Crop protection is a science of protecting plants/crops from weeds, pests, and various diseases that damage crops and trees and the crop yield. Crop protection chemicals are used to keep weeds and pests from destroying crops, and to enhance crop yield.
The global crop protection chemicals market is estimated to value of over US$ 60 Bn in 2017, and is projected to register a CAGR of 5.5% in terms of value during forecast period 2017–2026. The first five-year cumulative revenue (2017–2021) is projected to be over US$ 330 Bn, which is estimated to increase moderately over the latter part of the five-year forecast period.
Global Crop Protection Chemicals Market Dynamics:
Major factors driving growth of the global crop protection chemicals market are increasing need for food protection and need to enhance crop yield. Rising need to ensure availability of food to meet the demand of growing population across the world is another key factor expected to lead to increasing utilization of crops protection chemicals.
Rapid urbanization across the globe has led to decrease in arable land, which has led to limited land availability, potential crop diseases, insects, pest, owing to which it has become necessary to ensure crop safety so as to obtain maximum yield.
Stringent regulations towards use of synthetic pesticides is a major factor hampering growth of the global crop protection chemicals market. Some crop protection chemicals cause illness in human beings, and also have adverse effects on the environment. As a result, governmental bodies are imposing stringent regulations to monitor production and distribution of such synthetic chemicals, and are banning their use for agricultural purposes.
However, increasing production of bio-pesticides on a large scale is a major factor expected to create lucrative business opportunities for major manufacturers in the global market over the forecast period. The current trend observed in the global market is increasing applications of herbicides and weedicides to control growth of the unwanted weeds and plant without harming the crop. This factor is expected to further drive growth of the global crop protection chemicals market to a significant extent over the next 10 years.
