Crop Protection Chemicals Market Opportunities: Rapid growth in the biopesticides market and organic agriculture

Biopesticides are pesticides produced naturally, with minimum usage of chemicals. Since growing environmental considerations and the pollution potential and health hazards from many conventional pesticides are on an increase, the demand for biopesticides has been rising steadily in all parts of the world. Biopesticides are growing in popularity, due to their less or non-toxic nature as compared to synthetic pesticides. Moreover, biopesticides provide more targeted activity to desired pests, unlike conventional pesticides that often affect a broad spectrum of insects, birds, and mammalian species. Further, biopesticides can be very effective in small quantities, offering lower exposure and are quickly decomposable; they leave virtually no harmful residue after application.

The herbicides segment of the crop protection chemicals market is projected to account for the largest share, by type

Herbicides are substances designed to eliminate or inhibit the growth of unwanted plants, commonly known as weeds. These chemicals are extensively used for weed control, significantly boosting crop productivity and the quality of agricultural output. By reducing soil erosion and enhancing soil fertility, herbicides contribute to increased crop yields. Often referred to as weed killers, they are instrumental in managing unwanted vegetation. In agroecosystems, the application of herbicides can alter the composition of weed populations, while in natural landscapes, they may promote the diversity of native plant species. The threats posed to plant biodiversity by habitat loss and invasive species are far more significant than those caused by herbicide use. Non-selective herbicides are often employed in non-agricultural settings such as waste grounds, industrial sites, railways, and railway embankments. The agricultural sector and landscape turf management are the primary consumers of herbicides.

Asia Pacific is the fastest-growing market during the forecast period in the global crop protection chemicals

The key markets in the Asia Pacific region include China, India, Japan, and the Rest of Asia Pacific. The Asia-Pacific, a region where agricultural systems and technologies vary from one country to another, consists of about 40%, that is, 600 million hectares of the global crop area. Rice cultivation and the predominance of small-scale manufacturers are widely seen across all the countries of the Asia-Pacific region.

The increasing awareness about pesticides and continuous technological advancements are factors contributing to the growth of this market. In addition to this, the growing demand for crops and rising cultivation in the countries of Asia-Pacific have forced agribusiness companies to expand their supplier and manufacturing base in the region.
