Global Fungicides Market – Key Driving Factors

  • The global population is increasing at an alarming rate. The population rose from 7.2 billion in 2015 to 7.5 billion in 2019. This has led to massive concerns about food production and security. With such growing demand, it has become even more imperative that agricultural yield stays unharmed so that it can cater to the burgeoning needs. This has thus been a pivotal factor that has helped in fueling the growth of the global fungicides market.
  • Another important factor that has helped in driving the growth of the global fungicides market is the increasing awareness about the use of such agrochemicals for improving the overall yield.
  • In addition to this, there has been a strong influx of investment and funding from both public as well as private sector that has helped in further development of the fungicides market.
  • A key trend that has been observed in the global fungicides market is of increasing preference towards eco-friendly alternatives for synthetic fungicides. This has prompted manufacturers to develop such products and help in improving the sustainability of their products. Moreover, these organic products are much more beneficial for the yield as well as the soil. This factor is also expected to help in pushing up the market growth.
  • This trend is expected to bring a fundamental transformation in the overall growth of the global market as the use of organic insecticides, herbicides, bio-based fungicides, and nematicides continues to grow.

Global Fungicides Market – Key Restraining Factors

  • One of the biggest restraining factor for the growth of the global fungicides market is the ill-effect of overuse of synthetic products on the environment. Synthetic fungicides are not only harmful for the crop yield, but also for the soil.
  • Another important restraining factor for the market growth is the resistance developed by fungi to the existing fungicides. Untimely and excessive use of these products can lead to developing fungi resistance. This makes the use of current products pointless and thus slowdown the market growth.
