Consumer antiseptic sales have also risen as less unemployment and greater disposable income have prompted health-conscious consumers to spend more on personal antiseptics. An improving economy has also bolstered the accommodation and food service industries, which are major users of antiseptics and other products manufactured by this industry. As a result, industry revenue is expected to increase at an annualized rate of 4.8% to $1.1 billion over the five years to 2018, including projected growth of 3.4% in 2018. Industry profit, however, has been tempered by the passage of new US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations requiring industry manufacturers to assure the safety and efficacy of their products. Stricter regulations will increase costs for existing industry operators.
This industry manufactures antiseptic ampoules, tablets, capsules, vials, ointments, powders, solutions and suspensions.
