On the basis of end-use industry, the market is divided into healthcare, food and beverage, water treatment, pulp and paper, and others. Healthcare segment is the fastest growing segment with the highest CAGR. In healthcare, peracetic acid acts similarly to oxidant biocides in inhibiting protein synthesis and other intracellular processes in bacteria and fungus, such as cell membrane and wall metabolic functions. Peracetic acid is used for disinfection in health care and food processing sectors. It is excellent in killing microscopic organisms and is used to eliminate bacteria, fungus, yeasts, spores, and viruses. Region-wise, the market is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. The peracetic acid market share is analyzed across all significant regions and countries.

Global Peracetic Acid Market by Region

Asia-Pacific is projected to register a robust growth during the forecast period. In the Asia-Pacific region, the main usage of peracetic acid is to treat influents to eliminate bacteria and oxidize other microorganisms. Use of peracetic acid in food packaging has a longer shelf life and lower transportation costs and is used for milk products, low acid and high acid drinks. Peracetic acid has been shown to be useful in preventing microbial contamination of seafood and in keeping seafood fresher for extended periods of time.

Global Peracetic Acid Market by Application

Disinfectant segment dominated the global peracetic acid market in terms of revenue, in 2021. Peracetic acid is used as a disinfectant in chemicals that kill pathogens and other hazardous microbes. It can be used to deactivate a wide range of harmful bacteria. It also renders viruses and spores inactive. Peracetic acid inactivate gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, fungi, and yeasts in less than 5 minutes at less than 100 ppm. Peracetic acid disinfectants are being used more widely in public places, transportation, hospitals, nursing homes, wastewater treatment plants, and even ordinary houses across the world to reduce viral bacterial, fungal infection.

Global Peracetic Acid Market by End-use Industry

Food and Beverage segment dominated the global peracetic acid market in 2021. Peracetic acid is used as an antimicrobial agent in meat, poultry, and seafood. It is used as a disinfectant in the food processing sector because it can easily kill bacteria, fungi, yeasts, spores, and pathogens in minutes. The peracetic acid is used to keep the food and beverage industry's working environment clean to prevent food contamination.
