Market Dynamics


The growing awareness of infections

The growth is due to several factors, including changes in emerging nations' lifestyles, an increase in livestock farmers' awareness of animal diseases and increased demand for disinfectants for use in livestock farms. On the other hand, a rise in the need for cleaning supplies, sanitizers and disinfectants is projected to fuel market expansion. Petroleum byproducts make up most of the raw materials used in producing surface disinfectants.

The rising concerns about hospital-acquired diseases

The demand for surface disinfectants is rising as hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) become more common. Patients develop hospital-acquired infections throughout their hospitalization, but they are not identified at the time of admission. Infections by intrusive devices and medical equipment include pneumonia connected to ventilators, catheter-associated infections and more. The prevalence of (HAIs) has significantly decreased due to the regular use of these disinfectants in healthcare facilities. Demand would rise due to the government's demands that healthcare facilities prioritize cleaning, acting as a market driver.

Segment Analysis

The global polyisobutylene market is segmented based on product, formulation, end-user and region.

The rising surgical processes drive the growth of the hypochlorite segment

Due to factors like the rise in surgical operations, a rise in hospital-acquired infections and product launches, the hypochlorite segment is anticipated to account for a sizeable portion of the market. Hypochlorite is present in liquid or solid form. Several public health organizations advise using sodium hypochlorite for surface disinfection, which is also anticipated to fuel the market's expansion.
