Increase in demand of steam autoclaves for managing hazardous biomedical waste will drive the business growth during the forecast timeframe. The U.S. central government had passed The Medical Waste Tracking Act in 1988, setting the standards for government regulation of medical wastes and to handle the disposal of medical wastes in the coastal areas of New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Connecticut and Puerto Rico, owing to numerous medical and household waste throughout various coastal areas. The rise in need to treat and manage biomedical waste will boost the steam autoclaves market growth in near future.

Nosocomial infection or hospital-acquired infection (HAI) has witnessed a gradual increase in the past couple of years. The infection is majorly caused by virus, bacteria or fungal pathogen and slowly becoming the paramount cause of mortality and morbidity across the globe, causing massive economic burden. Increase in prevalence of nosocomial infections in the Europe region will result in growing demand and adoption rate of steam autoclaves, fuelling the business growth in forthcoming years.

The availability and development of growing array of disposable items for use in the health professions have accelerated in recent years. One of the recent infection control areas of discussion includes dental burs. Dental burs are a significant tool used for procedures such as tooth contouring, restorative filling procedures and endodontic procedures. From an infection control point of view, the risk of patient–to patient cross–infection can be eliminated, resulting in decline in the use of steam autoclaves, impeding the growth of steam autoclaves market.
