I&I Cleaning Chemicals To Reach $10 Billion

January 10, 2007

U.S. demand for industrial and institutional (I&I) cleaning chemicals is projected to increase 3.8% per year, approaching $10 billion in 2010. Value gains will be boosted by the increasing market presence of multifunctional cleaning chemicals offering sanitizing and other benefits, as well as reducing labor costs for janitorial and other cleaning operations. Volume growth will be much slower, due to greater use of concentrated cleaners and reduced usage rates for traditional high volume raw materials, such as caustic soda, soda ash and commodity solvents, particularly chlorinated and hydrocarbon solvents. These and other trends are presented in Industrial & Institutional Chemicals, a new study from The Freedonia Group, Inc., a Cleveland-based industry research firm.

Commercial applications dominate the I&I cleaning chemical industry, accounting for about two-thirds of overall demand. Although it will remain the largest, the commercial segment is expected to register growth slightly below the overall average. The same is true for manufacturing markets, although the smaller institutional segment will post strong growth, in large part due to the growing health care market. Disinfectants and sanitizers will record the fastest growth among I&I cleaning chemical types through 2010, with growth well above the overall average. Gains will be driven by heightened safety and health concerns regarding the spread of infectious diseases and risks. More info: www.freedoniagroup.com.
