Global Specialty Biocides Market: Increasing use of silver-based biocides
In recent years, silver has become the most preferred choice of metallic compound-based specialty biocides. It is mainly used to inhibit the growth of many types of microbes because of its low toxicity for humans and animals. It also prevents deteriorating effects such as discoloration, physical damage, corrosion, and foul odor. Currently, silver-based biocides are increasingly used in medical and healthcare fields, including therapies, because of its antimicrobial properties. For instance, medical implants are coated with various forms of silver to prevent infections. The increasing adoption of silver-based specialty biocides for various applications such as healthcare, plastic, and paints and coatings are expected to drive the growth of the market during the forecast period.
“Apart from the increasing use of silver-based biocides, the rising demand for specialty biocides for use on construction materials is one other factor that is boosting the expansion of the market. The growth of construction activities and increasing investments in construction projects are expected to raise the demand for construction materials such as paints and coatings, concrete, wood, and ceiling systems. Specialty biocides are used to protect these materials from spoilage and microbial contamination. Because of these factors, the market for specialty biocides is expected to showcase a positive outlook over the next few years,” says a senior analyst at Technavio.
