Medical devices are instruments or apparatus used to diagnose and treat any medical condition. These devices can either be meant for single use or can be reusable. So, devices meant for one-time use only are called single use medical devices but some of them can be used multiple times with proper reprocessing. This reprocessing can either be done by a third party or inside the hospital. Single use device reprocessing is gaining popularity and wide acceptance because of the reduction in cost and wastes. It enables the hospitals to eventually use the same device multiple times leading to huge cost savings. SUDs are generally used more in developed countries because it is easier to maintain control over such risky procedures in a developed country.


The reprocessing process consists of cleaning, disinfecting, inspecting, sterilizing and then repackaging the device for its reuse. Extreme care is taken during all these processes. The major users of this process are the large hospitals in developed countries who are able to do all this while following all the proper protocols.

Market Dynamics

Single use medical device reprocessing market is still in its nascent stage with only a few major players dominating the entire market. Hospitals all across the globe are feeling the cost pressures due to increase in the cost of medical devices. Hence, the use of SUDs is constantly on the rise. The drivers leading the way forward are: -
--> Low prices of reprocessed devices
--> Low medical waste generated
--> Eco-friendly products
--> Low barriers to entry
However, the market is still in its nascent phase and faces hurdles due to the following factors: -
--> Low margins for manufacturers
--> No check on quality of reprocessed devices in developing countries
