In recent times, COVID-19 has raised an implication for the healthcare sector to ensure optimal hygiene of healthcare centers along with medical equipment. This helps in preventing hospital acquired infections (HAI).  Amid COVID-19 outbreak, preventing spread of disease contagion and maintaining optimum hygiene is paramount in hospitals. Owing to this, sodium hypochlorite, a chlorine-based disinfectant, is widely being used for cleaning and disinfecting the hospitals and medical laboratories.

In addition, chlorine disinfectants ensure safe water for drinking. Hospital kitchens and cafeterias are dependent on chlorine disinfectants to eliminate the hazardous food-borne bacteria such as salmonella and E.coli on food preparation surfaces. This, in turn, is enabling broader use of chlorine disinfectants. Due to these factors, the global chlorine disinfectant market is expected to cross US$ 3 Bn in 2023, increasing at a promising growth rate.

The chlorine disinfectant market will continue to witness high demand from industrial wastewater, textile leaching, swimming pools, and hospitals in the near future. One of the prime segments of the chlorine disinfectant market is industrial water treatment. Chlorine is widely used due to its property of effortlessly killing pathogens present inside contaminated or infected water.

Yearly, approximately 58 million metric tons of chlorine is produced across the world for its primary and tertiary sectors. Due to its properties of being an exceptional oxidizing agent, disinfectant and bleaching agent, chlorine has large-scale industrial applications. Owing to this, the chlorine disinfectant market is expected to grow promisingly in the near term.

APAC Continues to offer Lucrative Opportunities for the Market Players

APAC will remain the epicenter of growth in the chlorine disinfectant market, due to the top-line growth of industries such as healthcare and water treatment. Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia, and other populated countries have a noticeable contribution to the region’s population. With the expansion of population, demand for construction buildings for commercial and residential purposes is catapulting at an unprecedented rate. Owing to this, the construction industry is demanding chlorine disinfectant in abundance. Thus, the market for chlorine disinfectant will gain considerable traction.

Demand for chlorine disinfectant is witnessing a huge rise in APAC, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The governments of various countries in APAC have ordered the municipal authorities to use chlorine as a disinfectant. This has changed the dynamics of chlorine disinfectant in the regional market place.

Industrial Wastewater to Remain Primary Application Area

Leading players in the market are concentrating on industrial wastewater, where chlorine disinfectants are commonly used in various forms such as solid calcium hypochlorite or liquid sodium hypochlorite solutions. Chlorine disinfectant applications in industrial wastewater are poised to account for revenue worth US$ 2 Bn.

This growth is attributed to the increasing use of chlorine disinfectants as it strikes an ideal balance between environmentally friendly treatment for waste streams and low cost in comparison with other chemical compounds. Owing to these properties of chlorine disinfectant, the market is expected to gain traction in the near future.
