Cleaning chemicals

The global hospital cleaning chemicals market size is estimated to grow by $5.13 billion from 2023 to 2027, according to Technavio. This growth is expected to occur at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 8.61 percent during the forecast period.

Key Trends Fueling Growth

  • Increasing popularity of online distribution channels:
  • Online distribution channels have become crucial for buyers and manufacturers of cleaning chemicals. They offer convenience and cost savings, especially for hospitals. Manufacturers focus on both direct and online channels to reach hospitals globally. The Internet's widespread use enables suppliers to reach more customers easily.
  • Platforms like IndiaMart, Alibaba, and Amazon facilitate the distribution of cleaning chemicals to hospitals worldwide. Companies utilize these platforms to expand their customer base and boost profits.
  • Online promotions and discounts attract hospitals to purchase cleaning chemicals in bulk. This trend is expected to continue, driven by the ease and frequency of online purchases. 


Major Challenges

  •  Adverse effects of cleaning chemicals
  • Hospital cleaning chemicals, vital for maintaining hygiene, can pose health risks to workers. Exposure to compounds like quaternary ammonium, glutaraldehyde, and bleach can lead to respiratory issues, skin irritation, and asthma. Sodium hypochlorite, a common disinfectant, may cause skin and eye damage.
  • Hydrogen peroxide, another key ingredient, can irritate the skin, eyes, and respiratory system.
  • Such risks deter workers from using these chemicals, impacting market growth negatively. Reducing chemical uptake is crucial to minimize occupational hazards in hospitals.
