Overview of the global grain and cereal crop protection chemicals market
Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global grain and cereal crop protection chemicals market to grow at a CAGR of more than 5% by 2020. Factors such as soil erosion and land pollution have led to the reduction in the size of arable land and have subsequently forced farmers to increase the crop yield from limited size of the arable land. This requirement has increased the demand for crop protection chemicals, which helps in enhancing the yield and quality of crops. Pesticides are used to control the pests that feed on crops and also help in regaining the essential nutrients that are suitable for the crops. Moreover, the growing demand for food products, especially high-quality nutritious food, in the market will also augment the usage of pesticides so as to increase the crop yield and reduce the loss of crop from pests and diseases in the coming years.
The growing importance towards agricultural sustainability has led to the development of farming techniques, such as drip irrigation, crop protection, and soil management, to increase the crop yield. Several governments are providing subsidies and are also training farmers on using the new improved techniques for hybrid seeds, which require less water, less land, and grows at a faster rate. They are also encouraging the use of green pesticides to maintain the balance in the soil and to improve the crop productivity for future harvests.
Segmentation by type and analysis of the grain and cereal crop protection chemicals market
The herbicides segment will dominate the grain and cereal crop protection chemicals market during the forecast period and is expected to account for around 65% of the overall market share by 2020. Herbicides act by deterring the growth of the weed and are often the synthetic mimics of natural plant hormones. Due to their low cost, herbicides are extensively used as a crop protection chemical. This segment is expected to witness robust growth in the coming years because of the introduction of new herbicidal active ingredients and increased R&D investments.
Geographical segmentation and analysis of the grain and cereal crop protection chemicals market
APAC is expected to be the fastest-growing region in the market by 2020 where countries like China and India will be the major producers of crop protection chemicals. Factors such as the high growth of population and increasing consumption of food products have boosted the demand for crop protection chemicals in this region. Moreover, crops such as cotton, cereal, and maize are more prone to the insect attacks and require crop protection chemicals, which in turn will increase the usage of such products in the coming years. The market in APAC is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 6% by 2020.
Competitive landscape and key vendors
The market is characterized by the presence of numerous local, regional, and international vendors. The global players dominate the market with their advanced product portfolio. The local vendors compete with these players on the basis of sales network, price, product portfolio, quality, and technology. The competitive environment in this market will intensify during the forecast period with an increase in product portfolio, technological expertise, mergers and acquisitions, and agreements. The introduction of energy-efficient agricultural technologies in developing countries provides immense growth opportunities for the market players to increase their market shares.

The development of chemicals to protect grain and cereal crops is one of the most important activities in the chemical industry. Without these chemicals, most farmers would suffer significant crop losses. Although the environmental and toxicological properties of these chemical compounds have improved substantially over the last few years, research aims to produce chemicals that are not just potent but have a specific activity and do not have any harmful effects on the environment. Since pests have a tendency to develop resistance to crop protection, it is necessary for new products to be regularly introduced in the market. Crop protection chemicals mostly constitute – herbicides, substances that kill or inhibit the growth of weeds; insecticides, substances that kill arthropod pests; and fungicides, substances that destroy or prevent the growth of pathogenic fungi.
