The Bio Decontamination Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 178.3 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 18.% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

The Bio Decontamination Market is a process that removes microorganisms harmful to human health. The use of bio decontamination equipment and consumables is increasing across various industries such as pharmaceutical, healthcare, food, and others to eliminate risks of contamination.

Market Overview:

Bio decontamination refers to the process of eliminating pathogens and microorganisms from facilities, equipment and areas using biological methods. It utilizes various sterilization technologies such as vaporized hydrogen peroxide, chlorine dioxide gas and dry mist hydrogen peroxide to decontaminate areas without using harsh chemicals that can damage equipment and facilities. Equipment used for bio decontamination includes chamber systems, equipment such as handheld portable devices and consumables in the form of non-toxic decontaminating solutions.

Market key trends:

One of the key trends driving the bio decontamination market growth is the increasing incidence of hospital-acquired infections. Hospital-acquired infections also known as nosocomial infections are those infections which patients acquire during the process of care in a hospital or a healthcare facility. Infections like MRSA, VRE and C. difficile are on the rise demanding better sterilization measures. Bio decontamination equipment and consumables are helpful in eliminating such healthcare associated pathogens. Furthermore, stringent regulations regarding terminal sterilization and growing number of drug discovery and biotechnology activities are also fueling the demand for bio decontamination globally.
