The global sterilization monitoring market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 7.5% from 2017 to 2022 to reach USD 631.0 million by 2022. Factors such as technological advancements in sterilization monitoring products, rising focus on food sterilization, rising incidence of hospital-acquired infections, and increasing number of surgical procedures coupled with the rising geriatric population and chronic disease incidence are the major factors driving the growth of this market. On the other hand, lack of awareness on sterilization monitoring and dearth of skilled professionals are the major factors limiting the growth of this market.

On the basis of technology, the sterilization monitoring market is segmented into biological monitoring, chemical monitoring, and mechanical monitoring. In 2016, the biological monitoring segment is expected to account for the largest share of the market .Factors such as efficacy of biological indicators to monitor sterilization processes by killing the microorganisms directly as compared to the other sterilization monitoring techniques and increasing preference for BIs by various healthcare organizations to monitor sterilization processes are expected to drive the growth of this technology.

Based on the method of sterilization, the steam sterilization segment accounted for the largest share of the global sterilization monitoring market in 2016. The large share of this segment can be attributed to the non-toxic nature of steam and the low cost and efficiency offered by this method of sterilization in comparison to the other methods of sterilization. On the basis of end user, the hospitals segment accounted for the largest share of the global sterilization monitoring market in 2016. The rising prevalence of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) coupled with the increasing number of surgeries is supporting the growth of the hospitals segment.

Based on process, the sterilization monitoring market is categorized into pack monitoring, load monitoring, equipment/process monitoring, and exposure monitoring. The pack monitoring segment accounted for the largest share of the global sterilization monitoring market in 2016. Pack monitoring helps identify problems related to human errors and sterilizer malfunctions such as inadequate humidification and inadequate exposure time at the selected temperature; such advantages are driving the market growth in this segment.

On the basis of region, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World. North America is expected to command the largest share of the global sterilization monitoring market in 2017, followed by Europe. The sterilization monitoring market in North America is primarily driven by the growing demand for healthcare services in North America owing to an expected surge in the geriatric population and rising prevalence of chronic diseases in the coming years.

The global sterilization monitoring market is highly competitive, with a large number of global and local players. In 2016, the global sterilization monitoring market was dominated by 3M Company (U.S.), Getinge Group (Sweden), Cantel Medical Corp. (U.S.), and STERIS plc (U.S.). Product launches & showcases and acquisitions were the major strategies adopted by market players to achieve growth in the sterilization monitoring market.

UNICA Sugarcane Crush – 2017-18 Season 1H May: S&P Global Platts Pre-Report Survey of Analysts Results


UNICA Sugarcane Crush – 2017-18 Season 1H May: S&P Global Platts Pre-Report Survey of Analysts Results

Advance Estimates Suggest a 1H May Cane Crush of 36.15 Million MT in Brazil’s Center-South

– Analysts see Cane ATR at 119.06 kg/mt; Sugar Mix Likely at 45.87% –

PR Newswire

SAO PAULO, May 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ —  

Platts Survey of Analysts (1H May)

  • Cane crush: 36.15 million metric tons (mt)

  • Total recoverable sugar (ATR): 119.06 kilograms per metric ton (kg/mt)

  • Sugar production: 1.88 million metric tons (mt)

  • Total ethanol production: 1,369 million liters (ltrs)

  • Hydrous ethanol production: 795.86 million ltrs

  • Anhydrous ethanol production: 573.43 million ltrs

  • Sugar mix: 45.87%

  • Ethanol mix: 54.13%

The amount of sugarcane crushed in Center-South (CS) Brazil in the first half (1H) of May is expected to be 36.15 million mt, down 9% from the same period last year, but up 50% from the second half of April, an S&P Global Platts survey of analysts showed Wednesday.

About 1.2 days of crushing was lost to rain, the survey showed, while in the second half (2H) April roughly three days were lost.

Industry association UNICA is expected to release the official production figures for the key Center-South region in the coming days, possibly as early as Thursday. The 2017-18 sugarcane season began April 1 in the region, the largest sugarcane and sugar producer in the world.

If the expectations for the cane crush in 1H May are confirmed, the cumulative cane crushed so far this season would total 77.86 million mt, down 28% on the year.

Last season mills started crushing early as there was a lot of “cana bisada” (left over cane from the previous season) available. The drier-than-average weather also favored the pace of crushing last year. 

The range of analysts’ expectations for cane crushed in 1H May was 34.3 million-37.3 million mt, while the expectations for the total recoverable sugar (ATR) ranged from 115 to 122.7 kg/mt of cane.

The survey’s average for the ATR was 119.06 kg/mt, down 4.3% from a year earlier, but up 4.7% from 2H April.
The percentage of cane crushed directed to produce sugar is expected to come in at 45.87%, up from 42.91% a year earlier. The balance, or 54.13%, was used for ethanol production.

Sugar production is expected to be approximately 1.88 million mt, down 9% on the year, while ethanol output is expected to have fallen 16% on the year to 1.37 billion liters. Of the total, hydrous ethanol is likely to have accounted for nearly 58%, or 796 million liters, and anhydrous for the balance.

In Parana state, one of the sugarcane producing regions of CS Brazil, the amount of cane crushed in 1H May fell 6% year on year to 1.95 million mt, according to local industry association Alcopar. The ATR in the state was 130.1 kg/mt of cane, up 12.84 kg/mt from 2H April and up from 128.51 kg/mt in 1H May 2016.

Total fuel and industrial ethanol sales (anhydrous plus hydrous) in CS Brazil in 1H May to the domestic market are expected to be roughly 900 million liters, down 9% on the year, according to a forecast by Platts Kingsman, an agricultural analysis unit of S&P Global Platts.

Hydrous fuel ethanol is used in flex-fuel vehicles, while anhydrous is mixed with gasoline under a 27% mandate.
