According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Crop Protection Chemicals Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028," the global crop protection chemicals market size reached US$ 88.0 Billion in 2022. Crop protection chemicals, also known as agrochemicals, are substances used in agricultural practices to prevent crop deterioration from pests, diseases, and weeds. It includes pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, rodenticides, nematicides, molluscicides, pheromones, and plant growth regulators. These chemicals are manufactured using synthetic and natural active ingredients, solvents, adjuvants, diluents, surfactants, preservatives, emulsifiers, and binders. Crop protection chemicals are widely used for improving plant growth, preventing crop diseases, and controlling the spread of mites, bacteria, weeds, rats, mice, aphids, caterpillars, and other pests. They are safe, cost-effective, and highly beneficial products that improve crop yield, enhance quality, prevent losses, increase farmer profit, and reduce manual labor.
Crop Protection Chemicals Market Trends:
The significant growth in the agriculture industry is one of the primary factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Crop protection chemicals are widely used in the farming of cereals, grains, fruits, vegetables, oilseeds, and pulses, to control pests and diseases, enhance protection, prevent crop loss, and improve overall yield. In addition to this, the widespread product utilization to ensure food security due to the rising global population is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the increasing product demand among farmers due to the growing adoption of modern agricultural practices to combat climate change, increase profit, save resources, and protect the crop from new and emerging pests and diseases is favoring the market growth. Additionally, the integration of nanotechnology to improve the delivery of crop protection chemicals, reduce the amount required per crop, and increase product shelf-life, is providing an impetus to the market growth. Besides this, the recent development of the microencapsulation technique, which allows the release of chemicals in a controlled manner, increases overall efficiency, and minimizes adverse environmental impact, is positively influencing the market growth. Moreover, increasing government initiatives to educate farmers, spread awareness, and promote the adoption of crop protection chemicals to enhance food production is propelling the market growth. Other factors, including rapidly decreasing arable lands, rising food consumption, increasing investment in the research and development (R&D) of advanced products, the implementation of various government initiatives promoting the utilization of sustainable crop protection products, and widespread adoption of environment-friendly insecticides and biopesticides derived from bacteria and animal-based sources, are anticipated to drive market growth. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market value is expected to reach US$ 116.5 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.28% during 2023-2028.
