2023-2029 is the forecast period in the market report.
The development of hospital infection management over the past few years has led to breakthroughs in infection control technology. Medical institutions around the world are optimizing hospital intelligence, collecting and organizing information from multiple perspectives to create innovative models of hospital development. These models allow for savings to be made related to the prevention and control of various infections. Hospital infections are a major problem in the healthcare industry worldwide. Millions of patients are infected each year and thousands die as a result of various illnesses. The use of robots in disinfection is an excellent way to combat these infections and also helps to maintain a clean and sterile environment. The prevalence of different hospital-acquired infections and the advantages that disinfection robots offer over manual disinfection are expected to provide significant opportunities for the growth of this market in the coming years.
A study by researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) showed that after years of decline, US hospitals experienced a significant increase in hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) in 2020, largely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Analysis of National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) data from acute care hospitals in 12 states, published in Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology, found rates of central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI), infections catheter-related urinary tract (CAUTI) and ventilator-associated events (VAE) recorded a significant increase in 2020 compared to 2019, particularly in the second half of the year. There was also a significant increase in methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) bacteraemia. The increase in prevalence of such hospital-acquired infections has led to an increase in emphasis on disinfection robots. This is expected to boost the growth of the market during the estimated time period. Additionally, the ease and convenience that robots provide for cleaning rooms, appliances, etc. are very easy to instruct and operate, and there are no errors in disinfection or cleaning, which increase the demand for the disinfection robots and is expected to drive the growth of the market.
It has become necessary to reduce human exposure to potentially contaminated surfaces. As a result, there is now greater interest in cleaning and disinfection robots in these environments. Such robots, for example, currently regularly clean the Hong Kong subway, and the Smart Field Hospital in Wuhan is using it to try to curb the spread of SARS-CoV-2. Besides, emerging features and new technologies have gained the major attention of different healthcare authorities, managements and professionals all over the world and this factor is expected to provide new growth opportunities for the market over the forecast period.
Disinfection robots need an expert supervisor to set and monitor the schedule and reset it after encountering unexpected obstacles. Using a disinfection robot in addition to routine measures increases the workload instead of realizing its full potential. The ultraviolet light disinfection robots require additional time, which disrupts daily hospital life, as their use is not integrated into hospital workflows. These factors may restrain the market’s growth over the forecast period.
The inability of disinfection robots to disinfect bacterial and viral pathogens trapped in dirt and organic contamination, can inhibit the growth of this market to some extent. Likewise, the high initial costs combined with additional repair and maintenance costs may pose a major challenge for the players operating in this market over the forecast period.
The report provides an in-depth analysis of the global Disinfection Robots market, market size, and compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for the forecast period of 2023-2029, considering 2022 as the base year. With increasing demand for various disinfection robots in various applications has led the increasing demand for market and is expected to witness the growth at a specific CAGR from 2022-2029.
The global Disinfection Robots market comprises of different market segment like type, technology, end users and geography.
By type, the disinfection robots market includes the key segments of
The ultraviolet light disinfection robots segment is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period. The most widely used technology focuses on the disinfection of surfaces by ultraviolet (UV)-C radiation. All types of UV disinfection robots offer non-contact technology that provides disinfection by irradiation with an effective intensity to kill microorganisms, but without mechanical removal of dirt or biological materials containing bacteria and viruses.
On the other side, the disinfectant spray robots are expected to grow at a high rate over the projected time period. Disinfectant spray robots have been developed to sterilize environments, equipment and vehicles in open spaces. Disinfection is performed by spraying hot mist during the automatic movement of the robot along a pre-programmed path.
According to the type of technology, the Disinfection Robots is segmented into
The fully autonomous disinfection robots segment is expected to maintain its dominance over the estimated time period. The fully autonomous function allows the robot to enter very enclosed rooms and spaces and use the minimum decontamination time to achieve the goal of inactivating the pathogens. This is an essential factor that is anticipated to propel the growth of the segment over the forecast period.
Likewise, demand for semi-autonomous robots is likely to rise over the forecast period. In recent years, various semi-autonomous and tele-operated mobile robots have been developed and implemented to perform various disinfection tasks in different environments. These robots are expected to find an increasing demand in the upcoming years.
The Disinfection Robots market has major end users like
The hospitals and clinics segment is expected to lead the market over the estimated time period. The hospital setting is one of the most common sources of transmission of the virus. They can survive for days or more on inanimate surfaces in hospitals. Hospitals and clinics are more vulnerable to viruses and pathogens because they are in constant contact with infected patients. Therefore, many healthcare facilities are integrating disinfection robots for consistent surface disinfection and to reduce the spread of hospital acquired infections.
As economies are slowly reopening, public hotspots such as airports, venues, public transportation, etc. also play a crucial role in preventing the spread of the virus. These places are most likely contaminated with commonly touched surfaces such as doorknobs, elevator buttons, seats, and tables etc. The idea of using robots to clean and disinfect hospitals, public spaces and industrial facilities is gaining momentum everywhere. These factors are anticipated to contribute to healthy growth in the market over the forecast period.
