The Transparency Market Research report on the global ultraviolet germicidal irradiation market states that this market will be worth US$430.3 mn by 2023 from US$168.4 mn in 2014, expanding at a CAGR of 10.9% from 2015 to 2023. The growing awareness amongst consumers about advanced food packaging techniques and hygienic surroundings are augmenting the global UVGI market at a steady pace. This market is also thriving due to the stringent regulations laid down by governments about purity standards and need to control the spread of diseases.
The key players holding the lion’s share in the global ultraviolet germicidal irradiation market are America Ultraviolet, GE Water & Process Technologies, and UltraViolet Devices, Inc. amongst others, TMR finds in a new report. The majority of these companies will focus on offering effective and cost-efficient products to tap the unmet needs in the overall market. For instance, GE Water & Process Technologies is adopting advanced H-technology to improve its line of products and services to gain a competitive edge in the overall vendor landscape. The global UVGI market will also witness a broader range of products in the coming years to appeal to a wider segment of consumers.
Prevention of Diseases Augments UVGI Market
The noteworthy technological advancements in the UVGI systems have made them a popular choice for sterilization process in restaurants, air-conditioned offices, food joints, hospitals, and several manufacturing units. Consumers are opting for installing hi-tech UVGI systems in order to prevent the occurrence of dangerous airborne diseases, reducing the maintenance cost of HVAC, and mitigating the chances of microbial contamination through air vents.
The rising number of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) is also driving the global UVI market. According to statistics published by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2013, about seven patients out every 100 admitted in hospitals acquire HAIs. The global UVGI market will growth at an unprecedented rate against the backdrop of these factors.
Import-related Hurdles to Restrain Market
The biggest challenge faced by this market are the hurdles in developing countries to import UVGI systems. Furthermore, these countries also have a dearth of skilled labor that has the technical knowledge of installing and maintaining these systems. Therefore, the majority of the developing countries have to depend on outsourcing help, which increases the installation costs.
