Sterilization Technologies are the processes used to reduce the growth of all viable life forms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, and spore forms from the surfaces of equipment, pharmaceuticals, medications, food ingredients, and biological culture medium. Sterilization Technologies are widely used in the medical centers, life sciences, food processing, pharmaceutical, agriculture and cosmetics. Majority of the products in the healthcare facilities and medical device industry are terminally sterilized. There are many types of sterilization methods such as Steam Sterilization, Ethylene Oxide, DepyrogenationDry heat, chemical sterilization, radiation and sterile filtration. Infections from medical devices could be very harmful. When medical tools are used, the device gets infected. If left unchecked or not disinfected properly, then it is highly likely that bacteria will grow. Medical Sterilization prevents the growth of the diseases and also prevents the spreading of the diseases during double surgeries. This has led to the adoption of sterilization technologies. Hence, this could lead the market for the sterilization technologies.
According to the report by World Health Organisation (WHO), almost 1 in 10 people fall ill every year from eating contaminated food and as a result 420,000 die every year. Most affected population are the kids under five years of age, approximately 125,000 children die every year due to foodborne diseases. Worldwide, the most affected regions are Africa and South- East Asia. These factors have driven the demand for the use of sterilization technologies in food & beverage industries and could lead sterilization technologies market.
