The nationwide lockdowns implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic didn’t affect the benzalkonium chloride market much because the compound is widely used in manufacturing wipes, hand sanitizers, and other products used for disinfection. Benzalkonium chloride destroys the lipid (fat) envelop of viruses, thus rendering them unable to get through to human cells. Therefore, with the burgeoning demand for such disinfectant products, the consumption of this compound has risen too.

The benzalkonium chloride 50% bifurcation, under the type segment of the benzalkonium chloride market, held the larger share in the past. The compound in this particular concentration witnesses high-volume consumption in cosmetic and pharmaceutical products, as it is less toxic.

In the coming years, the highest value CAGR in the benzalkonium chloride market, of 10.0%, on the basis of application, will be witnessed by the disinfectants category. There are stringent regulations requiring hospitals and diagnostic, research, biotechnology and pharmaceutical laboratories to be disinfected on a regular basis. Another factor driving the demand for disinfectants and, in turn, benzalkonium chloride, is the increasing incidence of hospital-acquired infections (HAI).

The horticulture & household category is predicted to continue to dominate the benzalkonium chloride market throughout this decade, based on end-use industry. With the increasing awareness about hygiene and personal wellbeing, the demand for disinfectants and sanitizers is rising, thereby propelling the requirement for benzalkonium chloride. The COVID-19 pandemic has given a further push to the production of hand sanitizers and similar products, in turn, driving the market.

Till now, the North American benzalkonium chloride market has generated the highest revenue for companies offering this compound. With the growth in oil and gas exploration and production activities in Canada and the U.S., the usage of the compound as an inhibiter of the corrosion caused on underwater steel equipment by sulphate-reducing bacteria is rising. Another application of the compound in this sector is controlling the release of hydrogen sulphide gas, which results in oil souring.
