Steam Autoclaves Market Overview
An autoclave is a pressure device that is mainly used in a sterilization process, where medical equipment and supplies are sterilized at elevated temperature and pressure than the ambient air pressure. Steam autoclaves are also used in the process of vulcanization of rubber and in chemical industries. They play an important role in sterilization of healthcare waste in hospitals and organizations.
Medical devices get contaminated after usage, and need autoclaving in order to kill bacteria, viruses, fungi, etc. Steam autoclaves provide a physical method for disinfection and sterilization. They work on the basis of steam, pressure and time, and hence, use high pressure and temperature steam for this purpose.
Increasing number of medical procedures and in-hospital infection are main driving factors for growth of the global steam autoclave market. Healthcare and environmental waste produced from hospitals, pharmaceuticals, life science amenities, etc. is increasing day by day, due to which the process of sterilization and waste management has become of utmost importance. This will propel growth of the steam autoclaves market globally.
Key Drivers, Trends, Restraints
With increasing demand from dental, healthcare, and pharmaceutical sectors, the steam autoclaves market is expected to grow at a rapid pace. Implementation of strict government rules and regulations regarding biosafety will boost the global steam autoclave market in coming years. Also, the increasing number of hospitals globally will fuel growth of the steam autoclave market.
Steam autoclaves are also used in dental clinics. Bench top dental steam autoclaves are made of high grade stainless steel, and are used for the purpose of decontamination and sterilization of dental equipment. As the number of incidences in dental disorders, such as cavities, fractured teeth, pulpitis, etc. are increasing, the demand for steam autoclaves is expected to rise. Favorable government rules and regulations and the rising demand for dental services are other key factors spurring growth of the global steam autoclaves market.
Industrial steam autoclaves are also used to process industrial parts at high pressure and temperature. These steam autoclaves are used in the aerospace industry, where they requires to perform the same function. Increasing growth in the aerospace industry is expected to fuel growth of the global steam autoclave market.
Steam autoclaves are used in the process of vulcanization of rubber. It is also called autoclave curing. This type of vulcanization is relatively fast and economical. With growth in the rubber industry, the global steam autoclaves market is expected to grow substantially.
In recent years, the need for hazardous waste management is increasing in the healthcare sector. Maintaining clean, sterilized and disinfected environment in hospitals has become crucial. Also, the growing usage of steam autoclaves and adoption of central sterile services department (CSSD) framework will boost the global steam autoclaves market.
In recent years, many new technologies have evolved in the steam autoclaves market; there are autoclaves which are fully automated. Companies have started manufacturing low cost and more efficient steam autoclaves, which is responsible for fueling growth in the global steam autoclaves market.
