancement.
