Hospital supplies are the basic commodities required in the hospital to effectively examine, diagnose, and treat the disease or injury of patients. Sterilization equipment is used to kill all the microbes (sterilization) from objects, and is essential equipment to support normal hospital processes, such as sterilization of surgical instruments, laboratory reagents and so forth.

In 2021, GlobalData’s Market Model methodology determined that the leading player in the sterilization equipment market in the UK was Getinge followed by Steris, 3M, Tuttnauer USA, Belimed, Steelco, Munchener Medizin Mechanik, Azbil Telstar SLU, Skytron, Despatch Industries, Memmert GmbH + Co and Systec.

Based on its application, sterilization is of three types: physical, chemical and ultraviolet. Physical sterilizers use various forms of heat to sterilize objects, including steam or flame. Physical sterilizers include autoclaves and other high temperature sterilizers. This segment covers steam sterilizers and hot air ovens (dry heat). Chemical sterilizers are used for equipment that is sensitive to high temperatures, susceptible to corrosion (metal alloys) and for devices that might be damaged by irradiation (rubbers and plastics may become brittle after irradiation). The Chemical Sterilizers segment covers ethylene oxide, hydrogen peroxide and other chemical sterilizers. Chemical Sterilizers are used in the healthcare to chemically treat surgical instruments and medical supplies to ensure infectious agents are not transmitted to patients. Ultraviolet sterilizers use ultraviolet (UV) rays for sterilization. High-efficiency UV lamp systems are used for in-duct, coil mount and stand-alone systems to destroy airborne and surface bio-contaminants.

Following the widespread disruption resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic to the broader medical devices market during 2020 and 2021, the value of the sterilization equipment devices market within the UK was expected to be over $100m in 2021.
