The Global Potassium Peroxymonosulfate Market Is Driven By Increasing Demand From Water Treatment Applications

Potassium peroxymonosulfate, also known as Caro’s acid or potassium monopersulfate, is an inorganic compound that is widely used as an oxidizer and bleaching agent in various industries including textiles, paper and water treatment. It has strong oxidation and bleaching properties and is effective in removing stains and disinfection of water. The compound is highly soluble in water and produces oxidative radicals such as sulfate and hydroxyl ions on decomposition in water, which help remove contaminants.Potassium peroxymonosulfate has less hazardous by-products than chlorine-based disinfectants and is increasingly being used for municipal and industrial water treatment applications. It is utilized to improve raw water quality by oxidation of organic contaminants and inactivation of microorganisms including bacteria, viruses and parasites.


The global Potassium Peroxymonosulfate Market is estimated to be valued at Us$ 624.96 Mn In 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR Of 5.3% over the forecast period 2023 To 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.


Market key trends:


One of the key trends gaining traction in the potassium peroxymonosulfate market is its increasing adoption in agricultural applications. Potassium peroxymonosulfate is an effective disinfectant and oxidizer that helps control plant diseases by destroying pathogens, fungi, mold and algae. It is used as an active ingredient in many fungicides and algicides used on fruits and vegetables. Its oxidizing properties also allow controlled release of oxygen that promotes plant growth. Growing demand for organic and sustainable farming practices is expected to drive further adoption of potassium peroxymonosulfate-based products in agriculture over the forecast period.
