Aquatic Herbicides Market Overview


Aquatic Herbicides Market is expected to register a CAGR of 9.4% from 2022 to 2030 and reach USD 1305.9 million by the end of 2030. Aquatic herbicides are weed killers used to prevent, control, and eradicate weeds in aquatic conditions. The US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has registered 300 herbicides, and only 13 active ingredients are approved for use in and near aquatic habitats. Aquatic herbicides can be selective and non-selective, based on their mode of action. Selective herbicides target only certain specified selective herbicides and are non-harmful to other living entities in the same aquatic ecosystem. Non-selective herbicides attacks on every plant which comes in contact with them. The increasing number of manmade water reservoir due to limited water supply from freshwater reservoirs, rising trend of farm ponds to store & supply water, and increasing fishery and other aqua-cultural activities are the major factors driving the growth of global aquatic herbicide market. Moreover, aquatic herbicides are gaining popularity for weed management in dams and waterways, which is expected to boost the growth of global aquatic herbicide market.  However, longer response time and negative public perception can hinder the growth of global aquatic herbicide market.
