SOLVENT SALES

November 14, 2005

● Sales of disinfectant and antimicrobial chemicals are expected to grow 6% a year, reaching $735 million
in 2007, according to The Freedonia Group Inc., Cleveland, OH in its Solvents report. Demandwill be driven by heightened awareness of foodborne pathogens and infectious disease
transmission. Paints and coatings will remain the largest market for antimicrobial
additives, and antimicrobials in plastics will also grow, according to experts.
Due to expanding applications in low-solvent coatings and hard surface cleaners,
iodophors will record above-average growth and organometallics will comprise
almost 45% of all disinfectants and antimicrobials in 2007. The Freedonia Group
said prospects for organosulfurs and chloroisocyanurates are also favorable. More
