Sanitization of Public Places Owing to COVID-19 will Surge Demand for Surface Disinfectants

The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic across the globe has surged the demand, as they are mainly required to disinfect and sanitize objects and places that come under frequent human contacts. The governments of many countries have put forward stringent rules and regulations on the hospitals, cafeterias, and restaurants for maintaining proper hygiene. Apart from that, the cases of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) are rising day by day. Such infections include ventilator-associated pneumonia, catheter associated infections, and surgical site infection. Therefore, the governmental agencies are emphasizing on the sanitization of healthcare facilities. However, the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) stated that the users of these disinfectants were found to be greatly affected by various harmful health effects. This factor may obstruct the surface disinfectant market growth during the forthcoming years.
