Meat & poultry, by food processing, is estimated to hold the largest market share during the forecast period
The market for food disinfection, by food processing, has been segmented into meat & poultry, dairy, fish & seafood, fruits & vegetables, and other foods. Meat & poultry account for the largest market during the forecast period owing to the large pool of products available in the market. Meat processing facilities often face the challenge of controlling the count of Salmonella, Listeria, and other bacteria. Since meat and poultry are susceptible to easy contamination by pathogens and are highly perishable products, disinfection of meat processing equipment is of prime importance to prevent disease outbreaks.
Hydrogen peroxide and peracetic acid, by chemical type, is estimated to hold the largest share in the food disinfection market during the forecast period
The hydrogen peroxide and peracetic acid segment accounts for the largest share and is also projected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. Hydrogen peroxide is the most commonly used disinfectant in the food industry. It is characterized by its economical nature as compared to alcohols.

Processing, by application area, is estimated to account for the largest market share during the forecast period
Processing account for the largest market size during the forecast period, owing to increase in the consumption of meat & poultry products, dairy products, fish & seafood, and fruits & vegetables sector. Food processing machinery form the largest market for food chemical disinfectants and equipment as the major focus of manufacturers is on disinfecting the food contact surfaces during the entire production line. Since food processing equipment comes in direct contact with food surfaces, it becomes critical for processors to maintain the cleanliness and hygiene of these equipment to prevent cross-contamination of food products and ensure high quality and safety of end-food products. The disinfectants to be used on food contact surfaces are highly regulated by government agencies to ensure food security. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency defines food contact surfaces “as any equipment or utensil which normally comes in contact with the food product or surfaces normally in contact with the product.” Food processing equipment form a critical part of large manufacturing units, and the disinfection of these equipment helps achieve quality compliance.
