Agricultural Fumigants Market by Product Type (Methyl Bromide, Phosphine, Chloropicrin), Crop Type (Cereals, Oilseeds, Fruits), Application (Soil, Warehouse), Pest Control Method (Tarpaulin, Non-Tarp, Vacuum), and Region - Global Forecast to 2022
“The agricultural fumigants market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.10%”
The global agricultural fumigants market is estimated at USD 1.59 billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 1.94 billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 4.10%. The agricultural fumigants market is driven by the increasing quality and safety concerns about the agricultural produce among consumers, growing focus on increasing agricultural production, and inclination toward post-harvest losses. Increasing tolerance to several fumigants and ban on certain fumigants have been considered as the restraining factors for the market.
“Chloropicrin is projected to be the fastest-growing product type for agricultural fumigants during the forecast period”
One of the major drivers for the growth of the chloropicrin segment is contributed by its broad-spectrum activity against a wide range of pests ranging from nematodes, weed seeds, insects, bacteria, and soil-borne fungus diseases. It is increasingly used as a soil agricultural fumigant which has led to the growing demand for chloropicrin agricultural fumigants for better crop production and reduced post-harvest losses. Also, the restricted use of fumigants such as methyl bromide due to the phasing out of this fumigant in several countries has further supported the growth of chloropicrin in the agricultural fumigants market.
“Fruits & vegetables is projected to be the fastest-growing crop type for agricultural fumigants during the forecast period”
One of the drivers for the growth of the fruits & vegetables segment is the increasing focus on the protection of fresh fruit from pest infestation during its export and import. Also, fumigation of such perishable produce is of prime importance to meet its increased demand, globally. The increased demand for fruits & vegetables further supports the growth of the agricultural fumigants market.
“Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing region for agricultural fumigants during the forecast period”
The Asia Pacific agricultural fumigants market is led by the increasing number of applications of major agricultural fumigants for cereals and grains and for other stored agricultural commodities such as corn, pulses, wheat, rice, and soybean. The increasing demand for food arising from unprecedented economic growth in highly populated emerging economies such as China and India over the past decade has fueled the growth of the agricultural fumigants market.
