Over the five years to 2017, companies have been negatively affected by declining demand and the subsequent reduction in industry product purchases from the agricultural sector. Additionally, volatile input prices have constrained profit margins. The ongoing adoption of genetically modified (GM) crops combined with lower farmer incomes, especially in the second half of the five-year period, caused revenue volatility to increase over the five years to 2017, with revenue estimated to decline. As the global supply glut of seeds and grains continues, crop production will continue to be negatively affected. In turn, demand for pesticides will decrease. Over the five years to 2022, industry revenue is projected to continue experiencing tough growth conditions, and revenue is expected to increase only slightly.
