The molluscicides market is estimated to be valued at USD 548.0 Million in 2015. It is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.1% from 2016 to 2021, to reach 695.8 Million by 2021. The base year considered for the study is 2015 and the forecast period is 2016 to 2021. The global market is segmented on the basis of application which is further divided into their subsegments. It is also segmented on the basis of region into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World (RoW). With the growing production levels of field crops such as corn, rice, and wheat, and cash crops such as lettuce, artichoke, and strawberry in North America and Europe, the demand for molluscicides is likely to increase. The types of molluscicides used mainly include metaldehyde, methiocarb, and ferrous phosphate to combat infestation and damage caused by snails and slugs of different species.

This report includes estimation of market sizes for value (USD million) and volume (Tons). Both, top-down and bottom-up approaches have been used to estimate and validate the size of the global market and to estimate the size of various other dependent submarkets in the overall market. Key players in the market have been identified through secondary research, and their market share in respective regions has been determined through primary and secondary research. All percentage shares, splits, and breakdowns have been determined using secondary sources and were verified through primary sources. The figure below shows the breakdown of profiles of industry experts who participated in the primary discussions.

The molluscicides market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.1% from 2016 to 2021, to reach a projected value of USD 695.8 Million by 2021. The growth is driven by the adoption of agrochemicals by developing countries and increase in awareness about the usage of molluscicides to control mollusc population. The market is further driven by factors such as technology and product development of innovative molluscicides that can be cost effective as well as used on a broad crop portfolio.

Depending upon the source, this market is led by chemicals, followed by biologicals. Chemicals are extensively used in the manufacturing of molluscicides which are economically and widely available in the market. Harmful chemicals are used to kill molluscs such as snails and slugs that destroy crops by feeding on a variety of plants including flowers, fruits, and leaves. High usage of harmful chemicals has shown drastic impact on non-target species and ecosystem by increasing environmental footprint. The growth is driven by growing customer attention toward increasing the crop value of fruits, vegetables, ornamentals, & other field and horticultural crops.

Among the types of molluscicides, such as metaldehyde, methiocarb, ferrous phosphate, and others, metaldehyde accounted for the largest market share followed by methiocarb in 2015. Metaldehyde is widely used in the molluscicide products since it is easily available and reasonable at cost.

North America accounted for the largest market share for molluscicides, the U.S. being the fastest growing in the region from 2016 to 2021. Chemical molluscicides are among the widely used in North America due to increased usage of metaldehyde and methiocarb for the production of molluscicides in this region.

Molluscicides Market

The geographical limitation on molluscicide usage is one of the restraints for the molluscicides market. Also the regulatory restrictions imposed on the use of the molluscicide products are further hindering the growth of the market.

Lonza Group AG, one of the prominent players in the molluscicides market, focuses on pharma & biotech and specialty ingredients. The company’s core competencies are advanced manufacturing and quality-control systems, regulatory expertise, market knowledge, and R&D capabilities. Recently, the company has signed a strategic distribution agreement with Nulandis Ltd. (South Africa) to launch Axcela slug & snail pellet in South Africa. It has also acquired Zelam (New Zealand), a research-focused chemical company, which develops and manufactures products for crop protection.
