Market Overview

The Thailand crop protection chemicals market is projected to register a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period (2021-2026).

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the crop protection chemicals market in Thailand has been minimal, mainly due to reduced transportation barriers. The impact of lockdowns or disruptions has been exempted by the government for all types of agricultural activities; hence, there has been no such effect of the coronavirus outbreak. Instead, agrochemical companies have made double-digit profits as compared to last year due to the panic buying behavior of farmers.

The rapid increase in pesticide use in Thailand may be accounted for an increase in cash crops. Most pesticide-intensive crops, vegetables, and fruits in Thailand are the highest cash value-added crops. As farmers have gradually switched from low value-added to high value-added crop production, the overall consumption rate of pesticides has naturally increased. Knoell Thailand provides registration services for pesticides in Thailand. The Office of Agricultural Economics (OAE) and the Office of Agriculture Regulations (OAR) have shown that the usage of pesticides has increased significantly in recent years. The utilization of pesticides by Thai farmers increased from 21,800.0 metric ton in 2014 to 35,287.0 metric ton in 2018. The favorable tax policy of the Thai government toward the growing market of agrochemical import, promotion of sustainable and integrated pest management techniques, and increased intensity of land use are the major drivers for the market.

Scope of the Report

Crop protection may be defined as the measures taken to protect cultivated plants against diseases, pests, and weeds and grasses. Majorly, four kinds of pesticides have been considered in the report, which include insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, and other types of pesticides. In addition, the report takes into account both synthetic pesticides and bio-pesticides for a comprehensive analysis.

The Thailand crop protection chemicals market is segmented by origin (synthetic and bio-based), product (insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, and other products), and application (grains and cereals, oilseeds and pulses, fruits and vegetables, turf and ornamentals, and applications).

Key Market Trends

Increase in Cash Crops with Higher Application Rate

The most pesticide-intensive crops in Thailand, viz., vegetables and fruits, are also the highest cash value-added crops. Thailand is the world's largest producer and exporter of natural rubber, accounting for roughly one-third of the world's production. As farmers have gradually switched from low value-added to high value-added crop production, the overall consumption of pesticides has naturally increased. In order to raise yield, farmers have intensified pesticide use in the production of all crops. This is reflected in the increasing share of pesticide costs in total production costs. More cash crops, reduction in the prices of pesticides, awareness about increasing crop yield by mitigating risks posed by pests and diseases, and the promotion of pesticide use by the government are some of the factors that relate to this rapid rise in pesticide application in Thailand.

The Fruits and Vegetables Segment Dominates the Market

For the herbicide market, plantation crops and the rice sector are of great importance in Thailand. Similarly, for the insecticide market, the most important crops are rice and other horticulture products, while for the fungicide market, the horticultural sector is the most important. A research study undertaken by the Biodiversity Sustainable Agriculture Food Sovereignty Action Thailand (Biothai) found that the highest levels of pesticide residues were present in fruits and vegetables. Also, around 62.0% of such fruits and vegetables included more than one pesticide as residue. However, the pesticide use intensity in Thailand is still lower than that of Vietnam, though it is higher than that of Laos and Cambodia. The application of pesticides in fruits and vegetables has been the highest over the past several years, and this trend is likely to continue in the future.
