Global Surface Disinfectant Market to Grow at 6.7% During 2022-2027, Impelled by Rising Prevalence of Hospital-Acquired Infections

Published on Nov 25, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Surface Disinfectant Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global surface disinfectant market reached a value of US$ 5.1 Billion in 2021. Surface disinfectants refer to antimicrobials that are widely utilized to sanitize and kill harmful germs, bacteria and other microorganisms. They are increasingly used to treat surfaces of medical equipment, walls, floors, and tabletops. They are effective in minimizing the risks of spreading bacteria while maintaining proper hygiene across the residential, industrial and commercial segments. Apart from this, these disinfectants are especially employed to offer protection against pathogens across healthcare facilities.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Surface Disinfectant Market Trends:

The global market is majorly driven by the rising prevalence of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs). There has been a considerable rise in the uptake of surface disinfectants due to the implementation of strict guidelines for hygiene and sanitation across the healthcare segment. Moreover, the rapid outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) across the globe has led to an increase in the usage of surface disinfectants for sterilizing medical equipment and facilities. The market is further driven by the growing product applications in non-healthcare settings, including homes, schools, workspaces and public places, in an attempt to prevent the spread of the pandemic. Apart from this, an enhanced focus on sustainable development and the introduction of environment-friendly product variants that are cost-effective and non-toxic are also creating a positive outlook for the market. Some of the other factors contributing to the market growth include the rising awareness regarding the importance of sanitizing surfaces and extensive research and development (R&D) activities. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.7% during 2022-2027.
