According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Surface disinfectant Market is accounted for $3.20 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $5.79 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 10.4% during the forecast period. A surface disinfectant is an anti-microbial substance that is used to eliminate viruses and microorganisms from various surfaces. The industry is seeing a sharp increase in demand for surface disinfectants as a result of the prevalence of infectious diseases around the world. They aid in eradicating germs from surfaces such as toilets, floors, tiles, and furniture. In clinics and hospitals, where sanitation and cleanliness are crucial, there is a greater demand for surface disinfectants.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), HAIs cause about 1.7 million infections and 99,000 related deaths every year in America. Out of these, surgical site infections account 22%, urinary tract infections share for about 32%, blood stream infections around 14% and lung infections about 15% every year. Rising cases of HAIs will compel both patients and healthcare providers to focus more on disinfection, thus aiding growth.

Market Dynamics:


Growing number of stringent regulations for the use of surface disinfectants

The growing number of stringent rules focuses on the creation of appropriate policies for housekeeping services, putting a priority on proper housekeeping and sanitation. Therefore, thanks to such regulatory guidelines, the consistent use of surface disinfectants throughout healthcare settings will improve.


Increasing number of adverse effects of chemical disinfectants

The majority of chemical disinfectants that are currently on the market have hazardous qualities. For instance, sodium hypochlorite is an efficient treatment for blood-borne infections but is hazardous to cleaning staff and building occupants due to its extremely corrosive and respiratory irritating nature. It is also poisonous when released into the environment and damages numerous surfaces.


Rising healthcare expenditure and focus in emerging economies

Players in the sterilisation and disinfection sectors have a lot of opportunity in emerging economies like India, Brazil, and South Africa. Multinational infection control firms can profitably offshore their company operations to these countries thanks to the region's developing economies in APAC.


Incomplete knowledge regarding the proper use of surface disinfectants

Surface Disinfectants may be dangerous to both people and animals, and they may even cause environmental issues. Growth of the market could potentially be threatened by incomplete awareness of the proper application of surface disinfectants and the health risks connected to these products.

Covid-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic dramatically raised the demand for surface disinfection and cleaning procedures. Since the breakout in 2020, the virus has quickly infected millions of people around the world. Cleaning and disinfecting surfaces were two of the many steps being done to stop the spread of the deadly illness. This significantly raised the need for surface disinfectants. Due to the strong demand for disinfectants, numerous businesses had to raise their output.

The liquid segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The liquid segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth, due to the wide range of liquid applications in the industrial and domestic sectors for kitchen fixtures, glazed ceramic tile, windows, plastics, exterior surfaces of applications, vinyl, and glass. These surface cleaners are available in low viscosity liquid and/or gel forms. Chemicals that are poisonous, antimicrobial, or biocidal that can be used on contaminated surfaces are liquid disinfectants. Surface cleaners made of biomaterials are often applied as liquids.

The in-house disinfection segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The extrusion segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period, due to the significant increase in product demand for routine cleaning tasks and disinfecting the interiors of homes, particularly in the wake of the ongoing pandemic scenario, is responsible for its high market share.

Region with highest share:

North America is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to the increasing use of advanced surface disinfectants for sanitization, the number of strict restrictions for the use of surface disinfectants, and the requirement for infection control measures to reduce the incidence of hospital-acquired diseases. The main drivers of this regional industry are anticipated to be the rising incidence of nosocomial infections, a growing geriatric population, and changes in the health infrastructure.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to the expanding population, rising levels of consumer disposable income, and expanding industrialization. The majority of manufacturers' increasing adoption of new technologies is boosting the expansion of the regional market. Increasing interest along with investments by well-known industry players and incomplete collaborative efforts are accountable for regional growth.
