Antiseptic is a chemical substance used to kill the pathogens and harmful microorganisms in or on the surface tissue of the human body. They mainly act by dissolving cell membranes, protein denaturation and cause dehydration of the cells due to evaporation. For instance, Chloroxylenol is a chlorinated phenolic antiseptic mostly active against gram-positive bacteria and is used in lubricating cream for vaginal examination.
On the other hand, disinfectants are chemicals used to kill the pathogenic microorganism in or on the surface of objects. The disinfectant's main course of action includes the disruption of cell membranes and the denaturation of proteins and enzymes of the cell. These chemical agents are very effective against vegetative gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, mycobacteria, and viruses. For instance, Lysol a phenol compound is used as a general disinfectant for domestic or hospital use like disinfection of floors, bathrooms, washbasins, organic waste such as sputum, faeces, urine, etc.

Increasing awareness, particularly in developing economies like the Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa, and Latin America, is expected to boost the market shortly.
Suitable reprocessing of medical devices and endoscopes is quite necessary because the infection can be spread from one patient to the next as these devices come into close contact with the skin and body. In hospitals, approaches are necessary to maintain sufficient hygiene and sanitation, thereby reducing the risk of HAIs. This trend is expected to fuel market growth throughout the forecast period for antiseptics and disinfectants.
Additionally, factors such as an increasing percentage of hospitals and advanced healthcare facilities across the globe and the rising trend of the health club and fitness centre are also expected to drive the antiseptics and disinfectants market. Moreover, the keen interest of the young generation towards precaution over the flu, bacterial and viral infections will probably increase the demand for antiseptics and disinfectants.
However, the lack of complete knowledge over the use of these products, fluctuations in the availability of different chemical agents are hindering market growth to a small extent. Strict rules and regulations by government officials in approving new products in concern towards public safety is also impeding the demand of the market. Some of the disinfectants are also high in risk when used regularly, which may limit the need of this market.
