The global industrial and institutional cleaning chemicals market size was USD 47.25 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 68.16 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.7% during the forecast period.

Industrial and institutional cleaning chemicals are cleaning, and sanitation products used to destroy or inactivate the microorganisms and bacteria present on the surface. The cleaning chemicals are utilized to eliminate the organisms present on the surface. The cleaning chemicals are witnessing a surge in demand due to the increasing hygiene and sanitation standards at commercial, and hospitality establishments. Stringent food safety standards will boost the demand for cleaning chemicals from food & beverage manufacturers. Furthermore, the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus increased the awareness amongst consumers regarding the advantages of sanitation, which, in turn, will propel the growth of the market. Government and environmental regulations on the use of industrial and institutional cleaning chemicals will hinder the market growth.

COVID-19 Outbreak Has Surged the Demand for Cleaning and Disinfectant Products

COVID-19 outbreak had a minimal impact on the growth of the market. The increase in awareness amongst consumers regarding sanitation and cleanliness to curb the virus's spread is one of the prominent factors behind the surge in demand for cleaning chemicals. The industrial and manufacturing sectors witnessed a boost in the need for chemicals to maintain hygiene at the workplace. The non-predictable nature of the virus led hospitals to take the necessary precautions to stop virus transmission, which resulted in a significant rise in demand for cleaning chemicals. However, the key players' insufficient manufacturing capacities in the industrial and institutional (I&I) cleaning chemicals market caused supply chain bottlenecks and could not fulfill the rising demand.

Rising Demand for Bio-based Products to Create Lucrative Growth Opportunities

Globally, the concerns regarding the adverse effects of petroleum-based solvents have stimulated the demand for sustainable products. The rise in consumer preference towards bio-based products has driven companies to use bio-based solvents to manufacture the products. Industrial and institutional cleaning chemicals derived from biological sources are less toxic and don’t contain volatile organic compounds. The green products comply with the environmental standards and air quality and are free from anti-bacterial constituents, reducing the risk of bacterial resistance to antibiotics. Companies in the market, including Diversey Inc., have introduced new green cleaning chemicals that comply with USDA, EPA, and Green Seal regulations.

Industrial and Institutional Cleaning Chemicals Market Growth FACTORS

Rising Demand from Commercial and Hospitality Establishments to Drive the Market

The rising demand for cleaning chemicals from commercial and hospitality establishments is expected to drive the industrial and institutional cleaning chemicals market. The high importance of hygiene at places of hospitality will increase the consumption of cleaning chemicals. Restaurants and hotels aiming to provide food services of international standards to their consumers will boost the demand for cleaning chemicals. In addition, increasing disposable income and the rise in spending on tourism activities are estimated to support the market's growth. Moreover, the increase in sanitation standards at the workplace in developed countries and the increase in the number of cleanliness initiatives at the workplace in developing countries will surge the demand for cleaning chemicals.


Regulations by the Government on the Use of Cleaning Chemicals to Restrain Growth

Industrial and institutional cleaning chemicals are used to maintain hygiene and sanitation levels at offices, manufacturing facilities, and institutions such as hospitals and schools. The cleaning supplies can contain flammable and corrosive chemicals, which might cause health problems when exposed to them. Many cleaning products and supplies can irritate the throat & eyes, headaches, or even form cancerous cells. The cleaning chemicals contain solvents that have high VOC content. VOCs released while using cleaning products contribute to chronic respiratory problems, asthma, and allergic reactions. Owing to the factors mentioned above, organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), and the National Library of Medicine (NLM) have regulated the use of cleaning chemicals. Hence, the regulations by the government will act as a restraint for the market.
