Market Overview

The agricultural disinfectants market is projected to register a CAGR of 4.3% over the forecast period (2022-2027).

The COVID-19 pandemic forced many companies to temporarily close some of their manufacturing plants and placed restrictions on human movement, thus negatively impacting the demand for production inputs. Restrictions on transportation also led to logistics challenges in the industry.

Agricultural disinfectants are vital components used for crop and livestock protection. Proper disinfection is required to protect crops and livestock from harmful diseases. They are also used to sterilize microorganisms in plants and livestock. Agricultural disinfectants are

The Asia-Pacific region was the largest geographical segment of the agricultural disinfectants market. It is also projected to be the fastest-growing region globally, owing to the increasing livestock production and improved awareness about the need for the adoption of biosafety procedures in agriculture.

The overall market is driven by the increasing area under protected cultivation and the ban on antibiotics in livestock production, which, in turn, is driving the need for biosafety.

Key Market Trends

Growing Area Under Protected Cultivation

Various systems of protected cultivation, such as indoor farming, vertical farming, and hydroponics, also reduce biotic stresses on crops, such as attacks by pests and pathogens. Thus, protected cultivation has provided benefits such as crops with little or no pesticide residues. While the susceptibility of crops attacked by pathogens is minimal in protected cultivation, maintaining the protected cultivation facility to be free from pathogens borne from the construction material and equipment has become necessary to have 100% pest and pathogen control. Disinfectants are essential in sanitizing the protected cultivation facilities and equipment in the pre-planting stage to enable the crop to be free of pests and pathogens in its growth stage. The increased area under protected cultivation globally is expected to positively influence the market's growth.

Asia-Pacific Dominates the Overall Market

Asia-Pacific emerged as the region with the highest share in the overall agricultural disinfectants market. The increased production of livestock and the growth in the number of livestock farms, coupled with the increased penetration of protected cultivation, are driving the market for agricultural disinfectants in Asia-Pacific. Challenges, such as lack of awareness about scientific disinfection practices in agricultural remains and the sheer growth of the end-user industries, are expected to drive the market in the region over the forecast period.
