Global Slimicides Market Introduction
Slimicides are chemical agents used for killing microorganisms that produce slime, such as bacteria, fungi, slime and algae. Slime is used in the papermaking process as a large amount of water is recirculated and different paper making chemicals are added during the process of papermaking for improving the quality of paper and increasing the process productivity. The temperature and pH of the recirculating water and other environmental conditions of the reused water are ideal for the growth of the bacteria and other microorganisms which produce slimes. Breaks and holes in the network of fibers or paper web, produced by slime lumps, can impact paper quality and its finishing. Slime can also be responsible for pipe clogging or nozzle blocks, which results in production breakdown and sudden shutdowns. This increases production and maintenance cost. Slimicides are used to avoid such breakdowns. The Paper industry is a major consumer of slimicides. Slimicides are a type of biocide and are generally compatible with various pH conditions. Slimicides also must be compatible with the additives used in the paper making process. Slimicides are of various chemical origins, including bromium, aldehydes, organic sulfur and quaternary ammonium compounds.
Market Dynamics of Slimicides Market
Increasing Demand for Process Improvement Chemicals from Paper Making Industry Pushing the Growth of Slimicides Market
The Paper Industry is going through a dynamic stage and cost saving and quality improvement are at the center of the strategies being followed by paper industry players. Rise in demand for paper processing chemicals to improve process quality is expected to drive the slimicides market during the forecast period. The growth of the paper industry is being pushed by the growth of the paper and packaging industry globally. Emerging markets are also creating paper demand because of the expanding middle class in these markets. Demand from hygiene products is one of the major drivers for the paper industry now a days. Increasing demand for paper is ultimately pushing the paper making industry and in turn, accelerating the demand for slimicides.
Rising environmental, political and economic pressures on paper making industry
Stringent environmental regulations pertaining to waste water and other effluents from the paper industry are anticipated to be a restraining factor for the growth of the slimicides market. The Paper industry consumes a large amount of wood. Regional laws and regulations regarding tree cutting and use of paper are expected to negatively impact the growth of the paper industry in developed economies. Slimicides come under biocides and are bound to follow regulations imposed on the use of biocides. Increasing number of regulations from various authorities, including EPA, REACH and others, on the use of chemical biocides will impact the potential growth of slimicides market during the forecast period.
Slimicides Market Trends: New developments in the field of biocides are expected to create new opportunities for slimicides
Continuous research and development in the field of biocides is pushing the demand for efficient biocides in the papermaking industry. New materials with better properties to kill slime and other unwanted microorganisms are being developed. These materials are not only effective, they are also less harmful for the environment as these materials are needed only in a small quantity. Slimicides manufacturers are entering into long-term contracts with paper making companies to enhance their presence in the market.
Slimicides Market: Regional Outlook
Asia Pacific leads the global slimicides market due to increasing demand from the growing paper and pulp industry in the region. Increasing middle class population in emerging economies of Asia Pacific is supporting the growth of the paper making industry in the region. High GDP growth in the region is also bolstering industrial production and packaging industry, which is expected to push the growth of the paper industry, in turn pushing the growth in demand for slimicides. Europe will follow Asia Pacific, in terms of demand for slimicides. However, stringent regulations in Europe will affect the potential growth of the slimicides market in this region. North America will follow the Europe slimicides market during the forecast period. Increasing prices of paper and packaging materials in North America will increase profit margins for papermaking players. This will further push the papermaking business in North America, in turn driving the demand for slimicides to improve paper quality.
