The global Surface Disinfectant market size is expected to be worth around US$ 9.23 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Surface Disinfectant market size was valued at US$ 5.54 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 8.7% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.

Growth Factors

The market is driven by the increasing disease outbreak worldwide, coupled with the growing implementation of regulations in medical hygiene.

There is a spiraling demand for superior-quality surface disinfectant products due to the growing requirement to improve hygiene in ambulatory surgical centers, clinics, and hospitals to inhibit the spread of infections, including COVID-19, among staff and patients. The market is also driven by the growing number of laboratories and rising awareness among people about personal hygiene. Furthermore, various governments in North America and Europe have implemented stringent regulations concerning the use of chemical-based formulations and their discharge processes.

However, the market growth is likely to be restricted due to the toxicity of chemical-based products. Surface disinfectants consist of chemical substances, which when used properly as per guidelines yield excellent results. They help prevent the occurrence and transmission of diseases. However, the use of these products can pose a threat to humans as well as animals and lead to environmental hazards. Incomplete knowledge regarding the proper use and the health hazards associated with these products can pose a potential threat to industry growth.

However, the growing adoption of novel and advanced technologies by manufacturers for producing disinfectants with enhanced effectiveness and the shift in the trend toward biobased products are expected to promote the overall market growth globally over the foreseeable future.

In terms of the supply and demand equation on a global scale, manufacturers are inclined toward raw material procurement at competitive pricing. Raw material procurement involves engaging in long-term supply contracts with raw material suppliers. Some of the independent manufacturers hire third-party suppliers to sell their products. Disinfectant manufacturers are increasingly focused on product innovation and differentiation as they are steadily moving toward consolidation through mergers & acquisitions, joint ventures, and collaborative partnerships.

Report Highlights

The chemical product type segment dominated the market with a revenue share of 92.4% in 2020. Chemical-based disinfecting products are primarily classified into two types, namely non-oxidizing and oxidizing disinfectants. Non-oxidizing products comprise alcohols, aldehydes, amphoteric phenolics, and quaternary ammonium compounds (QACs).

The disinfectants are generally segmented into three categories namely, low level (Phenolic, QAC), intermediate level (alcohols, hypochlorites, iodine, iodophor), and high-level (hydrogen peroxide, glutaraldehyde, formaldehyde, ortho-phthalaldehyde, peracetic acid) disinfectants.

Hypochlorite is one of the most desired chlorine disinfectants, accessible in both liquid (sodium hypochlorite) and solid (sodium dichloroisocyanurate and calcium hypochlorite) forms. Hypochlorite can eradicate both enveloped and non-enveloped viruses when used at the right contact time and in accurate dilutions. Iodophores are used as both disinfectants and antiseptics and are considered to be effective against several types of microorganisms.

Biobased surface disinfectants are anticipated to be potential alternatives to chemical counterparts owing to their biodegradable, non-toxic, and environment-friendly characteristics. The FDA approval to use biobased products in formulations and commercialization of surface disinfectants is projected to create significant opportunities for market participants over the forecast period.

The liquid form segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 65.2% in 2020. Liquid surface disinfectants are commonly found in the form of gels or liquids with low viscosity. They are strong, biocidal, or toxic antimicrobial chemicals that can be applied to contaminated areas.

They are used for various applications, both household and industrial, including sealed marble countertops, sealed granite countertops, bathroom floor, exterior areas of appliances (such as toasters, stovetops, and microwaves), appliances with kitchen fixtures, enameled paint, glazed ceramic tile, stainless steel, windows, glass, vinyl, and plastic. Biobased surface disinfectants are predominantly utilized in liquid form.

Sodium hypochlorite is one of the prominent liquid disinfecting product forms for the livestock industry. It is an aqueous solution of 4-6% sodium hypochlorite, which is unaffected by water hardness and easily obtainable as bleach. It has a broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity and a low occurrence of toxicity and is inexpensive and fast-acting. Such liquid disinfectants are used to eliminate the risk of several diseases and treat livestock infections. However, they are used in feed processing as they are more diluted and less toxic to avoid any type of side effects.

The in-house application segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 68.1% in 2020. The in-house surface application includes household, commercial, and industrial in-house surfaces. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has laid down guidelines and recommendations for the cleaning and disinfection processes to be followed in-house. The process of disinfecting in-house surfaces does not necessarily clean or kill all germs but lowers the risk of spreading infections and diseases caused by bacteria, fungi, or viruses. This factor is likely to fuel the growth of the segment.

Furthermore, rising demand from households has fueled the production of disinfectants by major players, including Clorox and Lysol. The in-house application segment presents lucrative growth opportunities to bio-based surface disinfectants supported by the growing awareness among consumers regarding the adverse effects on the environment and health. However, the smaller availability of the product and the introductory phase of the bio-based products have restrained the sales and acceptance of the product at a wider scale.

The soaring demand for surface disinfectants for equipment cleaning from medical professionals and consumers is likely to drive the demand for the product in the form of wipes and sprays for instrument application. Increasing investments by the governments in R&D infrastructure and concerns regarding the dangers related to biohazards in laboratories have ramped the demand for disinfecting and cleaning laboratory equipment and instruments in medical facilities and industries, such as food processing and meat processing.

The commercial end-use segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 48.4% in 2020. The commercial end-use of these products includes applications in hotels, restaurants, cafeterias, bars, offices, and other commercial surfaces. The overall hotel industry is highly benefitted from the increasing consumer spending in the past years.

However, nationwide lockdown globally and the temporary shutdown of office spaces amid the COVID-19 pandemic are expected to negatively influence the growth of the commercial end-use segment in the years to come. In addition, growing recognition of work from home benefits among the top commercial giants is likely to worsen the segment growth in the near future.

Hospitals are one of the prominent end-users of the market as they are the most vulnerable to infections caused by disease-causing agents, such as bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Regular and periodic disinfection of hospitals, equipment, and PPE kits are of utmost priority and this acts as a major driver for the market. The market growth is further accelerated by the rising incidences of disease outbreaks, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, which has created a skyrocketing demand for surface disinfectants from hospitals.

North America accounted for the largest revenue share of almost 34.0% in 2020. In North America, the ever-evolving regulations, health and hygiene-related awareness, healthcare spending, and increased R&D activities among the raw material manufacturers, product formulators, and end-users have driven the surface disinfectant industry in the past few years. However, in 2020, the market witnessed steep growth owing to the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic across North America.

The demand for surface disinfectants is likely to soar owing to concerns related to the diseases and infections, especially during the COVID-19, as the pandemic continues to spread in the U.S. In addition to the practices such as the use of personal protective equipment and maintaining social distancing, hand sanitizing and floor disinfecting has become fundamental for the consumers. Extended support from the government for keeping the environment clean has also accelerated the consumption of surface disinfectants across end-users.

Additionally, the European market has witnessed a severe surge in demand amid the pandemic spread across the European countries. International players are expanding their manufacturing facilities in the region in order to meet the demand and serve the European healthcare facilities locally. R&D and technological advancement in terms of production technologies have further advanced the market in the region.
