The global water treatment biocides market size is projected to reach USD 4.7 billion by 2024 from the estimated USD 3.5 billion in 2019, at a CAGR of 6.2% between 2019 and 2024. The presence of a stringent regulatory environment, along with the growing demand for biocides from various applications, are the factors driving the demand for water treatment biocides. However, the lengthy and expensive registration process is restraining the growth of the water treatment biocides industry.
On the other hand, rising population and rapid urbanization in emerging economies are providing opportunities for the players in the water treatment biocides market. The market players are mainly concentrating on expansions, new product launches, contracts & agreements, mergers, acquisitions, and joint ventures to meet the growing demand in various applications.
