Disinfectants: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Growing emphasis on health, safety and sanitation is fuelling demand for disinfectants across industries such as food processing, healthcare and consumer. Industrial cleaning, maintenance and sanitation are gaining in prominence against a backdrop of tightening sanitation and public health regulations. In the food processing industry, concerns over contamination are encouraging food plant sanitation and thus demand for disinfectants to sanitize food preparation surfaces. In the healthcare sector, demand for disinfectants is driven by the implementation of intensive infection control programs to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. Periodic disinfection helps in reducing infections, including reverse outbreak of diseases in hospitals and health clinics. In the consumer sector, growing awareness over household sanitation is driving growth.

Growth in the healthcare sector, in the coming years, is forecast to be driven by the rising number of surgical procedures performed on the aging population, vulnerable to numerous health conditions. With safety of patients and healthcare workers gaining in importance, demand for hand sanitizers, ortho-phthalaldehyde (OPA), peracetic acid instrument disinfectants, and surface disinfectants, is poised to grow strong, especially in the field of surgery. Disinfectants are extensively used for disinfecting surgical gloves, examination gloves, surgical instruments and surfaces among others. Growth in the market is also driven by the increase in the spread of infectious diseases. The last decade witnessed the outbreak of H1N1 virus and avian influenza. The year 2014 witnessed the outbreak of the Ebola, which further raised the emphasis on hand and surface disinfection measures.

Environment friendly disinfectants are expected to grow in popularity, given the rising concerns over the hazards caused by residual disinfectants on surfaces like floors, walls, utensils, medical equipment. The tightening regulatory ecosystem governing the production and use of disinfectants is leading manufacturers of household cleaning agents to develop eco-friendly, and green products. Rise in voluntary environmental stewardship among consumers and increased corporate environmental responsibility are principle factors responsible for the rapidly shifting preference for eco-friendly products. Manufacturers are therefore investing resources in developing innovative eco-friendly cleaning products.
