Market Scope

The global infection control market is expected to attain significant revenue at a CAGR of 7.5% during 2017 to 2023. This is driven by the number of HAI cases globally. This can trigger the demand for infection control products and facilitate market growth. Initiatives by healthcare organizations for creating awareness among citizens as well as endorsing preventive measures can work in favor of the market. Strategies for early detection of diseases and quarantining of patient to prevent dissemination of diseases as well as creating of training modules for hospital staff for their safety has become a necessity.

Rising number of infectious diseases is responsible for major number of deaths globally. For instance, acute respiratory diseases (ARDs) is the cause of nearly 4 million deaths annually, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). HAIs are also a cause of concern and affect patient hospital duration. These hospital stays can cause a burden on the patient and raise the level of measures need to prevent the spread of infections.


The global infection control market has been segmented on the basis of type and end-user.

On the basis of type, the global infection control market can be segmented into disinfection products, sterilization products and services, and others. Disinfection products are segmented into endoscope reprocessors, disinfectants, disinfectors, and medical nonwovens. Disinfection products contain strong oxidizing agents which react with water to microbes. They are designed to eliminate microorganisms and used regularly in hospitals. Disinfectants are available in the form of liquids or aerosols for elimination of bacteria while being harmless to individuals. On the other hand, sterilization products and techniques are used to completely eliminate all bacteria from equipment. Some of the cards used during sterilization predict the estimated death time of microorganisms making it safe to use. Instruments such as laryngoscopes, endoscopes, and bronchoscopes are used in diagnosis and treatment of patients and are sterilized on a regular basis to prevent the chances of proliferation of infectious diseases.

Disinfectants are further categorized by type, by formulation, and by EPA classification.

Disinfectants, by type, are classified into surface disinfectants, hand disinfectants, instrument disinfectants, and skin disinfectants. By formulation, it is segmented into disinfectant sprays, disinfectant wipes, and disinfectant liquids. On the basis of EPA classification, it is categorized into low-level disinfectants, intermediate-level disinfectants, and high-level disinfectants.

Meanwhile, in the ‘disinfection products’ segment, medical nonwovens are classified into face masks, surgical drapes, surgical gowns, and sterilization wraps. Disinfectors are further segmented into UV ray disinfectors, washer disinfectors, and flusher disinfectors. Endoscope reprocessors are classified into automated endoscope reprocessors, endoscope tracking systems, and other endoscopic reprocessing products.

In the ‘type’ segment, sterilization products and services are categorized into sterilization equipment, contract sterilization services, by type, and consumables and accessories.

Sterilization equipment are segmented into heat sterilization equipment, radiation sterilization, low- filtration sterilization, and temperature sterilization. Heat sterilization equipment are categorized into moist heat sterilizers and dry heat sterilizers. On the other hand, the low-temperature sterilization segment is further divided into formaldehyde sterilizers, ozone sterilizers, ethylene oxide sterilizers (EtO), hydrogen peroxide sterilizers, and other low-temperature sterilization.

Contract sterilization services, by type is segmented into steam sterilization services, ethylene oxide sterilization (EtO) services, e-beam sterilization services, gamma sterilization services, and other contract sterilization services.

The consumables and accessories are segmented into sterilant cassettes, sterilization indicators, and other consumables and accessories.

End-users in the global infection control market encompass food industry, life sciences industry, medical device companies, pharmaceutical companies, hospitals and clinics, and others.

Regional Analysis

The global infection control market covers four regions, namely the Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), and the Middle East & Africa (MEA).

The Americas accounted for the major market share owing to high awareness of chronic diseases among the populace and large number of providers offering protective equipment. Technological innovations of products which foster sterilization and disinfection, demand for products to minimize HAIs, and rising number of surgical procedures are factors driving regional market growth. 

APAC can exhibit a robust CAGR over the assessment period owing to various outsourcing organizations, improving healthcare standards and infrastructure, and a largesse healthcare expenditure. Institutes are partnering or collaborating with international organizations to increase the knowledge of infection control equipment and methods to create awareness among hospital staff and civilians.

Competition Outlook

Nordion, Inc., STERIS Corporation, Ahlstrom Corporation, Getinge Group, 3M Healthcare Company, Reckitt Benckiser, Matachana, Advanced Sterilization Products, MMM Group, Belimed AG, Pal Internation, Ecolab, Cantel Medical Corporation, Metrex Research, Sotera Health, Halyard Health, and Honeywell International, Inc. are major players of the global infection control market.
