As municipalities and industrial facilities seek to comply with environmental regulations and protect water bodies from pollution, peroxyacetic acid -based disinfection becomes increasingly important in wastewater treatment.

Peroxyacetic acid is used as a biocide to control microbial growth in drilling fluids used in oil and gas exploration. Microbial contamination in drilling fluids can lead to souring, biofouling, and corrosion in drilling equipment and reservoirs. Therefore, the market is expanding significantly due to the exploration of oil and gas and production. Additionally, Peroxyacetic acid is utilized in personal care products such as soaps, shampoos, and body washes for its antimicrobial properties. Peroxyacetic acid -based formulations comply with regulatory requirements and safety standards, providing assurance to consumers and driving market demand for acid in hygiene products. Thus, because of the rising demand for personal care and hygiene products, the market is anticipated to increase significantly.

However, fluctuations in the cost of raw materials, such as acetic acid and hydrogen peroxide, used in peroxyacetic acid production can directly impact product profitability for manufacturers. Price instability may undermine customer confidence and loyalty, leading them to seek alternative disinfectants or sanitizers with more predictable pricing and cost-effectiveness. Thus, high cost and price volatility can slow down the growth of the market.
