Research and Markets: Increasing Number of Cases of HAIs a Major Factor Driving the Growth of the Global Antibacterial Glass Market says 2014 Report
DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/m9xwcc/global) has announced the addition of the "Global Antibacterial Glass Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.
The analysts forecast the Global Antibacterial Glass market to grow at a CAGR of 6.39 percent over the period 2013-2018. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing prevalence of HAIs. The Global Antibacterial Glass market has also been witnessing the increase in competition among vendors. However, the lack of a standard industry benchmark could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
Key vendors dominating this space are Asahi Glass Co. Ltd., BÜFA GmbH & Co. KG, Nippon Sheet Glass Co. Ltd., and Saint-Gobain S.A.
Other vendors mentioned in the report are Beijing JiYan-Tech Co. Ltd., Corning Inc., Essex Safety Glass Ltd., Glas Trösch Holding AG, Ishizuka Glass Co. Ltd., Joh. Sprinz GmbH & Co. KG, Morley Glass & Glazing Ltd., and Vetraria Bergamasca Tecnovetro S.r.l.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: The Global Antibacterial Glass market has been witnessing growth in the demand for antibacterial glass from the Food and Beverage industry. The major reason behind this growth is the increased number of instances of food poisoning. Many recent food poisoning cases in the US and food hygiene-related issues in Europe in 2011-2012 have forced Food and Beverage industry vendors to take preventive measures. For instance, hundreds of people fell ill after consuming Salmonella-tainted salmon in the US in 2012. Also, the increasing consumer awareness about contaminated food has increased the concern for food safety. Antibacterial glass is best suited for structures where hygiene requirements have high priority. They also prevent fungi from multiplying. These factors are forcing Food and Beverage industry vendors to adopt antibacterial glass to prevent instances of food poisoning.
According to the report, the increasing number of cases of HAIs is a major factor driving the growth of the Global Antibacterial Glass market. It is estimated that every year 1.7 million cases of HAIs occur in the US and 99,000 people die from such infections.
Further, the report states that the low awareness about antibacterial glass is a major challenge faced by the vendors.
