The agricultural adjuvants market is estimated at USD 3.13 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 4.04 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 5.24% during the forecast period. The agricultural and environmental benefits associated with these adjuvant solutions are the major factors contributing to the growth of this market, globally. Due to the growing demand for agrochemicals and the adoption of effective protective measures for crop cultivation, the market for adjuvants is projected to grow in the coming years.

The agricultural adjuvants market is a relatively small sector in the crop protection chemicals industry; however, the market has been growing at a significant rate due to the increasing need for sustainable pest management in agricultural operations in developed countries. Strong research funding by key manufacturers for product development such as drift control and anti-foam agents is expected to drive the growth of the market over the next five years.

Activator adjuvants are estimated to dominate the market in 2018. The US and Brazil are the major countries to adopt adjuvants to improve pesticide efficacy. The increasing necessity for sustainable pesticides in American and European countries and the rising adoption of crop protection chemicals in developing countries for insecticide applications are the major factors boosting the demand for agricultural adjuvants. Surfactants is the major activator segment, which is estimated to account for the largest share in the global agricultural adjuvants market in 2018. The advent of biological surfactants and adjuvant solutions for biological inputs is an important driver for the adjuvants market.

The agricultural adjuvants market, in terms of formulation, is estimated to be dominated by in-formulation products in 2018. The convenience of use and reduced capital investment by farmers in these products are the major reasons that support the acceptance of in-formulation adjuvants among farmers. Farmers in the developing countries in Asia Pacific and Africa avoid expenditure on additional tank-mix adjuvants, and hence, pesticide manufacturers in these countries develop pesticides formulated with adjuvants, especially surfactants. However, owing to the increasing development of multiple adjuvants with unique functions, manufacturers have been developing tank-mix products in countries with higher adoption of innovative adjuvant formulations, such as North America and Europe, and hence, the segment is projected to be the fastest-growing in the coming years.

In this report, the chemical group in adjuvant formulation is classified into alkoxylates, sulfonates, organosilicones, and others, which include polyacrylates, phospholipids, and combination blends. The alkoxylates segment is estimated to account for the largest market share in 2018 since compounds of this chemical group are widely used in the formulation of surfactants. Ethoxylates and fatty alcohol alkoxylates are the two major sub-groups which are majorly used in adjuvant formulation.

Agricultural Adjuvants Market

North America is estimated to lead the market in 2018; followed by Europe, owing to the high adoption of adjuvants to complement pesticide consumption in countries such as Germany, France, the US, and Canada. Increasing growth of industrial and high-value crops and rising awareness among farmers about the benefits of adjuvants are expected to provide more scope for market expansion. Moreover, ongoing research & development activities on better and efficient adjuvant solutions also render scope for growth of the market.

The major factors restraining the growth of agricultural adjuvants are the inconsistent regulatory procedures for adjuvant products across the globe and increased production costs for end-use farmers. Also, the increasing number of bans on a few pesticide classes in European and North American countries due to the growing environmental concerns caused by higher application of pesticides in agriculture—have also impacted the market to a huge extent.

The global market for agricultural adjuvants is dominated by large players such as DowDuPont (US), Solvay (Belgium), Evonik Industries (Germany), Nufarm (Australia), and Croda International (UK). Some emerging players in the agricultural adjuvants market include BASF (Germany), Akzonobel (Netherlands), Huntsman Corporation (US), Helena Agri-Enterprises (US), Wilbur-Ellis (US), Stepan Company (US), Clariant (Switzerland), and BRANDT (US).
