Industry Insights

The global skin antiseptic products market size was valued at USD 192.25 million in 2018 and is expected to register a CAGR of 6.9% from 2019 to 2026. Product demand is increasing due to rising prevalence of Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs), due to lack of sanitation and precaution, and increasing use of surgical units and endoscope reprocesses.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 1 in 25 hospital patients has at least one healthcare-associated infection. This is expected to boost the demand for skin antiseptic products. Application of antiseptics generally provides protection against contamination and lowers the risk of HAIs.

Thus, such solutions are widely used in hospitals to maintain proper hygiene and sanitation. These factors are expected to propel the growth of this market during the forecast period. Growing usage of endoscopy is also expected to increase the risk of HAIs. In such cases, proper application of antiseptic and disinfectantsolutions is imperative to prevent transmission of infections.

Formulations Insights

Alcohols segment led the market in 2018 owing to increased usage of formulation for pre-injection and pre-operative skin preparation. Furthermore, growing demand for alcohol base to be used in combination with other formulations, such as iodine and chlorhexidine, is fueling the segment growth. In addition, it comprises antiseptic agents, such as isopropyl or ethyl, which are effective against different microbes. Octenidine segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period. Octenidine isan internal substitute for chlorhexidine and iodine skin antiseptic products. In countries, such as U.S., the FDA has restricted the use of chlorhexidine and iodine, which may aid in the growth of this segment.

Type Insights

On the basis of type, solutions was the highest revenue-generating segment due to high prevalence of HAIs & SSIs and easy availability of different solutions. Growing awareness and increasing applications of antiseptic solutions in pre-operation and pre-injection skin preparation is expected to drive the segment further. Such solutions significantly reduce the risk of contamination and transmission of infection. Wipes segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR from 2019 to 2026. Wipes are easy to use and help in film and tape adhesion. Furthermore, they are extremely effective for wound application, as they completely clean the wound area.

Application Insights

Injection segment led the market in 2018 and is anticipated to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period. This is attributable to the increasing use of injections for extracting fluid from swollen joints for injecting medicines.

Individuals suffering from joint injuries and sports-related wounds are the primary users of the injections. Furthermore, rising awareness about the availability of injections carrying zero side-effects is expected to boost the demand further.

Regional Insights

North America led the global market in 2018 and is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period. Rising number of surgeries being performed is one of the major drivers positively impacting the market growth. The pre-operative skin preparation is one of the essential steps adopted by surgeons before surgeries. Thus the demand for skin-antiseptics products is anticipated to rise with the increasing rate of surgeries.

Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period. Increasing healthcare expenditure by public and private sectors is one of the major driving factors of the market. Such scenario is anticipated to encourage several international and local companies to enter the regional market, thereby augmenting its growth.
