North America biocides market accounted for over 40% of the global revenue in 2014.
For the purpose of this study, Grand View Research has segmented the global biocide market on the basis of product, application and region:
First, the consolidation in the paint industry has resulted in the formation of fewer, global formulators that are looking for globally approved biocide formulations, which are challenging to develop given the disparity of biocide regulations around the world," says Singhal.
One of the biocide industry's responses was to form Oregonians for Food and Shelter in 1980.
The objectives of this preliminary study were (1) to determine the biocide retention variation for 4 by 4 nominal posts (actual dimensions were 3.
In the early 1990s, conservators scrubbed a thick layer of moss and lichens from the temple and sprayed biocides over the structure's sandstone surfaces.
Presentations on the second day of the conference will explore antimicrobial coating systems, showing a large variety of systems proposed to make surfaces antimicrobially active, including inorganic silver particles, blends of organic biocides, surface modifications or polycationic polymer biocides.
Gains for food and beverage biocides will be fastest in Asia and other developing areas, where use of chemical preservatives is now becoming widespread and growth in food and beverage processing itself is generally more rapid.
This typically includes treating all the potential sources of incoming contamination, such as fresh water, additives, and fiber; using a stock biocide treatment program that keeps the stock, especially the broke and recycled Furnishes, in check; plus, if necessary, an oxidizing treatment for the white water.
The incorporation of biocides in plastics and rubbers helps in reducing cost and effort required in cleaning especially, in demanding sectors such as food processing plants, hospitals, and home care.
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.
