U.S. disinfectant spray market size, by type, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a positive impact on the disinfectant spray industry. The outbreak of COVID-19 has created extensive demand for disinfectant spray across hospitals, nursing homes, and households. Companies have been responding positively to the crisis by increasing the supply of disinfectant sprays and offering it through both offline and online mediums, as household consumers preferred online shopping over offline, owing to safety concerns.

An increase in demand for disinfecting air and surface due to the presence of coronavirus across the globe is one of the major factors driving the market for disinfectant sprays. In April 2020, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Centers for Disease Control released a list of disinfectant sprays that were effective against COVID-19 and guidance for disinfecting public spaces, workplaces, businesses, schools, and homes, and falls in line with the Opening up America Again guidelines, that promoted the adoption of disinfectant sprays across North America.

Among these, UTI is one the most common HAI diagnosed among patients, for which strict rules have been authorized by governments around the world. With the rise in hospital-acquired infections across the globe, there is a rise in demand for disinfectant spray to reduce such infections.

The online B2C distribution channel has significantly changed the shopping habits of people as it offers benefits such as doorstep delivery, easy payment methods, heavy discounts, and the availability of a wide selection of disinfectants on a single platform. Key players in the market for disinfectant spray are increasingly launching e-commerce websites in large lucrative markets owing to the rising internet penetration and increasing propensity of mobile shopping among consumers.

Type Insights

The conventional segment dominated the disinfectant spray market and held the largest revenue share of 84.7% in 2021 and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. Conventional disinfectant sprays refer to air and surface disinfectants that kill more than 60 types of organisms instantly with more than 60% alcohol content. Owing to the rise of HAIs across the globe, hospitals are adhering to strict infection prevention practices that promote the adoption of disinfectant spray. For instance, in U.S. Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals, the number of infection prevention practices increased to 12 between 2005 and 2017 and 92% to 100% of VA hospitals reported regular adherence to key infection prevention practices. Such initiatives by medical facilities are anticipated to boost the growth of conventional disinfectant sprays.

Organic or natural disinfectant sprays have germ-fighting, antifungal, and antibacterial abilities but do not contain any alcohol or bleach. In addition, a rise in demand for environment-friendly products with no adverse effects is driving the market. The rising focus of major manufacturers, such as AIRZAI and Organic Harvest, in expanding their organic disinfectant spray portfolio, is leading to the growth of this segment.

Distribution Channel Insights

The B2B distribution channel segment dominated the market for disinfectant spray and accounted for the largest revenue share of over 63.7% in 2021. The demand for B2B channel is driven by a rise in demand for disinfectant sprays from hospitals, nursing homes, and medical laboratories, among others. The number of patients increased up to twice in 2020, owing to the COVID-19 crisis. Furthermore, the new pandemic peak comes as the Delta and Omicron variants are spreading simultaneously across the U.S., and cases in the country increased roughly 60% in December 2021, largely because of the Omicron variant.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there has been a rise in the patient count since the new Omicron variant and approximately 77,000 Americans were hospitalized with COVID-19 in December 2021. U.S. states such as Hawaii, New Jersey, New York, and Virginia witnessed a weekly increase in the patient count of 20% or more in mid-December 2021. With the rise in hospitalization, there is a rise in demand for disinfecting all hospital surfaces and environments for every new patient getting hospitalized, which, in turn, is leading to increased adoption of disinfectant sprays by the end-users belonging to the B2B channel.

Global disinfectant spray market share, by distribution channel, 2021 (%)

The B2C distribution channel segment is anticipated to witness a higher CAGR of 8.8% during the forecast period. The rise in demand for disinfecting household surfaces owing to the risk of contamination of coronavirus has led to a rise in the adoption of disinfectants among end-users. Furthermore, post COVID-19 crisis, online platforms have offered significant advantages to consumers, such as freedom of selection, conventional and organic disinfectant spray prices, and high visibility of international brands, which makes them a suitable platform for all types of customers. Online platforms offered a more convenient and safer platform than convenience stores, during the pandemic and lockdown restrictions, which was one of the major factors for the demand for disinfectant spray from the online B2C distribution channels.

North America dominated the market for disinfectant spray and accounted for the largest revenue share of over 33.4% in 2021. The presence of well-established disinfectant spray manufacturers in North America, such as Clorox Company, 3M, and Procter and Gamble is another factor expected to support demand.
