Crop protection chemicals are also known as plant protection chemicals or pesticides. Crop protection chemicals include various chemicals, which can be applied externally to safeguard the crops by controlling the population of harmful pests or those that can potentially damage or adversely affect the growth of crops. Crop protection chemicals can be broadly classified into three categories such as insecticides, herbicides and fungicides. Pesticides can be synthetic or bio-based. However, large chunk of crop protection chemicals market is occupied by synthetic pesticides. Chlorine, nitrogen, phosphorus, bromine, phenol, etc. are some of the important raw materials used in the manufacture of crop protection chemicals. Agriculture is major application market for pesticides. However, significant volume of pesticides is also used in horticulture, floriculture and house-hold applications (such as pest control).

The major driving factor for the global crop protection chemicals market is rapidly growing population of the world. Increase in population has been resulted into higher demand for food. Moreover, arable land is shrinking due to increasing urbanization and industrialization. Crop protection chemicals help to safeguard crops and ensures higher yield. Moreover, global crop protection market is primarily driven by strong demand from Asia Pacific and Latin America. However, increasing environmental concerns across the world due to manufacturing and use of crop protection chemicals is expected to affect the growth of this market. Moreover, increasing acceptance of genetically modified seed (Bacillus thuringiensis crops) is expected to adversely affect the growth of global crop protection chemicals market in the years to come.

Crop Protection Chemicals Market

Based on types, crop protection chemicals market is segments into insecticides, herbicides and fungicides. Insecticides are sub-segmented as pyrethrins and pyrethroids, malathion, carbaryl, chlorpyrifos, and others. Herbicides are sub-segmented as atrazine, acetochlor, 2, 4 – D, glyphosate, and others. Fungicides are further segmented as chlorothalonil, metalaxyl, strobilurin, mancozeb, and others. Herbicide was the leading product segment of global crop protection chemicals market in 2014. Herbicides accounted for over 35% share of the total volume consumed in 2014. Insecticide was the second largest segment of crop protection chemicals market.

Cereals & grains, oilseeds & pulses, fruits, vegetables & nuts and others are the key application market of crop protection chemicals. Cereals and grains was the largest application market for crop protection chemicals in 2014. Cereals and grains accounted for around 30% share of the total crop protection chemicals volume consumed in 2014. Rice, wheat, sorghum, barley, oats, etc. are key crops dominating this segment. Fruits, vegetables and nuts are also one of the important application segments in the global crop protection chemicals market.
Asia Pacific was the leading regional market for crop protection chemicals, with around 25% share in total volume consumption in 2014. Asia Pacific is closely followed by North America. Strong growth of agricultural sector in China, India and other emerging economies for the region are driving demand for crop protection chemicals. Europe and Latin America also accounts for the significant share in global crop protection chemicals market. Middle East & Africa accounted for smallest share in global crop protection chemicals market in 2014. Middle East & Africa is highly untapped market for crop protection chemicals. However, Middle East & Africa is expected to show promising growth in the years to come.

Some of the major industry participants in global crop protection chemicals market include Syngenta, BASF, DuPont, Arystya Lifescience, Sumotomo Chemicals, Nufarm, Makhteshim Agam, and DOW Agroscience.
