Market Scenario:

Molluscicides are used to control mollusks which include shellfish, octopi, squid, snails, and slugs. Snails and slugs are found in almost every cropping system and cause a serious damage to the crop quality which has increased the need for molluscicides. Few common molluscicides are metaldehyde, iron phosphate, niclosamide, and others. They disrupt the gastric organs of slugs and snails leading to their death. However, owing to high toxic content, their use may also harm nearby beneficial insects which is a major concern.

Molluscicides are used to promote plant health by destroying mollusks present in the agricultural land. They are applicable to oilseeds & pulses, cereals & grains, fruits & vegetables, and others. The continuous rising population is increasing the demand for high agricultural productivity and boosting the growth of global molluscicides market. Moreover, high organic matter builds up in the soil is assisting the growth of slugs and snails which is driving the molluscicides market.

Change in farming practices and technology leading to increasing acceptance of modern farming and protected agriculture is boosting the growth of the molluscicides market. Moreover, increasing demand for horticulture in developed countries of North America and Europe is further boosting the need for molluscicides to increase farm productivity. However, several environmental and health hazards caused due to molluscicides is restraining the growth of the market. Nevertheless, organic molluscicides market can act as an opportunity for molluscicides market.
