The Africa organophosphate pesticide market has been estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period from 2016 to 2021. Organophosphate is the general name of esters of phosphoric acid. Organophosphate group of chemicals have many domestic and industrial uses, though they are most commonly used as insecticides.

Organophosphates were initially developed as highly toxic biological warfare agents in 1940s. These products have become one of the most widely used pesticide around the globe. The organophosphate substances work by blocking the enzyme acetylcholinesterase causing nervous and respiratory damages that result in the insects/pests death.

Organophosphate pesticides market is driven by the need to increase crop yield and efficiency. The region’s population is growing, but the farmlands have been decreasing pushing farmers to increase their yields. New farming practices are adopted by farmers all over the region to increase crop yields through encouraging government support. These factors coupled with high performance and availability of organophosphates against insects and pests have led a continuous market growth for the industry. Product development, and growing demand from developing regions are identified as the opportunity segments for the industry’s future growth. However, the toxicity of chemicals towards environment leads to regulatory issues in many regions. High research and development costs and a girth of alternative options may act as obstacles for market growth.

The market is classified based on the active ingredients, crop types and geography. Depending on active ingredients, the market is classified into Parathion, Malathion, Chloropyriphos, Diazinon, Dimethoate, Glyphosate, Methamidophos and Other organophosphates. For various crops, organophosphate pesticides are used as they are classified into herbicide, insecticides, fungicides and other pesticides. The market is also segmented by their usage in crops like cereals and grains, oilseeds, fruits and vegetables etc. Non-crop utilization of organophospahtes in turfs, ornamentals and others is also studied.

The market is also segmented geographically into South Africa, Egypt and others. South Africa generates the largest demand in the region followed by Egypt. The rising disposable income levels, rising population and food security are the major reasons for growing usage of pesticides in the region.

The major companies in Africa organophosphates pesticides market are DuPont, Cheminova AS, Syngenta, Bayer Cropscience AG, Yara International etc. All major companies are investing profoundly in new product development to keep up with competition and gain market share. Acquisitions, joint ventures and investments are seen as the short term strategies for market growth.
