Looking to buy the report?

Market Insights

The African pyrethroid insecticides market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.7% over the forecast period 2017-2022. These are widely used against a number of insects including household arthropods as they are low in toxicity to mammals and birds, and require very low doses to kill insects.

Pyrethroids, the synthetic derivatives of pyrethrins, have become one of the oldest and most widely used insecticides around the globe. The systemic insecticide acts as a nervous toxin and leads to paralysis and eventual death of the targeted insects.

Market Dynamics

The region’s growing population and decreasing farmlands have pushed farmers to increase their yields. Adoption of new farming practices by farmers all over the region through encouraging government support; coupled with the high performance of pyrethroids against insects are boosting the market. Product development, sustainable farming options and growing demand from developing regions are opportunities for growth. Pyrethroid insecticides have gained popularity due to their low application rate and environmental safety as compared to other classes of insecticides. However, issues over product labeling and popularity of bioinsecticide products may act as obstacles.

Market Segmentation

By active ingredients, the market is classified into permethrin, deltamethrin, allethrin/bioallethrin, cypermethrin, permethrin and other pyrethroids. They are also segmented by their usage in crops like cereals and grains, oilseeds, fruits, and vegetables etc. Non-crop utilization of insecticides in turfs, ornamentals etc. are also studied.

South Africa generates the largest demand in the region followed by Egypt.
