Aquatic herbicides are pesticides developed to eliminate weeds in ponds or other similar aquatic environment. It can kill pond weeds, lake weeds, and pond algae. It can come in granular or liquid forms. Aquatic herbicides can ensure the growth of plants and foster the growth of aquatic flora and fauna. The global aquatic herbicide market report by Market Research Future (MRFR) asserts the various factors, opportunities, and drawbacks for the period between 2019 and 2024 (forecast period).

Market Outlook

The global aquatic herbicide market size can touch USD 721.1 million by 2024 while exhibiting a CAGR of 6.4% during the forecast period. The rising trend of aquaculture is expected to drive the market growth exponentially. Government approval granted to citizens to foster fishes can bode well for the market. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), only 13 out of 300 herbicides have been granted approval for commercialization.

Large number of man-made reservoirs, construction of farm ponds for storage and distribution of water, and rise of fishery are notable factors driving the global aquatic herbicide market growth. Moreover, methods developed by scientists in altering the aquatic environment to prevent the growth of weeds can augur favorably for the market.

But long response times of these fertilizers and negative public perception can pose challenges to the market growth.

Competitive Outlook

Lonza Group Ltd, Sanco Industries, Inc, Nufarm Ltd, Land O’Lakes Inc, The Dow Chemical Company, UPL INDIA LTD, Valent BioSciences LLC, Aquacide Company, Albaugh LLC, Monsanto Company, Syngenta AG, BASF SE, SOLitude Lake Management, SePRO Corporation, Alligare, and others are reputed companies currently operating in the global aquatic herbicide market.

Segmentation Analysis

The global aquatic herbicide market is segmented based on type, mode of application, mode of action, and application.

The global market for aquatic herbicide, by type is segmented into Imazapyr, 2-4-D, glyphosate, and others. Glyphosate can command the market’s leading position till 2024 owing to its high effectiveness and easy application.

The market, by mode of application, is segmented into foliar and submerged. Foliar sprays are presumed to gain the lead in the market due to its high demand and ease in application.

By mode of action, it is divided into selective and non-selective. Non-selective herbicides attack indiscriminately on all plants in the aquatic environment, while the selective herbicides segment can be selective in its targets and protect other living entities. Among the two, selective herbicides are projected to dominate the global aquatic herbicide market till 2024.

Based on application, the market is segmented into recreational waters, agricultural waters, and fisheries. Agricultural waters will be the biggest application owing to government approval and subsidies given to farmers to faster cultivation of aquatic ecosystems.
