Disinfectants are chemical substances that are applied to non-living objects and surfaces of the floor to destroy microorganisms. The essential use of disinfectants is part of a strategy to prevent infectious diseases. Here surfaces are considered noncritical items and they contact intact skin. The use of noncritical items or contact with noncritical surfaces carries little risk of causing an infection in humans. Surface should be clean in hospital, clinics and Ambulatory surgical centers because there is higher possibility to spread the infection among patients and staff.
Clean t185he surfaces with disinfectant is the first and foremost step to prevent the infection in the hospital. Medical device surfaces such as hemodialysis machines, gloves, stethoscopes, blood pressure cuffs, CT scan, MRI scanners and X-ray machines can become contaminated with infectious agents and contribute to the spread of Infectious diseases while examining the patient health. To prevent this, noncritical medical equipment surfaces should be disinfected with an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) -registered low- or intermediate-level disinfectant. Examples of some of clinical contact surfaces include light handles, switches, reusable containers of dental materials, countertops, and telephone handles.
However, while using disinfectants we need to take precautions and we need to use the disinfectant which is approved by government organization such as Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).With good awareness about healthcare among people and guidance from international organizations about the use of surface disinfectant, the use of Surface Disinfectant will increase and the market is expected to have a healthy growth in the forecast period (2016-2026)
Depending on geographic regions, the global Surface Disinfectant market is segmented into seven key regions: North America, South America, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, Asia Pacific excluding Japan, Japan and Middle East & Africa.The use of Surface Disinfectant is high in North America because it is highly developed region, having good healthcare setup and people are having good awareness about health care. In Asia pacific region china and India also having rapid growth in health care set up. Europe also having good growth in this market.
