Surface disinfectants are used in the process of disinfection to kill or inactivate microorganisms in order to prevent their transmission. It is especially important in healthcare settings due to the high prevalence of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). Surface disinfectants are available in various formulations such as liquids, wipes, or sprays. To follow regulatory compliance, the routine disinfection of facilities is followed by many industries, especially the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industry. Moreover, surface disinfectants are also gaining more popularity in households and residential settings owing to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Rising awareness about sanitization, health, and safety; increasing prevalence of chronic diseases; increasing number of surgeries in healthcare facilities; increasing number of health clubs and gyms; expanding tourism industry globally; and the recent outbreak of infectious diseases are the major factors driving the overall surface disinfectants market. Furthermore, introducing novel disinfection products and untapped markets in emerging economies provides significant growth opportunities for companies operating in the surface disinfectants market. Increasing standard of living, rising economy, healthcare awareness, medical tourism, growth in disposable income, and the prevalence of infectious diseases are some of the major factors garnering the attention of key players in surface disinfectants market towards developing economies.

However, lack of understanding to use standard disinfection practices by end-users, availability of alternative products and technologies, and environmental & health hazards associated with the use of disinfectants are expected to hamper the growth of this market to a certain degree.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Surface Disinfectants Market

As the COVID-19 pandemic spread across the world, there was a great need to curb the spread of this virus. It led to a significant increase in the demand for surface disinfectants. To combat the COVID-19 pandemic, disinfectants were increasingly demanded across public places, transportation, hospitals, nursing homes, wastewater treatment plants, and ordinary households. Companies operating in the surface disinfectants market had to ramp up production to meet the high demand. For instance, in March 2020, GOJO Industries, Inc. (U.S.) increased the production of PURELL brand products, including surface sanitizer and disinfectant sprays, at two Ohio manufacturing facilities and a manufacturing facility in France.
