Concerns Surrounding Food Safety and Infectious Diseases Drive Demand for I&I Cleaning Chemicals
Growth will be driven by worries arising from recent, well-publicized cases of foodborne illnesses and infectious diseases such as influenza, in particular in healthcare applications, food-related settings, and institutional facilities.
Key Findings in the
I&I Cleaning Chemicals Study:
General Purpose Formulations to Remain the Largest Product Type Through 2022
General purpose cleaners are expected to remain the largest product type for I&I cleaning chemicals, supported by their widespread use across a variety of markets. Their ease of use and labor-saving properties, in particular for under- or untrained employees, will further support growth, with stronger gains restrained by increasing use of automated dispensers that reduce overuse of chemicals.
Disinfectants and Sanitizers will Offer the Best Opportunities
Disinfectants and sanitizers will provide robust opportunities through 2022, buoyed by an aging US population and the associated increase in healthcare utilization, and public worries surrounding infectious diseases and food safety. Demand for laundry detergents is expected to rise at a below-average rate, as manufacturers introduce highly concentrated formulations designed to use less water in their production and application.
Healthcare, Food-Related Applications to Post the Fastest Growth
The healthcare, foodservice, and food and beverage processing markets are forecast to post the fastest gains through 2022, with demand boosted by concerns regarding infectious diseases and food safety. Hotels and other lodgings will also see market-leading growth, as personal spending power allows for more travel by the US public. Demand for I&I cleaning chemicals in laundry and dry cleaning applications will remain flat, as the growing popularity of easy-to-care for fabrics and worries about the health impact of dry cleaning solvents result in declining numbers of dry cleaning establishments.
This study presents historical demand data (2007, 2012, and 2017) and forecasts for 2022 by market, including commercial, industrial, and institutional markets. The study also evaluates the industry by product (general purpose, floor care, warewashing detergents, disinfectants and sanitizers, vehicle washes, laundry detergents, hand cleansers, and other cleaning chemicals) and by raw material (chlor-alkalis, surfactants, solvents, phosphates, biocides, and other raw materials).
Do you need to know about major trends impacting the future of industrial and institutional cleaning chemicals?
This study will provide you with 46 figures and 54 tables of reported data on the industry, including demand by markets, products, and materials.
One of the key trends in the industry currently is that concerns surrounding the food safety and infectious diseases are driving demand for I&I cleaning chemicals. This is partially due to well-publicized nationwide cases of foodborne illnesses and infectious diseases, particularly in food-related settings. As far as best opportunities for growth, both disinfectants and sanitizers will offer many opportunities for industry participants. This study will provide more data and detail on why these opportunities exist.
Growth in the overall industry for cleaning chemicals will come from the fastest-growing segment of healthcare and food-related applications. Demand will be boosted by concerns regarding infectious diseases and food safety. Hotels and other lodgings will also see market-leading growth, as personal spending power allows for more travel by the US public.
