Rising incidence of hospital-acquired infections;

Hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) are a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. These include central line-associated bloodstream infections, catheter-associated urinary tract infections, and ventilator-associated pneumonia. The most common bacteria associated with HAIs include C. difficile, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Klebsiella, E. coli, Enterococcus, and Pseudomonas species. The growing prevalence of HAIs globally is the primary growth driver for the sterilization equipment market.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), up to 1.7 million hospitalized patients in the US annually acquire healthcare-associated infections (HCAIs) while being treated for other health issues, and more than 98,000 of these patients (one in 17) die due to HCAIs. In addition, 32% of all HAIs in the country are urinary tract infections, 22% are surgical-site infections, 15% are lung (pneumonia) infections, and 14% are bloodstream infections. According to the US Census Bureau, the number of individuals aged 65 and above was estimated at 52.3 million in 2019; this figure is expected to increase to 83.7 million by 2050. The rising geriatric population and the increasing incidence of chronic diseases will result in increased hospitalization rates, which, in turn, will increase the occurrence of HAIs. This is expected to boost the demand for sterilization products and services for the sterilization of medical instruments and other devices.
