Hydrogen peroxide is widely employed as a biocide for disinfection, sterilization, and antisepsis and is commercially available in a variety of concentrations, ranging from 3% to 90%. Furthermore, these hydrogen peroxide based antiseptics and disinfectants are priced on perpetual license model and are moderately priced. Hydrogen peroxide products enable the user to practice low frequency clinical applications, allow the healing of extreme pain due to infection, and assurance of 90% recovery features by physicians are likely to propel the segment during forecast period. These hydrogen peroxide-based products address specific challenges faced during the treatment procedure due to the presence of catalase or other peroxidases in the organisms, which can increase tolerance in the presence of lower concentrations of hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide-based products facilitate results in antisepsis and increase the level of disinfection & sterilization strength along with a combination of other chemicals.
