Calcium Hypochlorite Market  is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.6% during the forecast period (2022-2029). 

Calcium hypochlorite is an inorganic substance with the formula Ca(ClO)2. It is the primary component of commercial products with chlorine powder, bleaching powder and chlorinated lime used to treat water and as bleaching agents. Compared to sodium hypochlorite, this compound is more stable and has more readily available chlorine (liquid bleach). Despite the yellow appearance of commercial samples, it is a white solid. It has a strong chlorine odor because of how slowly it breaks down in moist air. The primary factor influencing the calcium hypochlorite market is the global demand for freshwater coupled with the depletion of natural resources.

Market Dynamics

Increasing demand for rubber in various end-user verticals is a major market driver for the respective market. Nonetheless, growing environmental awareness and stringent laws restrain the market's growth.

Growing population, urbanization and demand for water

Due to extensive agricultural activity, a growing population and other factors, there is an increasing need for fresh water. The need for drinking water is very high throughout much of the world. Worldwide, over 2 billion people are without access to clean drinking water and predictions indicate that by 2030, almost half of humanity will experience severe water stress. The need for affordable drinking water is greater than ever. Further, water also plays a significant role in food security and is a crucial input for agricultural production. Twenty percent of all cultivated land is used for irrigation agriculture, contributing forty percent of all food produced globally. The productivity of irrigated agriculture is typically at least twice that of rainfed agriculture per unit of land, allowing for greater crop diversification and production intensification.

By 2050, it is predicted that agricultural production will need to increase by roughly 70% due to the increased calorie and complex food consumption that comes along with income growth in the developing world. However, the future demand for water across all sectors will necessitate a reallocation of up to 40% of the water from lower to higher productivity and employment activities, particularly in areas with a water shortage. Due to agriculture's significant share of water use, such reallocation is typically anticipated to originate from this sector. Currently, 70% of all freshwater withdrawals worldwide are used for agriculture (on average). Competition for water resources is anticipated to increase due to population growth, urbanization and climate change, with an emphasis on agriculture.

Calcium hypochlorite has similar disinfectant properties to sodium hypochlorite, is more stable than sodium hypochlorite and has more chlorine available than sodium hypochlorite (liquid bleach). When kept in dry storage, it has excellent stability and retains its potency over time. Commercial grades of Ca(OCl)2 are suitable for drinking water and wastewater applications because they typically contain about 70% chlorine. Due to the treatment of used water, there will be an increase in the use of calcium hypochlorite in the area. Calcium hypochlorite is used to decontaminate used or wastewater before repurposing it as fresh water for several purposes. The demand for freshwater, thereby expanding the global calcium hypochlorite market, is primarily driven by the rapid rate of urbanization and the growing population.

Health and Environmental hazards

Because the chemistry of liquid chlorine and chlorine gas is so similar, neither Giardia nor Cryptosporidium kill rates, nor disinfection by-product advantages are provided by this method. Although solid Ca(OCl)2 is more stable and secure to handle than its liquid counterpart NaOCl, it is still corrosive and hygroscopic and if not stored in airtight containers, it will act with moisture in the air to form chlorine gas. Ca(OCl)2 containers must therefore be completely sealed or empty. Wastewater systems using Ca(OCl)2 typically need dechlorination after disinfection to minimize chlorine discharges to receiving waters, just like with chlorine gas and NaOCl.

Further, exposure to calcium hypochlorite can cause a number of health hazards, including skin burns, eye burns and lung and lung burns. It may also lead to medical emergencies like pneumonia, which is anticipated to hinder the global calcium hypochlorite market development. As a result, the market for calcium hypochlorite is also constrained by the government's strict rules and regulations. Additionally, the ecosystem is harmed by the emission of harmful gases and pollutants and any restrictions placed on this activity could impede market expansion.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Though like any other market, the global calcium hypochlorite market was negatively impacted by COVID-19's initial waves, the pandemic's overall effect was only moderate. Calcium hypochlorite production has been hampered by the need for skilled labor, large-scale industrial reagents and heavy machinery for the industrial-scale synthesis of calcium hypochlorite. Production was severely hampered during the pandemic by industry curfews and the need for social isolation. The COVID-19 pandemic's global lockdown also severely hampered the supply of raw materials needed to make calcium hypochlorite and finished goods. The demand-supply dynamics of the calcium hypochlorite market were severely impacted.

However, the demand for the respective product was boosted due to the high demand for disinfectants and cleaners from various end-use applications, including households, hospitality, pharmaceuticals and retailers. The developing awareness of the importance of maintaining high hygiene standards among customers and consumers is anticipated to increase demand for the product. Some economies have declared temporarily permitting calcium hypochlorite manufacturers to buy raw materials from unlisted agencies due to supply disruption and growing trade uncertainties. Businesses are investing significantly to enhance their current offerings' manufacturing, logistics and product quality. In the upcoming years, these variables are anticipated to further fuel demand for the respective product.
