Category : Construction and Manufacturing | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC650


An autoclave is a strong heated container or a pressure chamber used in industrial applications to carry out processes that require elevated temperature and pressure different from the ambient air pressure. The market for industrial autoclaves has witnessed significant growth due to rising demand from various applications such as food processing, medical waste treatment, and manufacturing of composites. The major factors driving the growth of market includes continuous government initiatives in R&D across end-use industries globally.

Market Dynamics

The increase in use of autoclaves in industrial applications as well as increasing R&D investments by leading players has led to the growth of industrial autoclaves market globally. The stringent government regulations towards sanitation and proper disposal of medical waste have also played a major role in growth of industrial autoclaves in healthcare sector. The major challenges include high cost, regular maintenance of autoclaves used in healthcare sector, and low performance level of portable industrial autoclaves that restrain the growth of industrial autoclaves in the global market.

Market Classification and Overview

The industrial autoclaves market is bifurcated on the basis of type, technology, application, end use industry, and geography. The different types of industrial autoclaves include horizontal autoclave, vertical autoclave, and portable autoclave among others. Horizontal autoclave is the largest and most mature market as it caters to almost every type of application owing to its large capacity and highly automated process. Vertical autoclave is the fastest growing market owing to its ability to provide customized degree of automation based on application requirements. Based on technology, the market is segmented into dry heat autoclave, steam autoclave, chemical solution autoclave, and glass bead autoclave. Dry heat is the conventional and most preferred technology used in industrial autoclave. Steam autoclave is the fastest growing technology due to its ability to provide sterilization benefits with less energy and time consumption compared to dry heat autoclave technology. Based on application, the market is segmented into food processing, paints & coatings, vulcanizing, and medical waste treatment among others. Food processing is the largest application segment for industrial autoclaves market owing to the increasing demand for effective sterilization in food & beverage and medical sectors. Based on end use industry, the market is further segmented into food & beverage, healthcare, aerospace, electronics & semiconductors, agriculture and others. Healthcare accounts for majority of the global consumption of industrial autoclaves market and led the global market followed by food & beverage and aerospace segments. Food & beverage is the fastest growing market owing to increase in adoption of autoclaves that ensure hygiene, shelf-life testing and quality assurance of the materials used in food processing and packaging.

Regional Overview

The market for industrial autoclaves is segmented into regions such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle-East and Africa (MEA). Asia-Pacific was the major contributors to the growth of industrial autoclaves market in 2015. North America was the second biggest market followed by Europe. The market for industrial autoclaves in Asia-Pacific is further projected to witness highest growth in coming years owing to rapid migration of industrial and R&D sector from North America and Europe in the region. The North America market for industrial autoclaves is likely to grow at a significant rate owing to the increasing demand for autoclaves from healthcare industry of the region.
