The "Food & Beverage Disinfection Market by Type (Chemical (Chlorine, Hydrogen Peroxide & Peracetic Acid, and Ammonium), Technology), End Use, Application (Surface, Packaging, Processing Equipment), and Region - Global Forecast to 2023" report has been added to's offering.

The global food & beverages disinfection market is estimated at USD 148.9 million in 2018, and is projected to reach a value of USD 178.2 million by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 3.7%.

The market is primarily driven by factors such as growing instances of outbreaks of foodborne disease, technological advancements in food & beverage disinfection methods, growth in awareness about food safety among consumers, and increase in demand for non-thermal processes in disinfection.

On the basis of the application area, the food & beverage disinfection market is segmented into food surface, food packaging, and food processing equipment. The food processing equipment segment accounted for the largest share, followed by the food packaging segment, in 2017. Food processing was the major application area of food & beverage disinfection (chemicals and technology), as the major focus of manufacturers is on disinfecting the food contact surfaces during the entire production line. Food processing equipment form a critical part of large manufacturing units, and the disinfection of these equipment helps achieve quality compliance.

On the basis of end use, the food & beverage disinfection market is segmented into the food industry and beverage industry. The beverage industry accounted for the larger market share in 2017. A majority of the disinfection equipment and chemicals available in the market are manufactured commercially to carry out the disinfection of water, as it is a major sector. Water disinfection is a stringent requirement in the beverage industry. Water used in the production of beverages as well as used in bottled water undergoes disinfection mainly through the use of UV technology. These factors have led to the tremendous growth of the concerned market, globally.

On the basis of type, the technology segment accounted for a larger market share in 2017, followed by the chemical segment. Technologies such as UV radiation is increasingly adopted by food & beverage manufacturers as an effective, cost-efficient, and safe disinfection technology. It is used either separately or in combination with other technologies to enhance its efficacy. Ozonation, which is another popular disinfection technology, is gaining traction in the food & beverage disinfection market, due to its effectiveness in the food packaging industry. Due to these factors, the market for the technology segment of food & beverage disinfection market accounted for a larger share.

Food & Beverage Disinfection Market

The Asia Pacific region is projected to be the fastest-growing market. The application of disinfection equipment is estimated to increase at a high rate, due to the increasing food safety concerns. The rapid growth of the food processing sector in this region is expected to result in the increase in the number of food processing units, which is further projected to boost the demand for food & beverage disinfection equipment and chemicals.

The major restraining factor for the food & beverage disinfection market is the rising demand for minimally processed food products and maintaining proper process control. In developed countries such as the US, Germany, the UK, and France, the demand for new organic foods among consumers, changes in eating habits, and food safety risks are restraining the growth of the prepared food industry, and, in turn, the food & beverage disinfection market. A number of food safety issues have been debated in the past in the global market, such as issues associated with food allergens, irradiation, and chemical preservatives.

Also, during food processing, it is crucial to maintaining control over the process, especially while disinfection due to direct application of chemicals such as quaternary ammonium compounds and hypochlorous acid on food surface. Ozonation and ultraviolet (UV) technologies used for disinfecting water, juices, and dairy products will lead to the presence of ozone gases and UV rays in the processing environment, respectively. Not many people have the skillset for operating the equipment and need to pay special attention to these factors. And, these factors are expected to restrict the growth of the food & beverage disinfection market in the long run.

Companies such Trojan Technologies (Canada), Halma (UK), Evoqua Water Technologies (US), Evonik (Germany), Solvay (Belgium), and Stepan Company (US) have acquired a leading market position through the provision of a broad product portfolio, along with a focus on diverse end-user segments.
