Crop protection chemicals refer to the agricultural products that are mainly used to manage plant diseases and prevent crop damage. These chemicals primarily include herbicides, fungicides and insecticides. Crop protection chemicals aid in monitoring and controlling pests and diseases that may infect, consume, or damage crops. Furthermore, they also assist the farmers in managing crop productivity, improving overall yield, and enhancing food security. As a result, crop protection chemicals are utilized on various crop types, including cereals and grains, oilseeds and pulses, fruits and vegetables, etc.

According to the report titled, “UK Crop protection Chemical Overview, 2027” the market is segmented by product type, by application, and by country. The segmental analyses have been detailed into herbicide, insecticide, fungicides & bactericides, and others, in terms of products, and in terms of application, the market is classified into cereals & grains, oilseeds & pulses, fruits & vegetables, and others. Herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, and bactericides are collectively known as crop protection chemicals or are commonly known as pesticides. As the name suggests, the major role of these chemicals is to safeguard crops from unwanted species. The use of pesticides is backed by the reason for the farmers to yield a higher return, with could be otherwise affected by losing it to diseases. The Country of UK following the global trend is witnessing the decrease in arable land, which is further coupled with the increasing population. These two factors work in the favour of the market and create the need for better yields, which drives the market growth. The market is also growing with the economical benefits the usage of crop protection brings with it. Further, the need for food security calls for application of these products. The modernisation of agriculture in the country has also fuelled the growth of crop protection market. The changing environmental climate and the rise of global warming has contributed to increase cases of crop diseases and infestation, this has driven the market in recent times among the consumers. On the other hand the stringent and everchanging policies about chemical use is creating both a positive and a negative impact on the market. The negative way in which the market suffers is that these new policies makes the entry of newcomers hard but on the other hand these policies steers the existing players to invest in R&D which results in better product for the consumer. Additionally, the changing consumer behaviour towards health consciousness is increasing the demand for organic produced products like fruits and vegetables, for which the farmer uses bio-pesticides rather than traditional chemicals, this hinders the growth of the crop protection chemicals in UK. The emerging habit of Veganism is increasing the need for developing plant-based food which in turn drives the market for agriculture and crop protection.

On the basis of product type, it is predicted that the herbicides will have the highest growth rate owing to their efficiency in weed removal. This product reduced the cost of weed removal by 96% as earlier weed removal was done majorly through manual processes. The growth of the market is hindered by the increasing awareness amongst the consumer towards he usage of chemical on food items. Further, the improper usage of such products have increased illness amongst the end consumer. This is one of the major factor obstructing the growth of the market. The government to tackle this problem conducts awareness drive amongst the agricultural farmers making them aware about the right usage of the product in terms of Quantity and application. Along with this the evolution of Super weeds have posed as a problem for the market. Super weeds are those weed plants which have grown immune to crop protection chemicals over a period of constant exposure.

COVID-19 Impact

The pandemic was a worldwide phenomenon which affected almost every industry vertical in some way or the other. The Crop protection Chemical market was no exception to this. The market was affected moderately as the agricultural practices never really came to a halt. But the negative effect was felt with respect to the supply chain and manufacturing process which was created due to lockdowns and travels restrictions.
