The infection control market is valued at an estimated USD 51 billion in 2024 and is projected to reach USD 69.2 billion by 2029, at a CAGR of 6.3% during the forecast period. Recent key trends driving the infection control market include increased focus on antimicrobial surfaces, adoption of UV-C disinfection technology, and growth in demand for point-of-care testing. These trends are driven by heightened awareness of infection prevention, regulatory mandates, and the need for efficient and effective healthcare practices.

Opportunities in the infection control market include increasing adoption of advanced technologies, rising demand for infection prevention in emerging economies, and growing awareness of healthcare-associated infections. These opportunities can drive market growth by innovation, expanding market reach, and fostering greater investment in infection control solutions worldwide.
The endoscope reprocessing products segment is projected to witness the highest growth in the infection control market, by products, during the forecast period
The infection control market can be broadly classified into sterilization products & services, consumables & accessories, cleaning & disinfection products, protective barriers, and endoscope reprocessing products depending on the product. The endoscope reprocessing products segment is projected to witness the highest growth in the infection control market, by products, during the forecast period. The endoscope reprocessing products market is growing, commanding significant attention and dominance. This segment specializes in providing essential sterilization and disinfection solutions tailored specifically for endoscopic devices used in medical procedures. Its dominance is attributed to the increasing utilization of endoscopic procedures worldwide, coupled with stringent regulatory requirements mandating effective reprocessing to prevent Healthcare-Associated Infection. Consequently, the segment continues to experience robust growth due to its critical role in maintaining patient safety and infection prevention standards.
Hospitals and clinics segment, by end-user, has the highest market share
Hospitals and clinics represent the largest end user segment in the infection control market, commanding a significant share due to several key factors. As primary providers of healthcare services, hospitals and clinics prioritize infection control to ensure patient safety and maintain high standards of care. The prevalence of Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs) within these settings drives the demand for infection control products and services.
Additionally, the increasing number of hospitals and clinics globally, coupled with the rising volume of surgical procedures performed, further fuels market growth within this segment. Moreover, the growing geriatric population, which is more susceptible to chronic diseases and infections, contributes to the demand for infection control measures in healthcare facilities. Government initiatives aimed at improving infection prevention standards and regulations also drive market growth within hospitals and clinics, reinforcing their position as the primary end user segment in the infection control market.
Asia-Pacific market to witness the highest growth during the forecast period
In 2022, the Asia-Pacific region accounted for the highest growth rate in the infection control market, with countries like India and China standing out as areas with the highest growth potential.
