Infections are caused by pathogenic microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses, parasites or fungi which can spread directly or indirectly from one person to another, or from infected or non-sterilized surgical or medical devices that are used to treat a person, or from being in the infected environment of any healthcare facility. Over the past few years, healthcare facilities have reported an increasing prevalence of hospital acquired infections (HAIs) or nosocomial infections. HAIs result in additional healthcare expenditure for healthcare providers and for patients as well. It also affects the clinical outcomes of treatments or quality of care delivered to patients. Thus, an increase in HAIs is one of the key contributors to the growing demand for infection control products. Moreover, rising number of surgical procedures, increasing incidence of chronic diseases associated with growing geriatric population, and growing medical device reprocessing industry are also supporting the increasing demand for infection control products, thereby contributing to the market growth.
