The plant growth regulators market is estimated to be valued at USD 2.11 Billion in 2017 and is projected to reach a value of USD 2.93 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.8% during the forecast period. The global demand for plant growth regulators is increasing significantly due to growing demand for organic food. The market is further driven by factors such as rise in the need for food security for the growing population, advancement in farming practices & technologies, and high opportunities in developing countries.

On the basis of type, the plant growth regulators market was led by the cytokinins segment in 2016. It provides benefits such as delayed plant ageing and prevention of leaf senescence. Cytokinins also find wide usage in North American countries.

The plant growth regulators market, on the basis of crop type, is segmented into fruits & vegetables, cereals & grains, oilseed & pulses, and turf & ornamentals. The fruits & vegetables segment had the second-largest market share; this can be attributed to growing health consciousness among consumers and rising incomes have boosted the consumption of a wide variety of products, particularly fruits & vegetables. In North America and Europe, health concerns are driving the demand for fruits & vegetables, as consumers prefer healthier and more nutritious options in their diet.

The market, based on formulation, is segmented into water-dispersible & water-soluble granules, solutions, and wettable powders. The water-dispersible & water-soluble granules segment had the largest market share. Water-dispersible granules provide greater stability and ease in handling during supply chain activities and it is projected to be the fastest-growing formulation in the plant growth regulators market in agriculture.

Europe and Asia Pacific are the dominant regions in the plant growth regulators market. Owing to the decreasing agricultural land in Europe, optimization of available arable land has gained increasing importance in the region, increasing the demand for plant growth regulators. Major countries contributing significantly toward the growth of the Asia Pacific region include China, Japan, India, and Australia & New Zealand. The rising investment in agricultural activities in developing countries contribute to the growing demand for plant growth regulators in the Asia Pacific region. The increasing demand for organic food is further expected to further boost the market in the Asia Pacific region.

Plant Growth Regulators Market

The major restraining factor for the plant growth regulators market is the long approval period for new products.

Companies such Syngenta (Switzerland), BASF (Germany), Bayer CropScience (Germany), Nufarm (Australia), and ADAMA (Israel) together accounted for a share of more than half of the plant growth regulators market. These companies have a strong presence in Europe and the Asia Pacific region. They also have manufacturing facilities across these regions and a strong distribution network.
