Embalming Chemical Market to Grow at a CAGR of 2.5% from 2017 to 2022, Says Esticast Research and Consulting

January, 2018

As per the report "Embalming Chemicals Market By Type ( Formaldehyde, Phenol, Ethanol, Mixtures ), By Application ( University medical centers, Anatomical institutes, Pathological institutes, Hospitals, Funeral homes ), Estimation & Forecast, 2017 - 2022" In 2016, the funeral homes segment generated the highest revenue share in the global embalming chemical market. Among major regions, North America was the highest revenue generating market, holding nearly half of the market share, in 2016.

“Formaldehyde is the most common chemical used for embalming. Embalming carried out with individual chemicals or a mixture of chemicals, formaldehyde is an integral part of the process. However, the harmful effects of formaldehyde has prompted manufactures of embalming fluid to manufacture formaldehyde free- fluids. The sales of formaldehyde free fluids is witnessing an upward trend, even though their efficiency is low as compared to formaldehyde products.”

Funeral homes account for a major portion of the global market share, owing to the rising funeral trends

In North America, almost every family prefers to have a grand funeral in a well-organized manner without any kind of mismanagement, including embalmment of the deceased. Funeral homes heavily rely on the formaldehyde based embalming fluids, along with embalming powders, concealers, cavity gels, makeover products and much more. In terms of consumption, funeral homes account for more than half of the global consumption value.

Adoption of green funeral is anticipated to hamper the market growth of embalming chemicals

The highly encouraged trend of green funerals and rising awareness regarding the harmful effects of embalming chemicals might impede the usage of embalming fluids in the funeral homes. The belief that harmful embalming chemical such as formaldehyde seeps into the soil where the embalmed body has been buried. This leads to the deterioration of the environment. This has prompted people to opt for green funerals.
