Specialty Oxidants Market overview

The specialty oxidants market size is estimated to grow at a high CAGR of 5.7% during the predicted period.

Specialty oxidants are the most strong oxidizing agents that are used in a variety of applications like bleaching and coating during the manufacture of specialty pulp and paper, textile, healthcare, and personal care products. Some of the specialty oxidants consist of sodium chlorate, which is an effective defoliant or desiccant used for agricultural industry applications, hydrogen peroxide, which is used for pulp bleaching in water treatment and food disinfection. Specialty oxidants are widely used as a raw material for the production of propylene oxide. It is otherwise acceptable in the hydrogen propylene oxide process. Therefore the rising demand for specialty oxidants is increased in various sectors such as toothpaste, sterilization, sanitizers, bleaching and others. Specialty Oxidant Market growth provides a comprehensive analysis of the materials and chemicals industry; it analyzes and identifies changes in market conditions set to impact future business decisions by analyzing.

Covid-19 analysis

The outbreak of the Nobel virus COVID-19 pandemic had a massive impact on the on-trade segment and industries globally. There are no such industries that didn’t face a negative impact due to this pandemic except for the healthcare and medical industries. Due to strict regulations implemented by the government, there were partial lockdowns and shuts down all across the world. Due to the lack of transportation facilities, the supply chain was disrupted; hence there was a heavy demand but low supply, which negatively impacted the market growth and economy of the country. Manufacturers understand the strategies to revive from the current situation by means of improving their sales channels as well as product innovation. The duration of the virus outbreak remains a major factor in evaluating the overall impact of the pandemic. Somehow the global Specialty Oxidant market is expected to stabilize after 2021. The restrictions on the import and export of goods and lockdown measures taken by governments are key challenges exporters face during this pandemic.

Chief Factors Existing In The Market

Key Market Drivers The Specialty Oxidant market is driven by the rising demand for specialty oxidants for the healthcare, paper & pulp, wastewater treatment, and personal care industries. Specialty oxidants are broadly used in wastewater treatment facilities, and it prevails over the increasing problem with the presence of toxic chemicals and provides disinfection. The specialty chemicals demand increases with the rising use of flexible packaging across the industrial, residential, and commercial levels.The increase in the adoption of more advanced and innovative solutions, as well as with the help of the specialty oxidants for healthcare & personal care products, including household and cleaning products, creates a great opportunity for the Specialty Oxidant market. On 9th Jan 2020, BASF SE built up its business related to water-soluble polyacrylates for use in household and commercial cleaning products and industrial applications, which gave the advantage to expand capacity in specialty chemicals and oxidants.

 Market ChallengesThe less availability and decrease in the number of functions of the chlorine bleaching agents during the estimated period is the major challenging factor for Specialty Oxidant market growth. Some other issues like damage to your eye, skin, and lungs become a challenging factor for the Specialty Oxidant market share and development. The second most challenging factor in the market was the decrease in consuming capacity of food products containing some chemicals as ingredients; this affected the growth of the Specialty Oxidants Market.

 Market Opportunities

The rise in consumption of specialty oxidants such as hydrogen peroxide and sodium chlorate in bleaching can be a major opportunity to increase the specialty oxidant market value. The rise in demand for the pulp and paper industry increases the opportunity for growth. The chlorine-based bleaching is broadly used for wastewater treatment. It is largely used in bleaching drinking water and swimming pools, which raises the opportunities for specialty oxidant market growth.

Market RestraintsHydrogen peroxide is a very strong oxidizing agent. The chemical can be highly corrosive to the respiratory tract, skin and eyes. It should be handled properly; long-lasting use may irritate your skin and eyes or can cause bleaching of hairs. It is also not compatible with some raw materials such as copper alloys or heavy metals, which leads to self-accelerated thermal decomposition. Due to disruption in the supply chain, the market faced a heavy loss in the economy is also a restraining factor for the Specialty Oxidants Market Trends.

Cumulative Evaluation Of The Market
