The global Biocide consumption is estimated at $ 6.7 billion at active manufacture level and $ 11 billion at formulated level in 2015. The main factors affecting the Biocides industry are: (1) increased construction growth (2) industrialization in emerging markets (3) lowering of VOC's in end-products and (4) growing hygiene awareness.

- Biocides market growth in Europe, Japan and North America is estimated at 1%, 0% and 2% respectively. The developing regions are forecasted to grow 4 %.

- In recent years, Asia has enjoyed remarkable economic progress with increasing demand in construction, packaging, transportation and consumer products industries. These in turn are driving growth of key end-use industries such as paints and coatings, adhesive and sealants and synthetic latex polymers. Consequently, the Biocide preservation applications are leading market demand, accounting for the largest consumption of speciality Biocides in both volume and value terms. Water based adhesives and paints are enjoying fast growth due to the low volatile organic compound (VOC) emission trend which is gaining momentum. The rapid rate of urbanisation as well as growing awareness about the importance of effective sanitisers, in combination with growing disposable income contributes to growth in consumption in hygiene applications. Hygiene applications are the second biggest end-use industry. The water treatment industry will also witness healthy economic growth due to the increasing number of new power plants and heavy industries. While isothiazolinones lead the market by value, other important Biocides include chlorhexidine, DBNPA, glutaraldehyde, IPBC, peracetic acid, PHMB, Quats, Silver and Zinc Pyrithione.

- The Biocides industry is governed by end industry growth, technological developments, regulatory changes and the growing usage of industry standards.

- The author analyses each of these developments by specific end-user industry and their likely impact, according to three geographical areas (America, Asia Pacific and Europe). In addition, the Global Biocides Report provides detailed marketing data regarding Biocides, major applications, suppliers and customers.
