Market Dynamics

Drivers: Usage of Insecticides for Better Crop Protection and Production

Syngenta, a Chinese-owned firm, was one of the major participants in the agricultural market in terms of sales. Syngenta's extensive product portfolio includes insecticides for a variety of plant groups, comprising grains, cereals, oilseeds, vegetables, turfs, ornamental plants, and so on. Nutrien, a Canadian fertilizer company (the product of a merger between PotashCorp and Agrium) was one of the world's biggest pesticide firms as of 2021, according to market value. BASF, Dupont, FMC Corporation, Marrone Bio Innovation, ADM,  Sumitomo Chemicals, and a few other industry heavyweights are also available.

Corn, rice, and wheat are the most common insecticide-treated crops in the cereals and grains sector. Since grains are grown in almost every nation, the worldwide demand for pesticides is significant, and this growth is projected to continue over the next five years. Total grain output has been expanding on a global basis, and with the increase in cereal production and distribution, it's become increasingly important for farmers to focus on quality and yield by using appropriate pesticides.

Drivers: Rise in Research to Develop Newer Variants of Products

Pests are getting increasingly abundant in diverse crops around the world, and insecticide-resistant pests are becoming more prevalent. Insecticides can be used to control a wide range of pests. However, as pests gain resistance, they lose their potency over time, and a large loss in susceptibility to a pesticide diminishes its performance on the field.

Insecticide resistance usually develops as a result of increased reliance on insecticide-based pest control of insects pests. This tolerance grows rapidly as the heat increases, allowing insects or lice to proliferate more quickly. Pink bollworm, a key cotton pest, has been observed to acquire resistance to the Bt cotton crop over time.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the United States is striving to slow and prevent pesticide resistance. These pests have wreaked havoc on many commercially vital crops, forcing farmers to rely more heavily on the use of insecticides.

Constant investigation to develop newer product varieties, boost product releases, and increase operational company revenues, all of which benefit the worldwide insecticides industry.

Restraints: Toxicity Related to Insecticides

Because insecticides are deadly, they are hazardous to small pets and children, requiring proper handling and proper safety practices, which is restricting insecticides' acceptability for residential use.

Furthermore, in 2018, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) banned the use of endosulfan in the US. Endosulfan was employed in the production of a variety of vegetables, fruits, and many other plants, including tomato, potato, apple, and cotton. However, among farmworkers, the insecticide has been associated with congenital abnormalities, mental retardation, and mortality. These prohibitions and regulations will, to some degree, stifle market expansion over the projection period.

What are the Future Opportunities of the Global Insecticides Market?

Growing Potential for Emulsifiable Concentrates

In most cases, an emulsifiable concentrate formulation will contain a fluid adjuvant that is oil-soluble, in addition to one or more solvents derived from petroleum and a mixing ingredient. Because of their versatility in both farming and non-agricultural uses, emulsifiable concentrates are a composition of pesticide that is widely utilized all over the world. They are proficient with a wide variety of sprayers, like portable and hydraulic sprayers, among others. Emulsifiable concentrates are the most common type of pesticide used nowadays since they are more convenient to work with when spraying over vast regions.

Segmental Analysis of Global Insecticides Market

The Insecticides market share is classified into the origin, application, and insect pest type.

Based on origin, the global insecticides market is segmented into synthetic insecticides and bioinsecticides. 

The synthetic insecticide segment is dominant over other product types of insecticides and is expected to generate USD 16,368 million by 2030. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4% during the forecast period. 

Increasing population, rising food consumption, shrinking farmland, and crop loss due to insects and pathogens are all major drivers driving the global market for agricultural chemicals, particularly insecticides.

Technological advancement is being employed by certain companies to broaden their product portfolios. In June 2018, BASF launched the pesticide Sefina in India and Australia to protect vegetable crops and cotton from sucking pests. In April 2017, it also developed a new insecticide for rice fields in Indonesia called Xemco 300 SC. Minecto Pro, a foliar-applied pesticide, was launched in November 2018 by Syngenta to manage pests in potatoes, pears, apples, and other vegetable crops.
