Industrial & Institutional (I&I) Cleaning Chemicals

As Quoted In Food Production Daily

Rapid gains for disinfectants and sanitizers in health care, as well as increased concern over food contamination, will propel US demand for industrial and institutional cleaning chemicals.

US demand to reach $11 billion in 2016

Demand in the US for industrial and institutional (I&I) cleaning chemicals is projected to increase 3.7 percent per year to $11 billion in 2016. This represents a considerable improvement over the 2006-2011 period, when nearly every market struggled and a few registered outright declines. But as the economic recovery continues to gain momentum, manufacturing activity will rebound and patronization rates of commercial establishments will increase -- benefiting products used to clean restaurants, hotels, and other commercial facilities.

Food/beverage processing to propel manufacturing segment to fastest growth

The manufacturing segment is projected to register the fastest growth in demand for I&I cleaning chemicals through 2016, based in large part on sustained growth in food and beverage processing, which accounts for the majority of consumption in manufacturing. Smaller industrial markets, such as fabricated metal processing, will also grow rapidly.

In the institutional segment, health care will remain the largest market, and by far the fastest growing. The aging of the population will raise the number of doctors’ office visits, hospital visits, and other patient encounters, which will elevate cleaning requirements. Moreover, the constant challenge of keeping up with new strains of bacteria and other microbial threats will necessitate the use of higher value products.

In the large commercial segment, growth in demand will be somewhat slower, due mostly to the overall maturity of such markets as foodservice, laundry and dry cleaning, offices, and retail outlets. However, the hotel and lodging market will post above average growth due to increases in the number of establishments and increased patronage rates associated with the improving economy.

Disinfectants & sanitizers fastest growing products

Through 2016, disinfectants and sanitizers are projected to register the fastest gains among product types, in part due to their intensive use in the fast-growing health care market. However, increased concern about contamination of food and other products will also drive demand for disinfectants, as well as associated products such as specialized hand cleansers, both to prevent the effects of contamination on finished products and to avoid potential liability issues.

In general, the I&I market is fairly mature. However, despite a lack of notably bold product innovations, there have been a number of equipment innovations within the industry. Specialized dispensing equipment for hand cleansers and other products have been introduced to deliver the proper amount of product and reduce waste. Improvements to floor finishing equipment have allowed suppliers of floor care products to offer improved performance with lower labor costs.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $9.3 billion US I&I cleaning chemical industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, with forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by market (e.g., commercial, manufacturing, institutional and government), product (e.g., general purpose cleaners, floor care products, warewashing detergents, disinfectants and sanitizers, laundry care products) and raw material (e.g., chlor-alkalies, solvents, surfactants, phosphates, biocides).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 46 industry players, including Akzo Nobel, BASF and Church and Dwight.
