World Agricultural Pesticides

As Quoted In Farm Chemicals International

Good prospects exist in Brazil, the US, China, and Argentina, with sales of pesticides in Brazil and Argentina aided by industrial feedstock crops and more sophisticated farming techniques.

Brazil to surpass US and become largest world market by 2016

The world agricultural pesticide industry has been transformed by several years of robust growth coupled with new environmental regulations and changing crop mix trends. Increased farming of biofuel crops and the use of genetically modified (GM) seeds caused pesticide sales in Argentina and Brazil to more than double between 2006 and 2011, with Brazil surpassing the US to become the largest market in the world. China became the fourth largest national market as rising pesticide production in the country improved domestic pesticide availability and facilitated sharply increasing utilization rates.

Going forward, growth in global formulated pesticide demand will return to more sustainable levels following strong gains from 2006 to 2011, with sales forecast to approach $59 billion in 2016. Significant opportunities will exist in Brazil, the US, China, and Argentina. Sales of pesticides in Brazil and Argentina will be aided by increasing demand for industrial feedstock crops and the use of more sophisticated farming techniques. The US will remain the second largest market, benefiting from its vast amount of cropland and pesticide use rates that are higher than the world average. China’s growth will slow to a more sustainable level, but remain above average as growers make the change from older generic products to newer proprietary formulations.

Fastest growth to occur in developing countries

The fastest growth in pesticide demand is expected in developing countries in Eastern Europe, South America, and Asia. Growing production of rapeseed and cereal crops, along with improved farming techniques, will drive demand in Eastern Europe. Ukraine and Russia will offer strong growth potential due to their low utilization rates compared to other European countries. In contrast, demand growth in Western Europe, Japan, and South Korea will be weak, hindered by market maturity and already high use rates. A shift in product mix and the use of integrated pest management (IPM) techniques will restrain growth in Western Europe.

Most pesticides to continue evolving, raising prices

Herbicide resistance continues to be an issue and is driving demand for new formulations with multiple active ingredients, which will command higher prices going forward. While insecticide demand will benefit from the adoption of higherpriced, safer products, growth will be restrained by environmental concerns, the use of IPM techniques, and the popularity of insect-resistant crop varieties. Fungicide demand will be affected by two trends in product mixes: the switch to synthetic fungicides over commodities in developing regions; and the need for more sophisticated, effective products in developed nations.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $49 billion world agricultural pesticide industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by product (e.g., herbicides, insecticides, fungicides), crop (e.g., corn, wheat, rice, soybeans), world region and for 43 countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 47 industry participants, including Syngenta, Bayer and BASF.
