European Chlorine Dioxide Market size is set to reach USD 350 million by 2026, according to a latest forecast report by Graphical Research.
Increasing use of choline dioxide as disinfectant in industrial wastewater treatment and swimming pool applications should accelerate the market demand. Further, growing use of choline dioxide in food & beverage industry as disinfectant will stimulate the market growth.
The food & beverages segment in the European chlorine dioxide market is estimated to observe a growth rate of 5.5% from 2020 to 2026. Choline dioxide is used as disinfectant is food and beverage production and treatment. In dairy industry, choline dioxide is primarily used for disinfecting dairy products such as mil, milk products, whey protein powder, lactose, ice cream, and cheese. It is mainly used in dairy industry as it is a strong disinfectant, and it will not cause harm to any dairy products as it doesn’t hydrolyze in such products. Further, it is also used in bottled water production process for disinfecting drinking water.
Chlorine dioxide is used against E. coli virus, bacteria, and algae, which also helps in extending the shelf life of water. Moreover, chlorine dioxide is also a EPA registered chemical and is used as a bactericide and antimicrobial agent. Use of chlorine dioxide in food and beverage has soared owing to its use in food and beverage processing facilities for cleaning, sanitizing, and controlling the growth of microorganisms that may cause harm to food and beverage products. Further, the demand for chlorine dioxide has been stimulated by growing food and beverage production in Europe.
The food industry in Europe is projected to grow surpass USD 1,800 billion by 2021, owing to increasing population and rising trend of eating away from home. Further, the consumption of ready to eat products has also soared in urban areas of Europe. This trend has boosted the food and beverage production levels.

Paper manufacturing involves two steps: in first step raw materials is converted into pulp and in second step the pulp obtained in converted into paper. Pulp and paper are obtained from cellulose fibers from trees and are dry. Chlorine dioxide is used in pulp & paper processing as an oxidizing agent in bleaching process in paper manufacturing. Utilization of chlorine dioxide in paper manufacturing helps in producing clearer and stronger fibers as compared to paper produced while using chlorine as a bleaching agent.
The revenue generated by pulp and paper sector in Europe has increased from around USD 97 billion in 2016 to approximately USD 108 billion in 2019. This increase in the pulp and paper consumption has stimulated the demand for choline dioxide for bleaching applications in pulp and paper manufacturing.
The European chlorine dioxide market growth has been propelled by growing use of choline dioxide as disinfectants in application such as industrial wastewater treatment, food, and beverages, and medical. The use of registered disinfectant for meeting hygiene and safety standards in various industries has increased owing to greater emphasize on product quality.
Major players in the market include Acceptat, ProMinent, Ecolab, Evoqua Water Technologies, The Sabre Companies, Tecme Srl, Iotronic Elektrogerätebau, Scotmas Group, and Superior Plus.
