Market Overview

The Asia pacific molluscicides market is projected to register a CAGR of 3.4% during the forecast period 2020-2025. Molluscicides are the pesticides used for controlling mollusks (snails and slugs). The mollusk species have become one of the major threats causing huge agricultural losses. These species are majorly seen in cereal crops such as wheat, barley, oats, and also horticultural crops. The major drivers for this market include increasing adoption of agrochemicals, rising demand for high-value horticulture crops, and infestation of golden apple snail in the rice fields of Asia. Further, increasing awareness for mollusks control among farmers and the introduction of Green eco-friendly molluscicides products are expected to create growth opportunities for this market during the forecast period.

Scope of the report

Mollusks feed both above and below the surface of the ground, on seeds, seedlings, and plants, damaging shoots, roots, leaves, and flowers, therefore reducing plant stand and crop yield. Molluscicides market is categorized by product group into (Ferric Phosphate, Metaldehyde, Methiocarb, Niclosamide), By Application (Cereals and grains, Pulse and oil seeds, Fruits and vegetables, Plantation crops and other applications) and By Geography.

Key Market Trends

Rising demand for High Value Crops

Majorly grown cereal crops in Asia constitute Wheat, Maize, and Rice. Based on the application, the molluscicide market is segmented into cereals and grains, pulses and oilseeds, fruits and vegetables, plantation crops. The Cereals and grains segment dominates the market followed by fruits and vegetables. The overall increase in the usage of molluscicides in this segment is large because of the application of molluscicides to crops such as corn, rice, and wheat. The increase in crop losses due to snails and slugs is increasing every year. Despite these losses, growing demands for the production of these high-value crops in this region are creating an opportunity for the molluscicides market to grow during the forecast period.

Increasing Food Demand and Diminishing Arable Land

With a population of more than 4 billion people living in this region, the demand for food is also increasing at a wide range. Supplying food to this population has been a major concern as the arable land is been gradually decreasing. Thus, the usage of crop protection chemicals has been adopted by farmers in order to increase productivity. And so, there is a huge demand for molluscicides. According to the UN Population Division, the population in India, China, and Southeast Asia is expected to increase, accounting for more than 60% of the global population by 2050. Thus, increasing the usage of crop protection chemicals in this region, in order to increase food production for the growing population.
