Biocides

Demand will be supported by a strong rebound in construction expenditures, growth in consumer spending and manufacturing output, and continued expansion in hydraulic fracturing activities.

US demand to rise 4% annually through 2018

Demand for specialty biocides in the US is forecast to rise 4.0 percent per year to $3.9 billion in 2018. In volume terms, demand is expected to increase 1.0 percent annually to 1.5 billion pounds over the same period. A strong rebound in construction expenditures will support demand for biocides in the wood preservation and paint and coatings markets, while growth in consumer spending and manufacturing output will support demand for biocides used in the production of various manufactured goods. A continued expansion in hydraulic fracturing activities, which require well stimulation fluids that contain biocides, will promote demand for biocides in the smaller energy market.

Industrial markets to remain dominant

Improving economic conditions, coupled with a rising emphasis on improved sanitation in production processes and workplaces, will be the primary driver of growth in the industrial markets for biocides. Biocides for use in cleaning products are expected to remain the largest industrial market, and will show favorable growth prospects going forward as concerns about healthcare-associated infections, food contamination, and other health issues continue to rise. The paint and coatings market for biocides is also expected to show favorable growth opportunities through 2018, with biocide use supported by increasing demand for paint in new construction and building maintenance applications, and by the continued growth in demand for water-based architectural paints, which require higher levels of biocides. Demand for biocides in other industrial markets, such as food and beverages, cosmetics and toiletries, and pulp and paper, will be supported by rising output from these industries and continued emphasis on reducing harmful microbial populations.

Smaller energy markets to be fastest growing

Biocide demand in the energy markets -- including oilfield, pipeline, and refinery and additive applications -- is expected to perform particularly well through 2018. Growth will be supported by the increase in the use of hydraulic fracturing techniques, as tight oil and shale gas formations continue to play important roles in the US energy industry and as overall production has increased. The well stimulation fluids used in hydraulic fracturing typically require biocides to prevent corrosion and production issues that may be caused by bacterial contamination. Additionally, concerns about the negative environmental impacts of some types of biocides have contributed to greater interest in higher value biocides that can be used in smaller dosages and are less environmentally harmful.

Study coverage

This Freedonia industry study, Biocides, presents historical demand data for 2003, 2008 and 2013, and forecasts for 2018 and 2023 by product (e.g., halogen compounds, metallic compounds, phenolic compounds, nitrogen compounds, organosulfurs, organic acids, glutaraldehyde), function (e.g., preservative and additive, water treatment, processing) and market (e.g., industrial, consumer and commercial, energy).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 32 industry competitors, including Dow Chemical, Lonza Group and Ecolab.
