The industry for surface disinfectants is likely to gain momentum driven by rising adoption across laboratories and in the food sector to clean worktops and production areas. Medical equipment surfaces tend to get contaminated by infectious agents and pose as a medium for person-to-person transmission. There are also increasing concerns related to microbial contamination in the food and general consumer arenas.

Disinfectants are increasingly used for the elimination of pathogens present on the surfaces and exhibit certain protective effects. They are highly preferred over water disinfection and aerosol/dry-fogging methods to offer enhanced sanitation. The rise in the number of sanitary facilities along with the expanding need for food hygiene has also amplified the demand for surface disinfectants.

Taking note of these trends, it is thereby reported that the global surface disinfectants market size will exceed USD 8.5 billion in yearly remuneration by 2026.

Below is a gist of the foremost trends expected to influence the industry share for surface disinfectants.

Instrument safety from quaternary ammonium compounds

Preference for quaternary ammonium compounds is projected to expand with growing usage in ultrasonic cleaning. This type of chemical surface disinfectant marks tremendous presence across various sectors, mainly medical equipment as it is best suited for instrument immersion during the allotted time to kill the microorganisms. Furthermore, the synergistic mechanism possessed by these compounds helps to break down the lipoprotein complexes in the cell membrane of microorganisms in the presence of alcohols.

Wiping technique to offer higher efficiency

Surface disinfectant wipes are likely to see higher adoption in the coming years with increasing preference in comparison to the spraying methods. Although sprayed disinfection has attained higher popularity, uncovered surfaces and the development of undesired aerosols are some of its limitations. Hence the wipe method is extensively deployed to offer optimal surface disinfection.

U.S. to see a higher footprint

The demand for surface disinfectants in North America is pegged to grow exponentially owing to the surging incidences of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had estimated that HAIs are a leading cause of death in the U.S. and their costs on the healthcare system in the country are valued at $30bn-$45bn per year. The expansion of the food industry in the continent has also surged the requirement for proper health and hygiene.

Speaking of which, global surface disinfectant suppliers are actively turning to inorganic strategies, including mergers, partnerships, capacity expansions, and acquisitions to strengthen their market foothold.

Key players operating in the surface disinfectants industry are 3M Group, Reckitt Benckiser Group llc, Proctor & Gamble, The Clorox Company, STERIS Plc., Ecolab, Lanxess AG, Neogen Corp., Dupont, Cantel Medical, Johnson & Johnson, Diversey, Inc., CarroLLClean, Metrex Research, LLC and Whiteley Corporation.
