The global peracetic acid market is estimated to reach USD 783.3 Million by 2020, registering a CAGR of 8.33% between 2015 and 2020. The market is driven by its unique properties such as delivery of optimum performance, emission of safe by-products, long shelf life, and slow thermal degradation. This is the prime factor responsible for the high demand of peracetic acid.

Peracetic acid is used in various applications such as food, healthcare, water treatment, and pulp & paper, and others. In 2015, the food application segment accounted for the largest market share among all the applications, in terms of value, followed by healthcare, water treatment, and pulp & paper applications. The market in the food application segment is projected to witness the highest CAGR between 2015 and 2020, in terms of volume.

The different types of peracetic acid considered in the report are disinfectant, sanitizer, sterilants, and others (oxidant, polymerization catalyst). Disinfectant is currently the dominant type in the market, while sterilant is estimated to witness the highest CAGR between 2015 and 2020 Peracetic acid is a water soluble liquid and leaves no residue after rinsing. It has no harmful health or environmental effects. These are among the major reasons for the increasing demand of peracetic acid as sterilants. The rising demand for peracetic acid is also driven by improved acceptance for usage of the same in countries such as India, China, and Brazil.
