Disinfectant & sanitization services are used essentially for disinfecting environmental surfaces like floors, walls, & structures. Various types of disinfectant sprays, wipes, wraps, etc., are being increasingly adopted across the healthcare, residential, & commercial areas in the UAE. With the advent of Covid-19 in 2020, these disinfectant & sanitization services are gaining immense attention across the UAE.
The UAE Disinfectant & Sanitization Services Market is anticipated to grow at an exponential CAGR during 2022-27. The Covid-19 pandemic has dramatically fueled the use of disinfectant & sanitization services, not just in the UAE but worldwide. The market growth during 2022-27 is likely to be driven primarily by the mounting prevalence of infectious diseases and surging Hospital-Acquired Infections (HAIs) across the country, i.e., leading to the burgeoning number of surgical procedures.

HAIs are more common among people undergoing long-term care, most critically surgical treatment. They are caused mainly due to lack of adequate hygiene in healthcare facilities, the usage of catheters, & overuse of antibiotics.
Hence, the increasing incidences of HAIs due to the lack of sanitation & preventive measures in the UAE is driving the market for disinfection & sanitization services. Moreover, the key industry players introducing high-level disinfection & sanitization products is another crucial aspect projected to drive the market in the coming years.
Furthermore, the rising prevalence of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, & other autoimmune diseases, owing to the mounting adoption of sedentary lifestyles & increasing alcohol consumption levels, would further drive the demand for disinfectant & sanitization services across the UAE during 2022-27.
Impact of Covid-19 on the UAE Disinfectant & Sanitization Services Market
The Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 severely impacted almost all industries across the UAE, yet it had a positive impact on the Disinfectant & Sanitization Services Market. The pandemic created an extensive demand for disinfectant sprays across hospitals, nursing homes, and households owing to the mounting need for disinfecting air & surfaces due to the presence of coronavirus, which, in turn, significantly contributed to the market growth amidst the crisis.
The leading players in the industry increased the supply of numerous disinfectant & sanitization products and offered them, both through the online & offline distribution channels. Household consumers preferred online shopping over offline, owing to safety concerns & movement restrictions, which also helped augment the market growth. Hence, all the aspects cited above led to the exponential growth of the disinfection & sanitization services market in the UAE amidst the pandemic, and the same trend is likely in the years to come.
