Crop Protection Chemicals Market by Type (Herbicides, Insecticides, and Fungicides), Origin (Synthetic, and Biopesticides), Crop Type (Cereals & Oilseeds, Fruits & Vegetables), Mode of Application, Form, and by Region - Global Forecasts to 2021

Crop Protection Chemicals Market by Type (Herbicides, Insecticides, and Fungicides), Origin (Synthetic, and Biopesticides), Crop Type (Cereals & Oilseeds, Fruits & Vegetables), Mode of Application, Form, and by Region - Global Forecasts to 2021

The global crop protection chemicals market is projected to reach a value of USD 70.57 billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 5.15% from 2016 to 2021. The market is driven by factors such as rising crop loss due to pest attacks, growing need for food security for the increasing population, and rising preference for biopesticides. The changing farming practices from traditional to conventional clubbed with advanced technologies and promotion of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) by the governments of many countries across the world drives the demand for crop protection chemicals in the agriculture sector.

“Herbicides accounted for the largest market share in 2015 among the types of crop protection chemicals”
On the basis of type, crop protection chemicals are segmented into herbicides, insecticides, fungicides and others which include acaricides, rodenticides, nematicides, disinfectants, fumigants, mineral oils, and other crop protection chemicals such as sulfur, and petroleum oils sulfuric acid. Among these, herbicides accounted for the largest market share in 2015, followed by insecticides and fungicides. Herbicides are largely used for protecting cereals & oilseeds from harmful weeds that restrict the growth of crops.

“Foliar spray segment led the market with the largest share in 2015”
On the basis of mode of application, the crop protection chemicals market segmented into foliar spray, seed treatment, soil treatment and others which include Chemigation and fumigation. The market was led by foliar spray followed by soil treatment and seed treatment. Foliar spray is largely used by farmers because of its high effectiveness and ease in usage.

“South America dominated the market with the largest share”
South America formed the largest market for crop protection chemicals in 2015, whereas Asia-Pacific accounted for the second-largest market share in 2015, and is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2021.
