The Global Benzalkonium Chloride Market is classified on the basis of type, applications, function, end users and geography. A type of quaternary ammonium cationic surfactant is known as Benzalkonium Chloride (BAC). The growth of microorganisms such as fungi and bacteria can be inhibited by BAC. It has a number of significant characteristics such as non-corrosive, non-toxic, non-tainting, non-staining, etc. which enables it for wide range of manufacturing applications.
Alkyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride, ADBAC, BAC 50, BAC 80, BC50, BC80, BKC 50, BKC 80 are synonyms for Benzalkonium Chloride (BAC). The factors that propel the growth of the Benzalkonium Chloride Market include rapid urbanization & industrialization, increasing demand and wide range of applications.
BAC is widely used as a preservative in ophthalmic solutions. In addition, it is also used in first aid & cleaning products due to its disinfectant and antiseptic properties. Moreover, it is used in food processing industries as a sanitizing agent. Furthermore, it is used as a moth repellent in order to safeguard natural fibres from fungi and mould. It is also extensively used as phase transfer catalyst, precipitant, etc. in chemical industry.
On the other hand, there are also factors that may hamper the growth of the market such as side effects like allergic reactions in case of topical Benzalkonium Chloride. In addition, it is toxic to fish, marginally toxic to mammals and reasonably toxic to birds.
