With the introduction of technically enhanced instruments in the market like endoscopes and analyzers, there has been an increased need for advanced sterilizers that are compatible with the same. This has brought about a drastic shift from steam sterilizers to low temperature sterilizers with its wide range of technologies such as ethylene oxide (ETO), vaporized hydrogen peroxide (VHP), hydrogen peroxide gas plasma, and ozone gas-based sterilization.
U.S. and Europe are the major markets for sterilization, as a majority of the market leaders are based in these regions.
