Insecticides Market by Type (Pyrethroids, Organophosphorus, Carbamates, Organochlorine, Botanicals), Crop Type, Mode of Application, Formulation (WP, EC, SC, EW, ME, GR), and Region - Global Forecast to 2022
“Global insecticides market projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.27%”
The global insecticides market is projected to reach a value of USD 20.82 billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 5.27% from 2016 to 2022. The market is driven by factors such as increasing global exports and rise in instances of crop losses due to pest infestation. Moreover, population growth exceeds global food production, owing to which the use of best grades of insecticides for agriculture will benefit growers and the economically backward population in developing countries. However, factors such as different regulatory structures and uncertainty of the world economy affect the growth of the insecticides market.
“Organochlorine segment is projected to grow be the fastest growing segment in the insecticides market in 2015”
On the basis of type, the organochlorine segment is projected to grow at the fastest growth rate from 2016 to 2022. With the increasing demand for organochlorine insecticides, their consumption is increasing as they remain effective against targeted pests for prolonged periods.
“Spray segment of insecticides led the market with the largest share in 2015”
On the basis of form, sprays were most widely used form of the insecticides. Sprays help insecticides penetrate plant cuticle, thereby having a major effect on the destruction of pests. The absence of effective spray options severely limit crop productivity.
