Crop Protection Chemicals Market Insights

Crop Protection Chemicals Market size was valued at USD 42.6 billion in 2021 and is poised to grow from USD 43.24 billion in 2022 to USD 66.7 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 5.6% in the forecast period (2023-2030).

The global agricultural industry has been witnessing incredible advancements both in terms of farming methods as well as regulatory intervention to promote safer and sustainable practices in food production. Such involvement has prompted numerous agrochemical companies to invest in R&D to develop greener crop protection chemicals, and also move towards a sustainable farming ecosystem.

However, from a developmental perspective, the industry has been a witness to companies engaging in commercializing bio-based chemicals from plant, mineral, bacteria, and animal sources. One such arena in which the industry has made significant advancements is biopesticides. Today, there are over 1,500 registered biopesticides with over 300 active ingredients considered to have pesticide properties.

US Crop Protection Chemicals Market is poised to grow at a sustainable CAGR for the next forecast year.

Crop Protection Chemicals Market Segmental Analysis

Global crop protection chemicals market is segmented on the basis of product, application, source, and region. By product, the market is segmented into herbicides, fungicides, insecticides. By application the market is segmented into fruits & vegetables, cereals, maize, cotton, rice. By Source, the market is segmented into Synthetic Chemicals and Biologicals. By region, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa, and Latin America.

Crop Protection Chemicals Market Analysis by Application

The cereals and grains segment dominated the global crop protection chemicals and is anticipated to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. This growth is attributable to an increase in cereal and grain consumption, in particular in North America and the Asia-Pacific. Examples of these foods include corn, rice, oats, wheat, sorghum, and barley.

Due to farmers' increased emphasis on oilseed production, the oilseeds and pulses category is also likely to develop throughout the projected period. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) reported that the revised Brazilian soybean crop for 2021 was responsible for a 1 million tonnes increase in worldwide oilseed production in 2020–2021.

Crop Protection Chemicals Market Analysis by Source

Due to the extensive use of these chemicals in developing nations in Asia, South America, Africa, and the Middle East, the synthetic chemicals segment commands a sizeable market share. The lower cost and pest-specific effectiveness of synthetic chemicals are primarily to blame for the rise in their use. On the other hand, as local, national, and regional governments promote environmentally friendly crop protection products, the demand for protection products with biological sources is rising.

Crop Protection Chemicals Market Dynamics

Crop Protection Chemicals Market Drivers

Growing Utilization of Crop Protection Products for High Yield is expected to drive the market growth

  • In order to increase crop yield by shielding plants from damaging pests and weeds, crop protection chemicals are widely used in modern agriculture. In order to provide food security for the expanding populace, agricultural productivity has increased. The Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) reports that Brazil, China, and the United States are the three countries that buy the most of these protective goods. One of the key reasons for increasing agricultural output in these nations is high pesticide usage.

Crop Protection Chemicals Market Restraints

Increase in pests' resistance to crop pesticides may hinder market growth

  • One key factor limiting market expansion is the increased insect resistance to several crop protection agents. Pest resistance has increased as a result of the notable fall in the efficacy of several active substances. The alteration in insect metabolic patterns, rising reproduction rates, and excessive pest proliferation are all factors that contribute to this resistance.
