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.,
Cornig 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
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.
