Key Market Trends

Commercial Application to Dominate the Market Demand

  • The commercial segment is the largest consumer in the industrial and institutional cleaning chemicals market.
  • Commercial application of cleaning chemicals is found in industries, such as food and beverage, retail, laundry and dry-cleaning, healthcare, car washes, and offices, hotels, and lodging.
  • Thus, growth in such end-user industries is likely to increase the demand for cleaning chemicals from commercial application.
  • The food and beverage industry has been growing worldwide, with increasing innovation and development of new food products and drinks. With a growing population across the world, the industry is further increasing its production, to cater to the rising demand. During 2018-2019, the world population was registered to be growing at a rate of 1.07% per year.
  • In regions, like Asia-Pacific and the Middle East & Africa, investments into the healthcare industry have been increasing, due to the growing need for medical assistance, increase in the spending capability on health, and lack of proper healthcare sector.
  • For instance, in the Middle Eastern countries, some of the healthcare construction projects, either planned or in the development phase, include Aster Hospital Project in Oman, Expansion of Domat Al-Jandal General Hospital in Saudi Arabia, Mediclinic Al Noor Hospital Expansion Project in the United Arab Emirates, Ahalia Hospital Project - Sharjah Healthcare City in the United Arab Emirates, Wakra Health Centre Construction Project in Qatar, Madinat Khalifa South Health Center Project in Qatar, Prince Sattam Bin Abdulaziz University Hospital Project in Saudi Arabia, and others.
  • In Singapore, a construction project worth USD 740 million, of Woodlands Health Campus, is under construction, which is expected to be completed by 2022.
  • Hence, such trends in the end-user industries are likely to increase the demand for industrial and institutional cleaning chemicals, during the forecast period.
