Infection control and prevention is one of the major concerns in the healthcare industry. As a result, the infection control supplies are gaining immense importance and are being widely adopted to keep a check on spread of infections primarily in the healthcare settings. Infection control supplies play a pivotal role in sanitization and sterilization in the healthcare facilities and are key in maintaining optimum level of biosafety. They are clinical in prevention and control of contamination as it kills microorganisms, bacteria and pathogens. Infection control supplies owing to their benefits are extensively implemented for efficient management of safety in healthcare facilities and also in prevention of microbial cross-contamination through pathology testing laboratories, hospital surfaces, and other areas where patients are treated. The transmission of microbes can lead to outbreak of infectious diseases. Various types of infection control agents are available such as hand & skin disinfectant, and surface disinfectant which is helpful in preventing the spread of infectious diseases. Further, wearable equipment including medical gloves, caps and surgical gown also aid in reducing the spread of pathogens outside healthcare settings.

COVID – 19 scenario analysis: 

  • The COVID-19 pandemic has emerged as a humanitarian as well as economic crisis, creating strain on the society and affecting millions of people and businesses
  • Industry closures and people are asked to stay in their homes which has cause taken a huge toll in terms of money and economic growth
  • Over 4 million people affected globally, with 300 thousand losing their lives due to SARS-CoV-2
  • Healthcare organizations are already working in battle mode, preparing new plans to respond growing COVID-19 patients, right from sourcing rapid diagnosing kits to sufficient PPE kits for workers
  • The high demand for infection control supplies owing to preventing contamination due COVID-19 outbreak might foster a breakthrough situation and tremendous growth of the market can be expected as the entire healthcare sector is emphasizing on the mass production of infection control agents

Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers and Impact Analysis

The rising geriatric population, increasing prevalence of chronic diseases globally, resulting in treatment involving surgical and non-surgical interventions are the key factors driving the infection control supplies market growth. Factors such as sedentary and lethargic lifestyle coupled with unhygienic conditions will surge the global disease burden. The high susceptibility of aging population is highly related with acquiring of infectious diseases due to weak immune system owing to less physical activity. As per WHO,  7% of hospitalized patients in developed countries and 10% of patients in the developing countries are likely to get infected by some healthcare associated infection.

Hospital acquired infections are nosocomial infections which are acquired by the patients usually during their stay at healthcare facilities. Additionally, higher stay duration of patients in the hospitals, rising geriatric population and patients’ immune health are other factors fuelling the growth of disinfectants and cleaning agents market. As a result, the prevention and control of hospital acquired infections would prove beneficial for the growth of disinfectants and cleaning agents market. Moreover, supportive regulatory scenario and supportive initiatives by several government and healthcare regulatory bodies would also stimulate the growth of disinfectants and cleaning agents market.

The growing rate prevalence of several infections like human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis, tuberculosis, human papillomavirus (HPV) and the recent outbreak of coronavirus (SARS-CoV2) would create immense growth opportunities among others for the development of disinfectants and cleaning agents market in the near future. Additionally, the growth in lifestyle diseases worldwide, will serve as a driving factor for the market. As disinfection and sterilization are majorly associated with killing pathogens, bacteria and microorganisms, the demand for disinfectants will peak in order to minimize the ailments caused due to infectious pathogens and improper disinfections.

However, lack of awareness regarding infection control and prevention coupled with unhygienic conditions may hamper the market growth upto certain extent.

Increasing number of hospitals and growing pharmaceutical sector

The number of hospitals, surgical centers, and clinics is rising day by day.  In a study conducted regarding the expenditure on healthcare globally was 10.4% of total GDP was spent on healthcare and this number would go on increasing with 10.5% spent in 2020. The rising number of hospitals is majorly seen in developing economies like India and China. This increase in number of hospitals and increasing surgical and non-surgical treatments would surge the demand for infection control supplies as they are required for proper surface sterilization and disinfection thus creating growth avenues for infection control supplies market.

The pharmaceutical sector is experiencing tremendous growth. The sector has grown exponentially from USD 100 billion in 2017 to USD 1.2 trillion and is expected to reach USD 1.5 trillion by 2023 growing at a CAGR of 4-5%. Thus this growing sector will also produce immense amounts of biohazardous waste and contaminants such as microorganisms, bacteria and pathogens which would need to be sterilized via infection control supplies. Such factors will in turn stimulate the market growth for infection control supplies.

Rising incidences of hospital acquired infection to promote the growth

Owing to rising incidences of hospital acquired infections, increasing demand for efficient management of disinfections and sterilizations in healthcare settings and growing acceptance of central sterile supply department (CSSD) in healthcare settings would foster the market development. These infections include several complications such as hospital-acquired pneumonia, surgical site infections, bloodstream infections and urinary tract infections among others. The U.S. health agency, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) studies stated that hospital-acquired infections affect approximately 1.7 million people and accounts for 99,000 deaths annually in America. Hospitals and other healthcare facilities have been observed promoting and innovating their infection control protocol to reduce the cases of hospital acquired infections. The demand for maintenance of clean, sanitized, sterilized environment has been gaining popularity in the recent times in order to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. These factors are clinical in fuelling the demand for infection control supplies market in the near future.
