The global disinfectant robot market is estimated to account for US$ 946.5 Mn in terms of value by the end of 2022. A Disinfectant Robot can disinfect an entire hospital room in about 20 minutes. It is controlled by a smartphone app, and autonomous software. It can disinfect a room or area up to 360 degrees and can detect obstacles as it moves. The system uses a powerful UV-C disinfectant to kill bacteria and viruses in the air. It also has several depth sensors to map the space it is cleaning.
The Disinfectant Robot utilizes several modules that are specifically designed to meet the challenges of different disinfection scenarios. These modules use machine vision algorithms to recognize targets and scenes in the environment. These algorithms allow the robot to choose the most effective disinfectant solution for each scenario. This allows the robot to avoid any obstacles that might hinder the robot's progress and maximize its disinfection efficiency.

Robotic technology and automation proved to be highly essential during the pandemic period. This technology helped deal with lack of workforce in various industries. Thus, the global disinfectant market witnessed a positive impact of the pandemic.
The global disinfectant robot market was valued at US$ 701.2 Mn in 2021 and is forecast to reach a value of US$ 5,742.2 Mn by 2028 at a CAGR of 35.0% between 2022 and 2028.
Among deployment segment UV-C segment held dominant position in the global disinfectant robot market in 2021, accounting for 62.0% share in terms of value, increasing approval and launch of new products is expected to propel growth of the segment during the forecast period.
Global Disinfectant Robot Market Trends:
Growing investment in healthcare and medical is a growing trend in the Middle Eastern region. This is pushing market vendors towards investment in this region. And this trend in likely to continue in the global disinfectant robot market during the forecast period. In April 2020, Bioquell revealed that the company exported 600 bottles of 35% hydrogen peroxide solution to Doha, Qatar, and this shipment was arrange for ensuring the rapid response of company’s partners to decontamination requests of hospitals in the pandemic situation. Thus, growing investment in healthcare and medical is a growing trend in the Middle Easter region in disinfectant robot market.
The UV-C segment is gaining traction in the global disinfectant robot market. UV-C type robots are used due to their benefits and efficiency. UV germicidal irradiation is used for many years in decontamination and disinfectant industries. This procedures involves short-wavelength ultra-violet C light for eliminating microbes with the range of 100 to 280 nanometers. Thus, with such benefits of these robots, the demand for UV-C disinfectant robots is high across the globe, and this is driving growth of this segment.
