Market Insigths

The African organophosphate pesticide market has been estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% over the forecast period 2017-2022.

Organophosphates were initially developed as highly toxic biological warfare agents in 1940s, and have become one of the most widely used pesticides around the globe. They work by blocking the enzyme acetylcholinesterase causing nervous and respiratory damage, resulting in the death of insects/pests.

Market Dynamics

The market is driven by the need to increase crop yield and efficiency due to the region’s growing population and reducing farmlands. Adoption of new farming practices through government support, coupled with high performance and availability of organophosphates against insects and pests are boosting the market. Product development and growing demand from developing regions are opportunities for the industry’s growth. However, the toxicity of chemicals towards environment leading to regulatory issues, high research and development costs, and a girth of alternative options may restrain the market.

Market Segmentation

By active ingredients, the market is classified into parathion, malathion, chloropyriphos, diazinon, dimethoate, glyphosate, methamidophos and other organophosphates. For various crops, diverse pesticides are used as they are classified into herbicide, insecticides, fungicides and other pesticides. The market is also segmented by their usage in crops like cereals and grains, oilseeds, fruits, and vegetables etc. Non-crop utilization of organophosphates in turfs, ornamentals etc. is also studied.

South Africa generates the largest demand in the region, followed by Egypt. The rising disposable income, population, and food security are the major reasons for growing usage of pesticides in the region.
