KEY FACTORS SHAPING CHLORINE DISINFECTANT MARKET
Depleting Fresh Water Resources & Increasing Emphasis on Water Treatment
Over the last few decades, rapidly declining fresh water resources due to misuse of water has increased the already severe water stress across the globe. To avoid exuberating and to overcome such a situation, governments across the globe are implementing stringent regulations regarding treatment of dischargeable water and increasing its reusability in the process. Furthermore, governments are highly focused on improving municipal water facilities in urban and rural areas. Such developments for industrial and domestic/ municipal water treatment are expected to create high demand for water & wastewater treatment chemicals such as chlorine disinfectants over the forecast period.
Distinct Advantages of Chlorine as a Disinfectant
Chlorine is one the most widely used disinfectant. It is widely applicable and effective for the elimination of pathogenic microorganisms. Chlorine can be easily applied, measured, and controlled. It is fairly persistent and comparatively cheap. Use of chlorine disinfectants for several applications offer multiple advantages as follows-
- Chlorine disinfectant is effective and reliable against a wide spectrum of pathogens present in water or any other surface.
- Flexible dosing allows significant control over disinfection as wastewater characteristics vary from time to time.
- The chlorine residual that remains in the discharged wastewater can harmful even after preliminary treatment and also offers a measure of effectiveness.
- Chlorine can eliminate noxious odors while disinfecting.
Increasing Demand from Hospital Facilities
Increasing emphasis on cleanliness in hospitals is boosting the demand for chlorine disinfectants. Chlorine disinfectant is used for applications in hospitals such as:
- Cleaning and disinfecting work surfaces and equipment in medical laboratories
- Preventing bacterial contamination of patients burns and wounds
