UV disinfection equipment market sees massive revenue growth again
Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection is a non-chemical process by which pathogens within or on the surface of a liquid or gaseous medium are exposed to a dose of UV light that approaches the peak of germicidal efficacy, thereby inactivating the DNA of the pathogens. The growing interest in providing safe drinking water in emerging countries is driving the market.
Through marketing channels, the UV disinfection equipment market can be segmented into direct marketing and indirect marketing. The direct marketing market is expected to grow as the direct marketing channel helps sellers to reach out to potential customers for products such as UV disinfection equipment.
The global UV disinfection equipment market was valued at USD 1.3 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 5.7 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 17.1% from 2020 to 2027.
Region-wise, the UV disinfection equipment market in North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and LAMEA is analyzed. North America holds a major share of the UV disinfection equipment market due to the growing concern about environmental and health issues related to disinfection, chemical and biological contaminants as by-products in wastewater, chemical and biological contaminants in wastewater and water supply, which is a key opportunity to drive this market in the future.
In addition, the growing demand for UV-C light-based automated surface disinfection systems across the U.S. healthcare industry during the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak is expected to drive the growth of the overall North American UV disinfection equipment market.
The demand for UV disinfection equipment for air treatment is expected to surge during the COVID-19 pandemic. Air conditioning systems used in offices can be breeding grounds for corona virus and can spread the virus throughout the room, especially if not cleaned regularly. To effectively deal with COVID-19, UV-C germicidal lamps can be installed in ventilation ducts to clean the air passing through them. As air flows through the air conditioning system, UV-C inhibits the formation of mold in the air conditioning system and helps reduce viruses and bacteria, preventing them from multiplying.
Offices and commercial establishments are an important part of the economy and cannot be restricted forever. After COVID-19 for office work, it is likely to remain unchanged and sanitary codes will be implemented. This is expected to increase the demand for UV-C lamps for surface disinfection.
During the COVID-19 outbreak, demand for UV disinfection equipment in the food and beverage industry is expected to surge. Governments have exempted the food and beverage industry from lockdown and placed it in the essential daily category. As a result, the industry is expected to see an increase in demand for UV disinfection equipment for liquid sweetener disinfection, chlorine and ozone destruction, and surface disinfection.
The demand for UV disinfection systems in the healthcare industry is expected to surge during a pandemic due to the increasing demand for surface disinfection in hospitals. As a result, there is a surge in demand for automated UV disinfection systems, which consist of high-powered UV lamps that emit UV-C rays and can operate with minimal human intervention. In addition, the systems are conveniently sized and can be easily moved from room to room and disinfect surfaces without direct contact with the object.
