The Asia-Pacific single-use medical device reprocessing market is segmented by Device Type (Class I Devices and Class II Devices), and Geography
The lowering of the overall cost of healthcare through the reprocessing of single-use devices is the primary factor driving this market. The process has been rationalized and legislated in Japan. In India, 80% of healthcare is provided by the private sector. There are certain policies being used by the private sector, which helps diminish the financial burden substantially and reduces the overall economic burden through reduced medical bills generated for the patient. In the past decade, increased use of reprocessed single-use devices has been observed in the emerging markets, which are likely to drive the growth of the single-use medical device reprocessing market. Other major factors responsible are the rising significance of medical waste minimization and positive effects on environmental sustainability.
The FDA defines reusable medical devices as those “devices that health care providers can reprocess and reuse on multiple patients.” The poor regulations regarding the SUD reprocessing in emerging markets is the major obstacle for the growth of SUD reprocessing market in the developing countries. According to Seth GS Medical College in Mumbai, India, the absence of protection from the legal liabilities and litigations for reusing disposable items due to lack of guidelines and norms, prevents the reuse of the devices marked as SUDs. Further, the practice of SUDs reprocessing is unregulated due to the scarcity of guidance from the regulatory authorities in India.
Single-use device (SUD) reprocessing includes cleaning, disinfection, and sterilization. It helps hospitals to maintain patient care quality while saving substantial amounts of money. With the high rate of privatization in hospitals of India, there is a rise in the guidelines being considered for reprocessed SUDs, helping in the high growth of this market.

The market has been segmented, based on device type, into Class I & Class II devices. Class II devices are expected to record the highest CAGR, owing to the increasing number of cardiac interventions and the consequent economic load demand for assessing SUDs’ reuse. Japan does not have any regulations for the reprocessing of single-use medical devices. Therefore, regulatory authorities, such as the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW) (Japan), in collaboration with the FDA are focusing on generating new medical device reprocessing guidelines for Japan.
