The report segments the global grain and cereal crop protection chemicals market into four major types. They are:

  • Herbicides
  • Insecticides
  • Fungicides
  • Others

The three most important segments are discussed below:

Global grain and cereal crop protection chemicals market by herbicides

The global grain and cereal crop protection chemicals market by herbicides is expected to exceed USD 11 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of over 6%. Herbicides are the chemicals used to control or kill unwanted vegetation. These are classified according to their chemical structure, use, and effect on plants. They are also classified according to their toxicity and hazard level. Based on the effects produced by the herbicide, they are grouped as selective and non-selective herbicides.

Selective herbicides subdue or kill weeds without affecting the crop or other desirable plant species. Non-selective herbicides are not specific in their action and suppress all vegetation that these are in contact with. Herbicides that persist in the soil for less than a month at the time of treatment are considered as fast degrading herbicides and used to control weeds. Those persisting for 1-3 months may protect the crop only during the early growing season. Herbicides with persistence of 3-12 months are used primarily for total vegetation control.

According to Chandrakumar Badala Jaganathan, a lead analyst at Technavio for agrochemicals and fertilizers research, “The global herbicides market will experience a substantial growth because of the introduction of new herbicidal active ingredients. In addition, key vendors have increased their R&D expenditure to innovate new products.” However, factors such as the growing resistance of weeds to herbicides, stringent government regulations, and patent expiries may restrict the market growth during the forecast period.

Global grain and cereal crop protection chemicals market by fungicides

The global grain and cereal crop protection chemicals market by fungicides is expected to exceed USD 2 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of over 5%. Fungicides are formulated to inhibit or kill the growth of fungus on crops and plants. Biofungicides are fungicides that are synthesized from natural sources. An increase in the global demand for food has increased the load on farmers to enhance their crop yield. Therefore, they are increasingly adopting crop protection mechanisms such as fungicides to meet the demand for food. Some of the conventional fungicides include triazoles, strobilurins, and dithiocarbamates.

The global fungicides market will experience a steady growth because of the increasing demand from APAC, particularly from India and China. An increase in innovative products such as genetically modified (GM) seeds that address diverse climatic conditions is a major driver for this market.

Global grain and cereal crop protection chemicals market by insecticides

The global grain and cereal crop protection chemicals market by insecticides is expected to exceed USD 3 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of over 4%. Insecticides protect plants by killing insects or restricting their growth and reducing their attacks. “The use of insecticides is more prevalent in Asian countries such as India and China due to the higher cultivation of cotton, cereal, fruits, and vegetables, says Chandrakumar. These crops are more susceptible to insect attacks. Some of the conventional insecticides include pyrethroids, organophosphates, and neonicotinoids.

The market will grow a steady pace during the forecast period owing to an increase in the use of insecticides. Large quantities of insecticides are used to inhibit insect growth and enhance the global crop yield. However, stringent regulations that aim to reduce the toxicity of these products and patent expiry will restrict the market growth during the forecast period.
