Report ID: 131067 3300 Chemical & Material 377 249 Pages 4.9 (43)

Market Overview:

The global metaldehyde market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to factors such as an increase in demand for metaldehyde from agricultural and gardening applications, and rising awareness about the benefits of using metaldehyde products. However, stringent regulations on the use of metaldehyde products may hamper the growth of this market during the forecast period. Based on type, 99% Metaldehyde is expected to account for a larger share of the global market than 98% Metaldehyde during the forecast period. This can be attributed to its superior properties compared with 98% Metaldehyde, which makes it more suitable for certain applications such as agriculture and gardening. Based on application, agricultural applications are expected to account for a larger share of the global market than other applications duringthe forecast period.

Global Metaldehyde Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Metaldehyde is a chemical used as a pesticide. It is used to kill slugs and snails.

99% Metaldehyde:

99% metaldehyde, also known as carbolic acid or carboilic acid, is an organic compound and a form of acetic acid. It has a strong odor similar to that of nail polish remover and causes severe skin reactions. The substance is used in the production of pesticides, pharmaceuticals, dyes & pigments and other products which are further utilized globally.

98% Metaldehyde:

Metaldehyde is an organic compound and a formaldehyde. It is also known as 1,4-Dihydroxy-2-butanol or 2-(1,4-dihydroxymethyl)-1,3 butanediol. 98% methanol can be formulated by using nonyl alcohol as the starting material which is derived from renewable resources like corn starch or sugarcane bagasse.

Application Insights:

The application of metaldehyde includes agricultural, gardening and others. The demand for the product from the agricultural sector is expected to witness growth at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period owing to its use as a soil fumigant and germicide in agriculture. It is also used as an active ingredient in liquid formulations for termite control, which are applied directly into woodwork or around joints of buildings where termites hide their nests.

Metaldehyde has been used extensively in household applications such as cleaning products, paints and coatings, adhesives/sealants among others due to its high toxicity towards humans (LD50 >5 g/kg). In addition, it has low volatility which makes it suitable for indoor applications compared with other chemicals that are commonly used for these purposes globally.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the largest regional market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region accounts for approximately 60% of global population and more than 40% of global GDP. Thus, it has a significant impact on the overall industry growth through its consumption patterns. China is projected to remain a key consumer as well as producer owing to low manufacturing cost coupled with easy availability of land for expansion purposes.

The European market also accounted for a considerable share in terms of volume due to stringent regulations implemented by various governments regarding GHG emissions coupled with environmental concerns pertaining gardening products especially metaldehyde-based ones may pose harmful effects on human health and environment, thus restraining their demand majorly across Western Europe countries such as Germany, France, Italy etc., which are anticipated to hamper industry growth during the forecast period from 2018-2030  (see Table 1).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for fruits and vegetables due to changing lifestyle and dietary habits of people across the globe is expected to drive the growth of metaldehyde market.
  • Rising awareness about benefits of using metaldehyde as a pesticide is anticipated to fuel the growth of this market in near future.
  • Growing demand for organic fruits and vegetables is projected to create new opportunities for the players operating in this market during forecast period.
  • Stringent regulations against synthetic pesticides are likely to propel the demand for metaldehyde as a safer alternative in agriculture sector over next few years. 5) Technological advancements that help improve efficacy and safety profile of metaldehyde are expected to boost its adoption among farmers, thereby propelling the growth of this market during forecast period
