The Pakistan agrochemicals market is expected to witness at a CAGR 7.9% and is expected to reach USD 320.0 million by 2023. In 2014, Pakistan imported pesticides worth USD 106.5 million and these imports are expected to increase to USD 127.6 million by 2023. The imports contributed to satisfying more than 25% of the domestic demand in 2016. When compared to the imports, the indigenous production of pesticides is on a rise in Pakistan and in 2023, imports are expected to be sufficient to meet the demand. Biopesticides have gained importance as an alternative to the chemical control. Insecticides constitute the largest market share (58%) and are expected to retain its position until 2023.

Crop-Based Application Dominates the Market
In Pakistan, crop-based crop protection chemicals are the largest portion of the market, and accounts for 99% of the overall market share, in the year 2017. In terms of consumption of crop-based crop protection chemicals, in Pakistan, cotton is the crop of major importance, followed by rice, maize, and wheat. Additionally, cotton has the maximum number of crop protection chemicals registered in Pakistan. In Sindh and Punjab, maximum use of crop-based crop protection chemicals is on cotton and rice followed by fruits and vegetables. In Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan, the major use of pesticides is on fruits and vegetables followed by maize in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and rice and cotton in Balochistan. Grains and cereals have the largest market share of 49% in the crop-based crop protection chemicals market. Various factors, including the crop demand, cultivation area, quality seed availability, and crop, seed, and crop protection chemical prices are affecting the crop- based crop protection chemicals market.

Need For Improving Agricultural Productivity Drives the Market
The main focus of the agricultural sector is to increase the productivity and food security in the country. However, Pakistan’s grain productivity is quite less, as compared to neighboring regional economies. The major reasons behind the low agricultural productivity in Pakistan are pest infestation, limited cultivation area, inadequate infrastructure, a limited supply of agricultural inputs, and lack of high-yielding varieties, among others. By comparing the yields, Pakistan per hectare yields is lesser than China, India, and Bangladesh. Per hectare agricultural yield in Pakistan is also among the lowest in the world agricultural yields. Insect pests are the major cause of crop damage, yield, and quality reduction in Pakistan. The pest problem in the country has increased with the introduction of high-yielding and fertilizer-responsive varieties, which prove susceptible to various pests. The aforementioned factors are attributing to the positive growth of the market.

Black Marketing and Sale of Spurious Crop Protection Chemicals
In 2016, the production of cotton, pulses, and vegetables was hit due to the ineffectiveness of the majority of the crop protection chemicals against pests and diseases. For instance, during the cotton-growing season in Kharif, pink bollworms could not be controlled by several branded crop protection chemicals available in the open market. The Pest Warning and Quality Control of Pesticides (PWQCP) Directorate General seized a large quantity of spurious crop protection chemicals in 2016. The number of legal actions, arrests, and value of seized chemicals in 2016 was higher, as compared to 2015. The Pest Warning and Quality Control of Pesticides (PWQCP) Directorate General had also analyzed 7,900 samples and had declared 194 samples unfit, with 2.46% unfit ratio in 2015. In 2016, 7,934 samples were analyzed and 284 samples were declared unfit, with an unfit ratio of 3.58%. An example is the import of the fake brand, Danital by Arysta Agro Pakistan Private Ltd. The price of a one-liter pack of the brand product is USD 7.65 and per acre dose for spotted bollworm is 250 ml. On the contrary, the fake brand of Danital is 10EC and is sold at USD 9.9, with a recommended dose of only 300-350 ml per acre. However, the relevant dose for a 10EC should have been 750 ml per acre and USD 3.3 per liter. The usage of fake crop protection chemicals has drastically affected the production of crops in Pakistan.
