US demand for industrial & institutional cleaning chemicals to approach $10 billion in 2010.US demand for industrial and institutional (I&I) cleaning chemicals is projected to increase 3.8 percent per year, approaching $10 billion in 2010. Value gains will be boosted by the increasing market presence of multifunctional cleaning chemicals offering sanitizing and other benefits, as well as reducing labor costs for janitorial and other cleaning operations. Volume growth will be much slower, due to greater use of concentrated cleaners and reduced usage rates for traditional high volume raw materials, such as caustic soda caustic soda: see sodium hydroxide.

The alkalies called caustic soda and caustic potash (potassium hydroxide) are very important industrial chemicals, with uses in the manufacture of , soda ash soda ash: see sodium carbonate. and commodity solvents, particularly chlorinated chlorinated /chlo·ri·nat·ed/ (klor´i-nat?ed) treated or charged with chlorine.

Commercial applications dominate the I&I cleaning chemical industry, accounting for about two-thirds of overall demand. Although it will remain the largest segment by far, the commercial segment is expected to register growth slightly below the overall average. The same is true for manufacturing markets, although the smaller institutional segment will post strong growth, in large part due to the growing health care market.
Food-related uses account for a large share of overall I&I cleaning chemical usage. Foodservice is the largest commercial market, and food and beverage F&B is a common abbreviation in the United States and Commonwealth countries, including Hong Kong. F&B is typically the widely accepted abbreviation for "Food and Beverage," which is the sector/industry that specializes in the conceptualization, the making of, and delivery of foods. processing is by far the largest manufacturing market.

Disinfectants and sanitizers will record the fastest growth among I&I cleaning chemical types through 2010, with growth well above the overall average. Gains will be driven by heightened safety and health concerns regarding the spread of infectious diseases infectious diseases: see communicable diseases. and risks associated with foodborne pathogens foodborne pathogen Public health A pathogen–especially bacteria, for which the 'vector' is itself a food.
