Market Insights

The Asia-Pacific molluscicides market of USD 98.95 million in 2013 is expected to reach USD XX million by 2022. The market is projected to witness a CAGR of XX%. The market potential for molluscicide remains strong here as China, Japan, India and Australia account for 76.6% of the Asia-Pacific molluscicides market.

Market Dynamics

The chemical molluscicides, such as metaldehyde, nicolsamide, sodium pentachlorophenate, nicotinanilide, and bromoacetamide, have been in use since the 1950s. However, the market is shifting towards more natural and less toxic products formulation like ferric phosphate. More than 50 plant species have been confirmed to contain components with molluscicidal activity against species like o.hupensis. The giant African land snail achatina fulica is one of the most serious land pest spread all across the region. Currently, control of snail and slugs is heavily dependent on synthetic pesticides i.e. molluscicide, which is the most convenient method for controlling terrestrial gastropod. Niclosamide and nicotinanilide are particularly useful to lymnaea luteola snails as they are toxic to all stages of the snail.

With rising crop losses due to slugs and snails farmers are inclined to use molluscicides as they cannot be substituted by other insecticides. Changes in the management of crops (such as minimum tillage, direct drilling, and high organic matter build up in the soil) have led to increased population densities of slugs and snails, further exacerbating this problem and resulting in more extensive and severe damage to crops.

Market Segmentation

Metaldehyde forms the largest market segment with XX% share, followed by niclosamide (XX%), ferric phosphate (XX%), methiocarb (XX%) and other bio-based molluscicides (XX%). By application, the molluscicides market has been segmented into grains and cereals, oilseeds, fruits and vegetables, ornamentals etc.
