Infection Control Market Expected to Reach $14B by 2017

The global infection control market is expected to grow approximately 6 percent annually from $10.5 billion in 2012 to $14 billion by 2017, according to a MarketsandMarkets report.

In addition, the report presents data on sterilization services market, including hospital sterilization services, and sterilization applications market, including medical devices and food.
