(I-BusinessNews.Com, May 05, 2021 ) The report "Pesticide Inert Ingredients Market by Type (Emulsifiers, Solvents, and Carriers), Source (Synthetic and Bio-based), Form (Dry and Liquid), Pesticide Type (Herbicides, Insecticides, Fungicides, and Rodenticides), and Region - Global Forecast to 2023", The pesticide inert ingredients market is projected to reach USD 4.7 billion by 2023, from USD 3.5 billion in 2018, at a CAGR of 6.14% during the forecast period. The market is driven by factors such as the increasing demand for specific inert ingredients in pesticide formulation and capability of inert ingredients to improve the efficacy of pesticide application.
With the increasing demand for organic fruits and vegetables, the bio-based segment is projected to witness the fastest growth, on the basis of source.
It has been witnessed that some of the inert ingredients used in pesticide formulation are more toxic than the active ingredients. Increasing health hazards associated with the usage of synthetic-based inert ingredients in pesticides creates an opportunity for the market players to develop bio-based inert ingredients from sources such as microbes for the formulation of bio-based pesticides. Governmental bodies and regulatory authorities have introduced regulations for the use of toxic pesticides, which affects the growth of bio-based inert ingredients in the market.
On the basis of form, the liquid segment is projected to account for a higher share in the pesticide inert ingredients market during the forecast period.
Liquid inert ingredients reduce waste and have a larger target coverage area. In addition, the uniformity and ease in mixing the liquid inert ingredients in pesticide formulations are key factors driving the demand for these forms among local manufacturers in developing countries. Thus, the liquid segment is estimated to dominate the pesticide inert ingredients market. Most of the pesticide formulations are also available in liquid form and thus the share for the liquid segment is projected to remain high.
The Asia Pacific is projected to witness the fastest growth in the inert ingredients market through 2023.
Agriculture is one of the largest industries in the Asia Pacific region, with a large share of farmland and good soil fertility. Moreover, the region is rich in plant diversity due to the wide variations in climate across countries. Even though there is a variation in the agriculture system from basic systems in India to the technically advanced ones in Japan, the agenda of food security is supported by local governments in the Asian countries. The Asia Pacific region is one of the leading consumers of pesticides across the globe, though the region mainly depends on imports of pesticide supply. Since inert ingredients are majorly consumed by pesticide manufacturers at the production facility during the formulation stage, and since countries such as India, Thailand, and Vietnam depend on imports for formulations, the market for inert ingredients is projected to be smaller compared to the Americas and Europe. However, with the increasing establishment of production plants in the Asian countries, the use of inert ingredients along with pesticide application is projected to increase in the future.
