Global Agrochemicals Market (2015 - 2020) - Increased Pressure on Dwindling Farmlands as a Result of Growing Population - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/g7tvhb/global) has announced the addition of the "Global Agrochemicals Market - Market Shares, Forecasts & Trends (2015-2020)" report to their offering.

The global agrochemicals market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 3.7% during the forecast period of 2015-2020.

One of the main reasons for the growth in consumption is increased pressure on dwindling farmlands as a result of growing population and urbanization. The ambitious project of global food security is expected to generate steady demand for the chemicals. It is also expected to bring innovations such as improved product performance and reduction in production cost and final product.. While the benefit of agrochemicals is commendable and people are getting aware of it, the toxicity of synthetic products forms the major challenge for this industry.

The demand for pesticides is growing at a higher rate given the increased occurrence of various pests and diseases. Pesticides market is currently lead by herbicides products (covering 41.5%) followed by fungicides and insecticides. Further, the market is segmented by crop and non crop basis; grains and cereals tend to consume most of the agrochemical products followed by oil seed crops. Plant growth regulators provide a more natural way of managing and enhancing the growth process of agricultural plants. Increasing popularity of GM crops and high regulatory constraints pertaining to the usages of agrochemicals act as major constraints for the industry.
