Covered Market USP:

Market leader:

Various regions have agricultural countries such as the Asia-Pacific region consisting of Indonesia, India, Thailand and South Korea. These countries depend mainly on their agricultural production, which in turn accounts for a significant part of GDP. For these countries, agricultural products have a direct impact on the economy. Therefore, agricultural committees are being educated on the benefits of using efficient chemicals and products that can increase crop yields with minimal crop loss. A good example of such a product is a fungicide.

Fungicides are used extensively in a wide variety of crops such as cereals and grains, oilseeds, legumes, and fruits and vegetables. Government agencies worldwide are trying to raise farmers’ awareness of the importance of fungicides and various pesticides, along with information matrices such as the amount to be used per crop type, the assessment of infection types and the time interval between successive doses. This helps ensure safe and efficient farming practices, resulting in optimal benefits.

Lower awareness and commercialization of agricultural coatings are slowing market growth. Agricultural coatings have significant application costs, which limits their use.

COVID-19 Analysis

The fungicide market has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. Faced with the pandemic scenario, numerous countries have had to go into lockdown to control the rising cases. Because of this, the demand and supply chain has been disrupted, affecting the global market. The infrastructure projects, production units, industries and various operations had to be put on hold due to the pandemic situation.

The volatile cost of raw materials and the decline in the production rate of various crops as the pandemic spreads further will challenge the global market. On the plus side, the situation is getting back to normal, which means the market will grow better going forward.

The fungicides sector has the highest share with 48.41% and could grow by 3.88% in the following years. The leaf segment can expect to reach the highest CAGR of 4.90% in the probable period.

Regional Insights

In 2020, Asia-Pacific market share was 30.48%, while North America ranked close second that year. It is likely that the North American market will reach a CAGR of 4.05% in the coming years, while the Asia-Pacific market will reach the highest growth rate of 4.70%, MRFR expects.

The Asia-Pacific region has been quite lucrative for fungicide manufacturers. The APAC market is largely supported by fast-rising countries like China and India, which are the largest producers of vegetables, grains and fruits. The governments of these economies and various farming communities are promoting the use of modern farming practices and raising farmers’ awareness of the uses of different chemicals, soil conditions, application of fungicides and crop species. This should have a significant impact on overall crop production, albeit with less investment.

North America took a reasonable share of almost 27.52% of the fungicide market in 2020. Given the robust demand for fungicides in the US, the regional market is expected to reach a healthy growth rate of 4.05% through 2028. Demand in the country is increasing due to low global prices for much of the crop and unpredictable weather conditions. These unfavorable conditions prevail in most of the country’s fertilizer-consuming and agricultural areas. Increasing grain demand in the region, significant population density and heightened food security concerns will also boost market value in the region.
