Drivers and Restraints:

Rising Emphasis on Improved Agricultural Crop Output to Bolster Growth

Biological control, the adoption of resistant varieties, and adjustment of cultural practices are all part of an integrated pest management strategy that focuses on long-term pest prevention. The use of a variety of pest control methods as well as detailed knowledge of the pest life cycle and interactions leads in proper pest management with the least amount of risk to human and animal health. As a result, farmers are gravitating toward such methods since they lessen the environmental dangers connected with insect control. This factor will enable the expansion of the market. Integrated pest control strategies, for example, have enhanced agricultural crop output by 40.14% and 26.63% in rice and cotton harvests, respectively, according to the Directorate of Plant Protection Quarantine & Storage (India).

According to the study’s findings, global insect pest losses have decreased from 13.6% in the post-green revolution era to 10.8% at the turn of the century. Pest infestations have decreased as a result of significant changes in agricultural production systems, the use of crop protection agents, and better awareness of field and post-harvest losses as well as essential management measures.

However, the growing pests’ resistance to crop pesticides may hinder market growth.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific to Offer Lucrative Growth Opportunities for Market Players

With a market size of USD 16.54 billion in 2020, Asia Pacific is poised to dominate the crop protection chemicals market share during the forecast period. The primary growth driver of the regional market is a high dependency of the developing countries of the region on agriculture as the sector forms the backbone of these economies. Population growth in these countries and widespread poverty, is reinforcing the need for enhanced agricultural productivity to ensure food security to populations. As a result, the adoption of crop protection chemicals and products is expected to escalate in Asia Pacific in the forthcoming years. In Europe and North America, farmers are swiftly switching to sustainable agricultural practices and increasingly prefer eco-friendly and naturally derived pesticides and insecticides.
