The Sterilants Market is expected to grow from US$ 2361.627 million in 2023 to US$ 4244.1 million by 2033. During the analysis period, this market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6%.

Industries and healthcare facilities must follow the sterilization process. In the sterilants market, effective and compatible sterilants or sporicidal agents have been demanded due to the increasing incidence of infection transmission through surgical instruments or contaminated surfaces in contact with human skin and tissues.

A major driver of the sterilant market is the growing demand for processed food that uses sterilants to preserve food and protect it from microorganisms. As medical equipment must be sterilized with sterilants such as peracetic acid, the growing healthcare industry also contributes to the growth of the global sterilant market.

Due to the increasing use of sterilants in agriculture to protect crops, the global sterilant market is expected to grow in the coming years. Furthermore, sterilants such as peracetic acid are environmentally friendly, making them preferred for sterilizing medical equipment; in addition, they leave no toxic residues after application, making them an opportunity for the future.

“The growing demand for sterilized environments (in terms of sterilized surgical instruments and equipment) and surging demand for compatible sterilants have driven opportunities for manufacturers. Strategic acquisitions and collaborations by the manufacturers are leading to high growth of the sterilants market in the coming years.” – says a lead analyst at Future Market Insights.
