Disinfection robots automatically disinfect the air and surfaces of hospital environments and significantly reduce the duration and resources spent on disinfection while lowering the risks of exposure for healthcare personnel. Hospital-acquired infections are a major concern for the healthcare industry worldwide. Every year, millions of patients get infected, among which thousands of patients die due to complications resulting from the infections contracted in the hospital. Disinfection robots are mobile robots that can navigate independently or with the assistance of an operator. As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, the usage of disinfection robots has expanded beyond hospitals to public transit and other public venues such as shopping malls.
The key factors driving the disinfection robots market are the increasing prevalence of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) and their high economic burden. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, HAIs in U.S. hospitals have resulted in medical expenditures of approximately $28.4 billion each year.
Furthermore, technological advancements in the field of robotics and their increased adoption in emerging economies are some of the major factors that provide significant growth opportunities for market players. However, certain limitations of disinfection robots, including the high initial capital investment coupled with additional repair and maintenance costs, are expected to hamper the growth of this market to a certain degree.
Impact of COVID-19 on the Disinfection Robots Market
The WHO declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic on 11th March 2020 and directed countries to take immediate actions to detect and contain the transmission of the disease. In order to curb the spread of infection, hospitals worldwide started adopting disinfection robots to carry out efficient disinfection without the need for manual intervention. The utilization of disinfection robots drastically minimized the risk of exposure. According to the International Federation of Robotics (IFR), the COVID-19 pandemic increased the demand for professional cleaning robots, including disinfection robots, by approximately 92%.

Additionally, disinfection robots are increasingly being utilized in other public areas to curb the spread of the highly contagious SARS-CoV-2 virus. For instance, the robot Breezy One by Fetch Robotics, Inc. (U.S.) is used to disinfect the airplanes in the Albuquerque airport. Similarly, numerous restaurants started using robots for service in restaurants and disinfection purposes. For instance, in 2020, NCH Healthcare System, a non-profit healthcare system based in Florida (U.S.), deployed their germ-zapping robots in six restaurants in Naples. These robots use pulsed beams of UV light to disinfect dining areas.
Furthermore, numerous hotels in Tokyo (Japan) admitted and housed mildly affected COVID-19 patients in an attempt to reduce the burden on hospitals. These hotels used robots for greeting the guests and disinfecting the areas used by the patients. Also, various shopping malls, offices, and food retailers have started using disinfection robots for sterilization and ensuring the safety of their staff against exposure to infection.
Thus, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the adoption of disinfection robots tremendously and is expected to positively impact the disinfection robots market.
