The three emerging market trends driving the global crop protection chemicals market according to Technavio research analysts are:

  • Increasing use of herbicides and weed control
  • Introduction of biopesticides
  • Implementation of integrated pest management (IPM) as new method of crop protection

Increasing use of herbicides and weed control

The increasing use of herbicides is anticipated to drive the global crop protection chemicals market during the forecast period because of the huge investments made for the development of new varieties of herbicides, which are more effective and eco-friendly. These modern herbicides decompose quickly after application. Herbicides are widely used in a variety of crops such as grains, cereals, fruits, vegetables, pulses, and oilseeds. The increased use of herbicides is because of the shift in the preference of consumers toward fruits and green vegetables owing to the increasing awareness of consumers regarding health and fitness.

The Dow Chemical Company has recently launched two new grassland herbicides and claims to protect crop weeds that have become resistant to existent herbicide products. The two products are named Levstar and Envy. While the former is developed concentrating on controlling a wide range of weeds such as fat hen, charlock, chickweed, and perennial weeds such as docks, buttercups, and thistles, the latter is usually favored in non-productive pastures that are typically nutrient-deficient, worn-out, and over-grazed.

“Several industry players have been aiming at developing bio-based herbicides, a clean yet expensive solution for controlling weeds that have become resistant to chemical-based herbicides,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on agrochemicals and fertilizers.
