Global Sterility Testing Market Research Report – Global Forecast Till 2023


Global Sterility Testing Market Research Report: Product Type (Instruments, Services), Test Type (Membrane Filtration, Direct Transfer) End-User (Pharmaceutical Companies, Hospitals & Clinics, Academic & Research Laboratories) – Global Forecast Till 2023


Sterility testing is carried out to confirm that products are free from microorganisms. It is imperative for medical devices, vaccines, pharmaceuticals, preparations, tissue materials, and other materials to be tested for sterility. Sterilization can be carried out in various ways including heat, chemicals, irradiation, high pressure, and filtration. Sterilization is similar to disinfection, sanitization, and pasteurization. In the sterilization process, microorganisms are either killed or are made inactive while biological agents are also eliminated. Most medical and surgical devices used in the pharmaceuticals industry are made of materials that are heat stable and therefore undergo heat, primarily steam, sterilization. However, increasingly, medical devices and instruments are being made of materials that require low-temperature sterilization.
The prevalence of chronic and highly communicable diseases such as AIDS is a major driver for market growth. The other factors responsible for market growth are innovation in drugs and government initiatives.
However, strict regulatory bodies and stringent regulatory policies are expected to restrain market growth during the forecast period.
The global sterility testing market has been segmented by product type, test type, and end user.
The global sterility testing market has been divided, by product type, into instrument, consumable, and services.
Based on test type, the global sterility testing market has been categorized as membrane filtration, direct transfer sterility testing, and product flush sterility testing.
On the basis of end user, the market has been classified as hospitals and clinics, pharmaceuticals industry, and academics and research laboratories
The global sterility testing market was valued at USD 540.1 million in 2017 and is expected to register a CAGR of 11.10% during the forecast period of 2018 to 2023.
