Global Industrial & Institutional Cleaning Chemicals by Product, Market and Region, 4th Edition

Disinfectants and Sanitizers Drive Growth in Global I&I Cleaning Chemicals Market

I&I Cleaning Chemicals

Growth will be fueled by healthy growth in all product segments and markets in developing countries, while concerns surrounding healthcare-related infections and food safety will impact markets across the globe.

Key Findings in the Global I&I Cleaning Chemicals Study

Disinfectants and Sanitizers to Post the Fastest Gains

Demand for I&I cleaning chemicals in disinfectants and sanitizers is expected to grow at a market-leading pace, driven by increasing healthcare utilization in developing regions and a recovery in foodservice revenues following declines in several significant markets. General purpose cleaners will remain the largest product segment, with their position supported by their use in almost all I&I applications. However, the maturity of many markets in developed regions will restrain growth.

The Asia/Pacific Region to Overtake North America as the Largest Regional Market

North America was the largest regional market in the global I&I cleaning chemicals market in 2016, with its position supported in part by the large and mature food and beverage processing, healthcare, and foodservice industries as well as stringent health and safety regulations. However, the Asia/Pacific region will overtake North America as the largest regional market in 2021. Growth will be supported by significant gains in China, although growth is expected to slow from the double-digit gains seen over the past decade. Japan will remain a significant market, but an aging population and a relatively stagnant manufacturing sector will restrain growth.

Increases in Personal Incomes in Developing Countries will Drive Gains in the Global Market

Growing personal incomes in developing countries will allow for higher rates of restaurant patronage, supporting demand for warewashing, disinfectant, and floor care I&I cleaning chemicals. Gains in personal spending will also allow for greater utilization of healthcare that was once unaffordable, driving growth in disinfectants and sanitizers. Vehicle care chemicals will benefit from the greater rates of vehicle ownership permitted by higher personal incomes.
