Worldwide Insecticides & Insect Control 2018: Reviews New Active Ingredients & Focuses on the Commercial Introductions Made During 2012-2018 -

DUBLIN--()--The "Insecticides & Insect Control 2018" report has been added to's offering.

Key Insights Included:

  • Company Profiles
  • Active Ingredients
  • Case Studies
  • Regulatory Pressures

This report presents an overview of current progress in the development and commercialisation of new insecticides, including acaricides and nematicides. The focus is on chemical control, but updates on new bioinsecticides and bionematicides are included.

Several brief case studies illustrating the benefits of insecticides are given. These include controlling soybean aphids in the US. Only introduced into the country from Asia in 2000, soybean aphids can cause 45% yield loss.

Another example is the Mediterranean fruit fly or medfly, which is one of the world's most destructive pests of fruit and vegetables. It is estimated that a USDA-led eradication programme in Mexico lasting 30 years up to 2008 resulted in extra fruit and vegetable production valued at $40 billion.

Insecticides accounted for around 28% of total sales in the global chemical crop protection market in 2017. Sales of insecticide seed treatments are growing at a CAGR of 8.5%, faster than the 5% CAGR for sprays.

This important report reviews new active ingredients and focuses on the commercial introductions made during 2012 to 2018.
