The report “Agricultural Adjuvants Market by Function (Activator and Utility), Application (Herbicides, Insecticides, and Fungicides), Formulation (Suspension Concentrates and Emulsifiable Concentrates), Adoption Stage, Crop Type, and Region – Global Forecast 2026″, is estimated to be valued at USD 3.1 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach a value of USD 4.4 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period. Factors such as the rising demand for improved crop varieties is driving the growth of the agricultural adjuvants market.
COVID-19 Impact on the Global Agricultural Adjuvants Market
The FAO has acknowledged that the spread of COVID- 19 pandemic is subsiding in a few countries and regions of the world. Still, it is also resurging or spreading quickly in some other countries such as Korea, Brazil, and India. This outbreak has affected significant elements of both food supply and demand. Border closures, quarantines, market supply chains, and trade disruptions have restricted people’s access to sufficient and nutritious sources of food, especially in countries hit hard by the virus. However, as the governments on a global level shut down borders and economies for restricting the spread of the coronavirus, the businesses observed major impacts on their international trades. Many markets are focusing on fulfilling their requirements for fertilizers, pesticides, and adjuvants by domestic companies. This is, however, causing an imbalance between the demand and supply quantities. However, some regions are completely dependent on imports and are facing tough situations. Adjuvants are majorly dependent on raw materials such as vegetable oils and petroleum for their production. Gradually the rise in the prices of these commodities has resulted in higher adjuvant prices. All these factors hampered the potential growth of the market at the beginning of 2020.

Opportunity: Manufacturing adjuvant products for cost-effectiveness
The cost of adjuvants fluctuates and depends mainly on the prices of petroleum and vegetable oil that are used for agricultural adjuvant production. As the application costs of different single-purpose adjuvants during pesticide application prove to be expensive for growers, applicators are looking for adjuvants that are simple to use and multifunctional. The increased downstream cost, high foam formation during production, and low productivity have resulted in many R&D activities. Many new developments have been the area of focus for researchers; these include reducing the raw material costs, increasing the production yield, and developing new techniques to lower the foam formation.
Challenge: Impact on the production cost of farmers
The adoption of adjuvants further adds to the costs of seed and pesticides used for crop cultivation. Even though the adoption of adjuvants reduces the application cycles of pesticides, the cost of adjuvants could considerably affect the farm production cost to an extent. The cost again would depend on the stage at which the adjuvants are utilized, either as in-formulation or tank-mix adjuvants. The farmers’ profit margins get reduced due to the additional cost of adjuvants. However, with the increasing need to undertake sustainable measures to control pesticide drift and avoid creating environmental risks, farmers would adopt these adjuvants, which would, in turn, turn out to be cost burden, especially in developing countries.
By application, the herbicide segment is projected to dominate the market during the forecast period.
The herbicide segment is projected to hold the largest market share in the agricultural adjuvants market during the forecast period as according to industry experts from prominent seed manufacturers, disease resistance and herbicide tolerance are traits that have been on demand, owing to the increasing instances of early germination pest attacks and regulations against cop protection chemicals. Cereals & grains accounted for the largest consumption of herbicides in North America and Asia Pacific, owing to the high cultivation of corn and wheat in countries such as the US and China.
Asia Pacific is projected to grow at the highest CAGR% during the forecast period
The market for agricultural adjuvants in the Asia Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2020 to 2026, owing to the increasing investments by key players in countries such as China, India, and Thailand, and also the rising adoption of adjuvant technology by the crop growers for insecticide applications. Due to these factors, the market in the Asia Pacific region is projected to record the highest growth from 2020 to 2026.
