Market Dynamics

Bronopol is proven to be beneficial for the water treatment

The global increase in demand for potable water is a key factor driving the market growth. Bronopol is widely used in several water treatment plants to meet this growing demand as it kills various types of bacteria present in the water and makes it suitable for drinking. As water is an integral part of industrial and residential activities, it further boosts product demand. In addition, industrial water systems are potential environments for bacterial growth, and bronopol helps prevent contamination from corrosion and slime in industrial water circulation equipment. In addition, rising water consumption across the globe due to the increasing population has resulted in increased demand for bronopol due to its application in wastewater treatment systems. Increased health awareness among end users regarding pathogens and bacterial growth has increased in recent years, which in turn is expected to positively impact the global demand for bronopol.

Growing Applications of Bronopol in Various Industries

Growing emphasis on improving the production processes and workplace hygiene conditions will be one of the major drivers driving the demand for bronopol in the industrial sector. Moreover, the demand for bronopol in cleaning products is expected to remain high for the treatment of healthcare-associated infections in the healthcare sector.

Paints and coatings applications of bronopol are also expected to present growth opportunities owing to increasing demand for coatings in new construction and building maintenance applications. In the oil and gas sector, rising hydraulic fracturing techniques used to drill shale gas formations to prevent corrosion and production problems that may be caused by bacterial contamination will support growth.

Despite the increasing use of bronopol in various industries, some concerns about availability and safety are expected to recede in the coming years. The ongoing global economic slowdown is one of the major restraints for the bronopol industry in developed markets such as Europe and North America. Bronopol demand is likely to be impacted by rising raw material prices and complex compliance structures in the coming years.
