Global Reprocessed Medical Devices Market was valued at USD 823.7 Million in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at USD 1,756 Million by 2027 recording a CAGR of 16.6% during the forecast period 2021-2027. Reprocessing is an important part in life cycle of medical device in both developed and emerging economies globally. Reprocessing of medical devices is a process of disinfecting, cleaning, testing, sterilizing, packaging, labelling and remanufacturing of used, undamaged & expired medical devices to make it ready for the patient use at reduced and affordable cost. It’s been observed that the reprocessing of medical devices in the emerging countries is directed at decreasing hospital supply costs, which sometimes compromises with safety of the patients. Reprocessed medical devices are the devices which are refurbished and reuse again. The reprocessing of medical devices should follow an authentic process which furnish it fit for the use. In order to reprocess the device factors like life cycle, efficacy, and the potential risk to patient and components used for the manufacture of devices are taken into the consideration. Reprocessed Medical Device Market , according to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), are “devices that health care practitioners can reprocess and reuse on many patients.” Disinfection, proper cleaning, remanufacturing, quality control, disinfecting, packaging, and labelling of medical devices are all important elements to consider before putting them back into service. Any medical device reprocessing is a controlled activity that can only be done by third parties or hospitals. Third-party device reprocessors must meet the original criteria of manufactured single-use devices, according to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
In April 2017, The European Union passed a comprehensive new EU wide Medical Device Regulation (MDR).  For SUD (Single Used Devices) reprocesses, this is a major development as Europe now has in place a “manufacturer” regulatory path for reprocessed SUDs. In November 2011, Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Inc. medical devices company acquired SterilMed, Inc. US-based reprocessing & remanufacturing company of single-use medical devices
