The global agricultural fumigants market has grown exponentially in the last few years. The market size is projected to reach USD 1.74 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of around 4.67% from 2016 to 2021. Emerging countries such as India, Japan, France, and China are the primary targets of the industry. Increasing demand for agricultural commodities, increasing post-harvest losses, and changing farming practices and storage technologies are some of the major driving factors for this market. 

The agricultural fumigants market based on type is segmented into methyl bromide, phosphine, chloropicrin, metam sodium, 1,3-dichloropropene, and others (including carbon dioxide, aluminum phosphide, magnesium phosphide, propylene oxide, sulfuryl fluoride, and dazomet). Phosphine fumigants accounted for the largest market share and it is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to the growing demand for agricultural crops that has led to the need for higher crop yield and reducing losses of agricultural commodities in warehouses. Phosphine is an active ingredient that helps in killing the insects in their various phases of development (e.g., larva, pupa, and adult). 

Asia-Pacific is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Changing farming practices and storage technology, and awareness toward reducing post-harvest losses are some of the factors driving this market. 

Regulatory changes such as Environmental Protection Laws and changing government policies across diverse geographies are restraints for the agricultural fumigants market players.
