Global Grain & Cereal Crop Protection Chemicals Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)

Global Grain & Cereal Crop Protection Chemicals Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)

The global crop protection chemicals market for grain & cereal was valued at USD 20.4 billion in 2016 and expected to register a CAGR of 2.8% during the forecast period 2018 - 2023. The market for bio-based crop protection solutions for grain & cereal is expected to grow at a faster rate as compared to the conventional and synthetic crop protection chemical products.

Increasing Push toward Food Safety and Quality

According to FAO in 2010, 70% of cultivated land grows cereals crops and the demand of crop protection chemicals massively depends on cereals production. Increasing global population is causing more pressure to enhance the cereal production worldwide, hence leading to more use of pesticides in this segment. The demand for food safety and quality has been higher than ever in the last few years and the governments all around the world are coming up with more stringent rules and regulations to ensure that the consumers are getting healthy and safe food. The farmers are also pushing towards organic farming, and an increased usage of bio-based crop protection solutions for the protection of crops has increasingly been observed.

Companies Looking to Expand Business to Increase Market Share

The merger of Dow and DuPont in 2017 was the highlight of the crop protection chemicals market with the combined power of both the companies consolidating a huge share in the market. More recently, FMC acquired the crop protection segment of DuPont which majorly focuses on the protection of cereal crops like wheat. This also brings an opportunity for FMC to expand its business to new markets and increase its customer base. Similarly, BASF SE plans to launch five products for rice crop protection in India, with three of them to be launched this year, while two others are planned to be introduced in the next couple of years. Such strategies are likely to diversify their biological research divisions in the expanding market place and enhance growth in the market.

Major Players: Adama Agricultural Solutions, BASF SE, Bayer Cropscience AG, Bioworks Inc, DowDupont, FMC Corporation, Marrone Bio Innovations Inc, Monsanto Company, and Syngenta International AG, among others.
