Molluscicides Market: An Overview

Molluscicides are special type of pesticides which are used to kill mollusks, specifically slugs and snails. Of the various end users, demand for these pesticides continues to remain concentrated for agricultural and gardening industries. Molluscicides are sometimes referred as bait as they are also used to entice mollusks. When molluscicides are ingested or touched by the snail or slug, then the chemicals contained in molluscicides alter their water balance, and it inhibits some of their body functions resulting in their demise. Molluscicides’s benefits encourage their demand among the farmers and gardeners.

Farmers are focusing on implementing novel crop management techniques such as high organic build and direct drilling to improve their quality of crop production. However, implementation of these techniques has encouraged the growth of the slugs and snail on the crops and soil, which has significantly hampered crop productivity. To prevent the growth of snails and slugs, farmers are investing in effective pesticides such as molluscicides. These factors are expected to drive the growth of the global molluscicides market over the coming years.
