Global Algaecides Market Forecast 

In 2022, the Algaecides Market was appraised at USD 4.7 Billion. By 2023, the Algaecides market application is anticipated to ascend from USD 5.0 Billion to USD 8.0 Billion by 2032, demonstrating a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.12% throughout the forecast duration spanning from 2023 to 2032.

Algaecides help in killing and preventing the growth of algae. Increasing population and growing demand for food have led to high agricultural productivity which is driving the growth of the algaecides market. Moreover, limited availability of cultivable land is boosting the demand for algaecides to increase farm productivity.

Algaecides is a chemical treatment designed to kill and prevent algae growth. There are mainly two types of algaecides such as natural algaecides and synthetic algaecides. They are applicable in agriculture, surface water treatment, aquaculture, and others. It is mainly used in aquaculture to promote aquatic life by preventing algae growth which inhibits the growth of the aquatic life. Moreover, it is used in agriculture to prevent the degradation of soil quality caused by algae. Increasing pollution has caused an increase in the growth of algae and raised the need for algaecides.

Major factors such as water, temperature, rain, sunlight, pH, and mineral content are driving the growth of algaecides market. Moreover, increasing demand for fish among the population is supporting the growth of algaecides among the farm fishes. However, stringent regulations on the use of algaecides may hamper the growth of algaecides market.
