The global crop protection chemicals market is segmented into all major regions and further, their key countries. In terms of regions, the report is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Rest of the World (RoW). Asia-Pacific and North America are the top two consumers of crop protection chemicals, accounting together for nearly 50% of the total market share. Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing region, in terms of revenue.

The global crop protection market is also segmented on the basis of type herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, and others and also by crop type cereals & grains, oilseeds & pulses, fruits & vegetables, and others.

The crop protection chemicals market is mainly driven by the limited availability of arable land, high profitability margin, acceptance of modern farming and protected agriculture, and changes in farming practices and technology. To capitalize on the growth trend in the global crop protection market, several leading companies are investing in the development and manufacturing of crop protection chemicals. The growing demand for crop protection chemicals is compelling global players to widen their crop protection offerings.

This report also profiles leading players of this industry, along with their recent developments and other strategic activities. The players include Syngenta (Switzerland), BASF (Germany), Dow AgroSciences (U.S.), and DuPont (U.S.). Agreements, partnerships, and collaborations are the most common strategies followed by these companies, and are predicted to give a new dimension to this market from 2014 to 2019.

Crop protecting external agents such as herbicides, fungicides, and insecticides are used to kill unwanted plants and pests. The global crop protection chemicals market has been witnessing a lot of technological advancements and developments over the past few years. The changing buyers’ preferences, stringent environmental regulations, changing weather conditions, increased agricultural trade, and improved farming practices are triggering innovations and research efforts of the crop protection chemicals industry. The global market for crop protection chemicals, owing to its significant impact not only on human health, but also on the environment, is a highly regulated market. Major chemicals such as glyphosate (herbicide), atrazine (herbicide), chlorpyrifos (insecticide), and many others are constantly under review, and face the risk of being phased out or outright banned if more environment-friendly alternatives are available. This report provides a comprehensive outlook on the global crop protection chemicals market with respect to various regions, product types, as well as applications.

Increasing demand for agricultural products and decreasing arable land are driving the global crop protection market where farmers face the challenge to increase the productivity of crops. Other reasons for the growth of this market are the profitability margin in this segment, adoption of modern farming & protected agriculture, change in farming practices & technology, and high returns on investments. The global crop protection chemicals market is projected to reach a value of $69,614.3 million by 2019 with an estimated CAGR of 5.5% from 2014 to 2019.

The global market for crop protection is dominated by a few large multinational corporations, such as Syngenta (Switzerland), BASF (Germany), DuPont (U.S.), and Dow AgroSciences (U.S.). These participants together accounted for the major share of the crop protection market in 2013. Agreements, partnerships, and collaborations are the most common strategies followed by these companies, which are projected to give a new dimension to this market from 2014 to 2019.

The global market for crop protection chemicals, in terms of active ingredient volume, is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.2% from 2014 to 2019.

North America dominates the global crop protection market and has the largest market share in terms of revenue followed by the Asia-Pacific market. North America and Europe are mature markets and are dominated by a few major players. To survive intense competition, companies in this region are focused on new product development.
