Global Surface Disinfectant Market: Overview
Surface disinfectants are chemical compound products used to deactivate or destroy microorganisms from environmental surfaces such as floors, chairs, bench tops, walls and ceilings. Depending upon their chemical composition, they can be segmented into several product types such as sodium hypochlorite, phenols, quaternary ammonium compounds (QACs), hydrogen peroxide, peracetic acid, biguanides, amphoterics, and aldehydes. While sodium hypochlorite- and phenol-based surface disinfectants are highly popular due to their lower price, high efficacy and low reactive nature, the forecast period is expected to witness a higher growth rate for quaternary ammonium compounds (QACs) and peracetic acid. Surface disinfectants are most commonly used in hospitals, clinics, and outpatient surgical centers, followed by restaurants and food chains, and households. Other usage sectors include commercial buildings and school etc. The most popular form of surface disinfectants is liquid, followed by sprays and wipes. This is largely owing to the ease of use, affordable pricing and easy availability of the products. North America, followed by Europe, holds the largest market share for surface disinfectants. However, the highest growth rate is likely to be witnessed in the Asia Pacific and the Middle East & Africa region. The market is primarily driven by the rising awareness about cleanliness and hygiene among populations, while held back by the increasing resistance developed by bacterias to surface disinfectants.
