Disinfectants Market Outlook – Ebola and Dengue Fever Epidemic to Drive Market Growth
Outbreak of infectious diseases such as Ebola and Dengue had an immense impact on the growth of 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, there were over 10,000 reported cases of people suffering from EVD in Liberia, out of which almost 5,000 people died. This was followed by Sierra and Guinea, where more than 6,500 people died during the Ebola outbreak. Ebola virus can cause severe hemorrhagic fever which can also be fatal. During and after this outbreak, consumer health concerns regarding infectious diseases in turn creates high demand for disinfectants. During 2010, 2013, 2014 and 2016 there was a number of fatalities reported in India due to dengue. As per the statistics released by the National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme (India), 111,880 cases of dengue fever were reported in the country during 2016 resulting in 227 deaths. This has also fueled the demand for disinfectants globally.
Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing region in the disinfectants market, mainly due to growing health concerns and increasing prevalence of infectious diseases. Europe is projected to be the largest market for disinfectants over the forecast period. This is mainly attributed 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 can be tapped into by manufacturers to achieve substantial growth in the market. Manufacturers have also came up with the concept of ‘disinfectant sachets’ especially for the rural areas and noncommercial usage. For example, 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.
