Overview of the global glyphosate market

Technavio's market study identifies the benefits such as long-term effectiveness and protection to crops to be one of the primary factors that will fuel the growth of the glyphosate market during the next few years. Glyphosate is considered environmentally safe due to its low toxic content and its ability to bind soil materials and is used multiple times during the crop growing season. Glyphosate has minimal herbicidal activity in soil and is used for crop production and foliar spray applications. Our market research analysts estimate that the glyphosate market will grow steadily at a CAGR of almost 7% by 2021.

Genetically modified (GM) seeds are profitable to the farmers as they provide high yield in low cost. GM crops facilitate agricultural development, growth, and sustainability. Regions such as APAC and the Americas are increasingly adopting genetically modified (GM) crops as these are sustainable, cost-effective, and have high profit potential. According to our industry research report, the increasing adoption of GM seeds and crops will be one of the major factors that will gain traction in the glyphosate market during the next few years.
