November 8, 2011

SAN JOSE, Calif. — The global market for disinfectants is projected to reach $2.9 billion by 2017, according to a new report by Global Industry Analysts Inc.

The growth is primarily driven by increased focus on hygiene and growing concerns over spread of infectious diseases in both residential and commercial/industrial spaces.

Rising demand from food industry, driven by stringent regulations guiding food safety, and increased adoption in water disinfection and aquaculture applications are also expected to drive growth opportunities in the short to medium term period.
