Biocides find relevance in the food & beverage industry too. They are used in food contact materials (FCMs) and active packaging materials to prevent microbial contamination since food spoilage causes significant economic damages at all stages of the food production chain. Biocides find major application in water treatment which is a key factor driving the growth of the market. Biocides are the preferred product for water treatment in spas and swimming pool since they pose minimum threat to human health.

Biocides consumption is expected to rise significantly in the backdrop of outbreak of various water-borne diseases which necessitate water treatment. Need for portable water in domestic and industrial applications is also expected to fuel the demand for biocides. Biocides are also experiencing heightened demand from the energy sector which is complemented by the increase in the use of hydraulic fracturing techniques in the energy sector. Biocides are used as well stimulation fluids in hydraulic fracturing to prevent corrosion and production issues. However, the market growth of biocides might be limited by the harmful effects related to biocides. Moreover, the formulation of stringent norms against the use of biocides also acts as impediment to the growth of the global biocides market. Concerns about the negative impacts of biocides have directed focus towards development of higher value environmentally less harmful biocides which is expected to provide growth prospects to the global biocides market.
