Peracetic Acid Market: Drivers & Challenges

Market Driver:

  • Rapid Increasing Demand for Potable Water Across The Globe

Peracetic Acid is environmentally benign chemical and ideally suitable for the treatment of water in different applications. It emits oxygen at lower temperatures than other bleaching agents and its by-product is not harmful to the environment. The ever-increasing demand for potable water around the globe with limited overall resources is driving the market of Peracetic Acid to implement in the wastewater treatment process. Thus, increasing water demand across the globe is anticipated to drive the market for Peracetic Acid.. 

  • Benefits of Peracetic Acid Over Other Substitute Biocides

Chlorine was the disinfectant preference for many years. But it had severe disadvantages. Gas leaks of the chemical can have adverse effects on the surroundings. Also, it posed a grave threat to aquatic flora and fauna. Same goes with Sodium Hypochlorite. It is toxic and faces off-gassing issues. Peracetic acid is safe and does not possess an immediate threat to aquatic life. Furthermore, it does not degrade into harmful by-products thus causing little or no harm to immediate environments. It possesses more oxidation potential than other alternatives except for UV technology. Thus, benefits of peracetic acid over other substitutes Biocides is expected to drive the product market during the forecasted period.
