Pune, Oct. 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global hydrogen peroxide market size is projected to reach USD 2,122.1 million by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 3.7% during the forecast period. Soaring demand for disinfectant products amid the COVID-19 pandemic will be a powerful growth driver for this market, states Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled Hydrogen Peroxide Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Grade (<35% and >35%), By Type (Disinfectant, Bleaching Agent and Others), By Application (Pulp & Paper, Chemical Synthesis, Textile Bleaching, Water Purification, Home & Personal Care and Specialty Applications), and Regional Forecast, 2020-2027”. The coronavirus pandemic has reaffirmed the importance of hygiene and sanitation since the virus has been known to spread through infected surfaces as well as through the air. As a result, the demand for disinfectants has suddenly spiked. The Clorox Company, for example, reported in June 2020 that the shipment of its disinfectant products was at an all-time high, with the demand for some products spiking by more than 500%.

Similarly, to meet the surging demand, Zep Inc. announced in June that it will be increasing the production of disinfectants and sanitizers at its plants in Texas and Georgia. Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is a widely used compound in a variety of disinfectants owing to its fungicidal, sporicidal, virucidal, and bactericidal properties. Thus, the COVID-19 pandemic will provide a major boost to the growth of this market.

Market Driver

Growing Volume of Wastewater Discharge Worldwide to Heighten Demand for H2O2

Wastewater management and treatment has become a serious challenge to governments and other regional and international bodies. According to UN Water, globally, approximately 80% of the wastewater is released into the ecosystem without being treated. As a result, around 1.8 billion people around the world are forced to use water contaminated with a wide variety of pollutants, putting them at risk of developing diseases such as cholera and typhoid. Hydrogen peroxide provides an optimal solution to the problem of wastewater treatment as this compound is extremely versatile and environment-friendly. It has strong oxidizing properties, which make it suitable for destroying different kinds of pollutants present in water.
Furthermore, partial oxidation of toxic compounds using hydrogen peroxide can raise their biodegradability quotient, thus reducing their toxicity. Thus, the dire need to effectively treat wastewater is likely to fuel the hydrogen peroxide market growth.
