Market Overview

The South America Single-Use Medical Device (SUD) reprocessing market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 4.5% over the forecast period. Rising clinical urgency to minimize the generation of medical waste in healthcare settings and hospitals is a among the key factors driving the market growth.

The use of reprocessed SUDs also results in reduction of costs associated with special handling and waste management of devices. Healthcare facilities not only save 50% for every reprocessed SUD they purchase and spend less on medical disposal, but they also save money when the original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) lower their prices to compete with third-party reprocessors, thus lowering the overall cost of healthcare.

Along with cost reduction, it also results in environmental sustainability. SUD reprocessing is one of the top healthcare supply chain strategies used to reduce costs and optimize resources. The aforementioned factors are anticipated to contribute towards the development of industry in the immediate future. However, the lack of dedicated SUD reprocessing facilities in emerging markets is currently a huge opportunity for this market, while the unauthorized overuse of reprocessed SUDs in emerging markets is currently the major challenge faced by this market. 

Scope of the report

Single-use device (SUD) reprocessing includes cleaning, disinfection, and sterilization, as well as testing and restoration of the technical and functional safety of the used device. Reprocessing of SUDs makes it possible for hospitals to maintain patient care quality while saving substantial amounts of money.
