The chemical molluscicides segment is estimated to hold the larger share

On the basis of type, the chemical molluscicides segment dominated the global molluscicides market in 2018. Metaldehyde and methiocarb are the main active ingredients used in chemical molluscicides. For many decades, chemical molluscicides have been widely used in the market. However, the US EPA restricts the use of metaldehyde as a pesticide due to its negative impact on the environment and on the health of animals and humans.

North America is estimated to dominate the molluscicides market

North America is estimated to be the largest market for molluscicides in 2018. The high production of corn, oilseeds, and horticulture crops in the region is the major driver for the molluscicides market. Bulk production of these crops creates the need for molluscicides to control insects, pests, and weeds for better and efficient production. The key players in the US market include AMVAC Chemical Corporation (US) and Marrone Bio Innovations Inc. (US). To gain market share, these companies are adopting strategies such as innovative product developments, partnerships, mergers & acquisitions, and expansions of existing facilities.stats
