Herbicides Market Insights

Herbicides Market size was valued at USD 30.32 billion in 2019 and is poised to grow from USD 31.59 billion in 2023 to USD 45.75 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 4.2% in the forecast period (2024-2031).

Herbicides are a type of pesticide that is used to suppress weeds during cultivation. Herbicides, often known as weedkillers, are classified into two types: selective and non-selective herbicides. Non-selective herbicides can be used to clear industrial and construction sites, railways, and railway ridges since they destroy all plant material with which they come into contact. Selective herbicides control specific weed species while leaving the desired crop intact. Herbicides are used to increase agricultural output by eradicating undesired plants and weeds in the plantation. As a result, the increased desire for high agricultural productivity to meet global food demands supports the expansion of the herbicides industry. Furthermore, the increase in population and disposable money in a growing region such as Asia-Pacific boosts the need for herbicides. However, the risks connected with synthetic herbicides result in tight herbicide regulations, which significantly impedes the growth of the global herbicides market.

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

Herbicides Market Regional Insights

In 2021, Asia-Pacific is expected to have the biggest share of the market. North America is the world's second-largest herbicide consumer. Environmental laws in the developed economies of North America and Europe, on the other hand, are likely to limit market growth in these regions. The Asia Pacific region dominated the global herbicides market in terms of both production and consumption, and this trend is projected to continue in the near future. The Asia Pacific region is home to two of the world's most populous countries, India and China. In terms of GDP growth rate and rising disposable income, these regions are also among the key growing economies. Herbicide demand in Asia Pacific is predicted to be driven by the region's large population and rapid economic growth.

South America region also had one of the greatest market share is expected to grow even more in the next five years. Furthermore, because South America has less rigorous laws than other countries, significant players have expanded in this region. The South America and Middle East & Africa region is predicted to be one of the fastest-growing herbicide markets. owing to rising demand for various crops in the region, including corn, beans, and cashews, among others.

Herbicides Key Market Trends

  • The expansion of the Herbicides market was aided by the insufficient arable land and rising food demand. Insufficient arable land and rising food demand. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) predicts that the global population will increase by more than a third, or 2.3 billion, between 2009 and 2050. At the same time, per capita income is expected to rise globally. With rising per capita income and a growing population, global food demand is expected to rise. According to the FAO, food demand in the United States is anticipated to rise by 50% to 90% by 2050. Many issues, including climate change, pest outbreaks, a lack of investment, and restricted agricultural area, make it difficult to produce enough food to maintain food security. FAOSTATS reports that the global arable land area has fallen from 1,507,196.3 thousand hectares in 2017 to 1,502,820.5 thousand hectares in 2019. This suggests that food demand is increasing while agricultural land is shrinking significantly. Thus, crop protection agents such as herbicides are critical for increasing production and meeting global demand.
