Owing to the fact that cleaning and sanitation are vital for safety in the healthcare industries, the global market for disinfectants is driven by increased focus on hygiene and growing concerns over the spread of infectious diseases both at home and in public places. Rising demands in the food, beverage and healthcare industries is driving the global disinfectors market. Disinfectant chemicals are also becoming more common as an ingredient in various conventional and industrial cleaning products.
Disinfectors are used for destroying pathogens for controlling infection.
Disinfection is an essential procedure that is performed for infection control in households and in healthcare facilities such as clinics, hospitals, elder care institutes and laboratories, using disinfectors and other infection control equipment such as sterilizers. Disinfectors are used to disinfect various medical instruments such as bedpans, surgical instruments, urine bottles and endoscopes. Disinfection is the process of destroying pathogenic organisms or rendering them inert. Hence, it ensures the hygiene condition of medical appliances that are used while providing medical services to people by healthcare workers.
The global disinfectant market can be categorized on the basis of disinfectors by product type, and disinfectors by applications. Based on disinfectors by product type, the global market for disinfectors is divided into washer, flusher and endoscope reprocessor. The washer is further divided into a single chamber (single door and double door) and multi chamber. On the basis of application, the global disinfectors market is classified into elder care, hospitals and clinics, and pharmaceuticals and life sciences.
The rise in number of healthcare infrastructure in developing countries is one of the major trends in the disinfectors market. The large population in developing countries has opened up a large patient pool which eventually gives a rise in disposable income. The favorable economic conditions in most of the developing countries are propelling the infrastructural growth by establishing more medical care facilities and hospitals. Liquid products and aerosol are the most commonly used surface decontaminators, though a significant number of hospitals are employing UV disinfection systems as an surplus measure. Hence, another trend in the disinfectors market is the use of ultraviolet (UV) disinfectors as UV radiation inactivates micro-organisms by destroying the nucleic acids in viruses and bacteria.
Increasing demand from hospitals to disinfect surfaces and patient rooms efficiently and effectively against a wide range of viruses and bacteria has driven manufacturers to create widely applicable disinfection products that work more quickly. Surgeries require wide usage of various medical instruments such as forceps, scissors and complex surgical instruments that are in constant contact with the patient’s body. If these instruments are not disinfected properly, the patient is exposed to surgical site infections (SSI). Hence, the disinfectors market is expected to increase owing to the rising number of surgeries performed across the world.
One of the major challenges in disinfectors market is the growing trend of medical institutions and clinics to use disposable medical devices that do not need sterilization or disinfection.
Owing to the rise in number of chronic diseases, epidemic diseases such as H1N1 and aging population, North America dominates the disinfectors market followed by Europe.. Some of the major competitors in the global disinfectors market are Advanced Sterilization Products Division Ethicon US, LLC, Getinge AB, OLYMPUS CORPORATION and STERIS Corporation. Other prominent competitors in the market include ACTAVIS, American Biotech Labs, LLC, Amrep Inc, CareFusion Corporation, CCP Industries , Bio-Cide International, Inc., BIOTECHMEDICS US., Cantel Medical, Colgate-Palmolive Company., Swisher International, Inc., Diversey Inc.and many more.
