Hospital-acquired Infection (HAI) infection is a major factor contributing to the increase in demand for medical disinfectant wipes

Healthcare-Acquired Infections (HAIs) or Healthcare-Associated Infections are infections patients received from treatment at a healthcare facility, like a hospital, or a healthcare professional, like a doctor or nurse. Along with central line-associated bloodstream infections, infections and ventilator-associated pneumonia, Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are the most common type of HAI. About 75% of UTIs are linked to using catheters, specifically if the catheter is used for a long time. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates HAIs account for an evaluated 1.7 million infections and 99,000 associated deaths yearly in American hospitals. Of these infections: 32% of all healthcare-acquired conditions are UTIs, 22% are surgical site infections, 15% are pneumonia, 14% are bloodstream infections

The product launches and investments by several players will drive the medical disinfectant wipes market

In July 2021, LSI, a disinfectant wipe solutions provider, launched exceptional disinfectant wipes with several innovative features. It launched NUGEN EHP Disinfectant Wipes, based on hydrogen peroxide, an active detailed under the EPA’s Safer Choice program. NUGEN EHP Disinfectant Wipes kill 13 microorganisms, including Norovirus, in 3 minutes and SARS-CoV-2 in 1 minute. Additionally, in June 20201, Kinnos in the American Professionals in Infection Control (APIC) 2021 Conference introduced its new healthcare-focused flagship product, Highlight for Bleach Wipes. The highlight for Bleach Wipes colors the disinfecting wipes that hospitals worldwide depend upon for keeping surfaces clean, enabling users to imagine disinfection coverage instantly for the first time. The highlight for Bleach Wipes quantifiably enhances disinfection technique, taking the guesswork out of a previously invisible process and giving confidence to staff and patients alike. Such developments are likely to boost the demand for wipes.
