Chlorine Disinfectant Market

2020 Analysis and Review of Chlorine Disinfectant Market by Application - Drinking water, Swimming Pool Water, Industrial Wastewater, Textile Bleaching, Hospital, and Others for 2020 - 2030

Industrial Wastewater to Attract Greater Attention of Stakeholders

Market players continue to target industrial wastewater, wherein chlorine disinfectants are utilized either in elemental form (chlorine gas) or in compounds - liquid sodium hypochlorite solution or solid calcium hypochlorite. By 2029, application of chlorine disinfectant in industrial wastewater applications will translate to over US$ 2 Bn. Chlorine disinfectants are also finding use in textile bleaching, as they are significantly effective at whitening fabrics and provide germicidal activity at usage concentrations. This study further states that, manufacturers will also glean relevant returns from swimming pool water applications. 

Market Players to Firm their Grip on East Asia

East Asia will remain the epicenter of growth opportunities in chlorine disinfectant market, owing to top-line growth of industry-adjacent sectors such as water treatment, and healthcare. Driven by rising cases of nosocomial infections, governments in countries - China, and India - are substantially spending in healthcare infrastructure. Going forward, North America’s chlorine disinfectant is registering rapid CAGR, and is expected to value around US$ 1 Bn in 2030. The market growth is primarily attributable to uptight regulations for surface disinfectants to prevent HAIs. 

Unfolding Potential Avenues in Healthcare Industry

Maintaining optimum hygiene and preventing disease contagion are paramount aspects in healthcare settings, which leverage chlorine disinfectants for several applications - cleaning and disinfecting workplaces and equipment in medical laboratories, avoiding bacterial contamination of patients’ injuries, and disinfecting kidney dialysis equipment. In addition, chlorine disinfectants ensure safe water for drinking, bathing, and other patients’ necessities.

Hospital cafeterias and kitchens rely on chlorine disinfectants in order to eliminate hazardous food-borne bacteria such as E. coli, and Salmonella on food preparation surfaces.


How Growth will Unfold

Capturing about 60% of total market stack, solid/granular chlorine disinfectants continue to attract huge stakeholders’ investments. FMI underlines that, the number will increase at a healthy pace through 2030. Liquid chlorine disinfectants are also generating significant total returns to shareholders, and will hit the billion-mark during the latter half of forecast period. End-use industries are leveraging an even combination of both, solid and liquid chlorine disinfectants, to complement the effectiveness of disinfection in various applications. Market players must, thus, target these two forms of chlorine disinfectants to sustain their competitiveness.
