Water Treatment Biocides Market – Global Forecast to 2024

water treatment biocides

The global water treatment biocides market size is projected to reach USD 4.7 billion by 2024 from the estimated USD 3.5 billion in 2019, at a CAGR of 6.2% between 2019 and 2024. Water treatment biocides are active substances or chemicals used to destroy or prevent the growth of any microorganisms, such as bacteria and fungi.

They are used in water-intensive applications, where the growth of microorganisms can create problems, such as microbially influenced corrosion (MIC) and anti-fouling, among others. The growing water scarcity and depletion of freshwater and groundwater resources have led to the increasing use of water treatment biocides. 

Based on product type, the water treatment biocides market is segmented into oxidizing biocides and non-oxidizing biocides. The non-oxidizing biocides led the water treatment biocides, in terms of value, in 2018. The growing demand for non-oxidizing agents in applications such as oil & gas, power plants, and pulp & paper, among others is driving this segment of the market.

Based on application, the water treatment biocides market is segmented into municipal water treatment, oil & gas, power plants, mining, pulp & paper, swimming pools, and others. The others segment comprises reverse osmosis membranes, poultry, and food & beverage.
