Concerns related to the use of synthetic pesticides in Canada have been escalating for some time now, though control of infestations using them is being continued, albeit on a reduced scale. Volume and value demands for pesticides in the region are expected to sustain respective 2014-2020 CAGRs of 5.2% and 6.7%, with crop-based applications scoring over non-crop-based applications in terms of both size and growth rate. The demand for biopesticides is anticipated to register a faster growth, as opposed to synthetic pesticides, though the latter forms the larger of the two major pesticide product groups.
Prior to being employed, pesticides in Canada have to undergo strict scientific evaluations for ascertaining safety in use when label directions are followed for the intended purpose. This forms a key aspect of getting registration approval for pesticides in the region. After the product is brought to the market, it is further monitored via a series of education, compliance and enforcement programs, with reviews of pesticides being conducted once in 15 years or sooner, based on the evolution of technology.
