The global biocides market was valued at $12.7 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $20.7 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 6.8% from 2020 to 2027.



The effects of biocides are based on its chemical properties, size & characteristics of the organism, biocide concentration, treatment/application process, contact time, and water quality. Biocides are substances or mixtures consisting one or more active substances to inhibit microbial activities and exert a controlling effect on harmful & undesired organisms. They cover a wide range of products such as disinfectants, wood preservatives, rodenticides, shelf life extenders, antifouling agents, and preservatives, which are applicable in hospitals, homes, personal care, and other industries to destroy and control viruses, bacteria, algae, molds, insects, and mice. The use of biocides for water treatment in various sectors such as household, industrial, and commercial has led to the growth in demand for biocides. Asia-Pacific region is expected to emerge as the market leader for biocides, owing to stringent regulations toward the supply & usage of toxic & untreated drinking water and a rise in demand from end-use sectors such as plastics, food processing, paper & pulp, and personal care.

Developing countries have witnessed high demand for biocides, owing to rapid industrialization and an increase in demand from the oil & gas sectors such as oilfield, pipeline, and refinery. Additive applications such as use of hydraulic fracturing techniques (tight oil and shale gas formations), which require biocides to prevent corrosion and production issues that may be caused by bacterial contamination is further expected to fuel the demand for biocides. In addition, rise in demand from pulp & paper manufacturing and plastics production and an increase in awareness for protection against growth of bacteria and pathogens in the food & beverages industry are anticipated to drive the market growth during the forecast period. Moreover, it has become a regulatory trend to replace conventional chemicals such as chlorine in industrial water treatment applications with low-cost commodities to be further used in municipal water treatment. Market players focus on catering to the high demand for specialty biocides and its products and their variability. However, an environmental concern about the disposal and impact of toxic biocidal products is projected to reduce market penetration for these products in upcoming years.

The global biocides market is segmented on the basis of type, end-use industry, and region. Depending on type, the market is bifurcated into metallic compounds, halogen-based biocides, organic acids, sulphones, phenol-based biocides, and others. The metallic compounds segment is further sub-categorized into copper, mercury, magnesium, and others. The halogen-based biocides segment is further classified into chlorine, bromine, iodine, and others. The organic acid segment is sub-segmented into formic acid, lactic acid, ascorbic acid, and others. Based on the end-use industry, the global biocides market is segmented into food & beverage, construction, agriculture, pharmaceutical, personal care, water treatment, paints & coatings, home care, and others. Region wise, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

According to the report titled, 'Biocide Market by Type and End-Use Industry: Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2020-2027' the biocide market was valued at $12.7 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $20.7 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 6.8% from 2020 to 2027. Biocides are chemicals that combat pests or microorganisms such as molds, bacteria, algae, insects, and rodents. Biocides include various products such as disinfectants, wood preservatives, rodenticides, antifouling agents (on boats), and in-can preservatives, which are used in homes, hospitals, industries, and others. Biocide preservation applications that encompass preservation of water-based paints, adhesives, polymer dispersions, and metal working fluids (implied during the shaping of metals) have high market demand, accounting for the highest consumption of specialty biocides both in terms of volume and value. Despite regulatory pressures reducing the number of biocides depending on their concentrations in end products, blends of carefully selected biocidal active substances in optimal ratios coupled with new advancements provide improved preservation solutions without the need for cautionary labeling.

The global biocides market is primarily driven by increase in demand for clean water for domestic/industrial processes and growth of the end users across the globe. However, environmental regulations on the toxic biocides and variation in cost of raw material are expected to hinder market growth. Moreover, market opportunity for silver-based biocides and development of the organic biocide systems in the biocide market are anticipated to create lucrative opportunities for the key players during the forecast period.

Biocide is used in a wide variety of materials to protect against biological infestation and growth. Biocidal metallic compounds such as copper and tin have found effective usage in preservation of metalworking fluids or hydraulic fluids to deter bacterial growth. Metallic compounds have proved to be effective in removal of various corrosion levels in boilers. Furthermore, an increase in export and import of biocides across the countries, owing to their major applications in agricultural pesticides & insecticides and water treatment setups are some of the key factors that are projected to fuel the demand for biocides in the coming years.

On the basis of type, halogen-based biocides segment was the major revenue contributor in 2019, and is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period, owing to increase in demand from the from oil & gas sector, chemical, pulp & paper, and other industries.

On the basis of end-use industry, the agriculture segment dominated the global biocides market by accounting for the highest revenue in 2019. This is attributed to increase in demand from increase in demand for crop protection and crop enhancement applications. In addition, rise in awareness among farmers toward the biocidal products is driving the growth of the biocide market globally.

On the basis of region, the biocides market size is analyzed across four major regions, which include North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. Asia-Pacific accounted for the dominant biocides market share in 2019, and is anticipated to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. This is attributed to numerous factors such as huge consumer base and presence of key players in the region. In addition, more than 62.9% of the total Asia-Pacific biocide market share in terms of value is from the highest biocides production countries such as China, and India.

Berkshire Hathaway, BASF SE, DuPont, Kerry, Solvay SA, Lonza Group AG, Lanxess AG, Thor Group Limited, Clariant AG, Corbion N.V., Kemin Industries, Inc., and Nouryon are the key player profiles included in the report. Other players operating in the value chain include Arkema SA, Troy Corporation, Ercros, SK Chemicals Ltd. Kemira OYJ, and others.

Key Findings of the Study:

By type, the halogen-based biocides segment emerged as the global leader by acquiring around 43.4% of total biocides market share in 2019 in terms of revenue, and is anticipated to be the largest market during the forecast period.
By end-use industry, the agriculture segment emerged as the global leader, registering 15.04% market share in 2019 in terms of revenue, and is anticipated to continue its dominance during the forecast period.
Asia-Pacific is the major consumer of biocides among other regions. It accounted for around 35.1% of the global biocide market share in 2019 as a result of rapid growth in the construction and agriculture industries across the region.
The phenol-based biocide segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.7% in terms of revenue during the forecast period, and is accounted for $1,049.4 million in the year 2019.
