Surface Disinfectant Market Trends




  • Increased consumer hygiene awareness is driving the market growth




The primary element influencing the market for surface disinfectants is consumer hygiene awareness. Hygiene is the practise of keeping one's body and clothing clean in order to maintain general health and wellbeing. The surface disinfectant market can deliver better customer service by being more aware of personal hygiene. For instance, 98.7% of respondents in a survey conducted by Frontiers media in August 2020, a publisher of scientific journals with headquarters in Switzerland, agreed that COVID-19 is a deadly, contagious disease that spreads through human contact. They were familiar with COVID-19's concomitant symptoms and typical causes. The two preventative practices that respondents used the most frequently were hand washing and social withdrawal, which were followed by avoiding travel to affected regions or countries and using face masks. Respondents demonstrated great readiness for awareness-based COVID-19 prevention and control. The market CAGR for surface disinfectants will grow as a result of this hygiene awareness.


Furthermore, hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) are on the rise, which is driving up the demand for surface disinfectants. Despite not being known at the time of admission, patients contract hospital-acquired infections throughout their stay in the hospital. Ventilator-related pneumonia, catheter-associated infections, and other infections are caused by intrusive devices and medical equipment. These disinfectants are frequently used in healthcare institutions, which has greatly reduced the prevalence of (HAIs). Government mandates that healthcare institutions give cleaning top priority would increase demand and serve as a market driver.


Another major trend in the market for surface disinfectants is technological advancement. Major players are eliminating all dangerous microbes from surfaces using cutting-edge technologies like pulsed UV light. The use of pulsed UV light technology to disinfect a variety of surfaces used in scientific settings has the potential. Broad-spectrum radiation is applied in the form of rapid, powerful bursts that deliver intense radiation instantly, which produces noticeably better microbiological decontamination than traditional UV systems. For instance, the Indian-based home appliance business Voltas introduced a new line of UVC-based surface disinfection products in June 2020. These choices include of the UV Cart System, HandHeld, RUKS CoiloTron, and RUKS GermiTron. RUKS CoiloTron cleans mould, fungus, and bacteria from cooling coils and drain pans.


Thus, driving the surface disinfectant market revenue.
