Crop Protection Chemicals Market

Integrated Pest Management to Stimulate Crop Protection Chemical Sales Over Long Term, Opines Fact.MR

Published : 07 Oct 2021 Industry: Chemical & Materials

As per industry analysis on crop protection chemicals by Fact.MR, the market is anticipated to be valued at US$ 72.9 Bn in 2021, increasing at a steady CAGR of 5.3% over the forecast period 2021-2031.

Fact.MR, market research and competitive intelligence provider, predicts that crop protection chemical manufacturers are set to witness higher sales on the back of growing demand for improved agricultural output, which, in turn, mandates the requirement of these chemicals.

Crop protection chemicals are essential for long-term farming, and this is being reshaped by agronomy, technology, and societal developments. Rapid technological adoption has gained traction in a variety of applications, including spraying, harvesting, and others. Due to better agronomic advice on different fungi and weeds by digital platforms, the market is anticipated to experience an inevitable boost.

Within the agriculture business, usage of Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly expanding. In the future, Internet of Things is projected to transform agricultural production and farming techniques. Integrated pest management (IPM) has also evolved into a valuable and comprehensive component of long-term farming. Depending on the inputs and analytics, farm owners can choose from a wide selection of sensors to monitor pest growth and conduct appropriate countermeasures to control them.

In addition to rising adoption of IPM across varying geographies, there has been growing prevalence of sustainable farming practices being implemented by farm owners. This has led to the adoption of bio-based crop protection chemicals over synthetic ones. This, in turn, is anticipated to remain the defining trend during the first half of the forecast period, driving the market for crop protection chemicals forward.
