Disinfectants Market Outlook – Ebola and Dengue Fever Epidemic to Drive Market Growth

Outbreak of infectious diseases such as Ebola and Dengue has an immense impact on growth of the disinfectants market. The dramatic outbreak of Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) during 2014 - 2016 affecting Sierra, Liberia, Nigeria, Guinea, U.S., U.K., Mali, Italy, Senegal, and Spain is one such instance. As per the data released by World Health Organization (WHO) in June 2016, 5,000 deaths were reported form over 10,000 reported cases EVD in Liberia.. This was followed by Sierra and Guinea, where more than 6,500 people died due to the Ebola outbreak, During and after this outbreak, consumer health concerns regarding infectious diseases increased, in turn creating high demand for disinfectants.. As per the statistics released by the National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme (India), 227 deaths were reported from 111,880 cases of dengue fever in the country, in 2016.   This, also helped fuel the demand for disinfectants globally.

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing region in the disinfectants market, mainly due to the increasing prevalence of infectious diseases, with the growth in population, as well as growing health concerns in the region. Europe is projected to be the largest market for disinfectants over the forecast period, owing to high health awareness among the populace in the region and large concentration of end-use industries. Emerging economies such as India, China, and Brazil are majorly untapped markets that are expected to gain traction with shifting focus of increasing number of manufacturers in the regions. Manufacturers have also came up with the concept of ‘disinfectant sachets’ especially for the rural areas and noncommercial usage. For instance, DuPont introduced VIRKON S VIRUCIDAL disinfectant sachets especially for the Indian market.

Key players in the global disinfectants market include Zoetis, Nufarm Limited, Stepan Company, Quat-Chem Ltd., Thymox Technology, and The Chemours Company.
