Hydrogen Peroxide Market Overview:


The global hydrogen peroxide market was valued at USD 4096.1 million, in the preview period. It is estimated that the hydrogen peroxide market value would increase about USD 5,499.99 million by 2027 and the CAGR value would grow at 4.3%.


Hydrogen peroxide is a non-toxin transparent chemical to the environment that readily dissolves in water. It is effective at oxidising a wide range of organic and inorganic compounds, including skin and metals. It is commonly accessible in pharmacies in concentrations of 3 and 6 wt % for consumers. China presently produces more than 30% of the global hydrogen peroxide supply. In the production of paper and wood pulp, hydrogen peroxide is widely employed. These they are the two industries that use the most hydrogen peroxide. In the preview period, the combined market share of these two industries for hydrogen peroxide topped at 50%. Each year the hydrogen peroxide market share is growing consistently due to various growth factors and the increasing application opportunities.


Covid-19 Impact Analysis


Due to the strict lockdown requirements, the pandemic period was a difficult time for the hydrogen peroxide market growth. When the supply of raw materials was interrupted for an extended period due to travel restrictions, the market was put under pressure. Manufacturing and other industrial units suspended operations until the lockdown period was lifted, affecting production rates and resulting in a decline in the growth statistics. Customers were unable to get the products on time, thus affecting the supply chain process further.


Having recognised the pandemic's loss, the key players are attempting to make up for it by implementing new tactics and plans and tackling the challenges. To keep the market's growth stable, future product development and enhancements are made. Furthermore, the market is expected to grow at a rate of 4.3% in the forecast period.


Market Dynamics


Key Market Drivers

The primary growth  drivers of global hydrogen peroxide market are the paper and pulp industries. Demand for and growth in the hydrogen peroxide market are driven by industries that employ chemicals extensively in their manufacturing processes. This chemical is required by the pulp and paper sectors because it is effective in bleaching pulp to achieve the desired bright white colour. Hydrogen peroxide is also useful for removing ink from paper so that it can be reused. There are many businesses who are no longer allowed to use chlorine-based compounds in their manufacturing processes. Hence, they are shifting to the implementation of  hydrogen peroxide because it's a safer and less expensive solution.

Market Challenges
