Global Surface Disinfectant Market: Drivers and Restraints


Increasing emphasis on sanitation, health, and safety is driving the surface disinfectant market across the globe. Tightening sanitation and health care regulations are promoting the usage of surface disinfectants in various industries. Growth in the health care sector is projected to propel the market for surface disinfectants in the next few years. This growth is largely ascribed to increasing number of surgical procedures conducted on aging population. Demand for hand sanitizers, ortho-phthalaldehyde (OPA), peracetic acid instrument disinfectants, and surface disinfectants is expected to rise significantly owing to increasing concerns about the health of the working population and patients in the health care sector. Among surface disinfectants, environment-friendly disinfectants are estimated to gain more popularity, led by rising concerns about environmental hazards caused by residual disinfectants on surfaces such as floors, walls, utensils, and medical equipment. Surface disinfectants are employed in major industries such as food processing, health care, and consumer goods.


Surface disinfection kills the germs present on surfaces as against sanitization, which deactivates or removes harmful germs. Ingredients such as quats are used in surface disinfectants to kill germs. However, ingredients such as quats could trigger asthma, allergies, and other health concerns in human beings. Hence, the residue of these disinfectants needs to be entirely removed from surfaces after disinfection. Furthermore, overuse of disinfectants can lead to the development of ‘superbugs’ that are resistant to antibiotics.


The global surface disinfectants market has potential to grow at a reasonable growth rate year over year. Increasing health care expenses, growing number of hospital-acquired infections, and rising surgical operations are likely to drive the surface disinfectants market during the forecast period from 2015 to 2023.
