The U.S. Surface Disinfectant Market size is expected to reach USD 1.8 billion by 2027, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The U.S. surface disinfectant market size was valued at USD 985 million in 2019 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9% from 2020 to 2027.

The high prevalence of healthcare-associated infections in the country is estimated to drive market growth. Hospitals are one of the prominent end-users of the market as they are the most vulnerable to infections caused by bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Regular and periodic disinfection of hospital surfaces, equipment, and PPE kits are of utmost priority and this acts as a major factor for the market growth. The market is further driven by the rising incidences of disease outbreaks, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, which has created a steep rise in the demand for surface disinfectants from hospitals.

The manufacturers in the country are inclined toward adopting various strategies including expansions, new product launches, joint ventures, agreements, acquisitions, and partnerships, among others, to gain a larger market share. Prominent industry stakeholders are focused on innovation and development of novel products and thus, are making significant investments in the R&D activities. Market participants have specific R&D centers committed for the development activities and are focusing on forming alliances with various research institutes and organizations to attain optimized results. Key players also maintain strong relationships with the international as well as local suppliers and distributors to maintain a consistent sales flow of their products throughout the year.

Chemicals segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 90% in 2019. The segment will retain the dominant position during the forecast years due to the increasing consumption of quaternary ammonium compounds along with alcohols, owing to its effectiveness against fungi and vegetative bacteria. Chemical disinfectants are primarily classified into two types, namely non-oxidizing and oxidizing disinfectants.

Liquids accounted for the largest revenue share of over 53% in 2019 and will expand further at a steady CAGR from 2020 to 2207, as they are strong, biocidal, or toxic antimicrobial chemicals that can be applied to contaminated surfaces. They are used for various applications, both household and industrial, including sealed marble countertops, sealed granite countertops, bathroom surfaces, exterior surfaces 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 products are predominantly utilized in the liquid form.

In-house surfaces application accounted for the largest revenue share of over 65% in 2019 and will grow further owing to the growing inclusion of surface disinfectants in several households, commercial, or 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 for in-house surfaces.

The industrial segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 33% in 2019 owing to growing product applications for cleaning and disinfection of industrial equipment and surfaces. The food and meat processing industries are some of the key end-users.

Growth in the production and expansion of industries in the U.S. is likely to drive the market in the near future. According to the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the industrial production and capacity utilization of the animal food processing industry in the U.S. grew from 102.9 to 134.9 units between 2016 and 2019. Meat processing includes poultry and livestock slaughter and is one of the prominent segments of the U.S. food and beverage industry, accounting for around 24% of its shipments in 2018. Regular disinfection and application of surface disinfectants in the animal processing industry is of key importance to the manufacturers to maintain final product quality, hygiene, and healthy manufacturing practices.

The commercial end-use segment includes applications in hotels, restaurants, cafeteria, bars, offices, and other commercial surfaces. The overall hotel industry of the U.S. is highly benefitted in the past years. However, the nationwide lockdown and temporary shutdown of office spaces due to the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to negatively influence the commercial end-use segment in 2020 and onwards. Furthermore, growing recognition of work-from-home benefits among the top commercial giants is likely to worsen the segment growth in the near future.
