Global Metal Biocide Market Insight 2022-01-04 Comments

The Metal Biocide is forecast to crazy increase over the next four years. According to the World Knowledge Information (WKI) “Global Metal Biocide Professional Survey Report 2021, Forecast to 2026”, With the rapid improvement of people’s health awareness and the impact of the COVID-19, the hand sanitizer industry is developing at an incredible speed. The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for the 2021-2026 period is projected to be 4.3% base on WKI regression analysis model.

Analysts’ Viewpoint:
“The formulation should have low health and environmental impact and low toxicity while performing its tasks. Different products target different organisms. Formulators should choose a biocide/fungicide that targets the organisms they need to kill, whether it is bacteria, fungi, algae, or yeast.” said Barbie Brown, Senior analyst, Consumer Goods Market Research Center in WKI. “Formulators should also consider and select fungicides or fungicides whose mode of action does not promote the production of resistant microorganisms.”

Market insight:
The use of biocides in various industries has greatly increased. Cooling towers are one of the main application areas of fungicides in power plants, mines and chemical plants, because the cooling water system provides a favorable environment for the growth of microorganisms. This microorganism grows in the form of a thin film called a “biofilm.” Biofilm can cause fouling and adversely affect equipment performance. They can accelerate the rate of corrosion and can even pierce the surfaces of cooling towers and heat exchangers. Biofilm can promote the corrosion of contaminated metal surfaces, which is called microbiologically affected corrosion (MIC). In the oil and gas industry, the metal infrastructure used for oil and gas processing is mainly due to sulfate reducing bacteria (SRB) causing MIC. The growth of SRB is induced by low oxygen content, together with stagnant liquid in the pipeline. As a result, the demand for oxidizing and non-oxidizing biocides has increased because they are widely used in the manufacture of household, industrial, and institutional (HI&I) cleaning products, such as disinfecting wipes, sprays, and other cleaning fluids. The demand for HI&I products has increased significantly during the pandemic, leading to an increase in the demand for fungicides. Biocides are used in different end-use industries, such as water treatment, paint and coatings, fuel treatment, food and beverages, and industrial machinery to control the growth of microorganisms and prevent operational failures. As non-oxidizing biocides are widely used in the manufacture of household, industrial, and public institution (HI&I) cleaning products, such as disinfecting wipes, sprays, and other cleaning fluids, their number has increased. The demand for HI&I products has increased significantly during the pandemic, leading to an increase in the demand for fungicides. Biocides are used in different end-use industries, such as water treatment, paint and coatings, fuel treatment, food and beverages, and industrial machinery to control the growth of microorganisms and prevent operational failures.

Most people still have a negative impression of metal preparations, and believe that metal preparations, especially heavy metals such as inorganic copper, are extremely harmful to the body. In addition, due to the poor compatibility of copper preparations, simultaneous use with other drugs may cause phytotoxicity, so there is still a greater burden on the mind when using it.

Competition Landscape:
This WKI market report is designed to help clients improve their market position, and in line with this, this report provides a detailed analysis of several leading Metal Biocide companies that include BASF SE, Clariant, DOW, Milliken Chemical Company, and Lonza.

Segmentation of Metal Biocide Market:
According to the type, the metal biocide market is divided into silver, copper, zinc, alloy and others. Copper-containing fungicides occupy a major market share. Copper preparations have the characteristics of relatively low cost, resistance to resistance, low toxicity, and environmental protection. Therefore, copper preparations maintain a high market capacity for a long time. According to the application, the metal biocide market is segmented into paints and coatings, medical treatment, textiles, pesticides, wood preservation, food and beverages, etc. Paints and coatings occupy a large market share. The world has increased efforts in infrastructure construction, and developing countries such as India and Afghanistan and other countries that need post-war reconstruction have great demand for paint, which drives the demand for the paint and coatings industry and indirectly drives the development of the metal biocide industry.

Metal Biocide Market: Regional Analysis
In terms of geography, the global Metal Biocide market has been segmented into: North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, South America, and the Middle East and Africa. The Asia-Pacific region holds a major market share. India is the country with the largest demand for metal biocides in the Asia-Pacific region. The Indian government has promulgated the “Housing for All” plan. The goal is to build 20 million houses by 2022. There is a huge gap in the demand for paint in the construction industry, which is a larger opportunity for the metal biocide industry. China has a greater demand for coatings in terms of infrastructure construction. Afghanistan in the Middle East has just ended a 20-year war, and there is a large amount of infrastructure and housing that needs to be rebuilt. Therefore, the Asia-Pacific region is the region with the largest demand for metal biocides.
