Agrochemicals Market To Reach USD 308.69 Billion By 2031, Driven By Surging Demand For Food Security

(MENAFN- Evertise Digital)

-< />
A new report by SNS Insider estimates the Agrochemicals Market will climb to USD 308.69 billion by 2031 from USD 236.12 billion in 2023, expanding at a CAGR of 3.4% between 2024 and 2031.

The necessity of feeding an expanding global population, coupled with limited arable land, is escalating the need for agrochemicals.

Farmers rely on fertilizers to enrich soils and boost crop yields, and the animal husbandry and feed sectors are positively impacting the market. The US feed industry holds a dominant position, with export values reaching USD 13 billion in 2020. Agrochemicals are vital for addressing shifting dietary demands stemming from rising affluence and combatting food insecurity which remains a pressing global challenge.

Precision agriculture plays a growing role in optimizing agrochemical use. Sensors and data analysis pinpoint crop needs, enabling farmers to target fertilizer and pesticide applications for maximum efficiency while reducing environmental impact.

Market Analysis

The global population is projected to hit 9 billion by 2050, placing enormous pressure on food production. Shrinking farmland adds to the challenge; for example, the UK's agricultural land area decreased from 17.27 million hectares in 2020 to 17.23 million in 2021. Agrochemicals play a crucial role in combating pests and diseases (responsible for up to 40% of annual crop losses) to optimize output within these constraints. Global herbicide, fungicide, and bactericide consumption figures from 2020 illustrate the growing reliance on crop protection chemicals.

Impact of the Russia-Ukraine War

The conflict has disrupted global fertilizer supply chains, particularly potash and nitrogen fertilizers. Russia and Belarus are major exporters, and sanctions have significantly impacted trade flows. This has driven up prices and created supply shortages, potentially hindering agricultural output and exacerbating food insecurity in vulnerable regions. Sanctions restricted Black Sea port access, and logistical challenges have led to reduced fertilizer exports from Russia and Belarus, a critical source of crop nutrients. Ukraine's grain export capacity has also been severely impacted. The constricted fertilizer supply, along with rising energy prices (important for fertilizer production), has driven up the prices of agrochemicals. This puts a cost burden on farmers globally.

Reduced fertilizer access or high prices could prompt farmers to cut back on fertilizer use, potentially impacting yields and worsening global food security, especially in regions already facing shortages. For Example, the price of urea, a widely used nitrogen fertilizer, surged significantly following the outbreak of the war, highlighting the volatility triggered by such a conflict.

The Asia Pacific region firmly held the largest share of the global agrochemicals market in 2023, surpassing 25% of total revenue.

Asia Pacific is home to some of the world's largest agricultural producers. Countries like India, China, and Japan heavily contribute to the demand for agrochemicals needed to optimize their cultivation of staple crops. China is the world's top manufacturer and exporter of pesticides. Moreover, India ranks among the leading producers of agrochemicals globally, demonstrating the region's capacity for meeting both internal and external demands. The agriculture sector significantly influences regional per capita income, fostering a robust market for agrochemicals to support agricultural productivity.
