The global agrochemicals market size is predicted to reach USD 246.1 billion by 2025 and is anticipated to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.4% from 2020 to 2025. Asia Pacific is estimated to hold the largest market share during the forecast period. The global agrochemicals market size was valued at USD 208.6 billion in 2020.
Nitrogen fertilizer, by fertilizer type, is estimated to account for the largest market share during the forecast period
Nitrogen fertilizers are the most widely used fertilizers in agricultural field. Amongst all nitrogen fertilizer, urea is the most used nitrogenous fertilizer in countries across the globe because of its high N content (46%N). Hence, it is one of the most widely used dry granular sources of nitrogen. It is preferred by the fertilizer manufacturing industry since it is relatively easy to manufacture. On a ton-for-ton basis, urea contains 35% more nitrogen than ammonium nitrate. This has implications on the storage and transport of nitrogen fertilizer products. Urea is considered a relatively stable product to store and transport, and it is for this reason that the transportation of urea is considered very cost-effective in comparison to its most common alternative, ammonium nitrate. Although urea often offers farmers the most nitrogen for the lowest price on the market, special steps must be taken when applying urea to the soil to prevent the loss of nitrogen through a chemical reaction.
Herbicides, by type, is estimated to hold the largest market share during the forecast period
The agrochemicals market, by pesticide type, has been segmented into insecticides, herbicides, fungicides and other. Herbicides accounted for the largest segment during the forecast period. This is attributed to the wide acceptance of herbicides in the cultivation of a variety of crops. They are convenient to use for crops such as sugarcane, rice, soybean, and cotton, among others. Rapidly advancing technology in the agricultural and allied sectors has also impacted conventional agricultural practices. It has made the use of external agents more efficient in terms of productivity. Using herbicides to eradicate weeds at an early stage helps increase the productivity and yield per unit, which has led to increased use by producers across the globe. Rising safety and environmental concerns have led to regulatory action in many countries, causing some restraints for the growth of the herbicides market. Major chemicals such as glyphosate and atrazine, among others, are regularly scrutinized, especially in Europe. However, considering the increasing use of herbicides, the market is very promising and is likely to expand.
Asia Pacific is estimated to hold the largest market share during the forecast period
The Asia Pacific agrochemicals market is fragmented among multinational companies and numerous small-scale manufacturers who produce fertilizers and pesticides depending on the crops cultivated. There are more global players in the market that are trying to enter the Asia Pacific region by undertaking mergers & acquisitions or partnerships. The demand for fertilizers and pesticides has been growing in this region due to the increasing investment of overseas business lines in agricultural inputs to exclusively meet the demand of crop growers for attaining export quality.
