Global Molluscicides Market (2021 to 2026) - Emerging Markets for Molluscicides in Asia-Pacific Presents Opportunities

Dublin, May 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Molluscicides Market by Type (Chemical [Metaldehyde, Methiocarb, Ferric Phosphate] And Biological Molluscicides), Application (Agricultural and Non-Agricultural), Form (Pellets, and Liquid & Gel), and Region - Global Trends & Forecast to 2026" report has been added to's offering.

The molluscicides market is estimated at USD 711 million in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 909 million by 2026. It is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.5% from 2021 to 2026.

The market is primarily driven the increased commercial production of horticulture crops such as fruits, vegetables, herbs, and nuts in recent years. The demand for such crops of refined and varied characteristics has been increasing worldwide, thereby increasing the market for molluscicides products.

Molluscicide resistance is the natural ability of mollusks to survive exposure to strong active chemicals due to genetic modification and exhibit low susceptibility levels. Attaining this is the major challenge faced by the molluscicides industry.

The agricultural segment is projected to grow at the higher rate during the forecast period.

On the basis of application, the agricultural segment is projected to grow at the higher CAGR. Snails impact most horticulture crops; this necessitates the adoption of agrochemicals for slug and snail control. Moreover, since the investment in production is usually higher in horticulture as compared to field crops, the growth in the horticulture industry becomes a driver for the market for molluscicides.

The biological molluscicides segment is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period.

Based on type, the biological molluscicides segment is projected to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. The increasing awareness about biological crop protection products has not only resulted in increased use of snail and slug control products but has also led to awareness about the potential for more profitable opportunities with minimum loss.

The pellets segment is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period.

Based on form, the pellets segment is projected to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. Pellet formulations are usually recommended for small as well large cures, as dusting powders are ready for use; are more easily applied compared to other methods; are easily supplied; and are available in proper small packs, which are reasonably priced and easy to use.

Asia Pacific is projected to register the highest growth rate during the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing market between 2021 and 2026. The usage of molluscicides is increasing gradually in developing economies due to continued growth in the major Asia Pacific economies and the increasing awareness about the use and benefits of molluscicides. The dominant form of agriculture in this region is wet-rice cultivation. These crops require a large amount of molluscicides. Thus, as food production is projected to increase in this region, so is the consumption of molluscicides.
