High Rate of Occurrence of Hospital-Acquired Infections (HAIs)

Hospital-acquired infection is a type of nosocomial infections which is found in patients. The transmission of pathogens can occur by direct contact with hospital equipment, healthcare workers, or contaminated environment. The incidence of HAIs is mainly reliant on the patient’s immune status, infection control practices, and the prevalence of various infectious agents around the hospital facilities. Thus, the burgeoning number of HAIs in patients is propelling the growth of surface disinfectant in the forthcoming years.

Skyrocketing Demand of the In-House Segment in GCC Region

The in-house surface segment is projected to outperform the other application segments in 2019. The growth is driven by the high prevalence of hospital-acquired infections in the GCC thus, surging the need for disinfectants to clean these surfaces. The liquid and wipes are commonly used for cleaning and disinfect the in-house segment.

Wipes Segment Exhibiting the Highest Market Share

Wipes segment showcased the largest growth with the highest market share in 2019. Wipes are easier to use and have advantages such as zero water consumption, lesser chances of cross-contamination compared to liquids, and ease of use. The wipes are primarily used for medical device disinfectant for the surfaces. The wipes generally are high in cost and are currently confined only to developed nations. Moreover, the spray segment also witnessed an induced demand in GCC countries and is projected to show positive growth during 2020-25 as stated in the MarkNtel Advisors’ research report “GCC Surface Disinfectant Market Analysis, 2020”. 

Hospital Segment as the Dominant Segment

Hospital setting's end-user segment is estimated to attain a higher CAGR during 2020-25 and remained a dominant sector in 2019. The growth of the segment is attributed to high occurrence of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs), thus resulting in cost burden on the stakeholders, which have driven the adoption of infection control products such as surface disinfectants in hospital settings.
