COVID-19 / Ukraine Crisis - Impact Analysis:

 The global spread of COVID-19, an unprecedented health risk, has affected the growth of the steam autoclaves market. The rapid transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus has resulted in trade and transportation restrictions, the closure of major economic sectors, and supply chain disruptions, all of which have hampered market expansion. Nevertheless, the use of steam autoclaves has increased significantly due to their efficacy in protecting against the SARS-CoV-2 virus during the ongoing pandemic. The World Health Organization (WHO) mandates that bio safety guidelines for handling COVID-19 in the bio-safety categories BSL-2 and BSL-3 are necessary to manage the virus safely. This is driving demand for steam autoclaves in medical facilities and academic institutions. Consequently, despite the pandemic's impact on the industry, the market value of steam autoclaves is expected to rise due to the increasing demand.

● The supply chain disruption due to the Russia-Ukraine war has impeded the Autoclave Market growth. The disruption has increased freight charges, created container shortages and lowered the availability of warehousing space. This has resulted in inflationary issues in the aftermarket. 

Key Takeaways:

● Fastest Growth of Asia Pacific Region

The Asia Pacific bench-top dental autoclaves market is estimated to expand at the fastest pace of 7.2% between 2024 and 2030. Improved healthcare infrastructure, consumer buying power, and patient awareness levels are some of the primary drivers projected to fuel regional market growth throughout the projection period. Moreover, rising demand for dental tourism in India and China is likely to increase the number of dental treatments, boosting demand for bench-top dental autoclaves.

● Rising Demand for Gravity Autoclaves

The gravity autoclave segment is expected to have the largest market share of 53.5% in 2023, growing at a 4.2% CAGR during the forecast period. Gravity autoclaves are preferred over vacuum-induced autoclaves due to their simplicity of construction and lack of reliance on peripheral systems to replace ambient air with steam, causing penetration into the instruments put within the autoclave for the sterilizing cycle. As a result, these types of autoclaves are becoming more economical and trustworthy, pushing the autoclaves market sales.

● Growing number of Infectious Patients

The autoclaves market is expected to experience rapid growth due to various factors such as the surge in hospital-acquired infections among patients, the rising prevalence of central sterile supply departments in healthcare facilities, and the growing necessity for bio-hazardous waste management. Additionally, there is a significant potential for market expansion due to the increasing adoption of autoclaves in the healthcare, dental, and pharmaceutical industries, coupled with the implementation of stringent government regulations.

● Increase in hospital-acquired infections (HAIs)

The increasing expansion of the medical industry is one of the primary factors impacting the market favorably. Furthermore, the demand for autoclaves has grown due to an increase in hospital-acquired infections (HAIs), which are required to sterilize medical equipment and prevent cross-transmission. The market is developing as a consequence of the increased need for efficient methods of dealing with bio-hazard waste.

● Lack of Trained Professionals may impede the market growth.

A substantial investment in autoclave setup and educated specialists who can handle temperature change according to requirements, making it difficult to run by small hospitals, clinics, and research institutions, is anticipated to slow market growth. The success of autoclave usage relies on skilled personnel who can manage the equipment and adhere to safety procedures for optimal performance. However, the lack of trained professionals can hinder the adoption and implementation of autoclaves, which may negatively impact market growth. It is crucial for organizations to invest in training programs to equip their workforce with the necessary expertise and proficiency to handle autoclaves.
