Algaecide Market: An Overview

Algaecides are class of biocides used for terminating growth of algae. They are typically applied in waterbodies by injecting the targeted algaecide into the floating mat of algae. Selective algaecides should be used depending on the species. Incomplete eradication of algae from the water bodies and recurring use of algae increasing the demand of algae in the market. Algaecides are used not only in water bodies but also in sports and recreational centers, surface water treatment, aquaculture, agriculture and other niche applications. Algae prevention in the swimming pools has become one of the biggest challenges across the regions. Chlorine is usually used to terminate the algae present in the water. Thus, increasing the chlorine levels unexceptionally in the water. Selective algaecide application demand has been increased in the past half-decade owing to the algae termination. Quaternary ammonium compounds and copper sulfate compounds are typically used as a non-selective algaecide owing to its less hazardous nature. Moreover, its increasing awareness regarding biocides has increased its application in agriculture. Emerging applications and growing research regarding algaecide portrays a picture of growing algaecide demand across the regions. Demand of Algaecide is set to surge over the forecast period (2020-2030).

Demand Spike for Granular Algaecide is set to Define Algaecide Market

Liquid, granular, crystal and pellet are the four main forms of algaecide available in the market. Of which, granular has found attractive market share in the global algaecide market owing to its higher penetration into the cells of algae and higher dissolution in the water bodies. Followed by granular type, crystal form is being used in water bodies owing to its enhanced surface area for the termination of algae in the water. Liquid form is used when the algae is spread out across the water body owing its higher dispersion and area coverage in the water.

COVID-19 to Shatter the Algaecide Market

COVID-19 or Novel corona virus has not only shattered the movement of the people but also the production and trade of the major products in the market including algaecide. Increased production of essentials and force majeure of inessential products has disrupted the algaecide market. Demand shrink owing to the lockdown across the regions and shattered supply owing to the cease of trade of raw materials required to manufacture of algaecide. The market is set to remain the same till 2022 owing to the inflation across the regions. Reduction in buying power and budget constraints is set to hamper the algaecide market. Pandemic has hit the economy hard in the gut which is set to reflect on the global economy and chemicals market.
