Since the mid-twentieth century, UV radiation has been utilized for sterilization and disinfection. With developments in technology, particularly in UV bulbs, their extended lifespan (thousands of hours) and reduced size (e.g., UV LED versus classic UV bulbs) have widened the scope of applications. Water, air, fruits, vegetables, surgical utensils, tablet computers, toys, and a variety of surfaces are all disinfected with it. Ultraviolet disinfection employs short-wavelength ultraviolet light to kill bacteria by destroying their nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA. Microorganisms are rendered inactive as a result of the process and are unable to conduct essential biological tasks. Ultraviolet disinfection equipment disinfects water by putting LEDs, lamps, or bulbs in close proximity to it. The COVID-19 pandemic has had an influence on the UV disinfection equipment market, resulting in higher shipments of UV disinfection equipment and related components, as well as higher revenues. This is projected to expand in the future years as the need for surface disinfection rises owing to increased health concerns. The increasing usage of UV disinfection equipment for cleaning hospitals and medical institutions is one of the primary factors impacting the growth of the UV disinfection equipment market.

UV Disinfection Equipment Market COVID-19 Analysis
Duty sensors are used for permanent measurements in the UV Disinfection equipment’s. These sensors are designed for permanent measurements of the germicidal UV-irradiation of a source or at the position of the goods to be disinfected. COVID-19 has had an impact on the sector, particularly due labor shortages, financial stress, and disruptions to the supply chain. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many dislocations to the sensors industry. Thus, the manufacturers of UV disinfection equipment faced scarcity in the supply of sensors during the mid-term of 220. However, as the pandemic eased and mobility increased, supply activities picked up which will ease many of the problems faced during the crisis.
The UV disinfection equipment providers will experience a spike in demand due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. The impact of the COVID 19 pandemic is also expected to cause an increase in research and development on UV disinfection equipment to control the spread of the disease. Manufacturers of these systems will experience a rise in orders due to rising emphasis of surface treatment from industrial and commercial sectors. Particularly, the demand from the healthcare sector is expected to rise significantly due t the growing number of hospitalizations and due to the nature of the Corona virus. Companies overseeing new product launches will also act steadily owing to the opportunities in the market. The impact of both trends will prove operationally beneficial to suppliers. Moreover, the market is also likely to experience steady growth over the long run. However, there are delays in receiving raw materials from suppliers, primarily located in China and other Southeast Asian countries. These issues are taking a toll on manufacturers situated around the globe.
Supply chains for the UV disinfection equipment Market are also impacted. Multiple national lockdowns continue to slow or even temporarily stop the flow of raw materials and finished goods, disrupting manufacturing as a result. However, it has accelerated and magnified problems that already existed in the supply chain. Companies across the world are focusing on improving their supply chain strategies to become more resilient, collaborative, and networked with customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders. Moreover, companies will increase investment in supply chain technologies like AI and robotic process automation while retraining workers.
UV Disinfection Equipment Market Dynamics
The growth of the global UV Disinfection Equipment market is driven by various factors, such as Extensive use of UV disinfection equipment for disinfecting hospitals and medical facilities and Inactivation of harmful bacteria in water. The market's growth is likely to be hindered by the Low costs of conventional disinfectants. However, rising concerns for surface disinfection will bring opportunities to the market.
- Extensive use of UV disinfection equipment for disinfecting hospitals and medical facilities
Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAIs) are more common than most people realize with 1 in 25 people developing an infection directly related to their hospital stay, according to the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. HAIs cost billions of dollars to treat patients and cause nearly 100,000 deaths annually in the U.S. Thus, healthcare organizations and hospital administrators are taking notice of the effective and cost saving benefits of using UV light to disinfect hospitals with wall mounted units or mobile UVC disinfection systems. Moreover, UVC robots are becoming more popular in hospitals as they roam from room to room to disinfect in between patients and wall mounted units in restrooms can be set to automatically engage when the door closes. UV disinfection lamps are also used in the heating and cooling systems of hospitals to purify and disinfect the air in hospitals where people are more vulnerable to illness. A study published by the American Journal of Infection Control shows that UV light disinfection in hospitals eliminates up to 97.7% of harmful pathogens in operating rooms. In addition, UV disinfection equipment is known to kill superbugs such as MRSA, VRE, K pneumonia and C difficile and are helping hospitals to reduce the transmission of superbugs that linger in hospital rooms causing new infections. Quality UV sterilization lamps are proven to kill K pneumonia and VRE in seconds, MRSA in less than 5 minutes of exposure at 10 feet away and C difficile in less than 15 minutes at a 10 ft. distance. In addition, Ultraviolet disinfection equipment has powerful germicidal properties in the UVC range, specifically at 254nm wavelength. Moreover, with the anticipated rise in the number of hospitalizations due to the rising geriatric population, UV disinfection equipment will find increased use in hospitals and medical facilities to many viruses and bacteria.
- Scope for growth in developing nations
Surface disinfection in healthcare environment, food and beverage industries and also in domiciliary environment plays a central role on infection inhibition and control strategies adopted in response to transmissible disease outbreaks. The COVID-19 pandemic has called for the increased use of disinfectants worldwide in public facilities, transportation, hospitals, nursing homes, wastewater treatment facilities, and even common households to mitigate virus burden. UV light is proven to provide effective surface sterilization, eliminating even drug-resistant superbugs and novel corona virus with high efficacy. Thus, the COVID-19 pandemic has led to increased demand for disinfection and demand for all types of disinfection products, including UV disinfection equipment.
- Low costs of conventional disinfectants
Traditionally, the use of chlorine gas was the most common method of wastewater disinfection. Moreover, chlorine gas itself is relatively inexpensive although it is a highly toxic chemical. Shock chlorination is another popular treatment for disinfecting a well. The treatment commonly utilizes a sodium hypochlorite, strong chlorine bleach, solution within the water well and throughout the distribution piping. Improved hydrogen peroxide-based liquid surface disinfectants and a combination product containing peracetic acid and hydrogen peroxide are effective alternatives to disinfectants currently in widespread use. These products are cheaper than UV systems. However, as UV disinfection equipment is gaining recognition as a safer and more cost-effective way to disinfect for commercial, industrial, and municipal applications, the factor is expected to have low impact on the market growth over the forecast period.
