Using hydrogen peroxide gas plasma technology, plasma sterilizers can be used to sterilize a variety of medical equipment safely and effectively. Plasma sterilization is an oxidation process. The plasma initiates a chemical process that deactivates all microorganisms. In high temperatures, hydrogen peroxide molecules turn into free radicals, which are extremely unstable. In order to prevent infection, plasma sterilization was introduced to ensure that medical instruments are properly cleaned. Furthermore, the rising awareness of benefits associated with plasma sterilizers, the growth of hospital beds and intensive care units, the expansion of isolation facilities, and increasing exports of medical instruments are expected to enlarge the global plasma sterilizers market size during the forecast period. In accordance with statistics from the International Trade Center, medical equipment exports were valued at USD 153,157,380 thousands in 2021, an increase from USD 133,713,931 thousands the previous year.

Global Plasma Sterilizers Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rise In Prevalence Of Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs)- In a survey it was found that there were 107,600 patients affected by HAIs, and the majority were older than 50. Only 50% were male. A total of 25% of patients had HAIs, and 7 % had HAIs per 1000 patient-days.

Increasing cases of HAIs in hospitals and other healthcare settings have contributed to a surge in the demand for sterilization equipment as a result of COVID-19 spreading. Additionally, the increasing number of long-term hospitalizations in developing countries results in the emergence of various HAIs among patients, including infections of the bloodstream, urinary tract infections (UTIs), and ventilator-associated pneumonia. Therefore, to control the spread of infections in hospitals, the demand for plasma sterilizers is expected to increase over the forecast period.

  • Surge In Number of Surgical Procedures Performed Annually- It was observed that over 300 million major surgeries are performed in the world each year. Of these, approximately 45 million are performed in the United States, while 22 million are performed in Europe.  
  • Globally Increasing Exports of Medical Sterilizers-The International Trade Center (Trademap) reports that the value of medical sterilizers exported worldwide in 2020 was USD 1,220,335 thousands, an increase over USD 1,118,283 thousands in 2019.
  • Growing Global Healthcare Expenditures- According to World Bank data, global healthcare expenditures reached USD 9.83 billion in 2019, up from USD 9.7 billion in 2018.
  • Rising Initiatives in Research and Development Operations- According to the World Bank, there were 1,597 researchers per million people engaged in R&D activities as of 2018, an increase from 14,12 researchers per million in 2015. 


  • High Cost Associated With The Plasma Sterilizers
  • Availability Of Non Branded Product In The Market
  • Stringent Government Regulations On Approval Process

The global plasma sterilizers market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by source gas (hydrogen peroxide gas, oxygen gas, nitrogen gas and others. Among these segments, the hydrogen peroxide gas segment is anticipated to capture the largest market size in the global plasma sterilizers market. The increasing trade of hydrogen peroxide gas around the world is anticipated to drive segment growth during the forecast period. A report by the International Trade Center (Trademap) showed that the exported value of hydrogen peroxide gas in 2021 increased from USD 735,011 thousand in 2019 to USD 864,800 thousand. Moreover, to sterilize medical equipment, plasma sterilizers use a variety of gases, as well as provide numerous advantages over traditional sterilization methods.
