North America Biocides Market size surpassed USD 4 billion in 2019 and is predicted to register growth of over 4.5% from 2020 to 2026.

Biocide is a chemical is used for destroying or control effect of harmful organisms. Biocides contain more than one active substance along with preservatives, stabilisers, and coloring agent. Active substances are used in biocide manufacturing to ensuring required pH, color, viscosity, and odor is obtained.

Biocides are synthetic chemicals and can also natural if they are derived from plants and bacteria. Biocides may be pesticide such as herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, and algicides and antimicrobial chemicals such as antibiotics, germicides, antivirals, antibacterials, antiprotozoals, and antifungals. Biocides are used in agriculture, medicine, forestry, and water treatment and industrial applications. These are also used as disinfectants in water treatment applications.

North American Market, By Product

Halogen compounds are chemicals that contain one or more than one halogen such as fluorine, chlorine, and bromine. Halogenated compounds have a wide range of properties such as biocidal, plasticising, water-repellent, lubricating, and cooling. Chlorophenols, a halogenated compound, can be used as multifunctional biocide. Further, stable halogen liquids are used in water treatment applications. The rising use of halogenated compounds in uses like cleaning swimming pools, dishwashing powders, and bleaches, should trigger the North American biocide industry growth.

North American Market, By Application

Based on the application, the water treatment segment held majority share in the North America biocides market. Biocides are used in water and wastewater treatment industry. Biocides are added to water treatment chemicals and antimicrobial surfaces. These are used for controlling microbial growth, which may lead to health hazards, chemical breakdown, biofilm development, and flow restrictions.

Further, it is also use for disinfecting tanks and water service pipework. Use of chemicals and disinfectants in industrial and commercial water treatment applications for cleaning, removing oil and biofilm, and disinfecting tank has increased, owing to increase in the number of water treatment plants in North America. Further, stringent regulations on polluted water discharge into the environment has also influenced companies to deploy inhouse water treatment plants in their facilities, which has influenced the demand for biocides in water treatment applications.

There is a wide range of disinfectants and cleaners used in food and beverage industry. Disinfectants are used in food and beverage plants for disinfecting food containers, processing areas, and production plants, which helps in controlling microbial growth in food and beverages. Raw materials for food and beverage production are also treated with biocides for removing micro-organisms. Strict regulations and standards regarding safety and hygiene in food and beverage production has led to an increase in the demand for biocides, which should fuel the market growth.

The number of water treatment plants in industrial and commercial applications owing to rising focus on protecting environmental and public health. Investment in water treatment facilities from municipalities, government authorities, and companies has also bolstered the consumption of biocides in water treatment applications. Further, growing consumption of food and beverage has also driven the demand for disinfectants and cleaners in food and beverage production and processing plants. Stringent regulations in food and beverage about hygiene and product quality has also propelled the North American market size.
