The global water treatment biocides market size is expected to worth USD 6.10 Billion by 2028, and register a revenue CAGR of 6.3% over the forecast period. The revenue growth of the market can be resultant of increasing biocides’ utilization in water treatment to control microbial growth. Growing need for increasing effectiveness of water treatment plants has resulted in the rapid adoption of biocides for water treatment. Additionally, increasing hygiene requirements for several public facilities including swimming pools have driven the use of biocides for water treatment. Therefore, growing awareness about health and hygiene is one of the primary factors augmenting demand for water treatment biocides, thus, supporting the revenue growth of the global water treatment biocides market.
Biocides for water treatment have been gaining importance globally, due to their broad array of applications, ranging from municipality as well as swimming pools water treatment to water treatment in several industries, including power plants, oil & gas, pulp & paper, and mining. Uncontrolled microbial growth can result in various complications like health hazards, breakdown of chemicals, development of biofilms, heat transfer losses, under-deposit corrosion, and restriction of flow.
Increasing requirement for safe and clean drinking water across the globe, and scarcity of freshwater resources are contributing to the fast implementation of biocides for water treatment. Moreover, rising need for eliminating different types of waterborne pathogens from drinking water, which affect the health of a considerable population, is further augmenting the demand for water treatment biocides.
In the industries like oil & gas and pulp & paper, non-oxidizing biocides are widely utilized for water treatment. Furthermore, high-performance non-oxidizing biocides are extensively used in controlling the microbiological activity in several industrial processes, various water treatment activities, commercial cleaning, disinfection, and environmental hygiene activities.
