Agricultural Fumigants Market Analysis
The agricultural fumigants market is projected to record a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period 2022-2027.
The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the operations of the crop protection chemicals market, including fumigants. The pandemic affected supply chain networks, resulting in losses for companies and farmers. In terms of supply, a short-term shortage of migrant laborers amid distribution bottlenecks created a wide gap between the number of workers required for production. Some other restraints included customs clearances, export permits, import permits, and phytosanitary certificates.
The agricultural fumigants market is driven by factors, like rapid technological advancements in the agricultural sector, growing concerns over post-harvest losses, and a shift in the advanced farming practices, which have led to increased yields. The use of fumigants during storage helps in the reduction of storage loss. Thus, the demand for fumigants is expected to increase as the use of fumigants is an effective and economical method to reduce post-harvest losses.
A widely used fumigant for storing agricultural commodities while offering protection against insects and rodents, phosphine-based fumigants have emerged as the largest segment among all types of global fumigants. North America dominates the market. With rapid investments in technology and R&D, many new varieties of products are being developed with less toxicity and more efficiency. The growth of the agricultural fumigants market can be attributed to several factors, such as the increased inclination of consumers for improving the quality of agricultural output, changing farming practices, and advanced storage technology. However, fumigants cause several problems, including possible phytotoxicity, depending on the type of crop and its variety, seasonal conditions, humidity, temperature, fumigant concentration, and duration of treatment. Therefore, it is recommended to be used by professional fumigators only due to its high toxicity as a respiratory poison.
Agricultural Fumigants Industry Segmentation
Fumigants are pesticides that, when applied to soil, form a gas to control pests that live in the soil and disrupt plant growth and crop production. The agricultural fumigants market is segmented by type (methyl bromide, chloropicrin, phosphine, metam sodium, 1,3-dichloropropene, and other agricultural fumigants), method of application (soil and warehouse), form (solid, liquid, and gas), application (crop-based and non-crop-based), and geography (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, and Africa). The report offers market size and forecasts in terms of value (USD million) for all the above segments.

Agricultural Fumigants Market Trends
This section covers the major market trends shaping the Agricultural Fumigants Market according to our research experts:
Growing Agricultural Production
In line with increasing agricultural production, the demand for fumigants has been witnessing an upward trend over the years. The use of fumigation has increased at all levels of the grain and oilseeds supply chain, emerging as the main insect management option at the farm level. For farm-level storage and in silos, fumigation is among the most preferred methods to prevent the build-up of insect infestations while avoiding pest resistance. However, the available active substances are constrained to a limited number of fumigants and storage insecticides due to legislative restrictions. Methyl bromide (MB) fumigation is an effective treatment to ensure that products pose a minimal phytosanitary risk. While the European Union has banned the use of MB, Canada still requires it as the only approved treatment for the quarantine and pre-shipment applications of some products.
The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations has predicted that agricultural productivity is likely to increase by 70% by 2050 in order to meet the growing demand for food. The demand for agricultural crops is expected to rise to around 6,759 million ton by 2050. Global cereal production increased from 2906.5 million ton in 2018 to 2996.1 million ton in 2020. Thus, the demand for agricultural warehouses, storage technologies, and associated products, like fumigants, is anticipated to grow in the long run. In warehouses, pests damage most crops, and the use of fumigants decrease the loss of agricultural products. Therefore, this is expected to boost demand for the agricultural fumigants market across the world.
