Disinfection robots are machines that are programmed to perform the task of disinfection in some degree of autonomy. They have the capability to disinfect a whole room in a short period of time, using either ultraviolet light or spraying a chemical disinfectant. Several types of disinfection robots, such as ultraviolet light disinfection robots, disinfectant spraying robots, and combined system disinfection robots, are widely being used to efficiently disinfect surfaces in healthcare facilities and other public areas. The ultraviolet light disinfection robots use UV-C light to eradicate bacteria, viruses, and fungus by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA. They are the most common type of disinfection robots and are estimated to account for a share of 68.6% in 2021 of the disinfection robots market. They are widely used due to the rapid spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, increasing awareness about the spread of hospital-acquired infections, and the efficacy of UV-C irradiation to disinfect surfaces.
In 2021, the market size for ultraviolet light disinfection robots reached $2.79 billion by 2028 from an estimated at a CAGR of 30.1% during the forecast period.
