Bronopol Market: Drivers and Restraints
Growing water consumption across the globe, due to increasing population has led to an increase in the demand for bronopol, owing to its application in waste water treatment systems. Health awareness related to pathogens and bacterial growth among end users has increased in recent years, which in turn is expected to create a positive influence on the demand for bronopol globally. The rising emphasis on improved sanitation in production processes and workplaces will be one of the major drivers propelling demand of bronopol in the industrial sector. Moreover, demand for bronopol in cleaning products is expected to remain high for curing health care-associated infections in the healthcare sector. Paints and coatings application for bronopol is also expected to fuel growth opportunities, due to increasing demand for paint in new construction and building maintenance applications. In the oil and gas sector, growth will be supported by an increase in the use of hydraulic fracturing techniques for drilling shale gas formations to prevent corrosion and production issues that may be caused by bacterial contamination. Despite the growing applications of bronopol in various industries, there are some concerns regarding usability and safety that are expected to fade in the coming years. The ongoing global economic slowdown is one of the major restraints for the bronopol industry within developed markets, such as Europe and North America. The demand of bronopol in coming years may get affected by the increasing prices of raw materials and complex compliance structures.
