US demand for industrial and institutional (I&I) cleaning chemicals will grow 3.8 percent annually through 2010. Value gains will be boosted by more multifunctional and concentrated types. Disinfectants and sanitizers will grow the fastest based on heightened safety and health concerns. Specialty surfactants and additives will pace raw materials.
This study analyzed the $8.3 billion I&I cleaning chemical industry. It presents historical data for 1995, 2000 and 2005 and forecasts to 2010 and 2015 by raw material (e.g., chlor-alkalies, solvents, surfactants, phosphates, biocides); by type (e.g., general purpose cleaners, floor care products, warewashing detergents, disinfectants and sanitizers, laundry detergents, vehicle wash products, hand cleansers); and by market.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 35 major producers including Ecolab, JohnsonDiversey, Acuity Brands, Procter & Gamble, and MacDermid.
