The global steam and hydrogen peroxide biological indicators market size reached US$ 629.98 Million in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 987.2 Million by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 7.80% during 2023-2028. The increasing number of hospitals, rising emphasis on infection control practices, and the growing number of surgical procedures represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Steam biological indicators (BIs) are test systems used to monitor the effectiveness of steam sterilization processes in healthcare facilities, laboratories, and other settings. They consist of a carrier material, such as filter paper or a strip, infused with a standardized population of heat-resistant bacterial spores like Bacillus stearothermophilus or Bacillus subtilis. On the other hand, hydrogen peroxide BIs are utilized to examine the efficiency of sterilization processes that utilize hydrogen peroxide as the sterilizing agent. They are generally used in low-temperature sterilization methods like hydrogen peroxide gas plasma sterilization or vaporized hydrogen peroxide (VHP) sterilization. They serve as a quality control measure to ensure that sterilization processes are consistently achieving the desired level of microbial inactivation.
Steam and Hydrogen Peroxide Biological Indicators Market Trends:
The increasing number of hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare facilities that require reliable sterilization methods to ensure patient safety represents one of the major factors driving the demand for steam and hydrogen peroxide BIs around the world. Moreover, the rising emphasis on infection control practices is catalyzing the demand for accurate and reliable biological indicators to validate sterilization processes. In addition, the growing usage of steam and hydrogen peroxide BIs in the pharmaceutical industry to maintain the sterility of the products, such as drugs, vaccines, and injectables, is influencing the market positively. Apart from this, healthcare authorities of numerous countries are implementing stringent regulations concerning the sterilization of devices in healthcare facilities worldwide. They are also focusing on maintaining patient safety and deterring the spread of infections. Furthermore, the increasing adoption of steam and hydrogen peroxide BIs in numerous research laboratories and diagnostic labs to avoid cross contamination and control sterile conditions is favoring the growth of the market. Besides this, there is a rise in the number of surgical procedures on account of the increasing prevalence of different chronic ailments. This, coupled with the growing aging population that is more susceptible to developing these diseases, is creating a positive outlook for the market. Additionally, the rising use of steam and hydrogen BIs in different medical equipment, such as reusable hemodialysis machines, respiratory care devices, dental instruments, infusion pumps, and surgical instruments, to prevent pathogen transfer is strengthening the growth of the market.
