BCC Research Finds Governments Focusing on Bio-Based Agrochemicals to Reduce Social and Environmental Impacts

May 22, 2015

Wellesley, Mass., May 22, 2015 – Despite the agrochemical market's enormous potential, pesticides and fertilizers are chiefly responsible for the pollution of surface water and other types of environmental pollution. BCC Research shows how populous countries such as India and China are still contributing to the growth of the agrochemical market. The global market was valued at nearly $189.8 billion in 2013 and is expected to reach $257.5 billion in 2019, after increasing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.4% during the forecast period (2014 through 2019).

Fertilizers running into rivers and streams can decay into substances that are harmful and raise methane and ammonia levels. Moreover, the formation of algae also depletes the presence of oxygen in rivers, killing the natural aquatic habitat. Thus, overuse of fertilizers impacts the environment adversely. European countries are the least involved in this market due to government regulations that discourage the adoption of agrochemical-based applications. Furthermore, the value of agrochemical sales, especially pesticides, has decreased in the past few years in countries, such as France and the U.K., contributing to the decrease in the overall growth of the market.

“Approvals of new chemicals are difficult to obtain due to the harmful effects of synthetic-based agrochemicals on humans, plants and animals,” says BCC Research analyst Yojana Jeevane. “Governments are focusing on bio-based agrochemicals instead of synthetic-based products to reduce the social and environmental impacts of chemicals used in producing agrochemicals.”

Global Markets for Agrochemicals (CHM054B) presents an in-depth analysis of the global agrochemical market by type and geographic regional markets. It covers the major categories of agrochemicals used for crop protection across the globe.
