Molluscicides are special categories of pesticides that are exclusively used against molluscs. It finds applications in gardening as well as large scale agriculture for controlling gastropod pests. Common target molluscs include snails and slugs that feed on crops. They can destroy the leaves of many plant species. They primarily predate on seedlings and herbaceous plants with an affinity for ripening fruits at ground level as well, such as tomatoes, strawberries etc. Molluscs are easily spottable by farmers and gardeners due to the tell-tale sign of silvery trails of mucus left behind by them. Other than their pestering in gardens and fields, molluscs can also decrease industrial efficiency by clogging pipes and damaging equipment.

Request Sample:

Although a variety of Molluscicides are available in the market, most of them have a similar method of action. Open encountering the ‘bait’, molluscs ingest the chemical and thereafter the ingested substance manipulates the water balance of the mollusc. By this action, the mollusc can encounter organ failure and loss of normal body functions. From a scientific point of view, Molluscicides are classified into Oxidizing and Non-oxidizing. Of the two, non-oxidizing ones are more popular due to their cost efficiency. Although comparatively more expensive than their oxidizing counterparts, only smaller quantities are required thereby decreasing the overall money spent.

Molluscicides Market: Drivers & Restraints
The Molluscicides market is driven by several factors such as the increasing adoption of agrochemicals by developing nations, the high demand for high quality horticulture crops, the call for increased efficiency in food production, the decline in the amount of arable land further requiring increased efficiency per hectare, the growing awareness about the threats posed by molluscs toward agriculture. As for the threats posed to the growth of the market, the major one is the government regulations due to the increased toxicity of molluscicides and their adverse effect on non-target organisms.

Molluscicides Market: Overview
Molluscicides are an entirely independent class of chemicals and cannot be replaced by using other insecticides and so it forms a separate market. Crop cultivation techniques have changed over the years and now it involves minimum tillage of land, direct drilling and high organic matter content in the soil. This is all optimum conditions or the thriving of slugs and snails, further amplifying the problem and leading to severe damage to the crops. Currently the preferred chemical methods for controlling the problem is based on Metaldehyde, Ferric Phosphate or Methiocarb. Methiocarb is a carbamate compound which is highly toxic to mammals. Since in addition to killing slugs, they are also insecticides, their use can lead to the unwarranted death of useful insects in the ecosystem. Metaldehyde and Ferric phosphate are less toxic when compared to Methiocarb but the decreased toxicity also decreases its effectiveness in slug control.

The major market share is accounted by Metaldehyde based Molluscicides. The different modes of application for Molluscicides include via sprays or dusts, using granules or bait pellets. The point of application is usually over the ground around the concerned crops.
