Global Alcohol-based Disinfectants Market: Snapshot
The global alcohol-based disinfectants market is foreseen to rake in a high demand in the near future while riding on the ability of the disinfectants to efficiently eliminate germs and evaporate soon after. Besides hand sanitizing, alcohol-based disinfectants could be engaged for other applications such as food sanitization. Since a substantial count of manufacturers perform downstream activities, there could be a high degree of forward integration taking shape in the market. Forward integration is expected to advantage players with market dominance and customer retention.
By the end of 2020, the global alcohol-based disinfectants market could draw a revenue of US$2.1 bn.
Hand Sanitizers Outshine Most Applications with Need to Avoid Epidemic Diseases
Alcohol-based disinfectants could play a significant role in the healthcare sector, owing to their wide range of applications. Clinical device disinfecting, clinical surface disinfecting, and hand sanitizing are anticipated to be some of the crucial applications of alcohol-based disinfectants on the commercial front. In the recent past, hand sanitizers secured a larger share in the world alcohol-based disinfectants market. The inflating significance of keeping up with hand hygiene in healthcare facilities could augment the demand for hand sanitizers. The rising awareness about maintaining overall personal hygiene is also predicted to increase the need for hand sanitizers.
The epidemic occurrence of H1N1 and swine flu viruses and other superbugs could be another reason for the rise in the growth of the alcohol-based disinfectants market for hand sanitizers. The spread of diseases could usually be supported on the back of primary mediums such as hands. Moreover, the periodic nature of major disease outbreaks could leave an enduring impact on the minds of people. As a result, hand hygiene is expected to play a critical part in sidestepping major diseases. Such types of alcohol-based disinfectants could boast of efficient germ killing properties.
In terms of product, isopropyl and ethyl alcohol exhibited a massive share in the world alcohol-based disinfectants market in the latest past. N-propyl was ranked immediately after the two more successful alcohol-based disinfectants. Treading on the heels of n-propyl, methyl alcohol could not be used as much as other alcohol-based disinfectants.
