CMIT/MIT Market - Introduction

Chloromethylisothiazolinone/methylisothiazolinone (CMIT/MIT) fall under the isothiazolinones family – heterocyclic chemical compounds associated with isothiazole. CMIT/MIT is basically a preservative that comprises antifungal and antibacterial effects, and are efficacious against gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria, fungi, and yeast. Traces of CMIT/MIT are found in several water-based products, while the compound is also used in several industrial processes, fuels, paints, detergents, and glue production. 

CMIT/MIT can also be utilized in combination with preservatives such as bronopol, benzalkonium chloride, and ethylparaben. Accepted concentrations of CMIT/MIT in the U.S. are 8 ppm in cosmetics and 15 ppm in rinse-offs. CMIT/MIT has not been listed by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as possible, probable, or known human carcinogen, however CMIT/MIT has been found to be allergic to some humans. 

CMIT/MIT Market - Dynamics 

Chloromethylisothiazolinone/methylisothiazolinone (CMIT/MIT) market continues to remain underpinned by adoption of the compound in small quantities in consumer products such as cleaning wipes and personal care products. Personal care product manufacturers have shifted their preference from CMIT/MIT to MI owing to growing cases of allergies to isothiazolinones such as CMIT/MIT among consumers. Human skin has been observed to be hypersensitive to isothiazolinones such as CMIT/MIT, when regularly exposed to sufficiently high concentration of CMIT/MIT, thereby resulting into allergies. The European Cosmetics Regulation restricts the use of CMIT/MIT to maximum of 0.0015% in personal care products rinsed with water, which include hand wash and shampoo. 

CMIT/MIT market growth will also be sustained by use of CMIT/MIT as an effective preservative in paints, adhesives, and washing & cleaning agents, as CMIT/MIT prevents bacterial and fungal growth in packaging. Additionally, packaging of products containing CMIT/MIT are required to indicate the compound’s presence on the label. The USA EPA has registered CMIT/MIT as an industry insecticide, designating CMIT/MIT as secondary inhalation toxic compound. Researchers from Kangwon National University, Korea, have investigated CMIT/MIT’s cytotoxic effect in lungs of mice, despite unknown risk factors of this disinfectant. The researchers have found that CMIT/MIT exposure induces pulmonary damage in vivo and in vitro. Such research studies are likely to restrain growth of the CMIT/MIT market in the near future.
