Calcium Peroxide Market Trends

  • Growing demands for environmentally friendly bleaching agents in various industries to drive market growth

Calcium peroxide is an inorganic peroxide that decomposes when it encounters hydrous material, releasing oxygen. CaO2 is its chemical formula, calcium dioxide, and calcium superoxide. Calcium peroxide is a colorless, odorless chemical. It is available in powdered or granular form. Calcium peroxide is widely used in the food, agrochemical, and personal care industries for its bleaching, disinfecting, and deodorizing properties. The increasing demand for ecologically friendly bleaching chemicals in various sectors is a prominent trend that drives the calcium peroxide market CAGR. Calcium peroxide is a green alternative to standard bleaching agents as it decomposes into water and oxygen, leaving no toxic residues behind. The increased consumer awareness of the detrimental effects of chlorine-based bleaching agents on the environment is boosting demand for calcium peroxide in the pulp and paper sector, textile industry, and water treatment plants.

The agreement between Solvay SA and Chemours Company in 2020 to create sustainable hydrogen peroxide-based solutions for the pulp and paper sector is a current market development in this trend. Solvay's hydrogen peroxide technology will be paired with Chemours' Opteon stabilizer technology to offer the industry a more sustainable and efficient bleaching solution. The growing need for food-grade calcium peroxide in the food sector is another important trend in the calcium peroxide market. Calcium peroxide is a food additive and bleaching agent used in various products such as flour, starch, and cheese. The increasing requirement for processed foods and consumer awareness of food safety and quality contribute to the demand for food-grade calcium peroxide.

Moreover, the main application of calcium peroxide is to give oxygen externally for horticulture and agriculture. Calcium peroxide is the most thermally stable inorganic product and an efficient and adaptable solid source of hydrogen peroxide. Growing environmental concerns about soil remediation, oil spill recovery, and increased crop establishment employing seed pelleting with calcium peroxide will likely drive calcium peroxide market revenue.
