Disinfection & Sterilisation: leading areas of recent innovation

Share this page:

The global outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has trigged a spotlight on disinfection and sterilisation solutions, attracting interest and investment from companies looking to develop new technologies.

Our analysis on patents published in the disinfection and sterilisation technology area reveals UV lights and formulations that target surface biofilms are the undisputed leading technologies for indoor air sterilisation and surfaces disinfection, respectively. A closer look into sterilisation solutions specific to mobility applications (cars, buses, trains, for example) highlights both UV and also ion technologies as key applications.

Download the Cipher report on Disinfection and Sterilisation below, covering:

  • Indoor air sterilisation solutions: advanced air purifying solutions for the elimination of airborne viruses/bacteria in indoor spaces like elevators or buildings
  • Disinfection of surfaces by biocides: Disinfection of hard surfaces using active ingredients, single chemical compounds (biocides) with antibacterial/antiviral action and/or mixtures with other ingredients with different functionalities i.e. surfactants, enzymes, etc.
  • Sterilisation and disinfection solutions for mobility applications: solutions to effectively disinfect the interior of vehicles or public transports

Using Cipher, we have looked at innovation and invention trends across disinfection and sanitisation solutions, identifying growing technologies and top players.
