Global Chlorine Dioxide Market to Reach US$ 1,265.90 Million by 2027, Propelled by Increasing Product Applications

Published on Mar 04, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Chlorine Dioxide Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," finds that the global chlorine dioxide market reached a value of US$ 945.7 Million in 2021. Chlorine dioxide, with the chemical formula CIO2, is a highly volatile compound usually manufactured from sodium chlorite and sodium chlorate. It appears as a reddish-yellow gas with an unpleasant odor similar to chlorine at room temperature. It is less corrosive than chlorine, more effective over a broad pH range, and neutralizes phenols and their derivatives. It is also widely used as a disinfectant, antimicrobial agent, odor control agent, and selective oxidizer in various industrial processes. As a result, chlorine dioxide finds extensive applications in industrial water treatment, food and beverage (F&B), medical, pulp and paper, and oil and gas sectors.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Chlorine Dioxide Market Trends:

The increasing chlorine dioxide applications across various industries represent the primary factor driving the market growth. For instance, chlorine dioxide is widely used to disinfect drinking water and treat wastewater to remove turbidity and destroy bacteria and viruses present in water. Besides this, it is extensively utilized as a bleaching agent in the pulp and paper sector to manufacture paper with high brightness by chemically processing wood pulp. Besides this, there has also been a growing product usage in the food and beverage industry for controlling pathogenic and spoilage microorganisms, poultry processing, and washing vegetables and fruits. Furthermore, the development of biocide technology based on chlorine dioxide for treating industrial cooling water systems and providing enhanced cost-effectiveness, real-time monitoring, and safety interlocks has accelerated the product adoption rate. Apart from this, the surging utilization of chlorine dioxide to sterilize medical equipment and laboratory has catalyzed market growth. Other factors, including the escalating demand for potable water, rapid industrialization, favorable government initiatives, technological advancements, and extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are also providing a positive thrust to the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 1,265.90 Million by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 4.90% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
