The global market has evolved significantly over the past few years as more efficient and premium biocides are replacing the commodity biocides market across regions. Increasing market awareness and better government support along with new regulations are expected to boost the market for premium biocidal products during the forecasted period.
North America has emerged as the largest market for biocides, largely driven by evolved economy, better living standards, high awareness, and reformed regulatory framework. U.S. alone accommodates over 80% of the region’s biocides consumption in terms of both, value and volume.
Asia-Pacific, on the other hand, provides excellent opportunity for market growth during the forecasted period. The governmental focus shift towards improving living standards in China coupled with the huge domestic market is expected to exponentially increase the Chinese market growth in the country. Other Asia-Pacific countries such as India, South Korea, Malaysia and Indonesia are also improving the regulatory frameworks and focusing on their usage which help in turning processes more environmental friendly. Increasing penetration in the developing countries of Asia-Pacific will boost the regional market.
