Peracetic Acid Market for Food and Beverages, Pulp and Paper Bleaching, Water Treatment, Medical, Agriculture and Other End-users - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2014 - 2020

Peracetic acid is an oxidizing agent and disinfectant produced by hydrogen peroxide and acetic acid in the presence of catalysts. Based on end-user requirements, peracetic acid is manufactured in different grades. The grades manufactured vary in percentage concentration of peracetic acid. Usually, a low concentration based peracetic acid mixture is used for sanitization and disinfection applications in various end-user industries. These properties make peracetic acid vital in the food and beverages industry. Being a strong oxidizing agent, peracetic acid is also used in the paper and pulp bleaching industry. Anti-microbial properties of peracetic acid make it valuable in medical, household care and water treatment industries. Peracetic acid is also used as an important biocide in agriculture and horticulture industries. 

Food and beverages was the largest segment of the global peracetic acid market, accounting for more than 25% share in 2013. Food and beverages is anticipated to be the fastest growing end-user segment of the global peracetic acid market in the next six years. Growth in population coupled with ever-increasing demand for food and beverages in the form of frozen meat, poultry and aerated and non-aerated drinks is expected to drive the food and beverages industry in the next six years. Rising concerns regarding hygiene across the globe along with high vulnerability of microbial infection in frozen foods is likely to drive the demand for peracetic acid in the next few years. Increasing demand for clean water from household and industrial applications is also estimated to drive the demand for peracetic acid in the global water treatment industry in the next six years. 

The global peracetic acid market has been segmented based on regions such as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Rest of the World (RoW). North America was the largest regional market for peracetic acid, constituting over 30% share in 2013. Increasing demand for peracetic acid in food and beverages and water treatment industries is projected to drive the peracetic acid market in North America in the next few years. Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest growing region in the global peracetic acid market during the forecast period. Higher demand for peracetic acid in developing nations in Asia, such as China and India, is likely to drive the peracetic acid market in Asia Pacific in the next few years. The peracetic acid market in North America and Europe is expected to grow significantly in the next six years, due to steady recovery of the economy in the U.S. and developed countries in Europe. The peracetic acid market in RoW is projected to grow prominently in the next few years, led by to rising demand for peracetic acid in regions such as Latin America and the Middle East.

Increasing demand for peracetic acid in rapidly growing end-user segments such as food and beverages and water treatment is anticipated to drive the global peracetic acid market in the next few years. Higher mass production of peracetic acid for reduction in its prices is estimated to offer substantial opportunities to the peracetic acid market in the next six years. However, fluctuation in prices of raw materials coupled with hazards of peracetic acid due to exposure is likely to hamper market growth during the forecast period. Key manufacturers of peracetic acid include Ecolab Inc., Diversey, Inc., Mitsubishi Gas Chemical Company, Inc., Kemira Oyj, Solvay S.A., Evonik Industries, Thai Peroxide Limited and PeroxyChem LLC.
