Future Market Insights Logo

The global surface disinfectant market is experiencing a huge surge in demand due to outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic. Rising number of patients getting hospitalized in emergency clinics and diagnostic centers has been fuelling the demand for surface disinfectants.

The surface disinfectant market is expected to follow a positive growth trajectory for the forecast period of 2021-2031. Panic purchasing of hand sanitizers and other disinfectants during lockdown led to uneven demand and increase in surface disinfectant market sales, evaluated ESOMAR-certified consulting firm Future Market Insights (FMI).

According to UNICEF, worldwide nearly 2 billion patients and healthcare workers are at higher risk of infection due to lack of water. Sanitization requirements and wastewater purification using disinfectants can offer required solution. This will increase the demand for surface disinfectants.

“Surging demand for surface disinfectants in hospitals and other healthcare systems to curb the risk of hospital acquired infections provides a positive environment for surface disinfectant market growth,” remarks the FMI analyst.
