Antiseptics are chemical compounds or antimicrobial agents that kill or inhibit the growth of microorganism when applied to a living tissue, such as skin. While disinfectants are chemical compounds that prevent infection by the killing microorganisms growing on inert objects such as the knives, forceps, etc., disinfectants are utilized to sterilize surgical instruments and equipment, utensils, workstations, and floors. Disinfectants harm the tissues and cannot be employed for cleaning the skin and mucous membranes. Antiseptics and disinfectants are effective against a broad range of microbes such as bacteria, fungus, viruses, protozoans, and other microorganisms. A wide variety of chemical agents are utilized in these products such as alcohol, iodine, phenol, chlorine, and others. The most commonly used antiseptics are chlorhexidine, hydrogen peroxide, mercury compounds, alcohol, cetrimide, and benzalkonium chloride. Antiseptics and disinfectants form an essential part of infection control practices and aid in the prevention of acquired and nosocomial infections. Antiseptics and disinfectants have diverse applications in hand washing, pre-operative skin disinfection, mucous membrane disinfection, preventing and treating infected wounds and burns, and in laboratory settings for cleaning and disinfecting different types of instruments and workstations. These are widely employed in hospitals and pathological laboratories, clinical research institutes, pharmaceutical and food & beverage industries, and in-home care settings.

The global antiseptics and disinfectants market is anticipated to expand at a rapid pace in the near future. The rise in market value is witnessed due to the outbreak of infectious diseases such as swine flu and avian flu, which have triggered the usage of antiseptic and disinfectant products. Furthermore, increasing awareness about infectious diseases, worldwide, rising inclination toward preventive healthcare, easy availability of disinfectants, and various initiatives taken by the government institutes to promote hygiene and sanitation are projected to drive the expansion of the antiseptics and disinfectants market during the forecast period. Antiseptics are primarily utilized in healthcare facilities in order to disinfect the surgical site before surgery, wounds, burns, and for dressing purpose. Moreover, these are widely employed in dental practice for routine disinfection of oral cavities. Rising incidences of hospital-acquired infections have triggered the consumption of disinfectants and antiseptics by healthcare facilities. Increasing number of diverse surgical procedures, worldwide, is projected to be a key driver of the global antiseptics and disinfectants market during the forecast period. Moreover, the increasing number of hospitals and diagnostics centers and rising healthcare expenditure toward disease prevention is likely to fuel the demand for antiseptics and disinfectants in the near future. However, the fragmented market to domestic players and high price competition is likely to restrain the market during the forecast period.

The global antiseptics and disinfectants market can be broadly segmented based on chemical ingredients, end-user, and geography. In terms of chemical ingredients, the market can be segregated into alcohol antiseptics and disinfectants, chlorhexidine antiseptics and disinfectants, iodophor, phenol, peroxygen, and quaternary ammonium compound antiseptics and disinfectants. The alcohol antiseptics and disinfectants segment is likely to account for a prominent share of the global antiseptics and disinfectants market during the forecast period. Alcohol antiseptics are generally made of isopropyl or methyl alcohol and ethyl alcohol and are widely utilized to disinfect different types of medical instruments and disinfect the skin before a surgery or injection. These are also employed for floor cleaning and workstation cleaning in laboratories and healthcare setups. Based on end-user, the antiseptics and disinfectants market can be classified into healthcare setups, diagnostics and clinical laboratories, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, food & beverage industry, blood banks, and academic and research institutes. The healthcare setups segment is projected to expand at a significant growth rate during the forecast period and is likely to dominate the market by the end of 2025.

In terms of geography, the global antiseptics and disinfectants market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America is projected to dominate the global market during the forecast period. Europe is anticipated to follow North America in terms of share of the global antiseptics and disinfectants market during the forecast period. The leading share and expansion of the market in these regions is attributed to the well-established healthcare facilities, high rate of adoption of standard operating procedures in healthcare setups, high awareness among the medical practitioners and increasing pressures to reduce the hospital-acquired infections in these regions. Asia Pacific is anticipated to be a highly lucrative market during the forecast period owing to the rapidly changing healthcare infrastructure and increased investments in the lifescience industry in emerging countries such as India and China. The market in Latin America is projected to expand at moderate growth rate during the forecast period.
