The Poland Crop Protection Chemicals Market is projected to register a CAGR of 2.8% during the forecast period.

Key Highlights

  • The upsurge in the adoption of biopesticides and favorable government policies supporting the development of new innovative crop protection chemicals are some factors driving the market growth for Poland's crop protection chemicals.
  • The growing demand for food safety and quality, increasing consumer demand for organic products, and favorable government policies promoting biocontrol products are some factors driving biopesticides' market growth. Poland is one of the pioneers of biopesticide regulations in Europe and hence implemented several measures to support the commercialization of biopesticide products in the country.
  • The Polish market for crop protection chemicals continues to grow over the past few years and is majorly dominated by foreign players with their wide range of products. Herbicides and pesticides are the majorly used crop protection chemicals because of the high percentage of grains in the cultivated area and the considerable importance given to gardening in the region. According to the FAO, the agricultural usage of pesticides accounted for 24,168 metric ton during the year 2020.
  • The Polish crop protection chemicals market is highly import-dependent with about 50% of the consumption being met through imports. The lack of sufficient financial resources among local plant protection chemical producers to conduct research on new products, their registration and marketing are some of the factors restraining market growth.

Poland Crop Protection Chemicals Market Trends

Increase in Grains and Cereals demand is driving the Market

Poland is one of the largest producers of grain and cereals and the largest producer of triticale in the world. In 2020, it was ranked 3rd after France and Germany in terms of harvested crops. Grain and cereal products are of strategic importance in the whole world economy, also in Poland. They are essential ingredients of food; they are used in distilling, brewing, milling, and industrial, energy, and pharmaceutical sectors.

Cereals such as wheat, corn, barley, triticale, and oats are the major crops grown in the country. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) statistics, the area under cultivation for mixed grains has increased from 590.4 thousand hectares in 2020 to 653.8 thousand hectares in 2021. This, in turn, explains their predominance in the total volume of plant protection chemicals in the country. The most important active substance used on this crop includes herbicides isoproturon and 2,4-D. With extensive cultivation of grains and cereals carried out across various parts of the country, the pesticide market application on grains and cereals is projected to grow during the forecast period.

Herbicides Dominate the Market

Herbicides are chemical agents that are used to kill or inhibit the growth of unwanted plants, such as residential or agricultural weeds and other invasive species. The ease of application is a big advantage of chemical herbicides over mechanical weed control methods. This also helps save labor costs.

The most widely used synthetic herbicides in Poland include glyphosate, 2 and 4-D, atrazine, glufosinate-ammonium, paraquat, pendimethalin, dicamba, fluroxypyr, and metolachlor. However, the growth of the market is mostly driven by glyphosate. Further, there is a huge growing demand for bio-based herbicides. Bio-based herbicides are made from renewable resources and are predicted to be the fastest-growing herbicide product class shortly. The chemicals utilized in herbicide manufacture include amide, sodium chlorate, and sulfuric acid, to name a few.

Although they constitute only a small part of the industry, it is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period. Major plant protection manufacturing companies such as Ciech Group are strengthening their position in the market by launching products that cater to the needs of Polish farmers. For instance, in the year 2021, the CIECH Group launched Halvetic and made a very successful debut in Poland, strengthening the position of CIECH Sarzyna in the glyphosate segment, in which the company has a share of about 50% by intensive abroad expansion across the globe.
