NEW YORK, Sept. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Healthcare market to grow fastest
The healthcare market for I&I cleaning chemicals in the US comprises almost half of demand for all institutional and government markets due to its many facilities and intensive use of cleaning chemicals. A serious push to reduce healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) will strengthen demand in nearly all product categories, making the healthcare market the fastest growing market for I&I cleaning chemicals. On the other hand, a decrease in the number and capacity of hospitals in favor of smaller outpatient facilities will hinder growth, as hospitals are the most intensive users of cleaning chemicals.
Food trucks & fast casual restaurants drive demand
Growth in I&I chemicals will be fueled by further expansion of foodservice revenues and the continued increases in the number of establishments, particularly food trucks and fast casual restaurants. Concerns about food safety and public perception of cleanliness will drive advances, although some business owners will strive to reduce expenses by eliminating wasted chemicals. Dispensers that automatically dilute the product or produce a premeasured quantity will continue to penetrate the market and limit growth by preventing excess usage of cleaning chemicals.
Milder fragrances & formulations
Cleaning chemical formulations utilized in janitorial applications will tend toward gentler fragrances and milder formulations when possible, particularly in facilities heavily visited by the public. Growth opportunities will exist for I&I chemicals marketed as natural or containing plant-based ingredients, although this shift will not be as marked as within the household market. Multipurpose products that reduce labor will be favored, as will strong concentrates that require less storage space and infrequent replenishment.
Drug-resistant bacteria concerns affect product mix
An emerging concern in these materials is drug-resistant bacteria. Some biocides are under scrutiny by both regulatory bodies and the general public. In particular, triclosan is currently under review by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) due to potential health effects. Widespread usage of triclosan-based hand cleansers is a possible contributor to the emergence of drug-resistant bacteria.
