Within the Wood Preservatives Sector

Friday April 7, 12:00 pm ET

DUBLIN, Ireland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 7, 2006--Research and Markets has announced the addition of Biocides in Wood Preservation Global Report - 2006 to their offering.

This report provides in depth information on the market for biocide products within Wood Preservation. It includes detailed market analyses and discussions of industry trends. It assesses the impact of current and emerging regulations on the biocides used. The report develops forecasts for biocides from 2006 through 2011. It discusses the efforts of biocide manufacturers and formulators in launching new biocide formulations to meet changing market requirements, for example build up of resistance, lower costs, regulations.

The report also provides an overview for biocides for each of the major geographical regions. It provides value and volume data for different biocides. In addition, the report provides a summary of each of the biocides that are being used to control microbes within consumer and industrial applications. Industry influences on the biocides market are also discussed.

The scope of the study is worldwide. The overview section provides extended definitions of the biocides to provide the reader with a clear understanding of the technology involved. In addition, this section provides an analysis of biocide consumption by application and region. There is a profile of an ideal biocide as outlined by end users.

The company profiles section includes a detailed discussion of the companies that have pioneered biocide development and examines how their available products and services are setting the standards for preservation.

In this report more than 30 companies are discussed, and 10 of the most important companies are examined in depth. The base year for this study is 2005. Figures are based on revenue figures at the manufacturers' level and also at the formulated products level and are projected at 2005-U.S. dollar value.

This report answers these sector questions:

  • What are the future directions of the biocide industry?
  • What are the most important biocides being used in enduser applications today?
  • What are the most promising biocides?
  • What impact will regulations have on biocides consumption?

This report includes application sector strategic analysis including:

  • Industry Overview
  • Biocide comparison and market shares
  • Evolution and adoption of trends
  • Leading suppliers and distribution channels
  • Increased Regulatory Impact on Business and Technology

List of Tables in Biocides Report

Summary

The global consumption of biocides in Wood Preservation was $ 540 million at active manufacture level in 2005 and $ 980 million at formulated products. This performance reflects not only end industry growth, regulatory and technological changes but also the growing use of Biocides as hygiene aids especially in Engineered Wood Products. The market for Biocides in Wood Preservatives will continue to grow due to the switch from solvent based to water based systems and the replacement of traditional biocides by more expensive environmentally Biocides. In addition, new market sectors are emerging such as Engineered Wood Products.

Specialty biocides includes fungicides and insecticides. North America accounted for approximately 40% of this total. But several factors are combining to bring the total market value up and the North American percentage down, according to us.
