Molluscicides help in improving agricultural productivity by killing mollusks such as shellfish, octopi, squid, snails, and slugs in the plantation. Increasing population and growing demand for food have led to high agricultural productivity which is driving the growth of the molluscicides market. Moreover, limited availability of cultivable land is boosting the demand for molluscicides to increase farm productivity.
Molluscicides are chemical substances or biocides developed specifically for destroying mollusks.
Mollusks cause huge agricultural losses and have become a major agricultural threat. They feed both above and below the surface of the ground, on seeds, seedlings, and plants, damaging the roots, leaves, and flowers which reduce the plant growth and crop yield. Plant residues and organic manure on soil surface along with the moist conditions leads to the production of mollusks. Most commonly used molluscicides include metaldehyde, iron phosphate, niclosamide, and others.
Growing acceptance of modern farming is adding fuel to the growth of molluscicides market. Owing to improve the efficiency of molluscicides, major players are investing in research and development and introducing bio molluscicides which have opened doors for the growth of global molluscicides market. However, stringent regulations on the use of molluscicides may hamper the growth of molluscicides market. Nevertheless, all these factors are projected to contribute to the estimated CAGR of 3.9% of molluscicides market during the forecast period 2017-2023.
