Market Overview

Crop Protection Chemicals Market Size was valued at USD 95.82 billion by 2030, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.0% during the forecast period (2023–2030). Crop protection chemicals are used to safeguard the crops from conditions that pose potential damage to the growth of the crops. Crop protection chemicals have become an integral part of the agricultural practices. Without them, many crops would suffer dramatic losses. The most used crop protection chemicals include herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, and others. Each one has a distinct function such as herbicides kill or inhibit the growth of unwanted plants, insecticides kill arthropod pests, whereas fungicides destroy or prevent the growth of pathogenic fungi.

Crop protection chemicals market help in improving agricultural productivity by killing unwanted herbs and weeds in the plantation. Increasing population and growing demand for food have led to high agricultural productivity which is driving the growth of the crop protection chemicals market. Moreover, limited availability of cultivable land and the pressure to increase farm productivity is boosting the demand for crop protection chemicals.

Growing acceptance of modern farming is adding fuel to the growth of crop protection chemicals market. Owing to the demand for improving the efficiency of crop protection chemicals, major players are investing in research and development which is further boosting the growth of global crop protection chemicals market. However, hazards associated with synthetic crop protection chemicals have led to several stringent regulations on the use of crop protection chemicals which may hamper the growth of crop protection chemicals market. Nevertheless, all these factors are projected to contribute to the estimated CAGR of 4.9% of crop protection chemicals market during the forecast period 2023–2030.
