  • Published Date: October 14, 2019

Hypochlorite Bleaches Market size is slated to reach USD 340 million by 2025; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

The market must witness significant growth from 2019 to 2025 owing to rising concerns of infectious diseases and usage of these products for sanitizing, disinfection and bleaching purposes. Hypochlorite bleaches destroys wide range of algae, fungi, bacteria and viruses which should be used with caution within specific permissible limit range.

Requirement of antibacterial properties in industrial units to drive calcium hypochlorite demand

Global calcium hypochlorite bleaches market may grow significantly at over 3% by 2025. Calcium hypochlorite is widely used as chlorine compound as it is effective against bacteria and viruses. The product is used to disinfect swimming pools, spas, and hot tub water as it kills microorganisms which poses a risk to human health and to prevent contamination. It is also very effective for treating lakes, wells, ponds, controlling and removing algae in water bodies filters, reservoirs and other water treatment equipment.

Hypochlorite bleaches are used as a biocide in hydraulic fracturing water treatment in the oil & gas industry as it removes bacteria from water and proppants injected to the well bore. Paper & pulp mills, pharmaceutical plant units, power plants, automotive assemblage facilities and mines industrial units and sections need disinfected water as a part of their manufacturing process. Thus, calcium hypochlorite is used in many of these industries to provide sanitized water for coating, washing, rinsing, spraying, or cooling during processing.

Browse key industry insights spread across 230 pages with 194 market data tables and 27 figures & charts from the report, “Hypochlorite bleaches Market Size by Product (Sodium Hypochlorite, Calcium Hypochlorite, Potassium Hypochlorite, Lithium Hypochlorite), By Application (Water Treatment, Textiles, Residential Pool Treatment, Laundry Bleaching, Disinfectants, Paper & Pulp), Regional Outlook, Growth Potential, Price Trends, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2019 – 2025” in detail along with the table of contents:

Disinfectant & decontamination properties to drive product demand in healthcare units

High prevalence of hospital acquired infections and the need for disinfection with increasing use of surgical units is anticipated to foster the market. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in every 30 hospital patients go through from at least one healthcare-associated contamination every year. Global hypochlorite bleaches market from disinfectants expected a consumption at over 25 kilo tons in 2018. Chlorine releasing agents such as sodium hypochlorite are widely used for the decontamination of hard surfaces and blood discharges containing the human immunodeficiency virus or hepatitis B virus.

The application of disinfectant solutions in hospitals and clinics provides protection against contamination and lowers the risk of getting hospital-acquired infection. High concentrations of sodium hypochlorite show substantial levels of sporicidal activity. These solutions are required to maintain a sanitation and hygiene levels in hospitals which in turn lowers the risk of HAI’s. The most widespread sodium hypochlorite products in the U.S. are dispatch hospital cleaner disinfectant with bleach, sterilox high level disinfectant system and clorox germicidal wipes.

Food industries continuously requires chemicals to sanitize and fumigate contact surfaces. These chemicals offer essential and mandatory solutions to ensure the safety of food products free from bacteria’s which further cause foodborne diseases.

The food industry often uses sanitizers in the form of hypochlorite bleaches owing to its effectiveness, low cost and ease of manufacturing. Sodium hypochlorite is used as food sanitation solution as it is most effective in killing microorganisms with a typical 6% chlorine concentration.

China hypochlorite bleaches market to be driven by packaging applications

Paper & paperboards finds application in various industries ranging from paper tissues, stationaries, newspapers and packaging. China paper and paperboard production relies on used paper which includes old corrugated containers, old magazines and newspapers, and mixed paper grades as feedstock.

China calcium hypochlorite bleaches industry was valued at over USD 1 million in 2018. China’s paper packing market is increasing owing to growing e-commerce parcel market, decreasing pulp prices and improving population alertness regarding ecological friendly packaging. Calcium hypochlorite is used in recycling of paper as it aids in removal of its ink and to bleach paper pulp to attain desire degree of whiteness.

In pulp and paper manufacturing process, the presence of water, organic material and heat is processed on a continuous basis, which results to microbial contamination. The addition of calcium hypochlorite is intended to eliminate any form of biofouling and contamination which further eliminates spot reduction in paper films.

The hypochlorite bleaches companies are focusing towards joint ventures to expand their product portfolio globally. Manufacturers are also indulged in partnerships to strengthen their product range. Some key players include ANSA McAL Chemicals, Carus, Groupe Somavrac, Organic industries, VYONVA, Electrolytic Technologies, Inoyn, TOSOH, American Elements, Arkema, Aditya Birla Chemicals and Odyssey Manufacturing.
