The agrochemicals market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.2% from 2015 to reach a projected value of USD 250.5 Billion by 2020. The market growth is driven by increasing population demanding more food supply, rising technological advancement in the agricultural industry, limited availability of arable land, rising environmental concerns, and advances in plant breeding and management expertise all over the globe, leading to increased use of agrochemicals.

Depending upon crop types, the agrochemicals market is led by the cereals & grains segment, followed by the fruits & vegetables and oilseeds & pulses segments. The fruits & vegetables segment is the fastest growing crop type in the agrochemicals market. The trend of using agrochemicals, mainly pesticides, is rising on a large scale in regions where there is extensive production and cultivation of cereals, grains, fruits, and vegetables, leading to the growing market for agrochemicals for the mentioned crop types.

Among the types of agrochemicals, such as fertilizers and pesticides, fertilizers are used on a large scale due to their functional qualities of improving the nutritive value of the crops as well as soil, thus increasing the crop yield.

Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest market share for agrochemicals, followed by North America and Europe. China and India constituted the largest country-level markets in the Asia-Pacific region in 2014. Increasing food demand in these highly populous countries is raising the demand for agrochemicals to increase the crop yield, leading to the overall increase in the agrochemicals market in these countries. The usage of agrochemicals can be treated as a risk-hedging technique and can be considered as a safe investment which has led to increased sales of fertilizers and pesticides in the Asia-Pacific market. The agrochemicals market in Asia-Pacific is projected to grow with investments from several multinational manufacturers, especially in countries such as China, India, and Japan.
