The medical device cleaning market includes detergents and disinfectants used for cleaning and disinfection of medical instruments. The global medical device cleaning market was valued at USD 1.31 Billion in 2017 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.6%.
The growth of the market is mainly driven by the rising incidence of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs), rapidly growing geriatric population, rise in healthcare expenditure, and increasing focus on disinfection and sterilization in the healthcare sector. However, increased preference for single-use instruments due to concerns regarding the safety of reprocessed instruments is expected to restrain the growth of this market to a certain extent during the forecast period.
