Global Medical Device Cleaning Market- Overview

Medical Device Cleaning is a method of cleaning or the removal of contamination from the medical devices after every use through the use of detergents or disinfectants. It is a very crucial process in the healthcare facilities as it removes harmful contaminants such as pathogens, body fluids like blood, organic materials, and others, which can act as an agent for infection spread. Cleaning medical devices can be performed manually using friction and fluidics or mechanically with ultrasound cleaners, washer-disinfectors, washer-sterilizers.

Global Medical Device Cleaning Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Increasing Incidences of Hospital-Acquired Infections (HAIs)

The incidences of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) are increasing at a very rapid rate. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) of the United States, approximately 1.7 million people, including patients, visitors, and hospital staff, contract HAIs every year, resulting in approximately 99,000 deaths. If a patient is admitted to a hospital for major surgery or acute treatment, he or she is at a high risk of becoming infected with HAIs. Therefore, the demand for medical device cleaning is expanding as healthcare facilities are now focusing on ensuring the cleanliness of their devices to decrease the risk of HAIs among patients.

Growing Demand for Various Surgical Procedures

The growing demand for various surgical procedures for the treatment of various chronic diseases and medical conditions is one of the major driving factors of the global medical device cleaning market. Every year, 234 million major procedures are performed in the world, and this number is increasing at a fast pace. Medical devices can absorb visible and hidden bioburden following a procedure, which can house millions of potentially communicable microorganisms Therefore, the medical devices need complete cleaning after every procedure to prevent cross-contamination and the spread of infection among patients and healthcare staff and anyone visiting the hospital premises.

Restraints

High Risk of Complications in The Reusable Medical Devices

Medical device cleaning involves a number of steps. Moreover, there are several complicated medical devices like infusion pumps, dialysis machines, etc., with interconnected parts which may be challenging to clean. Those who are not trained properly for this process may not be able to clean it properly, thereby, increasing the risk of infection spread. Additionally, the cleaning of refurbished medical devices is a sensitive issue as the FDA has warned of several deaths linked to the reuse of urological endoscopes. Additionally, Olympus Medical System Corporation submitted reports regarding bacterial infection-related death of patients. Globally, these issues hamper the growth of the medical device cleaning market.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Medical Device Cleaning Market

Global medical device cleaning saw a boom after the COVID-19 outbreak. As a result of the spread of the deadly virus, the need for frequent and regular cleaning of devices became increasingly important. The healthcare facilities were on high risk as several healthcare workers and patients had tested positive for COVID-19 in healthcare facilities. During COVID-19, there was also a surge in cleaning product demand, which led to cleaning products manufacturing companies expanding their production lines to meet the increase in demand. It is expected that the market will flourish significantly in the post-COVID-19 period, and the healthcare facilities will ensure that such events do not occur again in the future.

Global Medical Device Cleaning Market - By Process

Based on process, the global medical device cleaning market is segmented into disinfection, automatic cleaning, manual cleaning, presoaking/precleaning. The automatic cleaning segment held for the largest market share because of the convenience it offers as it automates the cleaning process which helps in increasing the productivity of the healthcare facilities. This segment can further be classified into enzymatic detergents and non-enzymatic detergents. The disinfection segment, on the other hand, covers a substantial share in the market because of its wide use in the cleaning of critical and semi-critical medical devices like dental equipment, endoscopes, etc.

Global Medical Device Cleaning Market - By Application

Based on applications, the global medical device cleaning market is segmented into surgical instruments, ultrasound probes, dental instruments, other instruments, endoscopes. The surgical instruments segment held the largest market share. Statistically, Stanford Health Care records more than 48 million in-patient surgical procedures per year in the United States alone, and more than 234 million worldwide. Cleaning of instruments is mandatory after each surgery to prevent cross-contamination and the spread of infections. The increasing demand for surgeries is one of the major growth factors for the global medical device cleaning market.
