Global demand for pesticides will rise 2.9 percent annually to 2014. Gains will reflect a reversal of declines in 2009, caused in part by a price drop for the leading herbicide, glyphosate. Herbicides and insecticides will remain the largest types. Central and South America will offer the best growth opportunities.
This study analyzes the $45 billion world pesticide industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1999, 2004 and 2009, and forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by product (e.g., herbicides, insecticides, fungicides), market (e.g., wheat, corn, rice, soybeans, consumer, commercial), world region and for 39 major countries.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 42 industry participants, including Bayer, Syngenta and BASF.
