Key factors expected to shape the peracetic acid market in Asia Pacific during the next eight years
A better alternative to chlorine as an oxidant agent for industrial cleaning, textile industry and in
other purification purposes. Peracetic acid is an effective disinfectant and finds robust use in
various industries in the form of purifiers, cleaners and as sanitizing agents. In addition, growing
demand for peracetic acid as sanitizing agents in packaged food and vegetables for prevention of
microbial contamination is likely to play a major role in stimulating the market growth in Asia
Pacific. Peracetic acid contains properties of bleaching agent, easy environmental degradation, and
non-toxicity. Hence, making the product a safe sanitizer that can be used in consumable products.
In contrast, high volatility of PPA above 17% and associated risks with logistics can restrain the
growth of the market. Likewise, adverse side-effects on health due to excessive exposure of
peracetic acid on the surface of the skin, through oral intake or inhalation.
Based on PPA grade, demand for PAA- grade above 15% is expected remain high as compared to
other PAA grades. While, growth in demand for other PAA grades will be sluggish during the
forecast period. By 2016 end, the PAA- grade above 15% segment is estimated to occupy for over
46% value share of the market and is anticipated to gain 130 BPS over 2025.
