The global agricultural fumigants market has grown exponentially in the last few years. The market size is projected to reach USD 1.74 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of around 4.67% from 2016 to 2021. Emerging countries such as India, Japan, France, and China are the primary targets of the industry. Increasing demand for agricultural commodities, increasing post-harvest losses, and changing farming pratices and storage technologies are some of the major driving factors for this market.

The agricultural fumigants market based on type is segmented into methyl bromide, phosphine, chloropicrin, metam sodium, 1,3-dichloropropene, and others (including carbon dioxide, aluminum phosphide, magnesium phosphide, propylene oxide, sulfuryl fluoride, and dazomet). Phosphine fumigants accounted for the largest market share and it is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to the growing demand for agricultural crops that has led to the need for higher crop yield and reducing losses of agricultural commodities in warehouses. Phosphine is an active ingredient that helps in killing the insects in their various phases of development (e.g., larva, pupa, and adult).

The agricultural fumigants market, based on application, is segmented into soil and warehouse. Warehouse accounted for the largest share of this market in 2015. Warehouse application in this market is growing as crop protection is necessary to reduce the losses of stored crops.  The warehouse segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2021. Soil fumigation yields good-quality seeds and improves crop performance,y decreasing weed and eliminating parasitic attack by nematodes.

In the form segment, the market is segmented on the basis of gaseous, solid, and liquid. The liquid form accounted for the largest market share in 2015. The gaseous form is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2021. The importance of gaseous form is increasing as it is the most effective manner to reach insects in stored grains and on crops or soil in their most remote places. Liquid fumigants are used mostly in many regions due to their safe application and usage for bulk grains and agricultural commodities.
