NEW YORK, Dec. 2 Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Sterilization Technologies: The U.S. Market

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0166820/Sterilization-Technologies-The-US-Market.html

Details the North American sales of capital equipment to the sterilization industry in 2008, and forecasts the market's compound annual growth rate for 2009-2014.

Explains how the trends of value-added manufacturing and shorter hospital stays combined are holding capital equipment costs down and are leading to the use of more disposable than reusable items, and how this trend spells success for filtration sterilization.

Discusses how heat sterilization technologies are the tried-and-true methods and forecasts that purchases will rise markedly over the next five years.
