Code: BMIRE00026867 | Pages: 100 | Industry: Medical Device | Date: Oct 2022 | Type: Global

The market crossed US$ 4.38 billion in 2022 and is expected to hit US$ 7.46 billion by 2030, recording a CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period

The liquid form segment is growing mainly attributed to a wide scope of application

Liquid offers a wide scope of application in the industrial and household sectors for kitchen fixtures, glazed ceramic tile, windows, plastics, glass, and others. These surface disinfectants can be liquid and gel with minimum viscosity. Liquid disinfectants are toxic antimicrobial or biocidal chemicals utilized on infected surfaces. Biobased surface disinfectants are commonly used in liquid form. The liquid is sufficient in controlling diseases induced due to bacteria and viruses by destroying them effectively. It is a multi-purpose liquid and can be diluted in water to maintain the hygiene of the body and home.

Within the report, the market is segmented into type, composition, application, end-users, and geography. Based on type, the global surface disinfectant market is segmented into liquids, wipes, and sprays. Based on composition, the market is divided into alcohols, chlorine compounds, quaternary ammonium compounds, hydrogen peroxide, and others. Based on application, the global surface disinfectant market is segmented into in-house surfaces, instrument disinfection, and others. By end-users, market segmentation is hospital settings, diagnostic laboratories, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, and research laboratories. Geographically, the market is sub-segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South & Central America, and Middle East & Africa.

Stringent regulatory norms boosted the product demand

Surface disinfectants have different chemical substances, which, when used as per guidelines, deliver magnificent results. Under FIFRA, any substance intended to prevent, destroy, repel, or mitigate any pest, including microorganisms, must be registered before sale or distribution. FIFRA also directs product users to follow each product's labeling directions explicitly. Recently, the industry marked a shift toward using biodegradable surface disinfectants to prevent chemical-related toxicity. The raw materials demanded biodegradable surface disinfectants are more reasonable and easily available. This aid in preventing the transmission and occurrence of various diseases. However, these can harm humans and animals and lead to environmental problems.

Rising prevalence of gram-negative bacterial infections

Gram-negative bacterial infections, such as urinary tract infections (UTI), pneumonia, bloodstream infections, wound or surgical site infections, and meningitis, are commonly acquired by patients during their hospital stays. These infections are generally known as hospital-acquired infections (HAI). Infections such as UTI and pneumonia are common in patients admitted to intensive care units. According to the US National Healthcare Safety Network, 30% of HAIs are caused by gram-negative bacteria, ~45% are due to UTI, and ~47% are caused by ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP). The prevalence of infectious diseases caused by gram-negative bacteria is rapidly increasing. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the COVID-19 pandemic increased HAI cases in 2020. Hospital admissions have grown globally, which has increased the risk of VAP as a secondary infection for COVID-19 patients. This has fueled demand for surface disinfectants, aiding the market significantly.

Recent strategic developments in the surface disinfectant market

The surface disinfectant market has undergone several significant developments, and a few of these have been mentioned below:
