Market Insights

The Asia-Pacific pyrethroid insecticides market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.9% 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

Need for land productivity and food production coupled with the high performance of pyrethroids against insects have led to a continuous market expansion for the industry. Product development, sustainable farming options and mounting demand from developing regions are opportunities for future growth. 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. Cereals and grains consumed the highest market in the use of insecticide products due to food safety and their wide variety of uses.

Asia-Pacific has the largest consumer base in the world. The rising disposable income, population, and food security have made Asia-Pacific, the region with maximum potential for growth. The emerging economies including China, India, Vietnam, and Thailand are the major consumers of pyrethroid insecticides for application in various cereal and grain crops.
