Surface Disinfectant Market Introduction & Overview

Disinfectants can be defined as antimicrobial agents that are designed to destroy or inactivate microorganisms from inert surfaces. Depending on the ability to immobilize or kill, some or all microorganisms, disinfectants can be classified as low-, intermediate- or high-level. Disinfectants differ from other antimicrobial agents, in the aspect that disinfectants are used solely for objects rather than body or tissues,unlike antibiotics & antiseptics. This form of antimicrobial agents works by interfering with the metabolism of the microbes or destroying the cell wall of the same. Chemical disinfection of instruments, as well as surfaces, is a crucial aspect in infection control, as it assists in interrupting transmission of harmful pathogens from an infected individual to a susceptible host. Several factors are considered while selecting a disinfectant, such as hazards posed by their use, factors affecting the efficacy of germicides, and timing & method of chemical disinfection, among others.

The growth of the global surface disinfectantmarketcan be attributed to several factors, such as growing incidences of infectious diseases; rising population that has directly contributed to the increasing number of healthcare facilities; and increasing prevalence of Hospital-Acquired Infections (HAIs) among others. Moreover, the existence of stringent regulations, which makes the application of disinfectant mandatory to curb the spread of infections, coupled with advancements in the field of surface disinfectant formulations, have been significant in propelling the growth of the market. However, the past four to five months have witnessed extensive adoption of surface disinfectants, owing to the extremely rapid spread of SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2). The virus,SARS-CoV-2, is responsible for causing Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19), has been categorized as an infectious disease.  COVID-19 has rapidly transformed into a global pandemic, that currently has spread across 210 countries & territories around the globe. The current scenario has played a pivotal role in significantly contributing to the adoption of surface disinfectant products, which in turn has provided the global surface disinfectant market with a substantial boost.
