The surface disinfectant market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.5 percent during the forecast period of 2022 to 2030. The expansion can be ascribed to a number of factors, including changes in lifestyle in developing nations, the rigorous regulations for the use of surface disinfectants, the rising usage of innovative surface disinfectants for sanitization, and the higher prevalence of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are the primary factors that are driving the growth of the market. 

The proliferation of rigorous rules places an increased emphasis on the formulation of appropriate policies for housekeeping services, which in turn places a premium on the maintenance of high standards of cleanliness and sanitation. As a consequence of the implementation of such regulatory requirements, there will be an improvement in the consistent application of surface disinfectants throughout the healthcare industry. 

Most of the chemical disinfectants on the market contain characteristics that make them poisonous. For instance, sodium hypochlorite is an effective treatment against blood-borne pathogens; however, because it is highly corrosive and an irritant to the respiratory system, it is hazardous for cleaning personnel as well as the occupants of the building. Sodium hypochlorite also is toxic when released into the environment and causes damage to a variety of surfaces. 

It is anticipated that factors such as the rising prevalence of chronic diseases and the rising rate of infections acquired in hospitals would drive the expansion of the market. The need for surface disinfectants in healthcare institutions and hospitals has been on the rise as a direct result of a growing elderly population as well as an increase in the incidence of chronic diseases such as high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, and heart ailments. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that HAIs are responsible for around 1.7 million infections and 99,000 fatalities in the United States each year. Patients and healthcare providers will be forced to focus more on disinfection as the number of HAI cases continues to rise, which will help growth.
