Jun 01, 2015, 16:31 ET from ReportBuyer

LONDON, June 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- By application area, crop-based end-uses of pesticides are likely to maintain the fastest growth in terms of volume consumed and value demand during the similar period, and retain the leading raking in terms of largest application area. The worldwide consumption of Pesticides in Crop-Based applications is the largest, estimated at 1.9 million tons in 2014 . Within Crop-Based applications, use of pesticides is the largest for protecting Grains & Cereals, estimated to account for a share of 75.6% in 2014 that equates to 1.5 million tons in volume and US$33.8 billion by value and which is expected to maintain a 2015-2020 CAGR of 6.3% and 7% .

Increased demand for restricting damage to crops has necessitated greater use of various kinds of pesticides for controlling or eliminating weeds, insects and fungi. Several developments across various formats of pesticides have been successful in countering highly resistant forms of infestations, and this trend is likely to continue into the future, too.

Factors driving the markets for pesticides applications in crops include improving crop yields to meet the requirements of increasing population and decreasing arable lands. On the other hand, regulatory authorities such as EPA (Environment Protection Agency) frequently come up with stringent laws related to curbing pesticide use for alleviating environmental damage and increasing consumer awareness about pesticide consumption, which is expected to be instrumental in slowing down growth in demand for synthetic pesticides. In addition, several highly toxic pesticides have either been banned or are in the process of being phased out, thereby opening new avenues for growth in demand for Biopesticides

Governments in several countries have come up with initiatives aimed at promoting the development and use of Biopesticides because of their low toxicity, greater safety and higher effectiveness in controlling pests. However, growth in the market has also been hampered due to the entrenched pesticides market, low per capita usage of pesticides in several regions, shrinking farm lands, and burgeoning research and development costs.

This report provides segmentation based on application type viz Herbicides, Insecticides, Fungicides and Other Synthetic Pesticides, while categories of Biopesticides include Bioherbicides, Bioinsecticides, Biofungicides and Other Biopesticides. Synthetic pesticides dominate the global scenario in terms of volume consumption and value demand, though Biopesticides are slated to register faster growth in both these parameters over the 2015-2020 analysis period. North America and Europe are the two largest markets for Pesticides as used in Grains & Cereals, and Asia-Pacific and Latin America are forecast as the fastest growing.

Major companies covered in the report include American Vanguard, Arysta LifeScience, BASF SE, Bayer CropScience, BioWorks, Cheminova, Chemtura Corp, Chr Hansen, Dow AgroSciences, DuPont, FMC Corp, Isagro SpA, Ishihara Sangyo Kaisha, Makhteshim Agan, Marrone Bio Innovations, Monsanto, Natural Industries, Novozymes A/S, Nufarm Ltd, Sumitomo Chemical, Syngenta AG and Valent Biosciences.
