The stethoscope hygiene devices market is growing due to the rising demand for stethoscope use due to increasing geriatric population. The need for sophisticated stethoscopes has increased due to the rise in the number of elderly people seeking primary diagnoses for a variety of chronic illnesses.

According to the CDC, it is known that adults over 65 have a higher risk of getting serious health issues like heart disease, the flu, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, and other disorders.

The World Ageing 2019 report estimates that there were around 703 million adults worldwide in 2019 who were 65 years of age or older. In 2050, this number is projected to double to 1.5 billion. This important factor will lead to increased use of the device and can further lead to need to maintain proper stethoscope hygiene, which will help the market in receiving a boost.

This market is constrained by a knowledge gap about stethoscope disinfection and a lack of experience in this area. This knowledge gap provides a potential to avenue to be improved upon to contribute towards maintaining proper stethoscope hygiene by creating awareness about it.

These factors will prove to be important, as rise in use of stethoscopes will lead to the increased demand and production of stethoscope hygiene devices, and hence provide lucrative outlook for growth for the market.
