Pesticides: Europe

This report forecasts to 2025 pesticide demand and production in nominal US dollars at the manufacturer level in Europe. Total demand is segmented by product in terms of: herbicides; fungicides; insecticides; and other pesticides such as bactericides, desiccants, and defoliants. Total demand is also segmented by market as follows: agriculture, commercial, and consumer.

To illustrate historical trends, total demand is provided in annual series from 2010 to 2020; production and the various demand segments are reported at five-year intervals for 2010, 2015, and 2020.

Excluded from coverage in this report are bulk commodities such as copper, sulfur, and petroleum oils; wood preservatives; disinfectants and antimicrobials – which are often regulated as pesticides; animal traps; animal baits without pesticidal ingredients; veterinary and animal health products; cleaning products; and bleach. Unless otherwise specified, data are for formulated pesticide products (i.e., the first level of formulation after the production of technical-grade pesticide active ingredients).

For any given historical year, US dollar amounts are obtained from values expressed in the applicable local currency. These local currency values are converted to US dollars at the average annual exchange rate for that year. For forecast years, the US dollar amounts assume the same annual exchange rate as that prevailing in 2020.

Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided with quantified trends. Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading companies, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
