Biocides refer to anti-microbial chemicals used for preventing and controlling the growth of mold, bacteria and viruses. They are also used as antiseptics to treat infections in mucous membranes and damaged skin and as preservatives in soaps, face washes, cleansers and conditioners. Some of the commonly used biocides include sterilizers, wood preservatives, rodenticides, anti-fouling agents and in-can preservatives. They are manufactured using metallic compounds, halogens, organosulfur compounds and phenols. As a result, they find extensive applications across various industries, such as wastewater treatment, food and beverages, personal care, wood preservation, paints and coatings and construction.
The global biocides market is primarily being driven by the rising requirement for effective wastewater treatment solutions, along with the increasing demand for clean and potable water. Biocides aid in preventing bacterial and algae contamination in the municipal drinking water systems, pipes in pools and industrial water treatment systems. Furthermore, the widespread adoption of biocides in the manufacturing of cleaning agents is also driving the market growth. They are highly effective against grease, oil, microbes and pathogens and aid in maintaining hygiene in enclosed spaces. In line with this, the utilization of biocides with water-based paints and coatings to prevent fungal or microbial development on painted surfaces, is also contributing to the market growth. Additionally, various product innovations, such as the development of environment-friendly halogen biocides, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. These variants do not react with impurities in the medium and produce hazardous residues and substances. Other factors, including rapid industrialization, along with extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are anticipated to drive the market further.
