A research study titled, “Biocides Market by Product and Application - Global Industry Analysis and Forecast to 2022” published by Crystal Market Research, states that the Biocides Market is projected to be around $11.87 billion by 2022.
The global Biocides market was worth USD 7.31 billion in the year of 2012 and is expected to reach approximately USD 11.87 billion by 2022, while registering itself at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.46% during the forecast period. A biocide is characterized as a compound substance or microorganism planned to deter, destroy, render harmless, or apply a controlling impact on any hurtful life form by concoction or natural means. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) utilizes a rather unique definition for biocides as "a diverse group of poisonous substances including preservatives, insecticides, disinfectants, and pesticides used for the control of organisms that are harmful to human or animal health or that cause damage to natural or manufactured products". When looked at, the two definitions generally suggest the same, despite the fact that the US EPA definition incorporates plant security items and some veterinary medications. The expressions "biocides" and "pesticides" are regularly exchanged, and frequently mistaken for "plant protection products". To clear this up, pesticides incorporate both biocides and plant assurance products, where the previous respects substances for non-food and feed purposes and the last respects substances for food and feed purposes.
Increasing demand from mechanical applications, majorly in personal care, paints and coatings and water treatment coupled with the dynamic extension of these end user industries is foreseen to boost the biocides market in the following years. Expanding adoption of water treatment methods in countries including China, Japan and India are anticipated to boost the growth of the market. Additionally, increasing awareness of health is projected to bolster the demand for clean water and is anticipated to boost the development of the market throughout the upcoming years. Furthermore, growing need for consumable water in domestic and industrial applications due to surging population is expected to fuel the requirement in water treatment application.
