COVID-19 Analysis:

The COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the demand for hydrogen peroxide from a wide range of end-use sectors, including pulp & paper, chemical synthesis, food processing, textile, water & wastewater treatment, and electronics & semiconductor. COVID-19 affected the paper and pulp industry since it uses hydrogen peroxide as a bleaching chemical. In contrast, it is used as an oxidant in the mining sector. As a result of the pandemic, several industries were compelled to temporarily halt operations, prompting the industry to restrict the use of bleaching chemicals and oxidants, cutting demand for hydrogen peroxide. Rising demand from the paper and pulp industry, as well as rising use of hydrogen peroxide in various end-use sectors are expected to drive market growth.

China is the world's largest manufacturing hub and the top raw material provider for many sectors, and disruptions in the country's operations are harming several enterprises from all other nations that rely on its manufacturing industry. The global market breakdown caused by the spread of COVID-19 is having an impact on the growth of the market for hydrogen peroxide used in disinfection/sterilization applications. To treat or prevent COVID-19, some patients use asthma nebulizers to inhale hydrogen peroxide. The hydrogen peroxide mouth rinse had no effect on the intraoral virus load. Only one baseline specimen had a replicating virus. In countries such as the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, hydrogen peroxide is used as a bleaching agent in foods such as wheat flour, edible oil, and egg white. Owing to the importance of hygiene following the COVID-19, hydrogen peroxide is primarily used as an antibacterial agent in food, such as milk, and as a sterilizing agent for food packaging materials. Consumer demand was impacted by health concerns and consumers were more concerned about food safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. Sales initially increased as customers' concerns about food safety and their health pushed purchases. Furthermore, increased sales of healthcare & personal care, food processing items in China via for particular medicinal needs have created momentum in the region for hydrogen peroxide market. Health problems associated with long-term exposure to hydrogen peroxide, as well as poor circumstances induced by COVID-19's influence, are impeding market expansion.
