Pesticides

US growth for formulated pesticide products will advance based on herbicide demand, the largest active ingredient, showing the strongest growth, especially in the agriculture market.

US demand to reach $12.1 billion in 2016

After a period of overall slow growth, US demand for formulated pesticide products is forecast to grow 2.6 percent per year to $12.1 billion in 2016. Over the same period, demand for active ingredients will increase by 1.4 percent per year to 945 million pounds, valued at $4.8 billion. The pricing climate is expected to continue to stabilize following a period of erratic pricing for glyphosate, the leading active ingredient. Gains will be driven by rising demand in all three market segments: agriculture, commercial, and consumer.

Herbicides to remain leading active ingredient

Herbicides will remain the dominant product type, accounting for over half of the market in value terms and 66 percent in volume terms in 2016. Herbicides will also show the strongest growth, although as glyphosate continues to lead the market as the largest active ingredient, farmers will be looking to supplement their glyphosate use with herbicides using different modes of action. Atrazine and 2,4-D, both commonly used herbicides, will expand their market presence as farmers use them for secondary treatment. Demand for dicamba and glufosinate will also rise, particularly when new versions of dicamba- and glufosinatetolerant crops become available. Herbicides will also post growth in the consumer market, particularly as readyto- use formulations remain popular.

Insecticides are expected to exhibit slow growth, as volume demand is projected to rise slightly, but gains will be limited by little change in the average price. The best growth prospects will be for products that can replace organophosphates and carbamates, both controversial and potentially harmful classes of chemicals. Usage patterns will move toward insecticides that can be applied in lower doses and have fewer harmful effects on nontarget species.

Fungicide active ingredients are forecast to show slow growth, with gains largely due to increases in the number of resistant diseases that are affecting crops, particularly fruit crops. Opportunities for growth will also arise with products that can be used as safer alternatives for fungicidal fumigants, mainly as products like methyl bromide leave the market.

Agricultural market to increase most rapidly

The agricultural market is expected to register the most rapid growth for active ingredients. Gains will be fueled by an increase in demand for herbicides in particular, as farmers continue to battle weed resistance. The consumer market will be the next fastest growing segment, particularly as the economy continues to recover and homeowners become more willing to spend money on home and garden products. The commercial market will see slow growth, largely due to slight increases in space for commercial and industrial uses.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $10.7 billion US pesticides industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by formulated and active ingredient product, (e.g., herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, fumigants, defoliants and desiccants, rodenticides, nematicides, biopesticides) and market (e.g., agriculture by type, agriculture by crop, commercial, consumer).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 36 industry competitors, including Syngenta, Bayer and Monsanto.
