The Biocides industry has experienced improving demand within the Water treatment industry as industrial output rises. However, the biocides industry has to contend with increasing regulatory pressures and competition from commodity chemistry. For the future, the Biocides in Water Treatment will continue to grow due to substitution of gas chlorination and the replacement of traditional Biocides by more expensive environmentally friendly Biocides.
Most biocide active ingredient manufacturers are "positive" on this market due to favourable trends such as growing population and increasing GDP. The future is also promising for Biocide suppliers as the global economy recovers. According to Biocide Information, a growing population and expanding industrialization are playing key roles in the growth of the water treatment market. The rising world population is driving the need for clean water. Expanding industrialization means demand for biocides is also on the rise. "For example, biofilm is a key issue. Biofilm formation can harbor nuisance organisms and limit the efficiencies of the cooling equipment.
Another factor to influence Biocides is the regulatory environment.
The trend towards more environmentally friendly or environmentally acceptable products is having an impact. In addition, developing nations are setting up their own regulatory bodies. Taken as a whole, these factors will drive the growth of the Biocides industry and the need for specialized products to meet changing needs over time," according to Biocide Information.
North America accounted for approximately 40% of the total Biocide market. But several factors are combining to bring the total market value up and the North American percentage down.
"Growth in the North American biocides market has slowed down, but competition for market share among the leaders has only accelerated.
Consolidation in the industry has really raised the stakes for companies like Arch, Basf, Chemtura, Dow, Lonza and Oxychem, and they're looking to Countries in developing regions."
Countries such as Brazil, China, Eastern Europe and India continue to offer growth opportunities as per capita income rises and human health issues are accorded more importance.
