Sanitizers and Disinfectants

By Rajoshi-


With the advent of 2020, we saw the surfacing of the novel “corona virus”. This virus by far
has caused an extreme amount of eradication in the whole world and supposedly will
continue to do so even in the future. Any person is prone to get affected by this virus and is
likely to pass it on to as many people as they come in contact with. No cure to this has been
discovered yet. Hence, the only way we can keep ourselves safe is by performing social
distancing and constantly cleansing our hands and our surroundings, but water is not
available everywhere. That is where comes the role of sanitizers and disinfectants.
Sanitizers and disinfectants are used for cleaning and killing germs. However, there is a slight
difference in how they work. Sanitizers reduce germs on the surface whereas disinfectants
kill microorganisms on a wider level. This is because disinfectants consist of a large amount
of strong chemicals as compared to sanitizers. Disinfectants also take longer to do their job.
To make a sanitizer or disinfectant legal for use, it has to be certified by the Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA). A certain number of tests are run in order to check if the chemical
is strong enough to do its work, at the same time not hazardous to the health of living beings.
The use of sanitizers and disinfectants have increased progressively in the recent years. With
the rise in consciousness for hygiene, hospitals, healthcare centers, offices and educational
institutes have been using these chemicals lately. This has resulted in a rapid market growth
for sanitizers and disinfectants. Corona virus has augmented this growth. Cleanliness is no
more only about wiping out dust and soil but also killing of germs that can be harmful to
health. This has given rise to more demand for sanitizers and disinfectants and eventually to a
higher amount of revenue earned from them and is expected to continue growing in the future
as well.
The Indian market has not only seen a huge growth on the sanitizers and disinfectants sale but
also a rise in the selling of local sanitizer brands. These local brands have surpassed the most
commonly sold sanitizers. This is due to the increase in demand of sanitizers and lagging
supply by such big brands. Similarly, in the international market, the sales of sanitizers and
disinfectants have been growing rapidly due to increase in awareness of hygiene. It is
estimated to keep growing even when the corona virus is over.
