The Europe Calcium Peroxide market is projected to register a CAGR of over 2.5% during the forecast period. Calcium peroxide is an inorganic and oxygen-generating compound used as a seed disinfectant, an antiseptic, an additive to food, and a rubber stabilizer. Nationwide lockdowns worldwide due to the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted calcium peroxide manufacturing and the raw material supply chain. However, the conditions recovered in 2021.

Key Highlights

  • Growing demand for calcium peroxide in the food, agriculture, cosmetics, mining, oil, and gas industries are some driving factors that simulate the European market demand.
  • Increasing environmental concerns regarding soil remediation, oil-spill recovery, and improved crop establishment using seed pelleting with calcium peroxide are expected to act as an opportunity for the market.
  • The potential hazardous effects of calcium peroxide are likely to hinder the market’s growth.
  • The rise in oral care hygiene is one of the factors contributing to the calcium peroxide market growth. Calcium peroxide is an oxidizing agent used for tooth whitening and is an environmentally friendly raw material.
