The Global Crop Protection Chemicals Market is Expected to Reach $55.96 Billion by 2023 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

November 7, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 7, 2018--The “Crop Protection Chemicals Market - Segmented by Product, Application, and Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The global market for pesticides was worth USD 48.97 billion in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 55.96 billion by 2023, registering a CAGR of 2.7%.

Adoption of Bio-pesticides

Bio-pesticides are less harmful as compared to regular synthetic pesticides. As a result, they typically affect only the target pest and other organisms that are closely related to it, as against broad-spectrum conventional pesticides, which can be harmful to other organisms.

Although the bio-pesticide segment generated a small fraction of the revenue generated by the chemical industry, the segment is likely to witness a CAGR of 3.4% during the forecast period.

Growing Food Demand & Shrinking Land

The global population is increasing exponentially and every day, nearly 200,000 people are contributing to the global food demand. According to the US Population Division, the global population has increased nearly fourfold in the past 100 years and is projected to reach 9.2 billion by 2050. Supplying food to this growing population has become a global challenge.

Per capita farmland in 2030 is expected to decrease to 1800 m from 2,200 m in 2005. Various crop pests contribute to the decrease, causing 10-16% global crop losses annually. Thus, crop protection is the key strategy adopted by farmers to meet global food demand. Pesticides are a proven technology used to increase global food production.
