Global Agricultural Adjuvant Market, By Crop Type (Cereals & Grains, Oilseeds & Pulses, Fruits & Veg

Published Date: | Report Code : FA1955451

X

A shift from chemically synthesized adjuvant to environment-friendly agricultural adjuvant is expected to drive the growth of the global agricultural adjuvant market during the forecast period. This has resulted in some of the key developments by companies operating in the market to consolidate their market positions and look for further niche opportunities.

Agricultural adjuvants are secondary products that enhance efficiency and enable agrochemical functions such as insecticides, herbicides, and fungicides. Adjuvants fulfill a variety of tasks, enhancing the wettability of the crop protection chemical, ensuring uniform leaf spread, increasing penetration for systemic crop protection chemicals, enhancing compatibility with foliar fertilizer sprays, etc. To address global food demand, the need for improved agricultural productivity has necessitated increased use of crop protection chemicals, which in turn drives the agricultural adjuvant market. The market is also growing as a result of increased emphasis on enhanced effectiveness of crop protection chemicals under various climatic conditions, prompting innovation in terms of the adjuvants used in them.

Segment Analysis:

During the forecast period, the surfactants segment is likely to record the highest growth in the market for agricultural adjuvants. The growing demand among users for nutrient-dense crops has prompted farmers to use agricultural adjuvants such as activator additives to inhibit crop destruction and degradation in quality. Farmers are constantly making use of activator additives such as surfactants as they enhance spray and contact area retention, modify plant foliage, reduce spray solution surface tension, and improve the movement of plant foliage to better absorption areas. As surfactant use enhances pesticide droplet retention, the demand for these agricultural adjuvants remains high among farmers. Owing to these factors, it is projected that the surfactants segment will record the highest market growth throughout the forecast period.

The organosilicon segment is expected to register the highest growth in the market during the forecast period. As the demand for efficient crop protection technologies remains, manufacturers are relying on using surfactants based on organosilicon to develop new and reliable adjuvant formulations. These surfactants are increasingly preferred by farmers as they relieve surface tension, which prevents phytotoxicity and helps pesticides penetrate the leave’s stomata. Because of these variables, the segment of organosilicon is expected during the forecast period to record the highest development in the market of agricultural adjuvants.

North America accounted for the majority of the global adjuvant market share in 2018, while all the other regions held smaller shares. North America is one of the most advanced crop protection technologies markets. The use of crop protection chemicals in the United States in 2018 was as high as 2,38 kg per hectare. The use of adjuvants is also higher with large acreages under crops such as corn and soybean, which consume large amounts of crop protection chemicals. The use of adjuvants is also at a high point at the farmer-level, with greater knowledge of the scientific methods of crop protection. 

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Growing demand for agrochemicals
  • Increasing demand for food owing to the increasing population
  • A shift from chemically synthesized adjuvant to environment-friendly agricultural adjuvant
