Antiseptics and Disinfectants Market Growth 2022-2028: Growing Need to Control Infections in Hospital and Other Healthcare Settings Is a Key Factor Driving Market Growth

Antiseptics And Disinfectants Market size was USD 19.15 Billion in 2020 and is expected to register a revenue CAGR of 6.6% during the forecast period. Increasing use of antiseptics & disinfectants in hospitals and healthcare settings for topical and hard-surface applications, rising adoption of antiseptics & disinfectants among people amid COVID-19 pandemic, and growing use of antiseptics agents in dermatologic surgical procedures by healthcare providers are key factors expected to drive antiseptics & disinfectants market revenue growth over the forecast period. Antiseptics and disinfectants are being adopted for routine use to prevent hospital-acquired infections and have been of paramount importance in maintaining patient safety and lowering the rate of hospital-associated infections. Disinfectants are majorly used in home premises and farms, in water treatment, and food processing facilities; whereas, antiseptics are used in soaps, dairy sanitizers, and to treat local infections. Increasing demand for antiseptics & disinfectants is expected to continue to drive revenue growth of the antiseptics & disinfectants market going ahead.    

Disinfectants and antiseptics are chemical substances that are used to kill pathogenic microorganisms from animate and inanimate objects. Antiseptics are often used to reduce growth of disease-causing microorganisms from broken skin or wounds, and are most commonly used in healthcare settings to minimize the risk of infections during surgeries and other invasive procedures. Disinfectants are used to inactivate or destroy microorganisms from inert or hard surfaces to prevent transmission of infectious pathogens from surfaces to patients, healthcare workers, and visitors. Over the recent years, constant focus on research and development activities have led to development of novel and more enhanced antiseptics and disinfectants that are effective against multidrug resistant and multidrug susceptible strains of bacteria. This trend is expected to gain traction going ahead and boost revenue growth of the global antiseptics & disinfectants market.

Rapid progress in understanding the mode of action of certain disinfectants and antiseptics have contributed to development of infection control protocols that ensure usage of antiseptics and disinfectants according to the clinical requirement. Correct use of antiseptics and disinfectants has become crucial for prevention of healthcare associated infections among patients undergoing surgical procedures, have implanted devices, is on ventilator, and or is hospitalized. These key factors are expected to further drive demand for antiseptics and disinfectants and in turn, fuel revenue growth of the global antiseptics and disinfectants market. However, increasing cases of infections caused by contaminated antiseptics & disinfectants is expected to limit product adoption and is a major factor that can restrain antiseptics & disinfectants market growth to a certain extent over the forecast period.
