Hydrogen peroxide is a strong oxidant, a colorless transparent liquid, the use of a wide range. In the chemical industry, hydrogen peroxide used as a raw material for the production of sodium perborate, sodium percarbonate, and peroxyacetic acid, and sodium chlorite. The pharmaceutical industry used it as bactericides, disinfectants, and oxidants for the production of Fumei double insecticides and 40l antibacterial agents. It can use in plating solutions and bleaching.
The global Hydrogen peroxide market expected to anticipate the influential demand in the forecast period from 2020-2027. Due to its property, it called the cleanest chemical product as it does not cause any pollution. Therefore, many manufacturers have increased their production load of hydrogen peroxide.
Moreover, Hydrogen peroxide is a sustainable, resource-efficient chemical that uses in oxidation reactions, bleaching processes in the pulp, paper, and textile industries, wastewater treatment, waste gas treatment, and various disinfection applications. After the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide, only oxygen and water are produced, which is one of the cleanest and most versatile chemicals.
Additionally, various industries use hydrogen peroxide products as raw materials, and the three-stage continuous resin adsorption process used to produce electronic-grade hydrogen peroxide. The process is simple, easy to operate, mild production conditions, non-polluting, low cost, and the purity of the product can reach the electronic standards of semiconductor equipment.
Furthermore, hydrogen peroxide used for a variety of purposes, such as bleaching agents in the pulp and paper industry, bleach, oxidant, and desizing agent in the textile industry. Deinking in waste paper recycling, wastewater treatment in environmental protection, and also used in hydroxylation and oxidation reactions in the chemical industry. It can also use in smoke and contaminated soils (bioremediation), detergent and detergent industries, pickling of metal surfaces, and bleaching agents for oils, waxes, fibers, and other natural products.
The hydrogen peroxide is the cleanest chemical as it produces no pollution to the environment. It has zero-emission, and eco-friendly properties have the demand for the global hydrogen peroxide market. Therefore, hydrogen peroxide is widely used in various industries to remove chlorine compounds, electronics, paper & pulp, and mining.
The hydrogen peroxide market is growing owing to its cost-effectiveness, which allows it uses in many industries and with no pollutants in it. Hydroperoxide and its products are also very clean and are effectively used in the aseptic packaging industry, electronics, and also used for healthy and sustainable agriculture purposes.
Based on Product, the global Hydrogen peroxide market segmented into Disinfectant, Bleaching, Oxidant, and Other. The oxidants and oxidization industry will dominate the market share of the global hydrogen peroxide market in the forecast period from 2020-2027. In the wake of, Hydrogen peroxide is a bleaching agent used to treat natural and synthetic fibers (cotton, wool, silk, linen, rayon). The use of hydrogen peroxide not only allows the fibers to achieve higher brightness but also maintains their mechanical properties.
One of the advantages of hydrogen peroxide over chlorine-based bleaches is that it does not affect modern dyes. Hydrogen peroxide grades have excellent bleaching effects and can use in hard surface cleaners, pre-stain removal products, carpet cleaners, and other non-destructive color bleaching products.
Based on the application, the global Hydrogen peroxide market classified into Pulp & Paper, Chemical Synthesis, Wastewater Treatment, Mining, Food & Beverage, Cosmetics & Healthcare, Textiles, and Other. The Pulp & Paper segment has dominated the application market of the global hydrogen peroxide market. Hydrogen peroxide is a versatile bleaching agent in the pulp and paper industry. It can use in chemical pulp bleaching processes, mechanical pulp bleaching (as the sole or primary bleaching chemical), and for ink removal (deinking) in paper recycling. The bleaching conditions of hydrogen peroxide can be adjusted over a wide range to suit the constraints of the equipment or a given temperature level.
Moreover, for paper recycling, when fibers reused to make printing paper or thin paper, the removal of printing ink is the primary goal, and the removal of brightness and color are secondary goals. Fiber whitening is mainly achieved by hydrogen peroxide. The alkaline environment generated during the repulping of waste paper is the ideal condition for the simultaneous use of hydrogen peroxide. A small amount of hydrogen peroxide is sufficient to improve brightness and prevent alkaline yellowing. In subsequent bleaching steps, such as in a diffuser, the brightness will further increase.
Based on geography, the global Hydrogen peroxide market size segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa. The North American region has dominated the global Hydrogen peroxide market in 2019. Owing to increasing order for hydrogen peroxide for the agriculture industry to improve the quality of the crop, and emerging demand for the pulp & paper industry will fuel the market share of the global hydrogen peroxide market in the forecast period from 2020-2027.
Companies such Solvay, Evonik Industries AG, Mitsubishi Gas Chemical Company, Inc., Arkema Group, Kemira Oyj, Kingboard Chemical Holdings Ltd, Aditya Birla Chemicals Limited, PeroxyChem LLC and others are the key players in global hydrogen peroxide market.
