Hydrogen Peroxide is a colorless liquid widely used as an oxidizer, bleaching agent and disinfectant. Hydrogen peroxide is the simplest form of peroxide constitute only hydrogen and oxygen in the world which has application in almost all the types of food and beverages. Hydrogen Peroxide is in use for various purposes in Americas and Europe for many decades, and its market is still seeking new investments due to growing demand in these regions. Hydrogen Peroxide is initially used to ease the preparation of paper which is nowadays the biggest reason for Industrial Hydrogen Peroxide market growth. Almost all the paper and pulp manufacturers use hydrogen peroxide as an ingredient in the manufacturing process. It is useful in a variety of oxidation possibilities and pH ranges in which it can be utilized as an oxidizer. In the acid pH ranges, uncatalyzed hydrogen peroxide is a moderate oxidizer, but when catalyzed with "Iron" it becomes a strong oxidizer, similarly in the alkaline pH range, hydrogen peroxide can compete with hypochlorite as an oxidizer. In last decade Industrial Hydrogen Peroxide made its appearance in APEJ region and succeeded in almost all the countries because of its uses. India, UAE, and China are the most growing market of Industrial Hydrogen Peroxide in APEJ region. Hydrogen peroxide is used to make sodium perborate and sodium percarbonate, which are further utilized as a bleaching agent in detergents. Industrial Hydrogen Peroxide market is expected to witness an escalating demand among the consumers because of its broad use and increasing presence paper and pulp industry throughout the world.
Industrial Hydrogen Peroxide: Market Dynamics
Industrial Hydrogen Peroxide market is driven by the growing adaptation in paper and pulp industry. Companies all around the world are getting attracted towards Industrial Hydrogen Peroxide because of easy to use features and great usage which is driving the market. Use in making detergent bleaches, textile bleaching and purification of water are giving a boon to Industrial Hydrogen Peroxide market. Countries like India and China are the manufacturing hub for Industrial Hydrogen Peroxide and thus a promising market for Industrial Hydrogen Peroxide. Hence, Industrial Hydrogen Peroxide market is expected to grow during the forecast period due to its versatile benefits.
However, Industrial Hydrogen Peroxide comes along with many restraints. The regulations imposed by OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) regarding industrial exposure of Hydrogen Peroxide will act as a constraint to Industrial Hydrogen Peroxide market growth. Stringent regulations imposed by regulatory agencies such as FDA, EPA, and REACH can also hinder the market growth. However, the biggest restraint faced by Industrial Hydrogen Peroxide market is the health hazards resulting from exposure to hydrogen peroxide. Continued and too much contact with the chemical can apparently affect various parts of the human body such as eyes, gastrointestinal tract, and cause irritation to the skin, due to which regulatory agencies came up with stringent regulations. Hydrogen peroxide is a carcinogenic element, which is the key restraining factor of this market.
