The agricultural adjuvants market was valued at USD 2.51 Billion in 2015; the market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% from 2016 to 2021. With the increasing pressure on global food production and development in farming practices & technologies adoption, the demand for agrochemicals is expected to increase which in turn would enhance the growth of the agricultural adjuvants market.

The objective of the study is to define, segment, and measure the agricultural adjuvants market. This market is segmented on the basis of its type, application, crop type, and region, which is further segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World (RoW). The report also aims at providing detailed information regarding the crucial factors influencing the growth of the market (drivers, restraints, opportunities, and industry-specific challenges) and to analyze opportunities in the market for stakeholders and details of the competitive landscape for market leaders. For the purpose of the study, 2015 is considered as the base year, and 2016 and 2021 are considered as the estimated and the projected years, respectively.

This report includes estimations of market sizes in terms of value (USD million) and volume (KT). Both, top-down and bottom-up approaches have been used to estimate and validate the size of the global agricultural adjuvants market, and to estimate the size of various other dependent submarkets in the overall market. The key players in the market have been identified through secondary sources (such as Factiva, Hoovers, European Crop Protection Association, and British Agrochemicals Association), and their market shares in the respective regions have been determined through primary and secondary research. All percentage shares, splits, and breakdowns have been determined using secondary sources and verified through primary sources.

The agricultural adjuvants market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% from 2015, to reach a projected value of USD 3.51 Billion by 2021. The market is driven by factors such as the increasing demand for agrochemicals due to the increase in pressure on global food production and changing farming practices & technologies.

The agricultural adjuvants market is segmented in two types activator and utility adjuvants. The market is estimated to be led by activator adjuvants in 2016. Surfactants are active materials that facilitate the functions of agrochemicals, and improve the efficiency of pesticide formulations or spray solutions. They dominate the activator adjuvants market, owing to their use on a large scale in regions where there is a decrease in arable land so as to increase the efficiency of crop protection chemicals and meet the increasing demand for agricultural products.

Based on application, herbicides accounted for the largest market share in 2015, followed by fungicides. Herbicides are used in agricultural lands to control or kill weeds. The herbicides segment in the agricultural adjuvants market is mainly driven by changes in farming practices and technologies. Adjuvants strongly manipulate interactions with the pest and pesticide. The physiochemical factors of an adjuvant, such as spray retention, adhesion, spreading, wetting, and systemic factors (the uptake rate of the active ingredient), decide the efficacy of a pesticide.

North America accounted for the largest market share in the agricultural adjuvants market in 2015, which was followed by Europe. Growth in these regions is due to high rate of adoption of new technologies, so as to increase the farm operations efficiency and minimize the cost of operations. The Asia-Pacific region is projected to be the fastest-growing market due to the commercialized cultivation of corn, soybean, coffee, and sugarcane crops.

Agricultural Adjuvants Market

Stringent government regulations on the usage of agrochemicals and adjuvant products pose as one of the major challenges for the agricultural adjuvants market. Growing environmental concerns and use of genetically modified seeds pose as restraints for the market.

The leading players that dominated the agricultural adjuvants market include The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), Akzonobel N.V (The Netherlands), Evonik Industries (Germany), and Solvay S.A (Belgium). The key players explored the market in new regions by adopting strategies such as acquisitions, new product launches, expansions & investments, and agreements, partnerships, collaborations, and joint ventures.
