Hard Surface Disinfectants Market By Disinfectant Type (Quaternary Ammonium Compounds, Phenolics, Bleach-Sodium Hypochlorite, Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide, Botanicals, Silver Dihydrogen Citrate, Iodophors, Chlorine Compounds), By Formulation (Liquids, Wipes, Sprays), By Application (Hospitals, Clinical Laboratories, Pharmaceutical Companies, Others) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

Industry Outlook

The currently available techniques applied in surface disinfection are consistently improving to adapt to any environment. Conventional disinfection activities mainly aim to supplement healthcare facilities and improve healthcare system efficiency. As the overall emphasis on disinfection and maintaining sterile environment is advancing, the use of surfaces with inherent antimicrobial properties is being considered as a potential alternative to disinfection. However, the possible high cost of these items and distant availability have made the use of disinfectants imperative. The global market for hard surface disinfectants shall undergo stable growth through 2026. Growing incidence of healthcare-associated infections, high burden of managing such diseases, and evolving regulations for validation of disinfectants are the key drivers of this market. On the other hand, increasing risk of development of resistant microorganisms, and improper adherence to the recommended decontamination methods restrain the growth of this market. Considering the future outlook, the global hard surface disinfectants market is witnessing perpetual product innovation, with introduction of new products that have broader activity spectrum, less dwelling time and competitive prices.
