US demand for hydrogen peroxide will reach 985 million pounds in 2006. Pulp and paper will remain the largest outlet-with gains led by waste paper deinking-while water treatment, organic chemical synthesis and environmental uses grow the fastest. Derivatives will outpace hydrogen peroxide based on increasing demand for non-chlorinated bleach alternatives.
This study analyzes the $371 million US hydrogen peroxide and derivatives industry. It presents historical data for 1992, 1996 and 2001 and forecasts to 2006 and 2011 by product (e.g., hydrogen peroxide, sodium perborate, sodium percarbonate, methyl ethyl ketone peroxides, benzoyl peroxide); by market and by US geographic region.
The study also examines the US market environment and world outlook, details industry structure and market share, and profiles 12 major companies including Solvay, FMC, Degussa, and Atofina.
