“Glufosinate market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9.25% in terms of value.”

The glufosinate market is estimated to be valued at USD 1.37 billion in 2016, and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9.25% from 2016 to 2022. The demand for glufosinate is projected to grow as it acts as a key substitute for glyphosate and paraquat. With the increase in glyphosate-resistant weeds, the demand for alternative herbicides has increased in the crop protection chemicals area. This has increased the demand for glufosinate herbicides in crop cultivation, especially for glufosinate-tolerant crops, which include soybean, canola, maize, and cotton. Moreover, the U.S. FDA considers glufosinate as safer compared to other herbicides available in the U.S. market such as paraquat. Various regulations on crop protection chemicals, especially the proposed ban in the European region for glufosinate, acts as a major restraint for this market. Furthermore, higher prices of end products compared to other herbicides also acts as a restraint for the glufosinate market.

“Grains & cereals segment is projected to be the fastest-growing segment in the glufosinate market.”

The introduction of genetically modified glufosinate-tolerant crops will increase the use of glufosinate on various agricultural applications such as grains & cereals, oilseeds & pulses, and fruits & vegetables. In the agricultural applications segment, the grains & cereals subsegment is estimated to account for the largest share. The use of glufosinate is growing and it is replacing glyphosate and paraquat because of growing weed resistance to glyphosate and paraquat.

“South America is projected to be the fastest-growing region in the glufosinate market.”

The South American region is projected to be the fastest-growing market for glufosinate, in terms of both value and volume, during the forecast period. Herbicide-resistant genetically modified crops are widely planted and cultivated in South America. Farmers are adopting various approaches for weed control. Glufosinate is used as a substitute for glyphosate-resistant cropping along with other herbicides such as paraquat and 2, 4-D in South America. Availability of arable land and expansion of farmlands in Brazil and Argentina are driving the growth of this market.

The glufosinate market is estimated to be valued at USD 1.37 Billion in 2016, and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9.25% from 2016 to 2022. Glufosinate finds wide applications in agricultural and non-agricultural sectors. Factors such as its broad weed spectrum and high efficacy has fueled the growth of this market.

On the basis of crop type, the global market is segmented into genetically modified crops and conventional crops. The genetically modified crops dominated the market owing to its major use in the production of various products and wider availability. Genetic modified techniques are widely used to make crops herbicide-resistant.

The global glufosinate market, on the basis of application, is segmented into agricultural and non-agricultural applications. The demand for glufosinate is expected to increase in the next few years due to the growing yield of agricultural crops such as corn, soybean, beans, canola, sugar beets, sugar cane, and sweet potato that are genetically modified to tolerate glufosinate. The grains & cereals segment accounted for the largest market share in 2015.

The forms of glufosinate considered for the study are liquid and dry. Liquid formulation of glufosinate is widely used as it has low temperature stability as compared to dry formulations, which has a long process of usage.

The North American region dominated the market and accounted for the largest share, in terms of both value and volume, in the global glufosinate market, in 2015. The North American market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9.60% from 2016 to 2022. Factors such as increasing acreage under glufosinate-tolerance crops, and resistance development to glyphosate herbicide products in countries of the North American region are driving the growth of the glufosinate market.

In Europe, glufosinate ammonium is considered as a highly toxic product, thus the European Union has considered banning it from October 2017. The present EU registration for glufosinate ammonium is valid until 31 July 2018. The European Commission, under Regulation 1107/2009 suggested that glufosinate ammonium should be substituted in January 2015. Hence, products that contain glufosinate ammonium are to mandatorily go through comparative assessment by Member States.

The leading players that dominated the glufosinate market include: Bayer AG (Germany), The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company (U.S.), Syngenta AG (Switzerland), and UPL (India). Other players include Nufarm Ltd (Australia), Jiangsu Huangma Agrochemicals Co, Ltd. (China), Jiangsu Sevencontinent Green Chemical Co., Ltd. (China), Hebei Veyong Bio-Chemical Co., Ltd. (China), and Zhejiang Yongnong Chem. Ind. Co. Ltd. (China). Key players have adopted strategic developments such as new product launches, acquisitions, joint ventures, expansions, collaborations & partnerships, and agreements & investments in order to capture this emerging market.
