Driving Factors

Use of Insecticides for Crop Production and Protection

 Wheat, rice, and corn are the most common insecticide-treated crops in the cereals and grains sector. Grains are grown in almost every nation, the worldwide demand for pesticides is significant and this growth is projected to continue over the upcoming years. Total grain output has been expanding on a global basis and with the increase in cereal production and distribution, it became increasingly important for farmers to focus on quality and yield by using appropriate pesticides.


Increase in demand for agrochemicals

The different types of agrochemicals such as insecticides, fungicides, and herbicides among others help to increase the productivity of the crops. Agriculture is a highly varying sector comprising operations from small farms to large multinational holdings. The rapid use of agricultural activities on account high demand for food products from the growing population has increased the consumption level of insecticide. Insecticides help to reduce the loss of food crops by removing the unfavorable effects of insects. According to the National Horticulture Database published by National Horticulture Board, fruit production in India stood at 99.08 million metric tonnes during 2019-20 and accounted for 6.63 million hectares of area under cultivation of fruits. Thus, an increase in demand for agrochemicals is boosting the growth of the global Insecticides market.


Rise in Research to Develop New Variants of Products

Insecticide resistance usually develops as a result of increased reliance on insecticide-based pest control of insect’s pests. This tolerance grows rapidly as the heat increases, allowing insects or lice to proliferate more quickly.

Continues investigation to develop new product varieties, boost product releases, and increase operational company revenues, all benefitting the worldwide insecticides industry. 


Restraining Factors

Poisonousness Related to Insecticides

Insecticides are chemicals used to kill insects. Some insecticides are also dangerous to humans. Many insecticides can cause poisoning after being inhaled, swallowed, or absorbed through the skin. Symptoms may include eye tearing, coughing, heart problems, and breathing difficulties, requiring proper handling and proper safety practices, which is restricting insecticides' acceptability for residential use. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) banned the use of Endosulfan in the US in 2018.


Market Segmentation

The Insecticides market share is classified into the product, origin, application, and insect pest type.


On the basis of Product: On the basis of product, the global insecticides market is segmented into Organophosphates, Pyrethroids, Carbamates, and Others. Among these, the organophosphate segment held the largest insecticides market share in 2021, with a share of over 25.9%. Organophosphate is considered one of the most versatile classes of synthetic insecticides. The major compounds used in organophosphate are diazinon, malathion, dichlorvos, parathion, and methyl parathion.


On the basis of Application: Based on the application, the global insecticides market is segmented into Cereals & Grains, Oilseeds & Pulses, Fruits & Vegetables, and Others.  Insecticides are widely used on a range of crops such as cereals, grains, oilseeds, pulses, fruits, and vegetables among others. The cereals & grains application segment dominated the global market in 2022 and accounted for the largest share of more than 41.90% of the overall market revenue. Its high share is driven by the rising consumption of cereals & grains, such as wheat, oats, corn,  rice, and barley, due to their nutritional benefits. According to Food and Agriculture Organization, the production of primary crops was 9.3 billion tonnes in 2019 which was 52.8% more than in the year 2000. Thus, the growth in agricultural production increases the demand for insecticides.


On the basis of Origin: On the basis of origin, the global insecticides market is categorized into Synthetic Insecticides, Bio-Insecticides, and Others The synthetic insecticide segment is dominant over other product types of insecticides because of the increasing population, rising food consumption, shrinking farmland, and crop loss due to insects and pathogens are all major drivers driving the global market for agricultural chemicals, particularly synthetic insecticides.


On the basis of Insect Pest Type: On the basis of insect pest type, the global Insecticides market is differentiated into sucking pest insecticide and biting and chewing pest insecticide. The sucking pest insecticide segment was the highest contributor to the market because using sucking pest insecticide is followed on a large scale for pest control aphids, thrips, and other sucking pests. It is a more effective and faster method as compared to other methods.
