Global metal biocides market is projected to reach $ 3.5 billion by 2024, growing at a CAGR of 5% during 2019-2024, on account of growing paints & coatings, medical and water treatment industries. Notably, the metal biocides prevent the microbial activities and their effectiveness varies with both the concentration as well as duration of exposure. The metal biocides market find applications in numerous end-use industries including agriculture, waste water treatment, pharmaceutical and personal care. These are used for the treatment of drinking water, wastewater, as antifouling agents and disinfectants in hospitals that prevent molluscs from accumulating in industrial pipes. Furthermore, they find applications in preventing the growth of algae and fungi on applied paints including varnishes and coatings.

Paints & coatings segment is expected to register the highest CAGR in global metal biocides market during the forecast period, owing to increasing demand for metal biocides in household paints, varnishes, marine antifouling agents, etc., due to their effectiveness in inhibiting the growth of algae and fungi on applied paints.

Based on type, global metal biocides market has been segmented into silver, copper & alloys, zinc and others. In 2018, the silver-based metal biocide segment dominated the market and is expected to grow at the fastest rate in coming years. The growth of this segment is supplemented by the non-toxic, environment friendly and sustainable nature of silver biocide. Despite the high cost, silver biocide is widely used in the healthcare industry, owing to its high thermal stability, effectiveness, unsurpassed safety, and the fact that it is approved by the Environment Protection Agency (EPA).

Asia-Pacific, North America and Europe have been considered as the main metal biocide markets for the report. North America is the largest market for metal biocides, globally, owing to the presence of key market players Troy Corporation, Milliken Chemical Company and Noble Biomaterials Inc., in the region. Intense competition among the major market players led to a price stabilization in the past few years. The growing demand for metal biocides in the medical and foods & beverages industries in the US is expected to drive the region’s metal biocides market during forecast period.

Global metal biocides market is growing at a moderate rate. Stringent regulations for the production and consumption of metal biocides coupled with the requirement of high capital investments are the key factors restraining market growth. These factors create a huge entry barrier for new entrants in global metal biocides market, which in turn discourages competition and lowers overall market growth.

Some of the key players operating in the market include BASF SE, Clariant AG, DowDuPont Inc., Lonza Group Ltd., Troy Corporation, Milliken Chemical Company, Sanitized AG, Steritouch Ltd., Noble Biomaterials Inc. and Renaissance Chemicals Ltd.
