Disinfectant & Antimicrobial Chemicals

As Quoted In Coatings World

A rebound in building construction activity, in conjunction with an improving US economy, will drive strong increases in industrial markets such as paint and coatings, and plastics.

US demand to rise 6.1% annually through 2017

Demand for disinfectant and antimicrobial chemicals in the US is forecast to rise 6.1 percent annually to $1.6 billion in 2017. A rebound in building construction activity, in conjunction with an improving US economy, will drive strong increases in industrial markets such as paint and coatings, and plastics. In institutional and consumer applications, anxieties about disease -- foodborne, health careassociated (HAI), and antibiotic-resistant -- will lead to gains amid increasing regulatory scrutiny and intensifying cleaning regimens. Rising public concern about microbial pathogens will also support growth in some industrial markets as disinfectant and antimicrobial additives are used in a broader array of products. Overall, strong volume growth will offset moderate price increases and shifts toward lower cost disinfectants.

Housing rebound to benefit key markets

Substantial growth in residential construction activity, led primarily by a housing rebound, will result in the increased production of antimicrobialcontaining products such as water-based architectural paint, floor coverings, home textiles, and other construction materials. Organosulfur compounds will see significant growth in these applications, particularly in paint, thanks to performance advantages and environmental concerns about competing products.

More thorough disinfection regimens to spur gains

Several factors will result in more thorough disinfection regimens among food and beverage processors, hospitals and other health care providers, restaurants, and hotels. Heightened public apprehension about foodborne illnesses such as E. coli and Salmonella, increased regulatory scrutiny following the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2011, and growing liability concerns will contribute to increased disinfectant demand in the food and beverage processing and the restaurant and lodging markets. In the medical and health care market, concerns about HAIs such as C. difficile and antibiotic-resistant pathogens such as MRSA, changes in Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement rules, pressure from insurers, and extensive coverage of deadly outbreaks by the mass media will continue to drive disinfectant and antimicrobial consumption. Phenolic compounds are projected to capture most of the growth in health care applications in value terms, owing to their efficacy and ease of use.

Demographics, consumer trends to influence demand

An older population will spend more money at restaurants and hotels, driving disinfectant use in those environments. Aging baby boomers will also require more medical care, necessitating more disinfectants for health care settings. Rising consumer spending will support sales of specialty disinfectant cleaners and value-added consumer products imbued with antimicrobial properties, such as odor-resistant athletic apparel and degradation-resistant plastic products.

This industry study, Disinfectant & Antimicrobial Chemicals, presents historical demand data (2002, 2007, 2012) and forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by market, function, and product. The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles 20 industry players such as BASF, Dow Chemical, and Lonza Group.
