Crop protection products are essential in safeguarding crops against various insects, diseases and pests. Pesticides are very important as they help in improving the yield of agricultural produce. On an average basis, application of pesticides saves around 68% of the yield for the common agriculture crops including cotton, maize, rice and soybean. The crop protection chemicals market is segmented along three broader products: herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides.

Supply - Demand Scenario:

The crop protection market is projected to grow from $53.5 billion in 2013 to $73.44 million by 2020, at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2014 to 2019. The global crop protection chemicals market was led by the Asia-Pacific region, followed by the North American market, in terms of value, in 2013.

Growth by End Use Industry:

Herbicides accounted for the largest share in the total crop protection chemicals market with 41% of the total market share in 2014. The global crop protection chemicals market consists of four crop type categories, namely cereals & grains, oilseeds & pulses, fruits & vegetables, and other crops. Other crops include sugar cane, plantation crops, and turfs & ornamentals. Cereals & grains is the major market for crop protection chemicals which is dominated by North America. Fruits & vegetables is the second-largest market which is again dominated by the North American region. The difference between Asia-Pacific and North American markets is very minute. China’s market is estimated to have the greatest potential in the Asia-Pacific region and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.8% from 2014 to 2019. Japan is another promising market in the Asia-Pacific region, which had a dominant herbicides market in 2013.

Drivers vs. Constraints:

Rising demand for agricultural crops resulting from global population growth; increasing standard of living and increasing demand for biofuels are the major triggers that are keeping the global crop protection market afloat. Crop protection chemicals market is mainly driven by the limited availability of arable land, high profitability margin, acceptance of modern farming and protected agriculture, and changes in farming practices and technology. To capitalize on the growth trend in the global crop protection market, several leading companies are investing in the development and manufacturing of crop protection chemicals. The growing demand for crop protection chemicals is compelling global players to widen their crop protection offerings.

Industry Structure and Updates:

The global market for crop protection chemicals, owing to its significant impact not only on human health, but also on the environment, is a highly regulated market. The players include Syngenta (Switzerland), BASF (Germany), Dow AgroSciences (U.S.), and DuPont (U.S.). Agreements, partnerships, and collaborations are the most common strategies followed by these companies, and are predicted to give a new dimension to this market from 2014 to 2020.
