Analysts’ Viewpoint

Since toxic chemicals in disinfectants can cause respiratory and central nervous system disorders, manufacturers are increasing the availability of eco-friendly disinfectants during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. The disinfectants market is expected to reach US$ 14.9 Bn by 2030. However, alternate cleaning technologies such as pulsed UV (ultraviolet) light technology and high intensity ultrasound are emerging as a stiff competition to the sales of chemical- and alcohol-based disinfectants. Hence, manufacturers should innovate in eco-friendly disinfectant products to diversify their supply chains and expand business opportunities. They should increase their R&D for electrochemically activated solution, which uses powerful biocidal liquid capable of killing germs and bacteria.
