Historical data for 2010, 2015 and 2020, and forecasts to 2025 and 2030 are provided for demand in current (including inflation) US dollars and/or metric tons of active ingredient. 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). As used in this study, the term “demand” refers to sales or apparent consumption. Tabular details may not add to totals due to independent rounding. Ratios may be rounded for the sake of clarity.
