Disinfectants are antimicrobials that are most frequently used to disinfect tiles, floors, washrooms, furniture, and instruments to destroy bacteria, dangerous germs, and other microorganisms found on multiple surfaces. In the coming years, the growing incidence of health-related infections, also known as hospital-acquired infections (HAI) or nosocomial infections contracted by patients during medical or surgical care, is likely to increase the market demand for surface disinfectants. The growth in public awareness of preventive healthcare and hygiene is also driving the demand for surface disinfectants. Therefore, over the past few years, the total number of surgical procedures has grown all over the world. Furthermore, the surge in the prevalence of operations performed is expected to boost the demand for surgical instruments to be cleaned and disinfected, further contributing to market development.
In 2019, the alcohol segment held the largest share of the market for surface disinfectants due to the extremely high alcohol consumption in laboratories and hospitals on hard surfaces. In laboratories and research centers, testing services are carried out. The high concentration of alcohol is less efficient in killing bacteria when disinfecting surfaces or using alcohol in sanitizers. 70% of alcohol is suitable for breaching a cell membrane that essentially attacks the entire cell and kills the bacteria. Ethyl alcohol and isopropyl alcohol have been used widely for several years as low-level disinfectants in many forms of healthcare settings.
It is estimated that the liquid form will hold the largest market share in terms of value and volume in 2019. Liquid surface disinfectants are antimicrobial agents that are biocidal or toxic that can be applied to infected surfaces. It is possible to use disinfectant fluids on clean floors, maintain hygiene in hospital settings, and skin. Disinfecting liquids from Dettol can kill germs on the skin and can also be used as a household surface or laundry disinfectant. It is a concentrated liquid that can be used in water and for cleaning purposes for a long time by diluting it.
Surface disinfection is projected to be the largest market shareholder in 2019, in terms of value. This is due to the high incidence of worldwide hospital-acquired diseases and the higher amount of disinfectants needed for these surfaces to be washed. There are different surface disinfection methods, such as routine disinfection, terminal disinfection, disinfection in the event of outbreaks, disinfection in the case of ordered contamination, and targeted disinfection of visibly contaminated surfaces.
In terms of revenue growth, the hospital segment will expand at a high CAGR and accounted for the largest market share by end-user in 2019. Owing to the rising occurrence of hospital-acquired infections and the increasing rate of hospitalization, the demand for surface disinfectants in hospitals over the next few years is projected to incline.
In terms of sales over the coming years, the North American region holds the leading market share. The increasing prevalence of nosocomial infections, a growing geriatric population, and changes in health infrastructure are expected to be the key factors driving this regional sector. Furthermore, the Asia Pacific region is expected to witness the fastest growing sector due to the growing population, rising levels of disposable consumer income, and growing industrialization. The growing adoption by most manufacturers of new technologies is driving the growth of the market in the region.
