Herbicides Market By Type (Diquat, Glyphosate, 2, 4-D), By Application (Pre-emergent, Post-emergent) By Crop type (Cereals & Grains,Fruits & Vegetables, Oilseeds & Pulses) - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2018-2023


Report Overview

GLOBAL HERBICIDES MARKET was valued at USD 24.09 Billion in the year 2017. Global Herbicides Market is further estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.64% from 2018 to reach USD 33.47 Billion by the year 2023.

The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), Syngenta AG (Switzerland), Monsanto Company (U.S.), Bayer CropScience AG (Germany), FMC Corporation (U.S.), E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company (U.S.), Nissan Chemical Industries Ltd. (Japan), BASF SE (Germany), Nufarm Ltd (Australia), Sumitomo Chemical (Japan), Bioworks Inc. (U.S.), Drexel Chemical Co. (U.S.) are some of the key players in the Global Herbicides market. Better global reach at the operational level is the main reason the key players are holding substantial market share. Rising research and development expenses to satisfy the changing demands of end users, new product launches and organic growth strategies were few techniques adopted by various manufacturers in last 5 years. In 2017, BASF collaborated with Monsanto to launch advanced dicamba-tolerant herbicide system with improved dicamba formulations providing farmers the tools they need to combat the yield-robbing weed resistance.

North America region holds the highest market share in 2017 and South America region is considered as the fastest growing market in the forecasted period due to growing demand and rising population. At a country level, the U.S. in North America and Brazil in South America holds the notable market share and is projected to grow strongly in the coming years due to the strongly growing agriculture sector and using herbicide as dominant pesticides.


             Increasing labor costs and labor shortage

             Increasing use of herbicide as weed/undesirable plants control agent

             Growing cultivation of genetically modifies (GM) crops


             Rising sale of non-genuine products

             Stringent environment regulations across the world


             High opportunities in Asia-pacific region

             Growing preference for herbicides


             Low focus on R&D due to high costs

             The outbreak of herbicide-resistant weeds

The segmentation is done on is the basis of Type, by application, by crop type, and by region. On the basis of types, the global Herbicides market is sub-segmented Diquat, Glyphosate, 2,4-D and others of which the glyphosate segment is expected to hold the highest market share during the forecast period due to vide application and high adoption rate of genetically modified (GM) seeds and crops.

The segmentation done on the basis of application the includes Pre-emergent and Post-emergent. On the basis of crop type industry, the market is segmented as cereals & grains, fruits & vegetables, Oilseeds & Pulses and Others of which cereals crop type is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecasted period due to rise in consumption and rapidly growing population.
