Biocides are substances used to kill or inhibit all life forms when introduced in sufficient concentration and duration. Biocides are mostly used to kill harmful organisms and control bacterial or fungal growth. There are various types of biocides such as halogen compounds, metallic compounds, organosulfurs, organic acids, phenolics, and others that are used in various applications such as water treatment, personal care, food & beverage, paints & coatings, wood preservation, and others. The biocide market is projected to register a CAGR of 4.8% between 2015 and 2020 to reach USD 10.6 Billion, by 2020.

Halogen Compounds have emerged as the key market for biocides. Halogen compounds are very effective microbial growth control agents. They are less costly, efficient, have wide spectrum of applications, and relatively low occurrence of resistance. The prime driver of biocides is the increasing demand from the end-use applications. The rising demand for biocides that comply with the environment norms is rising from the developed nations. Therefore, the demand for organic acids has increased in the European and North American region.

Water treatment segment is estimated to be the largest applications of the biocides market. Water treatment segment is projected to grow at the highest rate in biocide market between 2015 and 2020. The rising demand for treated water form municipal and industrial water treatment industries is driving the market for biocides. Biocides are used in oil & gas, metal & mining, pulp & paper and various other industries for treating the water. Moreover the rising demand for preservatives in food is driving the market for biocides in food & beverage segment. The rising construction activities in the Asia-Pacific region drive the market for biocides in wood preservation and paints & coatings segment.

This report estimates the biocides market for 2015, and projects its expected market size till 2020. It also provides a detailed qualitative and quantitative analysis of the biocide market. Various secondary sources, such as encyclopedia, directories, and databases are used to identify and collect information that is useful for this extensive commercial study.

The Biocide Market is projected to reach USD 10.6 Billion by 2020, registering a CAGR of 4.8% between 2015 and 2020.

The global biocides market is driven by the increased demand form the end-user industries such as oil & gas, mining, pulp & paper, among others. Asia-Pacific region, with its reviving economy and rapidly expanding commercial and industrial base is projected to experience the highest growth in the market between 2015 and 2020.

The market is segmented by type, application, and region. This market can be classified into six key segments, on the basis of type- halogen compounds, metallic compounds, organosulfurs, organic acid, phenolics, and others. The biocide market can be classified into application segments, such as water treatment, personal care, food & beverage, wood preservation, paints & coatings, and others. Water treatment segment is projected to be the largest market of biocides due to growing demand for treated water form commercial and industrial base.

The Asia-Pacific region is projected to register a highest growth in the market between 2015 and 2020. The growing end-user industry is the key driver of the market in the region. Europe is projected to witness a slow growth during the forecast period due to stringent environment norms in the region. Moreover, the food safety regulations are also strict in the region that hinders the market for preservatives in food segment. North America is the largest market for biocides followed by Asia-Pacific. The increasing demand from the water treatment segment coupled with the rising demand from reviving construction industry is driving the market for biocides in North America.

Water treatment segment drives the market for biocides in the developed nations of North America and Europe. Asia-Pacific is the potential market for biocides. The increasing demand for preservatives from the food & beverage segment coupled with the rising demand from paints & coatings is driving the market for biocides in the region. The demand for biocides is also expected to rise from the rest of the world, particularly Brazil. The growing construction industry drives the market for wood preservation & paints & coatings, which in turn drives the market for biocides.
