Water treatment is projected to be the largest and the third fastest-growing application segment in the North America biocides market between 2015 and 2020, in terms of value. This application is dominated by the chlorine-based biocides. Chlorine dioxide (CIO2) is used for oxidative and petrochemical applications, and for water deodorization and disinfection. Biocides used in water treatment inhibit the growth of algae, bacteria, yeasts, and fungi in water used for industrial applications. Food & beverage is the second-largest application segment. Biocides perform a dual function of preventing the spoilage of food and prevention of food-borne illness. They are applied on the surfaces, in food and water containers and equipment.

In above-ground and ground contact applications, various biocides are used to control fungal growth.
