With the alarming surge in the global population, the demand for food has increased fourfold over the past century. In a number countries with high population growth rate, people are suffering from food insecurity, which has led to the rising need to increase the crop yield. This, as a result, has fueled the demand for bactericides across the world, reflecting considerably on the global market for bactericides.

The leading players in this market have concentrated their research and development efforts on the advancement of products conforming to the European rules and regulations for antibacterial products, since these rules are said to be the benchmarks in terms of the quality and the environmental impacts of these chemicals. However, several factors, such as the dearth of awareness among agriculturists and farmers and the increasing incidence of environmental toxicology, may act as restraints in the growth trajectory of this market in the near future.

A bactericide, also called bacteriocide, is a substance that kills or inhibits the growth of bacteria. Bactericides can be classified as disinfectants, antiseptics, or antibiotics. Bactericides have been created to kill harmful bacteria, whilst not harming the important good bacteria. Bactericides are also used as antiseptics and are applied on the skin or tissue that has been damaged. This is to prevent the wound or tissue from getting infected by any form of bacteria or microorganisms. Disinfectants, unlike antiseptics or antibiotics, are not meant for usage on the human body and are applied over non-living surfaces in order to cleanse the surfaces off any microorganisms that might be present on them and could be harmful when made contact with. A classic example of a disinfectant can be the household dishwashing soap. These substances aid the disinfection of any microorganisms present on dishes and cleanse them for future use, providing a hygienic clean surface.

The global bactericide market can segmented on the basis of type, mode of application, crop type, and bactericide form type. The mode of application segment can be further sub-segmented into foliar spray and soil treatment. Foliar spray is the main mode of the application and primarily employed by farmers due to its ease of usage and high efficiency. Foliar spray is beneficial for a plant suffering from various nutrient deficiencies. A foliar spray sprays fertilizer directly on the leaves and not on the soil. This protects the soil from further exploitation. Spraying of bactericides by foliar spray reduces the cost of crop production by reducing machinery costs and labor cost. Therefore, it helps the farmer to grow crops efficiently. The crop type segment can be further sub-segmented into cereals & grains, fruits & vegetables, oilseeds & pulses, and other crop types. The factors boosting the expansion of the cereals & grains segment are the rise in the awareness of benefits, and nutrition derived from cereals & grains. Moreover, people are moving toward a healthy diet, hence the demand for exotic and tropical fruits is increasing in the developing economies.

The main driver for the bactericides market is the rising demand for food. Several countries across the globe are witnessing a rapid increase in population and issues regarding food. Rising population increases the challenge of sufficiently meeting the nutritional needs. To overcome this, crop protection is must, which is provided by pesticides such as bactericide. Increasing demand for food by the population is impacting the agricultural markets. Farmers around the globe need to increase crop production, by improving productivity on present agricultural lands by using bactericides. Thus, the crops need to be protected from fungal and bacterial infections in order to fulfil the demand for food by the rising population. This emerging need of food security is boosting the market. Rising cases of bacterial infections in crops is also driving the market. Stringent government regulations, and detrimental impact of overdose of bactericide are the main factors that are restraining the bactericide market.
