DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/gv5jxw/global_herbicides) has announced the addition of the "Global Herbicides Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.
The Global Herbicides market to grow at a CAGR of 6.58% over the period 2013-2018
Herbicides are a class of pesticides that are formulated to restrict the growth of, or kill, weeds that have a negative impact on crop nutrition and growth. Herbicides synthesized from natural sources are commonly known as bio-herbicides. The major types of herbicides used include glyphosate-based herbicides. Herbicides are also used for non-crop applications such as turf and ornamental management.
One major trend in the market is an increase in demand from emerging markets such as Latin America and the APAC region. Key vendors have enhanced their presence in these regions to cater to the expected increase in demand for herbicides.
According to the report, one of the most important drivers of the market is the improvement of pest management practices in several countries. Such programs involve the training of farmers to enable better management of weeds that affect crop nutrition.
Further, the report states that one of the key challenges of the market is the expiry of patents of over 10 active ingredients during the forecast period of 2013-2018. Such patent expirations lead to the introduction of generic versions available at a low cost, thus contributing to a lowered market size.
