Carotenoids are pigments that are found in algae, bacteria, and plants that use photosynthesis. The market for carotenoids in the food and beverage industry will be driven by rising customer preference for natural food items. The material also has a wide range of uses in the wastewater treatment industry since it is a great oxidising agent and is also trustworthy, eco-friendly, and flexible in its usage. The product's catalysed form is thought to be extremely useful in the industry because of its quick capacity to oxidise contaminants and eliminate them. Since the U.S. has been plagued by chronic water-borne illness, the market for water treatment products has seen a considerable uptick. As a result, consumption of the product is expected to continue to expand steadily in North America, particularly the U.S.

Regional Snapshots

China continued to lead Asia Pacific in 2022 and is expected to continue this trend throughout the course of the assessment period. With the fastest growth rate of 6.3% from 2022 to 2030, Asia Pacific will have a revenue market share of over 50% in 2030. This expansion is mostly attributed to the increase in demand for hydrogen peroxide in the paper & pulp and chemical industries.

India and Indonesia, among other nations, have seen rapid industrialization and urbanisation, which has fuelled the expansion of the manufacturing sector, which is mostly made up of chemical production and processing businesses. Additionally, throughout the course of the projection period in this area, trends in the market for hydrogen peroxide in the paper and pulp industry are projected to pick up steam due to the rising usage of paper in hygienic tissue sheets and food packaging. Additionally, for the anticipated period, the expanding HPPO facilities in this region will have a beneficial effect on the expansion of the product market there.

Report Highlights

  • The market is anticipated to grow as a result of rising demand from the paper and pulp industry and rising consumption of hydrogen peroxide as a raw material for the production of propylene oxide (HPPO Process).
  • Health risks and adverse consequences linked to hydrogen peroxide exposure are anticipated to impede market expansion.
  • The use of hydrogen peroxide in water treatment and the expansion of the electronic sector in developing Asian nations would probably boost demand for the market under study.
  • The hydrogen peroxide market is expected to be dominated by the Asia-Pacific region, which is also anticipated to see the greatest CAGR.
  • Over the course of the forecast period, hydrogen peroxide use in the wastewater treatment sector is anticipated to increase in response to growing awareness of healthy lifestyles and clean drinking water.
  • After the looming epidemic, the market for hydrogen peroxide has taken off. The market is anticipated to experience potential success and growth on a global scale as a result of growing application in the paper & pulp sector.

Market Dynamics


Use of hydrogen peroxide is prevalent in the paper & pulp application area. In the paper and pulp business, hydrogen peroxide is widely employed as a bleaching and oxidising agent. Utilizing hydrogen peroxide aids in achieving a brightness level appropriate for premium magazine papers, board, and tissue goods. Due to the rising use of paper throughout the world, this industry's demand for hydrogen peroxide is anticipated to expand in the near future. In affluent nations, the consumption of newspaper paper has decreased due to internet penetration and digitisation. However, the growing need for paper in the packaging and personal care sectors in emerging nations has boosted demand overall. With a market share of more than 35% in terms of application, the paper & pulp category has a dominant position. Hydrogen peroxide is utilised in the paper and pulp industry in three processes: delignification and bleaching of cellulose, pulp bleaching (high yield pulp), and recycling wastepaper (de-inking). For secondary fibres, hydrogen peroxide is utilised as a bleaching agent. When a high level of brightness is required, hydrogen peroxide is a widely utilised chemical for high-yield pulp bleaching.


Hydrogen peroxide nevertheless has a detrimental effect on the environment even though it is generally regarded as a safe chemical for usage in a variety of industries. As a result, several nations are seeking to restrict the chemical's manufacturing and usage. Long-term, this might be a significant barrier for the hydrogen peroxide market.


Hydrogen peroxide manufacturing technology advances are anticipated to boost market expansion soon. For instance, in January 2019, scientists from the Ulsan Institute of Science and Technology located in South Korea reported that they had created a novel catalyst for the use of energy to make hydrogen peroxide. A highly effective carbon catalyst that can change oxygen into hydrogen peroxide was created by the researchers.

Sodium perborate and sodium percarbonate are created using hydrogen peroxide and then used as bleaching agents in the production of detergents. Due to the numerous uses and global expansion of the paper and pulp sector, industry grade hydrogen peroxide is anticipated to see rising consumer demand. Due to its biological degradability and exceptional chemical characteristics, hydrogen peroxide is widely employed in a variety of culinary applications. In the food processing sector, it is the most often used oxidising reagent for bleaching purposes. Among other items, hydrogen peroxide is primarily employed in natural sugars, gums, starches, oils, and waxes. Food products like natural fatty acid, cheese, whey, instant tea, emulsifiers, and herring all contain hydrogen peroxide.


The expansion of the hydrogen peroxide market is anticipated to be hampered by strict rules implemented by organisations like the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) based on exposure to hydrogen peroxide. Furthermore, over the course of the forecast period, policies adopted by regulatory organisations like the Food & Drug Administration (FDA), Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)  are anticipated to restrain market growth for hydrogen peroxide. For instance, consumers are cautioned not to use concentrated hydrogen peroxide, such as 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide, for medicinal purposes by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
