Pesticides Market Gaining Traction from Agriculture Industry


Pesticides are promising solutions to ensure food security and defend against biological disasters.The United Nations Population Division estimates that 9.7 billion population will exist on Earth by 2050, which is nearly 30% more to 2017. Due to the growing population in developing countries, the necessity of food production increases by 80% according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). But only 20% of new food production is expected to come from the expansion of available farming land. Thus, pesticides which are useful for sustainable agriculture are high in demand. Botanical pesticides are best alternatives to synthetic pesticides, as they are obtained from natural origin substances which are less harmful to humans.

Innovative nanotechnology-derived formulations are allowing these pesticides to boost up the agricultural productivity and also helpful in reducing health and environmental impacts. Pesticides are indispensable in precisely regulating the target pests and diseases caused by them. In addition to this, they also enhance crop production. All these factors put together, the global pesticides market is poised for a profitable future.

Different type of pesticides such as herbicide, insecticides, rodenticide, fungicide and anti-microbial are available that serve different purposes based on their diverse formulations. For example, insecticides target to kill insects whereas herbicides focus to regulate growth of unwanted plants or weeds. Increasing adoption of nanotechnology to obtain nano-pesticides with new formulations for an extensive range of applications in agri-food production are driving the growth of the pesticides market. This information is based on a recent market research report from Industry ARC, titled “Pesticides Market: By Type (Bio-Pesticides, Synthetic Pesticides); By Crop Type (Vegetables & Fruits, Oilseeds & Pulses, Cereals & Grains, Commercial Crops, Plantation Crops and Others) & By region – Forecast(2018 – 2023).”
