Additionally, increased efforts by regulatory bodies such as the WHO and CDC to control the spread of the coronavirus and stricter guidelines for using cleaning and disinfection products, particularly sanitizers, have boosted demand for the product in APAC. Furthermore, in developing countries such as India and China, the government is taking initiatives to create awareness about health & hygiene through medical tourism, favoring market growth. 

On the other hand, factors such as increasing automotive production, industrial production, construction and infrastructure activities, and rising demand for cleanliness at these locations augment the market growth. In addition, the advancements in surface disinfection and stringent government regulations for surface disinfection positively influence the market growth of surface disinfectants. Increasing investments and funding by the government and non-government organizations for developing the healthcare infrastructure ensures new market entrants.

As a result, rising demand for other environmentally friendly disinfection treatments hinders market growth.
