Global Agrochemicals Market, By Crop Type (Cereals, Pulses and Oilseeds, Fruits and Vegetables, Lawns and Turfs, Others), Mode of Application (Foliar, Fertigation, Others), Form (Paints and Coatings, Pesticides, Chemicals, Gasoline, Printing, Rubber and Leather), Type (Fertilizers, Pesticides) – Industry Trends and Forecast to 2029
Market Analysis and Size
Agrochemicals are chemical or biological formulations that have been engineered to improve crop quality and yield. Fertilizers and pesticides are two types of agrochemicals. Fertilizers enhance the quality of crop by providing essential nutrients to the crop and soil, whereas pesticides protect crops by controlling, killing, or repelling pests and weeds that can harm the crop. Given the current global population scenario, increasing crop production within the existing arable land is critical to feed the world's population.
Data Bridge Market Research analyses that the agrochemicals market was valued at USD 209.4 billion in 2021 is expected to reach the value of USD 302.38 billion by 2029, at a CAGR of 4.70% during the forecast period of 2022 to 2029.
Agrochemicals are specialized chemicals and compounds that are used to protect and improve the quality of agricultural products. They are used in commercial plantation agricultural fields and units to protect produce from pests, weeds, and fungi while also increasing yield. Nitrogen, and potassic fertilizers, insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, rodenticides, phosphatic,molluscicides, nematicides, and pesticides are the most commonly used agrochemicals.

COVID-19 Impact on Agrochemicals Market
COVID-19 has had an impact on agrochemical production and supply. The global pandemic has had an impact on several industries around the world, including the agrochemicals market. A short-term labour scarcity and distribution bottlenecks caused a considerable disparity between the number of personnel necessary for pesticide production and those available in terms of supply. Crop production has also decreased due to a lack of laborers in large-scale plantations, reducing demand for agrochemicals during the pandemic.
