On the basis of type, the glyphosate segment is projected to have the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2022. Glyphosate-based products are being increasingly adopted in various forms such as gels and powders, which are more convenient for application and more cost-effective.
The non-selective segment, by mode of action, is projected to have the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2022. Non-selective herbicides are formulated for both, broadleaf and grass weeds; they find application on almost all vegetation types and are preferred over selective herbicides.
Oilseeds & pulses, by crop type, is projected to be the fastest-growing segment from 2016 to 2022. This is due to increasing usage of herbicides on soybean and pea crops, as these crops do not naturally compete well for soil nutrients and sunlight necessary for growth against weeds and are more prone to damage.Â
The Asia-Pacific market is projected to have the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2022. Demand is relatively high in the Asia-Pacific region due to advancements in crop protection techniques against weeds, demand for low-priced generic herbicide formulations, agricultural policies & trade reforms, and research initiated by governments of different countries in this region.
South American countries such as Brazil and Argentina see major agricultural growth due to the high availability of arable land for cultivation and climatic conditions suitable for farming. The key players in the herbicides market are BASF SE (Germany), The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), E.I. Du Pont De Nemours and Company (U.S.), Monsanto Company (U.S.), and Syngenta AG (Switzerland).
