Market Overview

The Global Fungicide Market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 3.0% during the forecast period (2020-2025).

  • Factors driving the markets for fungicides include decreasing arable land, increasing population and the requirement of improving crop yields. Resistance of various fungus to the existing fungicides and the emergence of new diseases in plants has urged companies to find novel products to fight the new mutations of fungus and reduce the loss to farmers. The increasing demand for fungicides to fight the diseases in crops, is expected to drive the market during the forecast period.
  • On the other hand, regulatory authorities such as EPA (Environment Protection Agency) frequently come up with stringent laws related to curbing pesticide use for alleviating environmental damage and increasing consumer awareness about pesticide consumption, which is expected to be instrumental in slowing down growth in demand for fungicides.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic forced many companies in the fungicide market to halt their business operations, in order to comply with the new government rulings. This pause in operations is directly impacting the revenue flow of the fungicide market. Manufacturers were affected by the supply chain block of raw materials and intermediates, due to COVID-19. The cost of logistics increased quickly during the initial months of the pandemic. Thus, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic compelled the companies to rethink their strategies in the industry.

Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand from Developing Countries

As per the Food and Agriculture Organization, the total arable land for cereals, pulses, fruits, and vegetables is increasing in the region year after year, predominantly denoting the opportunities for the farmers to meet the increasing domestic and international food demand. Hence, in order to protect their crops against various fungal infestations, farmers are adopting the usage of fungicides. Over the last few years, demand for fungicides has shifted from developed regions to developing regions, due to several factors. In addition to endeavors aimed at restricting unnecessary utilization of fungicides, the industrial markets of North America, Western Europe, and Japan are likely to sustain below-average growth in the demand for fungicides over the coming half-a-decade, due to maturity in the markets.

Fungicides Market1

Asia-Pacific Dominates The Market

Asia-Pacific is among the largest consumer of fungicides in the market. There has been an enhanced investment in R&D for manufacturing novel, innovative, and cost-efficient solutions against fungi in crops in the region during the study period. The high production potential for grains, cereals, and vegetables in the region has increased the demand for fungicides in the market studied. Fungicides, especially SDHI fungicides, are often used in combination with other chemicals, are widely used for seed treatments in the region. For instance, Carboxin is often used, in combination with thiram, toward seed treatment of various crops, such as soybean, groundnut, cotton, and potato.​The increased demand for food among the growing population can be attributed to the need to enhance crop yield.
