The pandemic has disrupted healthcare systems worldwide, with hospitals being overwhelmed due to the increasing influx of patients. Temporary hospitals are also being set up to deal with the growing number of cases. Hence, the spread of COVID-19 has spurred a surge in demand for cleaning and disinfection products due to the growing awareness about hygiene, health, and safety. 


The COVID-19 outbreak has made personal and household disinfection increasingly important to prevent the spread of the disease. Cleaning product companies ramped up production, resulting in volume increases of sanitizer products upward of 60% (Source: American Cleaning Institute, 2020). Equipment sterilization plays a critical role in preventing the spread of COVID-19 in healthcare settings. 

The usage of reprocessed equipment to disinfect or sterilize medical devices is higher than normal during the pandemic since improper decontamination of surgical instruments, endoscopic devices, respiratory care devices, and reusable hemodialysis machines can increase the chances of COVID-19. This has increased the demand for sterilization consumables to ensure the proper sterilization of medical devices.  

The growing number of surgical procedures performed has resulted in the increasing demand for different surgical equipment and medical devices during these procedures. This is expected to drive the demand for infection control products and services due to the proven benefits of sterilized products and growing awareness about their effectiveness in infection control health settings.
