Europe Surface Disinfectants Market Dynamics
- Increasing demand from healthcare facilities
With the increasing number of surgeries conducted in hospitals, there have been more and more disinfectants in surgical procedures to avoid infection and provide quality patient care and hygiene maintenance. The rising use of disinfectants to disinfect various surfaces such as reusable medical instruments like endoscopes, improper sterilization of medical equipment, and insufficient high-level disinfection may lead to severe and adverse effects on patients.
- Rise in occurrences of chronic disorders
The increasing population of old aged patients is expected to change healthcare services' delivery and working systems and create a greater market for surface disinfectants, as the old aged population is prone to acquiring hospital-acquired infections (HAIs). In addition, a rise in chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, and others, require an extended hospital stay. Hence, there is an increase in the number of cases of hospital-acquired infection with these stays.
- Rising product demand post the outbreak of Covid-19
The pandemic disrupted all healthcare systems worldwide due to the increasing influx of patients in hospitals. Several temporary hospitals were also set up to deal with an increasing disease incidence to control this. Hence, the spread of COVID-19 has caused a surge in demand for cleaning and disinfection products due to the growing awareness about safety, hygiene, and health. Therefore, increasing healthcare expenditure and the increase in the number of temporary hospitals are also driving the demand for surface disinfectants. In addition, factors such as the increasing demand for hospital beds and ICUs and the rising number of isolation facilities have significantly boosted the demand for surface disinfectants.
- Shifting consumers' preference toward the use of bio-based and nature-friendly disinfectants
Bio-based surface disinfectants are being widely preferred among consumers due to the increasing inclination toward using environment-friendly products and products that do not have toxic effects on health and the surroundings. Moreover, stringent regulations about the excessive use of chemicals have propelled the growth of bio-based disinfectants over the few years. Bio-based surface disinfectants are also highly effective. They help kill germs without leaving toxic chemical residue and eliminate the hazardous effects on the skin, eyes, and respiratory system. These benefits have attracted consumer attention to bio-based surface disinfectant products. In addition, the rising focus of surface disinfectant manufacturers on investing in research & development to develop new bio-based formulations and increasing the use of bio-based surface disinfectants as an alternative to chemical-based products is also driving the growth of the market.
- Rising awareness among a large percentage of the population
Government and non-governmental organizations such as the World Health Organization have also launched awareness programs and guidelines regarding spreading awareness among consumers about health and hygiene and the proper use of disinfectants in their respective places. All of this is expected to provide a host of opportunities for the growth and development of the Europe surface disinfectant market.
- Increasing focus on research and development (R&D) initiatives
The manufacturers in the surface disinfectant market are also upgrading their production facilities to meet the increased demand for disinfectants due to the novel coronavirus outbreak, apart from launching products with new formulations that effectively kill the germs and bacteria on various surfaces. Therefore, the increasing focus and development of research and development initiatives will create opportunities to tap upon the growth of the Europe surface disinfectant market.
- Lack of understanding regarding the use of standard disinfection practices by end-users
In environmental and healthcare facilities, cleaning is a complex infection prevention and control intervention requiring a multi-dimensional approach. This includes training, proper monitoring, regular audits and feedback, reminders and displaying SOPs in key areas. Training of cleaning staff should be on the policies and SOPs of the healthcare facility and national guidelines of the region.
- Availability of alternative products and technologies in the market
Some of the technologies for disinfection include UV light and steam. Steam with high temperature, low-moisture, or dry steam does not leave a residue or chemical film.
