Global Surface Disinfectant Market is projected to reach a value of over USD 1.4 billion by 2027

Surface Disinfectant Market: Summary

The Global Surface Disinfectant Market is projected to reach a value of over USD 1.4 billion by 2027 at a CAGR of around 7.3%.

Surface Disinfectant is chemical substances that are applied to objects and surfaces to sanitize and kill microbes. It is used to disinfect food preparation surfaces, such as countertops and cutting boards, owing to raw foods (meats, fish, and poultry) that contain pathogens includes E. coli, Salmonella and Listeria. Hydrogen Peroxide, Quaternary Ammonium, Hypochlorite and others are the type of surface disinfectants used to disinfect frequently touched surfaces in households, hospital-acquired infections and others to reduce the transmission of infectious illnesses, such as COVID-19, colds, flu and others.

Surface Disinfectant Market: Drivers & Challenges

Market Driver:

  • High prevalence of Hospital-acquired Infections (HAI)

Hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) are nosocomial infections that occur during a patient’s stay at hospitals and related facilities but are not observed at the time of admission. These infections include central line-associated bloodstream infections, catheter-associated urinary tract infections, ventilator-associated pneumonia, surgical site infections, hospital-acquired pneumonia, and Clostridium difficile infections. The incidence of HAIs is mainly dependent on the patient’s immune status, infection control practices, and the prevalence of various infectious agents around the healthcare facility. Other factors include longer hospital stays, immunosuppression, older age, and stays in intensive care units. The continued use of different types of disinfectants for hospital surface cleaning and medical devices disinfection will be a must in order to decrease the incidence rates of these diseases further. Which is further driving the global surface disinfectant market

Market Challenges:

  • Development of Alternative Technologies

The number of new technologies is developed and tested as an alternative to the current methods of surface disinfection, which are manual in nature. Cold atmospheric pressure plasma, electrolyzed water (Hypochlorous Acid), self-disinfecting, surfaces, cold air atmospheric plasma and No-touch decontamination such as aerosol, vaporized hydrogen peroxide, and pulsed xenon UV light systems are the major alternative technologies that is used instead of surface disinfectant. Each technology has its advantages over another technology which is likely to hamper the market growth up to a certain extent.
