Hospital Disinfectant Products Market: Overview

The market size for hospital disinfectant products was USD 13.5 billion in 2021, and it is predicted that throughout the projection period, it would expand at a CAGR of 6.0 percent. The market is expanding due to several causes, including a high prevalence of chronic diseases, an increase in hospital-acquired infections (HAIs), an increase in surgical operations, an increase in the incidence of infectious diseases, and the most recent COVID-19 epidemic. The usage of surgical disinfectants in hospitals, clinics, and other medical institutions has significantly increased in response to the strong need for adequate sanitization during COVID-19. The primary factors driving the global market are an increase in demand for toilet cleaners, floor disinfectants, and instrument decontaminants, along with rising hospital-associated infections, an increase in operations, an increase in the incidence of contagious diseases, growing awareness, and strict rules and regulations regarding the safety of patients, doctors, and other staff members.

Additionally, HAIs are a substantial concern for patients and healthcare personnel worldwide. The need for surgical equipment disinfection is expanding to reduce the risk of microbial contamination as hospitalizations and HAIs rise globally. According to WHO estimates, HCAIs affect hundreds of millions worldwide yearly. Seven patients in affluent nations and ten patients in underdeveloped countries out of every 100 hospitalized patients have at least one HAI. With the increased risk of these infections, more healthcare institutions will likely need hospital surgical disinfectants to prevent the spread of infection. Hospitals typically use disinfectant solutions to prevent contamination and reduce the incidence of HAIs. Over the anticipated term, this is anticipated to accelerate market expansion.

Furthermore, among the major drivers anticipated to fuel the market expansion over the projected period are the increased frequency of surgeries carried out in hospitals and the increased knowledge of infections and illnesses. In the United States, where the average person can anticipate having seven surgical procedures throughout her lifetime, at least 150,000 patients lose their lives to surgery each year, and 1.5 million experience serious complications. One of the fundamental criteria in healthcare facilities for surgeries is surgical disinfection solutions. These products are more frequently used in hospitals and other medical settings to lower the risk of infection during surgery and other procedures because they prevent or slow down the growth of germs on the skin. As a result, such events are anticipated to drive the market during the forecast period.

Hospital Disinfectant Products Market: COVID-19 Impact

Additionally, the recent COVID-19 pandemic epidemic has significantly increased the demand for surgical disinfectants and is predicted to expand to new regions in the coming months. Major industry manufacturers are working on surgical disinfectants for efficient hospitals against COVID-19. The usage of surgical disinfectants in hospitals, clinics, and other medical institutions has significantly increased in response to the strong need for adequate sanitization during COVID-19. In March 2020, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published an updated list of disinfectants that have been approved for use against SARS-CoV-2 and surgical solutions. Hospitals are adopting preventive measures due to the outbreak of COVID-19 since doing so will help limit the disease's development. As a result, market participants may have possibilities during the forecast due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hospital Disinfectant Products Market: Drivers

Demand for Hospital Disinfectant Products to Increase as Number Of Surgeries Rises

Increased surgical and minimally invasive procedures fuel the market for hospital disinfection products. The demand for medical equipment is growing due to more procedures requiring the most advanced sterilizers for cleaning. In hospitals, sanitizers and lotions are convenient items to carry. Hand sanitizers function best where hands come into contact with pathogens, such as in medical clinics. These elements are anticipated to increase the need for hospital hygiene and disinfection solutions. During the projection period, it is anticipated that a steady rise in consumer awareness and increased purchasing power will fuel the market for hospital disinfectant solutions.

With Increase Number of Hospital Acquired Infection, Demand for Hospital Disinfectant to Rise

Hospital-acquired/associated infections (HAI), also known as nosocomial infections, are a leading cause of death worldwide. HAI affects 9–37% of patients admitted to intensive care units (ICUs) and 5–15% of hospitalized patients in developed nations. In recent research, hospital-acquired/associated infections (HAI) prevalence rates in hospitals across Europe have been reported to range from 4.6% to 9.3%. Additionally, surgical site infections happen after 2 out of every 100 surgeries, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). It is anticipated that more HAIs will occur since hospital disinfectants are efficient at cleaning medical equipment and preventing the transmission of HAIs.

Hospital Disinfectant Products Market: Restraints

Growing Number of Adverse Effects of Chemical Disinfectants to Restrict Market’s Growth

These disinfectants are made with chemicals that are bad for humans and the environment, including hypochlorite, peroxides, and acetic acid. Since sodium hypochlorite is caustic, explosive, and can cause burns, handling, storing, and transporting it can be challenging and expensive. Users had a high frequency of chronic diseases with substantial health effects, according to data from the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). In addition, excessive exposure to hydrogen peroxide can irritate the skin and lead to rashes. Halogenated phenol, which can easily penetrate cellular membranes and deposit undesirable proteins along the route, is a protoplasmic toxin. These are some of the causes, then, that are limiting the market's expansion for antiseptics and disinfectants.

Hospital Disinfectant Products Market: Segment Overview

Liquid Disinfectant to Dominate Market due to Its Low Cost

According to estimates, liquid disinfectants comprise the largest portion of the hospital disinfectant goods and services market. With its usefulness in high-volume disinfection procedures and popularity as a preferred form for routine disinfection, this category enjoys a sizable market share. Increased sales of liquid disinfectants are largely attributed to their simplicity of use, low cost, and long-standing consumer demand (hospitals). The availability of liquid surface disinfectants will drive the market for these products in developing economies for diverse purposes, a wide range of compositions & formulations, and low cost.

With Increased Awareness, Surface Disinfectants to Dominate Market

The surface disinfectant category held the greatest share. Surface disinfection stops any infection or virus from sticking to a surface, potentially endangering human health. Global need for surface disinfectants has increased, particularly in light of the most recent pandemic, Covid-19. Benzalkonium chloride is used in surface disinfection sprays and solutions to protect surfaces from germs and viruses. Additionally, healthcare groups are promoting surface disinfection and making it a requirement. In addition, the availability of enticing and stimulating liquid surface disinfectant products has increased product demand from residential end-users, which is predicted to further fuel market growth throughout the research period.

Hospital Disinfectant Products Market: Regional Landscape

Asia Pacific to Acquire Major Market Share due to Increase Number of Surgeries

With a major market share, the Asia Pacific is in the lead. This can be linked to elements that encourage hospital surgical disinfectants, such as the high prevalence of hospital-acquired illnesses and advancements in healthcare infrastructure. Furthermore, it is projected that regulatory regulations to supply safe and high-quality healthcare services will drive market expansion over the forecast period. For instance, the Chinese regulatory body, the National Medical Products Administration (NMPA), declared that it would expedite the registration of medical disinfectants that adhere to the EU, Japan, and US requirements. Therefore, these factors are anticipated throughout the projected period to fuel market expansion.

The region's rising incidence of illnesses and procedures could further fuel market expansion. This region's market is also driven by the highest number of operations and surgeries in the area. Asian nations, including China, India, and Thailand, are seeing increased medical tourism.

An expanded list of United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered disinfection products that have complied with the standards for use against severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) was issued in March 2020. This list included around 200 extra products and 40 new products. Furthermore, chronic illnesses, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, and others, necessitate prolonged hospital stays and surgery. According to data from the American Health Association, approximately 33,356,853 people were admitted to hospitals in 2022. These admissions were brought on by crucial treatments like heart bypass surgery and chronic illnesses. Therefore, it is anticipated that the rising number of hospital admissions will increase the demand for hospital disinfectants and expand the regional market.
