The onset of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has caused increased pressure on the healthcare system to maintain proper sanitization and hygiene in facilities. Companies in the U.K. hypochlorous acid market are taking keen interest in developing efficacious disinfectant products to combat the novel virus in hospital settings. The U.K.-based specialist in water purification, sterilization, and disinfecting industries, Envirolyte ECA U.K. Ltd., is increasing its research efforts to induce hypochlorous acid in disinfection products that can be used in the prevention and protection against COVID-19.
In several countries, hypochlorous acid is known for improving the hygiene standards in healthcare, food processing, and water treatment applications. On the other hand, it has been reported that hypochlorous acid has helped COVID-19 patients breathe efficiently. Thus, companies in the U.K. hypochlorous acid market are increasing their production capabilities to aid COVID-19 patients for breathing efficiently as patients in the past have recovered from pneumonia with the help of the acid.
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to an unprecedented demand for hand sanitizers. Hence, companies in the U.K. hypochlorous acid market are focusing on producing sanitizers during the coronavirus era. For instance, Well-Tech Innovation company is gaining market recognition for its hypochlorous acid-induced hospital-grade sanitizer PROTech-500, which is EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and FDA (Food & Drug Association) approved. Manufacturers in the U.K. hypochlorous acid market are developing sanitization solutions that are more effective than common bleach.
Environment-friendly sanitizers are in high demand amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Manufacturers are increasing their R&D efforts to develop sanitizers that are safe around animals. Non-toxic and safe storage attributes of sanitizers are highly preferred by consumers. They are increasing awareness about hypochlorous acid being more cost efficient as compared to bleaching solutions.
Wound care treatment is a common day-to-day activity for clinicians in hospitals and other healthcare settings. Similarly, hypochlorous acid has become synonymous with wound management such as in cases of ulcerated wounds and even for patients with MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) infection. Fast wound healing is associated with hypochlorous acid for diabetic skin ulcers, since it prevents biofilm from infecting the wound. Such stable business avenues are creating value-grab opportunities for companies in the U.K. hypochlorous acid market, where the market is expected to reach a revenue of ~US$ 145 Mn by 2030.
Companies in the U.K. hypochlorous acid market are leveraging incremental opportunities to transform cleaning and housekeeping sectors of the water recycling and food processing & manufacturing industries.
Germicidal and sterile solutions are being made with the use of the hypochlorous acid to remove viral, fungal, and bacterial contamination from swimming pools. Hypochlorous acid is helpful in cleaning and sterilization applications of the pharmaceutical and agriculture industries. However, this acid is associated with problems of being unstable and having a short half-life of only certain hours, resulting in loss of their antimicrobial activity. Hence, companies in the U.K. hypochlorous acid market are investing in processes to conduct electrolysis of brine solutions to improve the efficacy of hypochlorous acid products.
Manufacturers in the U.K. hypochlorous acid market are establishing stable revenue streams by increasing their production for sterilizing solutions and bleaching agents that are routinely used in dentistry, veterinary medicine, and agriculture sectors. Pathogen destruction is important in dentistry since individuals are susceptible to cross-infection.
Fresh food production, crop management, and water treatment are crucial applications of hypochlorous acid. Hypochlorous acid is considered as nature’s oldest disinfectant and is acquiring prominence in surgical procedures and other interventions. Providing sterilized and disinfected equipment in hospitals holds a lot of importance to reduce incidences of common hospital-borne infections. As such, MRSA and clostridium bacteria are highly prevalent in healthcare environments.
Veterinary, medical, and agricultural applications are key revenue generating sources for companies in the U.K. hypochlorous acid market. Hypochlorous acid is gaining popularity as an effective antimicrobial agent, owing to its advantages of non-oral toxicity and non-mutagenic attributes. Companies in the U.K. hypochlorous acid market are creating awareness about this acid, which is comparatively more stable to oxidizing agents such as bromine, chlorine, and chlorine dioxide. This acid is also replacing sodium hypochlorite in housekeeping and disinfection applications amidst the COVID-19 pandemic due to its safe and superior disinfection capabilities.
Hypochlorous acid is transforming infection control practices in dentistry. As such, coronavirus is under scrutiny for being an airborne threat. Hence, disinfectant products are attracting investments from manufacturers in the U.K. hypochlorous acid market. Groundbreaking disinfection products are in high demand for dentistry applications, and hypochlorous acid qualifies as an efficacious and safe acid, which is replacing older technologies such as hypochlorite and hydrogen peroxide. Since hypochlorous acid has a neutral pH, it swiftly attacks the bacterial cell wall of pathogens, thus improving the kill speed in sanitization applications.
The disinfection power in pure hypochlorous acid solutions is higher as compared to bleaching solutions. Companies in the U.K. hypochlorous acid market are educating people to use this effective acid post the pandemic, owing to its safe and toxic-free attributes. As such, hypochlorous acid is being pervasively used for inactivating bacteria and to dissolve biofilms in intraoral dental applications.
Pathogen destruction has fueled the demand for hypochlorous acid products in domestic and healthcare spaces amidst the COVID-19 crisis. The U.K. hypochlorous acid market is projected to advance at a modest CAGR of ~4% during the forecast period. This is evident since electrolysis of brine solutions to improve stability in hypochlorous acid is a cost-intensive procedure. Despite being a slow and expensive procedure, manufacturers should deploy innovations in hypochlorous acid, since this acid is comparatively more stable to oxidizing agents such as bromine, chlorine, and chlorine dioxide. Companies should expand their business in fresh food production and agricultural applications to prevent crops from airborne invaders.
