The global algaecides market was valued at US$1.770 billion in 2017 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 5.94% over the forecast period to reach US$2.502 billion by 2023. Algaecides are chemicals which are used for the eradication of algae growth in lakes, ponds, pools and other water bodies. Most algaecides are effective against green algae. It is quite difficult to kill black algae because of its waxy coating; hence most algaecides are designed to remove black algae. Available algaecides include copper sulphate, chelated copper and quaternary ammonia among others. North America and Europe hold a significant market share while Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing market.
