Zion Research has published a new report titled “Peracetic Acid Market for Food and Beverages, Pulp and Paper, Water Treatment, Medical, Agriculture, and Others Applications: Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis and Forecast, 2014 – 2020”. According to the report, global demand for peracetic acid was valued at around USD 425.0 million in 2014 and is expected to reach USD 655.0 million in 2020, growing at a CAGR of above 7 % between 2015 and 2020.
Peracetic acid is an organic compound with formula CH3CO3H. Peracetic acid (PAA) is produced by hydrogen peroxide and acetic acid in the presence of catalysts. The reaction results in peracetic acid along with certain amounts of hydrogen peroxide, acetic acid and water. Peracetic acid is manufactured in various grades depending upon the concentration of peracetic acid content in the chemical mixture and the requirements of end-user applications. It is soluble in ether, sulfuric acid, ethanol, and miscible with water. It is very effective as a biocide and is used in a range of applications. Peracetic acid is primarily used as a food & beverage, pulp & paper bleaching, medical, agriculture and others industries.
