North America Surface Disinfectant Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The size of the North America Surface Disinfectant Market was around USD 1.91 billion in 2023. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.64% to reach USD 2.76 billion by 2028. It captures 35% of the global market. The use of surface disinfectant is high in North America since it is a highly developed region, has a robust healthcare setup, and people are acutely aware of healthcare.

The growing demand from medical facilities is driving the North American surface disinfectant market. Due to the rising number of medical procedures, the need for hygiene and prevention of infections has increased the sale of surface disinfectant in the region. Also, strict laws and regulations regarding surface disinfectants are further boosting the market share. The increased usage of surface disinfectants in healthcare facilities for sanitation and hygiene will propel the market.

The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases in the United States and Canada in the past few years is driving the market share forward. The rise in the geriatric population will significantly alter the healthcare facilities and elevate the North American surface disinfectant market due to their weakness against hospital-acquired illness.

The growing adoption of bio-based surface disinfectants in the healthcare industry is providing an opportunity for the key players in the market. Because they are harmless, biodegradable, and environmentally friendly, they are seen as substitutes for chemical-based disinfectants. With the approval by the FDA regarding the use of biobased material for producing surface disinfectants, substantial market growth opportunities in the region are anticipated.

Irregularities in the application of standard disinfectant techniques by users are restricting the expansion of the North American surface disinfectant market. Cleaning is a multifaceted infection prevention and control intervention that calls for an all-encompassing strategy in environmental and healthcare settings. In environmental and medical settings, cleaning is a complex infection prevention and control measure that necessitates a complete approach. Training and monitoring of cleaning staff should align with healthcare facility policies and national guidelines, ensuring proper display of SOPs in key areas.

The harmful properties of surface disinfectants are one of the major challenges facing companies. Today, the majority of chemical disinfectants on the market have harmful qualities. For instance, sodium hypochlorite is an effective remedy for blood-borne infections, but it poses a risk to building occupants and cleaning staff because it is extremely corrosive, harmful to the respiratory system, and is not environmentally friendly. Due to the regular use of surface disinfectants, the volatile organic compounds present will create severe health problems. For instance, around 15 percent of the general public, as well as more than 30 percent of asthma patients, suffered health problems in a room cleaned with scented disinfectant.

Impact of COVID-19 on the North America Surface Disinfectant Market:

COVID-19 significantly increased the demand for surface disinfectant products in the region. After the COVID-19 breakout, the virus rapidly spread to every region, infecting millions of people. Because of the increased demand for disinfectants, businesses had to boost their production. Disinfection practices significantly reduced the spread of the COVID-19 virus in non-healthcare places like homes, schools, offices, and markets. This resulted in a growth in demand for surface disinfectants.
