The global cleanroom disinfectant market is expected to reach USD 7,907.0 million by 2028 from USD 3,711.5 million in 2016 at a CAGR of 8.1% during the forecast period (2016-2028). Non-oxidizing disinfectants are expected to lead the market with a share of 54.2%. North America is expected to witness a high growth rate with 9.3% CAGR over the forecast period due to increasing demand for non-oxidizing and oxidizing disinfectants in hospitals and the pharmaceutical industry as well as an increase in biotechnology facilities that require accurate sterilization level before research can start which requires non-oxidizing and oxidizing disinfectants respectively.

Cleanroom disinfectants are chemical products applied to clean surfaces of equipment and facilities in order to protect them from possible contamination by harmful microbes. Cleanrooms refer to spaces that have been specifically designed for the production of goods or devices on a large scale, with minimal risk of contamination. They help ensure sterility-critical tasks can be completed without fear of cross-contamination between samples and avoid causing adverse reactions among patients who receive medical treatments. The use of these chemicals is essential not only for maintaining health standards but also because they enable companies (such as pharmaceuticals) to produce high-quality items at an affordable cost while complying with FDA guidelines.

Cleanroom disinfectant is a chemical agent that ensures the environment in which it's used is sterilized. The process of cleaning and disinfecting an area involves three steps: removing all dirt, debris, or other foreign material from the surface; coating surfaces with liquid chemicals to kill any microorganisms residing there, and leaving the treated area for long enough to ensure that the chemical has had time to work.

On the basis of type, cleanroom disinfectant is segmented into non-oxidizing disinfectants, oxidizing disinfectants, and others.

Non-Oxidizing Disinfectants

These are disinfectants that do not release oxygen or ozone and hence cannot kill bacteria through oxidation. They have to rely on physical means such as chemical agents (like sodium hypochlorite), heat, or cold for their action. Nonoxidizing disinfectants can be used in combination with other types of sterilization methods where they would act as a “cleaner” agent. The most common non-oxidizing class is the phenolic compounds which include chlorine dioxide gas, hydrogen peroxide vaporized liquid, and quaternary ammonium salts.

Non-oxidizing cleanroom disinfectant is a type of chemical agent that kills microorganisms without oxygen. Non-oxidizing agents are also called quaternary ammonium compounds, or Quats for short. The most common Quat used in this regard is benzalkonium chloride. They have little to no effect on human cells and tissues because they don't require any air exposure to kill germs effectively.

Oxygenating Disinfectants

Oxidizing disinfectants are a type of chemical that destroys disease-causing microorganisms and their toxins by means of oxygen. It is used to cleanse medical instruments, surfaces, or any other materials for surgical use. Oxidized agents work quickly but also make the surface water-sensitive which can cause corrosion problems if not kept dry; therefore they should be applied in areas where moisture cannot accumulate on the surface treated with oxidant chemicals.

Oxygenating disinfection kills bacteria by releasing free radicals that break down the cell walls of microbes. This type of disinfectant is used for high-level disinfection and sterilization, as the concentration is lethal to all microorganisms on exposure. The most commonly utilized oxidizing agents are hydrogen peroxide vaporized liquid or gas (H202), chlorine dioxide gas (ClO²), and ozone (03) gas.

On the basis of application, the global cleanroom disinfectant market is segmented into the biotechnology industry, pharmaceutical industry, hospitals, and medical devices manufacturers.

Biotechnology Industry

Cleanroom disinfectants are used to control the spread of infectious diseases in areas that have a large concentration of people like biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. These types of businesses require clean, sanitized environments for manufacturing different products using human as well as animal cells or tissues. The use of these chemicals helps maintain a controlled environment by eliminating microbial contamination associated with microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, etc. It provides protection against infection-causing microbes including those found on hard surfaces and ventilation ducts.

Pharmaceutical Industry

Cleanroom disinfectants are sometimes used in the pharmaceutical industry to prevent contamination of drugs or products being manufactured. It is often part of a process where different steps are taken to ensure that any microorganisms on surfaces and equipment get killed as quickly as possible, which helps reduce the risk for infection by such organisms. Cleanroom disinfectants also help protect staff who need to work with all these items from getting infected themselves. In some cases, cleanroom disinfectant might be necessary when cleaning up an area following an accident or incident.


Hospitals use cleanroom disinfectant to sterilize the hospital environment and also for patient equipment. It is often used when treating patients with compromised immune systems or in cases of infectious diseases that require isolation from other patients. Cleanroom disinfectant can be applied using a variety of methods such as spraying, wiping, vaporizing, dipping (with immersion), etc. The type of method typically depends on what surfaces need to be cleaned by the product and how much time is available before it needs to dry up completely.

Medical Device Manufacturers

Cleanroom disinfectants are used by medical device manufacturers. Cleanrooms and clean manufacturing facilities are essential for producing sterile products for human use, as well as pharmaceuticals. Sanitizers kill microorganisms on surfaces such as tools or equipment that may harbor bacteria, fungi, viruses or other pathogens from a previous process step. Disinfectants prevent microbial growth by destroying them (bactericides), while antiseptics act primarily to remove organic matter left behind after these processes so they can no longer support life (disinfectants). Antiseptic cleaners work best when applied with a spray bottle rather than just sprayed onto the surface of the object being cleaned. Instructions should be followed carefully because some substances will damage plastics and metal alloys more than others.

On the basis of region, the global cleanroom disinfectant market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East Africa. North America leads the market followed by Europe owing to the presence of a large number of pharmaceutical manufactures in these regions. The global cleanroom disinfectant market is mainly concentrated in North America and Europe.

Non-Oxidizing Disinfectants accounted for a higher share in North America while Oxidizing Disinfectants dominated Latin America from 2017 to 2028 (forecast period). The gain is attributed to increased awareness about health risks such as MRSA which results from continuous exposure to bacteria that can cause uncontrolled growth and infection within the human body leading to sepsis or even death if not treated immediately; resulting in demand for a cleaner environment. Moreover, high incidence rates of HIV/AIDS also contributed towards a preference for oxidizers due to their ability to kill microorganisms by destroying them rather than just preventing microbial reproduction like non-oxidizing disinfectants.

On the other hand, Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing market for cleanroom disinfectants in near future due to the rapid increase of investment from pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies coupled with an increasing preference towards cleaner production processes.

Growth factors

The major factor driving this growth is increasing awareness about the effectiveness and benefits of using these products in various industries like biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, hospitals, etc. Some other factors that are influencing this market are rising global economic standards for hygiene management systems which include the use of disinfectants as well as higher investment in research & development activities by manufacturers.
