ECONOMIC ASPECTS

 

The international antimicrobial chemical market, particularly in disinfectants, is expected to grow significantly over the coming years, on the basis of concerns about bacterial and other pathogenic threats and the increasing emphasis on hygiene in the home and work-place. The turnover of the US antimicrobial chemical industry is estimated to be in the region of $2 billion per annum. Key disinfectant products in use contain aldehydes, iodophors, nitrogen compounds (quaternary ammonium compounds and amine compounds), organometallics, organo-sulphurs, chloro-iso-cyanurates and phenolics. There are around 250 chemicals that have been identified as active components of microbicidal products in the EU.
