Global Molluscicides Market: Synopsis

The report published by Market Research Future (MRFR) states that the global the global Molluscicides Market is expected to register a CAGR of 8.67% from 2022 to 2030 and reach USD 889 million by the end of 2030. Mollusks are pests which feed on crops. Most common mollusks are snails and slugs. Snail and slugs feed on leaves, stems, and roots of plants.

Molluscicides are particularly developed for controlling and destroying the mollusks that feed on crops, leading to deterioration of crop quality and yield. Rapid rise in population is leading to an increased need for good quality food in the global market. Increasing demand for effective agrochemicals for controlling mollusk infestation on the crops and rise in utilization of molluscicides to improve the crop quality and productivity are majorly fueling the growth of the global molluscicides market. However, side effects of some molluscicides as they damage crops along with mollusks are restraining the growth of the global molluscicides market during the assessment period.
