Disinfectant and antimicrobial chemicals are used for inhibiting the growth of microorganisms. These specialty chemicals are used to keep house, offices, schools, industrial equipment, processing facilities, and other public places clean & hygienic. Antimicrobial chemicals include antiseptics, antibiotics, antifungals, antiprotozoals, and antivirals, whereas disinfectants include alcohols, aldehydes, and phenolic compounds. For the purpose of analysis, the report segments the global antimicrobial & disinfectant chemicals market based on function, product type, end use, and region. The report provides information about the various functions of antimicrobial & disinfectant chemicals, including disinfectant & sanitizer and antimicrobial additives. Phenolic, iodophors, nitrogen compounds, organometallics, organosulfur, aldehydes, and other chemicals are the different product types covered in the study. The major end users of antimicrobial & disinfectant chemicals are paint & coatings, food & beverage processing, medical & health care, plastics, textiles, and other industries. The report further outlines the details about the revenue generated by antimicrobial & disinfectant chemicals across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
There is a fast-growing need for anti-microbial paints and coatings to improve quality in residential, commercial, institutional, and industrial applications to control the growth of mold and/or reduce the risk of healthcareassociated infections or community-acquired infections. A number of paint products available in the market claims anti-microbial functions. However, the current products have significant shortfalls, including weak activities, risk of resistance from virus, and difficulty in monitoring & extending the anti-microbial functions once the coatings are applied.
Alcohol enzymes encompass all enzyme products that are used in various stages of alcohol production. They are added into the production process to enhance, improve, or catalyze the alcohol fermentation process to obtain high product yield and low production costs. They are a part of industrial enzymes that are developed and produced for use in distilled alcohol production, beer brewing, wine making, and for biofuel production. Currently, most of the enzymes are produced from genetically modified (GM) microorganisms. The global alcohol enzymes market analyzes various enzymes offered by key players in the market. The market is segmented into type and end users.

These products include bioreactors, hydrogels, multi-well plates, scaffolds, and microchips. The revenue generated from the 3D cell culture services include custom services on 3D cell culture products such as, microchip model developments for use in various applications. The drivers, restraints, and opportunities in the market are provided to understand the market dynamics. The market players have adopted to facilitate effective planning and decision-making.
Gaseous fire suppression systems are innovative systems, mostly preferred by data center operators at critical points in facilities such as server rooms. Also, these systems mostly apply two methods - inert gas and synthetic gas suppression systems. Inert gas suppression systems mainly decrease the oxygen level below 15% to extinguish the fire, whereas synthetic ones use a cooling mechanism to extinguish the fire.
The data center market is being affected by the construction as well as logistics standpoints. Many countries across the globe have requested construction contractors to halt their work and stay safe at home. Non-essential construction projects have been brought to a halt for at least a month to avoid the spread of COVID-19. The pandemic has already postponed the construction of new facilities and halted the ongoing construction of facilities from colocation data center service providers. This has also imposed various precautionary measures for contractors involved in the construction of facilities, which might lead to the delay of many projects. The severity of the impact varies from one country to another.
The global economy is facing a slowdown due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic that has spread across the world. It affected China in Q1 and Q2 2020 and impacted other countries such as the US, Italy, the UK, Germany, France, Spain, India, Australia, Japan, and Southeast Asia. The COVID-19 pandemic caused cultural, political, and social changes not seen in decades, and the effect has already been experienced by the major sectors from finance to airlines. In the data center market, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the following areas
Compression garments include clothing such as leggings, vest, socks, and bodysuits that can be made from elastic/non-elastic laminates and elastomeric fibers. They are designed to apply pressure on targeted zones such as legs, abdomen, chest, arms, and feet. The key functions of compression garments are compressing, stabilizing, supporting the underlying tissues, and regulating blood flow. As of 2019, compression garments were primarily used as sports and athletic wear, healthcare and therapeutic, and body-shaping (slimming).
Diabetes is a chronic, life-threatening disease for which there is no known cure. The disease is caused by the body’s inability to produce or effectively utilize insulin. This inability prevents the body from adequately regulating blood glucose levels. Glucose, the primary source of energy for cells, must be maintained at certain concentrations in the blood to permit optimal cell function and health. Normally, the pancreas controls blood glucose levels by secreting insulin that lowers blood glucose levels when concentrations are too high. In people with diabetes, the body does not produce sufficient levels of insulin or fails to utilize insulin effectively, causing blood glucose levels to rise above normal.
The prostate is a small male reproductive gland. The urethra is a thin tube-like structure through which semen and urine leave the body. Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a urological disorder characterized by non-cancerous proliferation of prostate gland cells. When a patient is suffering from BPH condition, it causes the gland to enlarge, and, as a result, the patient might experience a press against the urethra, constricting urine flow resulting in blockage and urination problems. BPH generally happens when excessive cells in the prostate multiply, and the gland size increases.
