Peracetic products are basically classified as distilled grade and solution grade products, based on the type and number of catalysts used. While solution grade products dominated peracetic acid market in 2016, distilled grade products are also on their way to experience a renewed traction over 2017-2024. These products are used heavily across the F&B, wastewater treatment, medical, paper & pulp, and agricultural sectors.

Speaking along similar lines, the F&B sector exerted its dominance on the overall peracetic acid industry in 2016, and is expected to grow at a remarkable rate over the years ahead. This growth can be credited to a plethora of factors, including the massive growth of the F&B sector, changing consumer preferences, and the rising consumer consciousness regarding hygiene and sanitization. Peracetic acid products act as a highly effective sterilant against viruses, bacteria, yeasts, and fungi. The brewing industry is also a primary business sphere incorporating the usage of peracetic acid products, owing to the fact they ensure protection against microbial contamination.

The escalating F&B and paper & pulp sectors will be the key driving forces behind the development of North America peracetic acid market. Estimates claim this regional market to grow at a substantial rate over 2017-2024, having held a valuation of USD 176.3 million in 2016. The region has been experiencing an appreciative growth in the water treatment equipment industry, which will majorly stimulate North America peracetic acid market.

A vital instance of the wastewater treatment sector development in North America is the recent inauguration of a wastewater treatment facility that is supposed to be constructed in Sunland Park, about five miles away from the Mexican border. The facility, inaugurated by CRRUA (Camino Real Rural Utility Authority), is an extended aeration wastewater treatment plant that is projected to provide services to around 2,000 homes. An increase in the number of such initiatives is likely to provide a positive impetus to the regional peracetic acid industry.

Peracetic acid products are infamous for causing irritation on the skin, in the eyes, and even in the respiratory system. Recognizing the potential hazards from long-term product usage, including permanent lung damage, the EPA has published the required product exposure guidelines that have to be mandatorily followed. Manufacturers have been striving to develop sustainable products to avoid long-term health hazards, thereby augmenting the scope of peracetic acid market in the future.
