Crop protection chemicals refer to the agricultural products that are mainly used to manage plant diseases and prevent crop damage. These chemicals primarily include herbicides, fungicides and insecticides. Crop protection chemicals aid in monitoring and controlling pests and diseases that may infect, consume, or damage crops. Furthermore, they also assist the farmers in managing crop productivity, improving overall yield, and enhancing food security. As a result, crop protection chemicals are utilized on various crop types, including cereals and grains, oilseeds and pulses, fruits and vegetables, etc. The report published by Bonafide Research, under the title, “Global Crop Protection Chemical Market Overview,2027”, gives a brief of the market, segmented by product type, by application, and by country. The segmental analyses have been detailed into herbicide, insecticide, fungicides & bactericides, and others, in terms of products, and in terms of application, the market is classified into cereals & grains, oilseeds & pulses, fruits & vegetables, and others. These segments are analyzed country-wise and the report also covers a detailed discussion about the trends, rules, and regulation across the world. The crop protection chemicals are designed in a way that is poisonous against the targeted species and the not harm the crop. Even though these chemicals are much protective to the plants, they come with their harm to the environment. The use of crop protection has increased in recent times given the increasing demand for food. The global crop protection chemical market witnessed a growth of around 4%, historically. On the other side, with the increasing awareness about the toxicity of the chemicals, many governments have come forward to restrict the use of such pesticides. With the excessive use of pesticides, traces of cancer, deformities in the immune system, hormonal imbalance, etc. have been studied in humans as well as wildlife. Even though these chemicals come with ample disadvantages, the market holds high potential, is likely to cross a value of USD 78 Billion by the end of 2027. Herbicides are the crop protection chemicals that are generally used to kill weeds, lead the global crop protection market, and in the forecasted period, this segment is likely to record the highest anticipated CAGR. The major advantage of the chemical herbicides is the cost reduction in weed removal which can be done manually otherwise. In general, the use of herbicides is said to be nontoxic to animals or humans, but when sprayed aerially, it can be fatal to the non-target plants too. In the year 2021, the segments of insecticides, and fungicides & bactericides, both held to a market value of more than USD 16 Billion each. The modernization of the agricultural sector has been a major driver in the market of crop protection at the global level. In terms of application, the use of crop protection chemicals is high in the oilseed & pulse segment. The major hurdle in the market growth is the need for a sustainable approach towards farming. This has given rise to innovation which is likely to bring in reforms in the agricultural practices, promising a better yield and being less toxic to nature. It is already known that the excessive use of pesticides has become a hazard to human health, but also has given birth to super-weed. Superweeds are the weeds or the unwanted plants that grow with the crops but have been tuned to the regular pesticides and now require more toxic formulas to kill. Crop protection chemicals are widely utilized in modern agriculture as an effective and economical solution to enhance crop yield by preventing crops from harmful pests and weeds. Thus, the rise in crop yield helps to ensure food security for the growing populations. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), Brazil, China, and the U.S are major consumers of these protection products. High usage of pesticides in these countries can be identified as one of the main causes for rising crop yield. Changes in climatic conditions have accelerated the occurrence and prevalence of plant diseases and pests. Climatic fluctuations have a significant impact on crop production and susceptibility to pest problems. Climate change increases the susceptibility of crops to different pests and diseases, which, in turn, affects crop yield. Therefore, any change in the climate leads to deviation in farming practices, leading to a decline in productivity. Further, irregular rainfall in various regions led to a rise in the fungal population. These factors have increased the dependability of farmers on the products for efficient pest prevention, thereby fueling the growth of the market. The Asia Pacific is a land of agriculture and also the highest contributor to the crop protection chemical market. However, through the forecasted period, this region is likely to record the lowest anticipated growth rate among the major regions. North America and Middle East & Africa are the two least contributing regions, which in the year 2021 accounted for quite less than 18% and 3% of the global market share respectively. COVID-19 Impact The outbreak of COVID-19 has affected public health as well as the global economy. The COVID-19 impact on the global economy has resulted in socio-economic disruptions; along with other industries, the spread of COVID-19 has affected the agriculture input sector. The coronavirus has impacted critical processes in the production and distribution of agrochemicals, from raw material imports to end-product manufacturing. The supply chain was hindered due to the travel restrictions imposed by many different countries globally. The fluctuating prices of chemicals as raw materials along with the inconsistent demand from the consumers during times of economic distress hampered the market growth rate.

If we find the market interesting, we start working on it and create the desired table of content, considering all aspects of the business. We start by creating separate questionnaires for C-level executives, national/regional sales personnel, company owners, dealers, distributors, and end-users. Once the questionnaires have been finalized, we start collecting the primary data (mostly through phone calls) and try to understand the market dynamics regionally or tier-wise. This process gives us in-depth details of the market, including all present companies, the top-performing products with reasons why they dominate; we get the details of new players and their innovative approaches; market trends; dynamics; and all the small details of the market. After the collection of primary inputs, we then cross-check the same with secondary sources that include associations, trade journals, annual reports, paid databases, newspapers, magazines, press releases, government sources, etc. From this, we get a rough estimate of the market and start checking existing product price variants, trade, production, raw material scenarios, policies and regulatory landscape, etc. Then, to finalize the market, we start collecting financials of each player present in the market, including limited, private limited, and LLPs. Moreover, we perform cross-industry and cross-region analysis of the product, and based on collected primary inputs and using statistical modeling, we start forecasting the market.
