Surface Disinfectant is chemical substances that are applied to objects and surfaces to sanitize and kills microbes. Because of raw foods (meats, fish and poultry) that contain pathogens such as E-coli, Salmonella and Listeria, it is used to disinfect food preparation surfaces, such as countertops and cutting boards. Hydrogen Peroxide, Quaternary Ammonium, Hypochlorite, and others are the type of surface disinfectants used to disinfect frequently touched surfaces in households, hospital-acquired infections to reduce the transmission of infectious illnesses, such as COVID-19, colds, flu, and others. In hospitals & clinics, surface disinfectants have a higher demand as there have been strict guidelines for hygiene and sanitation in such places. In particular, the activity of infection prevention is an integral part of it and often consists of several chemicals such as alcohol, phenol, chlorhexidine, peracetic acid, ammonium, etc.
High prevalence of HAIs
Hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) are nosocomial infections that occur and are not observed at the time of admission during a patient's stay at hospitals and related facilities. Such infections include central line-associated bloodstream infections, surgical site infections, urinary tract infections associated with catheters, hospital-acquired pneumonia, ventilator-associated pneumonia, and Clostridium difficile. The incidence of HAIs depends primarily on the immune status of the patient, the practises of infection control and the prevalence of different infectious agents around the health care facility. Due to the direct correlation between geriatric populations, the occurrence of chronic diseases, the increase in hospitalization rates, and the increase in the risk of the spread of HAIs, the demand for surface disinfectants will increase in this segment population.
COVID-19 Impact on Global Surface Disinfectants Market
COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused due to a novel coronavirus that was most recently discovered. In healthcare systems worldwide, the pandemic has caused the disruption, with hospitals being overwhelmed due to the increasing influx of patients. To cope with a rising incidence of diseases, temporary hospitals are also being set up. Therefore, because of the growing awareness of hygiene, health, and safety, the spread of COVID-19 has spurred an increase in the demand for cleaning and disinfection products. Some of the major factors driving the demand and uptake of antiseptics and disinfectants are increasing healthcare expenditure and increasing the number of temporary hospitals.
At a CAGR of 3.0 percent from 2019 to 2025, the global market for surface disinfectants is projected to reach USD 3.6 billion by 2025. The growing prevalence of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) and the presence of stringent regulations for the use of surface disinfectants are some of the major factors driving this market's growth. Over the forecast period, growing chronic diseases are projected to help boost the market growth. Demand for surface disinfectants is also driven by increasing consumer awareness about hygiene and preventive healthcare. The unprecedented rise in demand for products as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic worldwide.
The designs of certain types of reusable medical devices have become more complex, particularly endoscopes. Proper cleaning, high-level disinfection, or sterilization can be hindered. Improper medical device sterilization and inadequate high-level disinfection (HLD) may have severe effects on patients. Thus, it remains challenging to choose a disinfection method in some cases, often after considering the risk categories for patients. The standard techniques of disinfection and sterilization work are not adequate to ensure a 100 percent guarantee of safe patient care. It is imperative to enforce best practices, including maintenance of equipment and routine audits, with at least annual competence testing of employees who use reprocessing equipment. But if regulatory adherence is lax, there will likely be more outbreaks. Furthermore, better approaches to cleaning and high-level disinfection efficacy assessments are needed.
North America accounted for the largest market share of more than 34 percent. It will maintain its leading position over the forecast years due to increasing cases of hospital-acquired infections and strict government regulations to limit the spread of such infections concerning the use of disinfectants. Several initiatives are undertaken based on ease of use, efficiency against relevant pathogens, costs, and toxicity. To set guidelines for the determination of preferable products for use in the healthcare industry, particularly childcare, is estimated to fuel regional market growth.
The Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing regional market from 2019 to 2025, owing to the growing population, rising disposable income for consumers, and rapid urbanization and industrialization. The increasing adoption of new technologies by most producers is also driving the growth of the regional market. In addition, developing countries, including China, India, Korea, and Japan, contribute significantly to market growth by implementing cohesive government strategies.
