Market Overview

The global surface disinfectant market was valued at USD 7,606 million in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 6,103 million by 2026, witnessing a CAGR of 2.10% during the forecast period.

The outbreak of COVID-19 has significantly impacted the growth of the surface disinfectant market. The usage of surface disinfectants that provide protection in healthcare facilities and safeguard personnel performing medical procedures that expose them to the virus is rising.​ As a result, several of the companies have now ramped up their production and are focusing on the development of new products. In April 2020, ITC launched its product "Savlon Surface Disinfectant Spray". Thus, the demand for surface disinfectants is expected to increase during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Other factors that are driving the market growth include the rising incidence of hospital-acquired infections, a growing geriatric population and subsequent growth in the prevalence of chronic diseases, and the increasing number of surgical procedures. As per the study titled "Healthcare-Associated Infections—A New Pathology in Medical Practice?", published in February 2020, about 50% of the hospital acquired infections occur in the intensive care unit. Surface disinfectants play a crucial role in preventing these infections. Hence, with the growing burden of HAI's, the market is expected to grow over the forecast period.

Scope of the Report

Disinfectants are referred to as antimicrobial agents that are applied to the surface of various non-living objects in order to destroy the microorganisms living on those objects. Practical implementation of surface disinfection routines can prevent or minimize infections and various adverse effects that are prevalent in the current healthcare system. The surface disinfectant market is segmented by type (quaternary ammonium compounds, hypochlorite, alcohols, aldehydes, and other surface disinfectants), formulation (liquids, wipes, and sprays), end user (hospitals and clinics, outpatient surgical centers, and other end users), and geography (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa, and South America). The report offers the value (in USD million) for the above segments.

Key Market Trends

Hypochlorite is Expected to Hold Significant Market Share in the Type Segment

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), studies suggest that coronaviruses may persist on surfaces for a few hours or up to several days. This may vary under different conditions, such as the type of surface, temperature, and humidity. Due to this, there has been an increased focus on the disinfection of surfaces to curb the transmission of the disease. This is, thereby, expected to accelerate the demand for hypochlorite surface disinfectants.

In March 2020, Chimcoplex received approval from the Ministry of Health, Romania, for the production of 1.25% sodium hypochlorite. This is further expected to support the surface disinfectant manufacturers for production.

Furthermore, hypochlorites are available in either solid or liquid form. The most predominant chlorine products in the United States are the aqueous solutions of 5.25% to 6.15% sodium hypochlorite, typically referred to as household bleach. These have an extensive spectrum of antimicrobial activity (i.e., virucidal, bactericidal, fungicidal, sporicidal, and mycobactericidal), are unaffected by hard water, are fast-acting and inexpensive, generally do not leave toxic residues, remove dried or fixed organisms as well as biofilms from surfaces, and have a significantly low incidence of serious toxicity.

The increasing population of elderly patients is expected to revolutionize the delivery of healthcare services and create a greater market for disinfectants, as they are more prone to acquiring HAIs (hospital-acquired infections). According to the World Population Ageing 2019 (United Nations, 2019), the elderly population continues to grow at an unprecedented rate. There were about 703 million people aged 65 years or above in the world in 2019. The number of these patients is projected to double (to reach 1.5 billion) by 2050. Hence, with the rising geriatric population, the demand for hypochlorite surface disinfectants is also expected to grow, thereby fueling the market growth.

Surface Disinfectant Market Key Trends

North America Dominates the Market and Expected to do Same in the Forecast Period

  • North America is expected to dominate the surface disinfectant market, owing to the outbreak of COVID-19 in this region which has tremendously increased the demand for surface disinfectants. In March 2020, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), United States released an expanded list of EPA-registered disinfectant products that have qualified for use against SARS-CoV-2, containing about 200 additional products and 40 new products.
  • The rise in chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, and others, require an extended hospital stay, hence, there is an increase in the number of cases of hospital-acquired infection in the country.​​ According to 2019 data by the American Health Association, there were approximately 36.5 million hospital admissions in 2017. Many of these procedures were due to chronic diseases and critical procedures, like heart bypass surgery. This number is increasing, and the rate of hospital-acquired infection is also rising, resulting in the growth of the market.​​
  • Furthermore, the number of surgeries has increased in the region over recent years. For instance, according to a report published by the ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgeons), more than 17.7 million surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures were executed in the United States in the year 2018. Therefore, owing to all these factors the region is expected to hold the largest market share in the global market during the forecast period.
