Report Description

India Surface Disinfectant Products Market is anticipated to grow at an impressive CAGR during the forecast period. The market is driven by rising hygiene awareness, increased risk of COVID-19, and consumer preference towards eco-friendly products.

Due to the increase in the worldwide pandemic, the market is expanding due to the increased utility of keeping regularly touched surfaces sterilized. The industry has grown as  the  rising consumer awareness to maintains hygienic conditions in living spaces and families has increasing importance. In addition, increased safety and health requirements in the workplace, new product launches, and an increase in healthcare-associated infections (HAI) are all contributing to the growth of the surface disinfectant market in India.

The lack of water in major Indian cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, and Chennai leads to a huge demand for surface disinfectants, which use less to no water. As a result, numerous producers are making cleaning agents that use less water. For instance, Diversey introduced the TASKI Fresh and Clean Urinal Screen and Good Sense Odor Eliminator for restrooms in 2021. These products can reduce odors and save up to 12,000 liters of water annually.

Due to the rise in contagious diseases, people in India are becoming more conscious of basic hygiene, which has significantly increased the demand for cleaning supplies. India has the second-highest rate of child casualties in Southeast Asia, according to the WHO, due to inadequate hygienic conditions. In addition, India's poor sanitation and hygiene standards annually cause over 100,000 child deaths and an enormous cost of USD 54 billion. Due to this, the market for surface disinfectants is increasing as people are getting aware of the adverse effects of not using the disinfectant.

Government Initiatives are Fueling the Market Demand

To raise awareness about sanitation and hygiene in homes, communities, and schools, many organizations in India are putting together sanitation initiatives. One such initiative, called "Right to Sanitation," is run by Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) India in collaboration with donors and civil society organizations. The initiative is built on a holistic model that emphasizes building toilets to solve issues with health and cleanliness. The program is built on three pillars: building toilets, educating people about sanitation and hygiene, and maintaining the facilities for sustainability.

Another body that has created thorough standards for hospitals and healthcare professionals is the National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare Providers. If the hospital doesn't meet the standards, this organization can streamline its operations.
