The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is increased awareness of sanitation and hygiene. The awareness about sanitation and better hygiene is increasing among people around the world because of various propagation channels, such as online media and offline campaigns.

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is outbreak of life-threatening diseases. A disease outbreak is the occurrence of a disease in excess of what can normally be expected in a given community, region, or season. In recent years, the outbreak of various diseases has affected several countries across the world. Diseases caused by bacteria like E. coli have been rampant in recent years. Lack of proper hygiene and sanitation is a major reason for the spread of diseases. A low-level of hygiene during hospital stay and patient care also creates a breeding ground for various microorganisms, such as viruses, bacteria, and spores that can lead to the spread of diseases.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is stringent regulatory policies. Governing bodies such as the Environmental protection Agency (EPA), the FDA, and the CDC are working on developing guidelines for the manufacturing and use of antiseptics and disinfectants. The EPA and the FDA are working under the FIFRA Act 1947, according to which any product used for pest control or mitigation of the growth of microorganisms should be registered by the authority before the consumption and sales of these products.
