The world population is growing at an alarming rate. It is estimated that by 2050, the global population will grow more than nine billion, thus reducing the arable land. With the rising population, the food demand will also increase. The demand for animal feed and biofuel will also surge the demand for agricultural production. Also, soil erosion and land pollution are reducing the size of arable land per person. This puts pressure on farmers to increase the yield of the land with the limited size of the agricultural land. This is in turn increasing the demand for agrochemicals, which help in enhancing the yield and quality of crops. Pesticides help in controlling the pests that feed on crops and soil nutrients.

Rising awareness about pesticide residues in food has led to an increase in the adoption of organic food. Many initiatives have been taken worldwide to reduce the carbon content emitted by synthetic pesticides. Organic farming has grown into a multi-billion dollar industry in recent years, creating opportunities in the global agricultural industry and providing a base for more sustainable farming.

According to the report, the growing population worldwide is leading to high demand for food. Disposable incomes in developing countries such as China and India are also rising, resulting in an increase in per capita consumption of agricultural products. The consumers in these countries are expanding their diets with dietary changes manifested in the form of increased demand for grain-intensive animal protein and dairy products. Various governments are implementing new policies to meet food security concerns, thereby increasing food productivity. This, in turn, will propel the demand for crop protection chemicals.
