Biocides Market Research Report – Forecast to 2023

ID: MRFR/CnM/5040-UR | Upcoming | Region: Global | None

Market Snapshot


Biocides or biocidal substances are categorized into disinfectants, preservatives, insecticides and pesticides that are used to exert a controlling effect on organisms that are harmful to human or animal health. The global biocides market is marked to expand at a moderate growth rate in the forthcoming years. Increasing utilization of biocides and biocidal products in multiple industrial sectors for disinfecting purposes is majorly driving the global biocides market. Application of biocides in food and beverages industry for disinfecting pipes, equipment, and surfaces which are in close contact with manufacturing and packaging processes, spur in demand for clean water for domestic and industrial use and increasing utilization of biocidal products as anti-fouling agents and disinfectants have created multiple opportunities for the expansion of the global biocides market. On the flipside, biocidal active products have relatively high toxicity and long-term exposure to these products may cause hazards to human health. Hence, rise in concern regarding the health hazards caused by biocides and biocidal products is creating hindrance in the growth of the global biocidal market during the assessment period.
