In another instance, in February 2020, Evonik Industries, a leading specialty chemicals manufacturer, completed the acquisition of PeroxyChem LLC, a major chemical manufacturing company. The deal was intended to expand Evonik's product portfolio with the integration of PeroxyChem's well-positioned business for peracetic acid and hydrogen peroxide.

The peracetic acid market has been bifurcated on the basis of end-user, product, and region. With respect to end-user, the market has further been segregated into water treatment, agriculture, food & beverage, medical, and pulp & paper bleaching.

The food & beverage sub-segment is projected to amass notable gains by 2027, registering a CAGR of approximately 9.5% over the estimated timeline. Prevalent usage of peracetic acid in the food industry as a disinfectant as well as to prevent the growth of microbes in the production facility is likely to augment segmental growth in the coming years.
