The South America organophosphate pesticide market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.1% 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.

Factors like growing food demand and need for land productivity coupled with high performance and availability of organophosphates against insects and pests have led a continuous market growth for the industry. Product development, sustainable farming options 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 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. The usage of pesticides is highest in cereals and grains, mainly in oil crops like soyabean. Market study indicated that Cereals and grains consumed the highest market in the use of insecticide products. This can be attributed to the food safety and wide variety of uses of cereals and grains.

The market is also segmented geographically into Brazil, Argentina and others. Brazil has the largest consumer base in the region. Argentina follows the list. The rising disposable income levels, rising population and food security have made Brazil, the country with maximum potential for growth. The low affordability and explicit cost cutting measures of farmers in developing and under developed countries hinder the real potential of the market.

As a growing agricultural market, South America organophosphate pesticides segment attracts great deal of investments from agricultural inputs companies. The major companies in South America 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.
