Algaecide is used to kill and prevent the growth of algae or cyanobacteria. They are two types of algaecide, which comprise natural and synthetic algaecides. They are usually used to prevent filamentous, branched, as well as planktonic algae. Algaecide depends upon some factors such as quantities of application, water chemistry, and product formulation, among others. There are various types of algaecides
Chelated Copper: It works better than copper sulfate algaecides as it prevents both filamentous and planktonic algae.
Quaternary Ammonium Compounds: It works better against the green algae as it destroys their cellular membrane. It is not expensive and widely used for swimming pools.
Peroxyacetic Acid & Hydrogen Dioxide: It is a non-toxic algaecide that oxidizes fungi (including spores), bacteria, and viruses. It works on phytopathogenic organisms.
Dyes & Colorants: It is a type of algaecide that enhances the appearance of water features with a colorant such as blue. It also controls the growth of several types of aquatic weeds and algae.
- Regulation (EU) No 528/2012, stated that, Alguinet, with the active substance copper sulphate pentahydrate, at a level of 100% w/w, may be authorized for use as an algaecide (product-type 02) for the control of algal growth by trained professional, professional and non-professional users.
COVID-19 had a Minimal Impact on Algaecides Market
COVID-19 impacted various manufacturing industries in the year 2020-2021 as it led to the closure of workplaces, disruption of supply chains, and restrictions on transportation. However, no significant impact was noticed on their algaecides Middle East and Africa operations and supply chain, as import and export of vaccines and essential goods led to increasing demand of algaecides. With this growing awareness and governmental push to the research and development and introducing new kind of algaecides increasing the growth of algaecides market.
The Market Dynamics of the Algaecides Market Include:
Drivers/Opportunities faced by the Algaecides Market
- Rise in concern and awareness regarding the conservation of the environment and ecosystem
Rising awareness regarding the harmful effects of algae formation pushes consumers to use algaecides. Algae lead to damage health of marine as well as human health. To prevent or stop algae formation, many government bodies and manufacturers are focused on people being aware and customers about algaecides. Hence, rising concern and awareness regarding the conservation of the environment and ecosystem leads to the market's growth.
- Rise in demand for algaecides in various end use applications such as aquaculture and surface water treatment
Algaecides are widely used for both aquaculture and surface water treatment. Many companies and manufacturers are providing algaecides to prevent the growth of algae and help in the efficient working of aquaculture and surface water treatment. Thus, the rising demand for algaecides in various end-use applications such as aquaculture and surface water treatment leads to the market's growth.
- Spike in demand for air conditioning systems
Algaecides are widely used to treat and clean the algae formation in the air conditioners. With the increased demand for air conditioners across the globe, the demand for algaecides is expected to grow in the future. Thus spike in demand for air conditioning systems will lead to the market's growth.
- Increase in disposable income of consumers
People nowadays prefer to live a luxurious lifestyle. Even apartments in metro cities have mini balcony swimming pools attached to them, which has also increased the demand for algaecides in-home usage. Disposable income plays an important role in the growth of the algaecides market as the increased disposable income allows individuals to live a quality lifestyle. the increasing disposable income of consumers across the globe increased customers' purchasing power and improved their quality of living, thus giving great growth opportunities to the Middle East and Africa algaecides market.
Restraints/Challenges faced by the Algaecides Market
- Stringent government regulation on algaecides
Varied associations such as EPA and E.U. have applied regulations or guidelines for algaecides' application, usage, and transportation. The E.U. Commission has confirmed that certain silver compounds will not be approved for use in biocidal (such as antimicrobial) products. This could have implications within and beyond the E.U., including in the U.S. and in the other markets where various "silver-treated" products are manufactured for distribution worldwide. Therefore, stringent government regulations and guidelines for the usage and direct application of algaecides that may be harmful to any living being, such as humans or animals, are expected to restrain the growth of the algaecides market
- Supply chain disruption
The COVID-19 pandemic caused a sudden lockdown in many parts of the world to prevent the spread of the virus, which resulted in the rapid closing down of factories and shops, among others. The problems faced by workers, laborers, wagers, and manufacturers worldwide and the disrupted supply chain across the globe due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the Russia-Ukraine war are expected to pose a challenge for the growth of the Middle East and Africa algaecides market.
