Biocides are the chemicals which inhibit the growth of microorganisms or eradicate them completely, when applied in sufficient concentration and/or for a sufficient duration. They are harmful for all living organisms including human; however, the impact of biocides vary depending upon the organisms and conditions.

Various biocides are used in different applications wherein they serve different purposes. Some of those commonly used are halogen compounds, metallic compounds, organosulfurs, organic acids, and phenolics. All these serve at least one or more application areas of personal care, water treatment, wood preservation, food & beverages, and paints & coatings.

The global market has evolved significantly over the past few years as more efficient and premium biocides are replacing the commodity biocides market across regions. Increasing market awareness and better government support along with new regulations are expected to boost the market for premium biocidal products during the forecasted period.

North America has emerged as the largest market for biocides, largely driven by evolved economy, better living standards, high awareness, and reformed regulatory READ MORE >

Biocides are widely used in bacterial remedies in various industrial processes, drinking water, waste management, daily use cosmetics, and furniture. It has applications in water treatment, personal care products, wood preservation, preservatives in food & beverages, and paints & coatings.

North America dominated the global biocides market in 2012 with the highest demand coming from the U.S. market. Asia-Pacific, led by the emerging markets in China, India, South Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia, etc., is likely to fuel the future growth for this global market. Major factors contributing towards the global market growth would be the increasing global awareness and environmental concerns coupled with reforming regulatory frameworks in developing countries.

Biocides consumption growth in developed regions was affected in the last few years due to the global economic slowdown. However, during the same period, biocides consumption in the developing regions, especially China, remained relatively strong. Thus, overall consumption of biocidal products on a global level remained healthy.

Though the market is relatively fragmented, major players are located in the developed countries. Demand from the emerging markets is likely to remain robust in the coming five years, due to rising environmental awareness and regulatory reforms related to biocidal products. The major players have prominent presence in the developing countries.

This report analyzes the global market along with a detailed segmentation on the basis of its major types, along with its forecast till 2018. This report discusses in detail, the major supply and demand factors affecting the market on the global, regional, and country level.

The dominant producers of biocides are Lonza (Arch Chemical) (Switzerland), ISP (U.S.), The Dow Microbial Control (U.S.), Troy Corporation (U.S.), and Thor Specialities (U.S.)
