Surface Disinfectant is a broad bactericidal spectrum, strong bactericidal ability, fast action speed, excellent stability. It is low in toxicity, corrosiveness, low irritation, easily soluble in water, safe to humans and animals, and cause low environmental pollution. Surface Disinfectant means using chemicals to kill germs on surfaces. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs, but by killing germs on a surface after cleaning, it can further lower the risk of spreading infection.
Global Surface Disinfectant Market predictable to grow with a momentous rate during the forecast period, 2020-2027. The growing prevalence of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) worldwide and stringent regulations for the use of surface disinfectants in diagnostic laboratories, hospitals, pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies, and research laboratories will propel the global surface disinfectant market in the future periods. Additionally, the rising geriatric population and subsequent growth in the prevalence of chronic diseases would trigger the global surface disinfectant market size in the upcoming years. Moreover, the growing incidents of infectious and human-transmitted diseases, especially within healthcare workers, will demand the global surface disinfectant in the next few years.
Disinfectants should be selected based on environment-friendly disinfectants with broad-spectrum, high-efficiency, fast-acting, long-acting, non-toxic, odorless, non-irritating, non-residual, and no secondary pollution. Furthermore, due to the occurrence of the COVID-19 virus, a huge demand surge is witnessed for surface disinfectants in Asian and European countries. In addition, various government initiatives to raise awareness regarding the need for cleanliness and disinfection are vital factors estimated to expand the global surface disinfectant industry in the next few years. A recent coronavirus outbreak is highlighting the need for healthcare facility cleanliness and disinfection.
Moreover, the surge in disposable income coupled with a growing focus on child health will boost the global surface disinfectant market in the future time span. As the coronavirus continues to spread, with no vaccine available, disinfection is of the utmost importance, which helps in reducing the risk of contamination of surfaces, door handles, tables, or chairs.
The provision of safe water, sanitation, and hygienic conditions are essential to protect human health during all infectious disease outbreaks, including the COVID-19 outbreak. Ensuring consistent and properly applied WASH and waste management practices in homes, communities, marketplaces, health care facilities, and schools will further help to prevent human-to-human transmission of the COVID-19 virus. With growing concerns over the spread of the virus across the globe, there is a huge demand for surface disinfectant products.
Based on composition, the global Surface Disinfectant Market classified into Quaternary Ammonium Compounds, Alcohols, Chlorine Compounds, Hydrogen Peroxide, Peracetic Acid, and Others. The peracetic acid segment predicted to gain a major share in the market by 2027 due to less toxicity, cost-effectiveness, and environmentally friendly nature due to which it is used in the food industry.
The alcohol segment will propel attributable to the surge in the adoption of alcohol on hard surfaces in hospitals and laboratories.
Based on type, the global Surface Disinfectant Market segregated into Liquid, Sprays, and Wipes. The Wipes segment projected to grow at a higher rate during the forecast period. It is primarily attributed to wipes surface disinfectant, which is a huge demand in medical device and instrument disinfection, wherein the use of liquids or sprays is unfeasible.
The Liquid will be the fastest-growing segment owing to its availability at low cost in emerging and underdeveloped countries.
Based on application, the global Surface Disinfectant Market classified into In-house Surfaces, Instrument Disinfection, and Others. The In-house Surfaces segment estimated to dominate by 2027 due to the high prevalence of hospital-acquired infections across the globe and the growing huge demand of surface disinfectants required to clean disinfect in-house surfaces.
The Instrument Disinfection will grow by the rise in demand for a surface disinfectant for the cleaning of medical instruments.
Based on end-user, the global Surface Disinfectant Market categorized into Hospital Settings, Diagnostic Laboratories, Pharmaceutical & Biotechnology Companies, and Research Labs. Hospital Settings segment accounted for a higher share in 2019 due to the increase in hospital reimbursements for surgeries performed in hospitals, rising prevalence of infections in hospitals, and growing patient volume in these healthcare settings.
Based on geography, the global Surface Disinfectant Market segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa. North America estimated to occupy the lion’s market share by 2027, owing to the high prevalence of HAIs coupled with the strict presence of stringent infection control regulations in the region. Additionally, recently COVID-19 virus outbreak, the USA regulates the strict use of surface disinfection.
The Asia Pacific will be the fastest-growing market on account of the increasing disposable income and rising consumer awareness regarding the need for hygiene and cleanliness coupled with financial aids by various governments.
Companies such as 3M Company, Cantel Medical, The Clorox Company, Ecolab, Johnson & Johnson, Procter & Gamble, Reckitt Benckiser Group PLC, Diversey, Inc., Steris Corporation, CarroLLClean Metrex Research, LLC, Whiteley Corporation and Gojo Industries, Inc. are the key players in the Global Surface Disinfectant Market.
